Sophomore dating a senior

You could spend hours in class daydreaming & doodling hearts, and not having to worry about where you’ll end up at the end of the semester.

You didn’t have to add the pressure of graduate school, job applications, and the possibilities of moving to another state to your list of topics with your significant other.

Crap—I accidentally liked a photo on his Instagram from 37 weeks ago! Sophomore Year: I know that I've been friends with my BGF since third grade and I've totally never thought of him in that way, but now I think I'm starting to fall for him.

You’ve figured out the quirks of your teachers, whether attendance is part of your grade, and you’ve also realized that you might need to switch your study group.

All the essentials you need to have a successful semester have become apart of your routine, but if you happen to be in your senior year of college, then your routine might be a little more stressful.

It's the only time we've ever really spoken, but I know he's the one.

I constantly Insta stalk him, and he seems super cool.

I never really had it in me to actually ask him out, but I know that a lot of other teenagers can be a little intimidated by the prospect of asking out somebody who isn’t in your year or grade at school.

Well, that doesn’t mean that you should totally give up hope. Seniors have to worry about college apps, college visits, a mountain of homework and having a social life at the same time.

Some seniors don't want to be tied down with anybody who is a little younger beyond casual hook ups because they know that they'll be moving on with their lives and away from high school while you're, well, still in high school. Have you had a crush on an older student when you were in high school?

By now everyone has settled back into the hustle & bustle of the semester.

Or that I drive by his house sometimes to see if his car is there. I mean I could totally be driving to a friend's house or something. He even knows exactly how I like my grande mocha—soy milk, extra whip, and extra hot…like him.

College: OMG these guys are even more immature than high schoolers! I love staring at him in class, and I've seen him around at parties.

Don't ask why, but some--especially some who might be considered competition--might not take too kindly to anyone younger having their eyes set on someone their age. You might discover that this cool, older guy or gal might seem more mature than they really are.
