Will you ultimately resent your boyfriend or girlfriend for keeping you from making a move on the guy or girl you'e been talking to all night? Do you realistically see a future together beyond these roadblocks? But it might be worth hearing your parents' two cents, too.
If they think you'll be better off breaking up, hear them out.
They've been through their fair share of relationships -- maybe even situations similar to what you're going through right now -- and only want the best for you.
What are your thoughts on staying together or breaking up before college?
Dating in high school can turn your world upside down: One minute, you're nervously decoding every ounce of meaning from your crush's texts; the next, you're making out in hallways and updating your status to Facebook official. But staying together for college isn't a cake walk, either.
But once graduation rolls around, every couple needs to decide whether they want to stay together or part ways before college. They run the gamut from sad to infuriating, awkward to embarrassing, no matter who chose to end it.
If you aren't willing to spend a few days every months traveling back and forth to visit each other, a breakup might be best. In high school, you more or less do the same things as your peers.
And in between visits, frequent communication is key in order to stay in touch. Will you regret missing out on fun events on your own campus? But when you're cramming for midterms or rushing Greek life, will your boyfriend or girlfriend understand what you're going through? A year might not feel like a big age gap, but when one person is in college and one is in high school, it can feel like you're living in two separate worlds.There are some pros to dating someone who isn’t in school. They aren’t the broke college student you are, so you’ll get to “go out” more- even if it’s just to eat.They’ll try to help you with your classwork, since they don’t have their own to worry about.They’ll be concerned with money and finances in a way that you don’t fully understand yet. They’ll never really experience what it’s really like to go to frat parties, or to be involved with things around campus.Your family, or at least some members of it, will inevitably judge you.Let us know in the comments below or tweet @Huff Post Teen!
