High school senior dating college junior
You keep your eye on his reflection in the mirror, but turn away too quickly when he catches you looking. — he's still looking, so you look away once more, and then at the floor, and then at your i Phone, and then spend the next five minutes stretching your left calf and creating a new Spotify playlist. He looks like the kind of guy your mom always wanted you to date, but every time she visits you, you're going to have to disappoint.He's still not your boyfriend, because he's still with the girl he's been dating since he was 14. He treats you like you're related to him, and he never looks too long at any girl.This classroom crush will have you racking up the extra credit, and doing overtime in office hours.You take bets with your fellow smitten classmates about how old he is, and hope you'll eventually swipe his way on Tinder.You triple-check your writing assignments, and even have your roommate do a once-over to make sure you have no Freudian slips of titillating typos like "thong" for "thing," or "sex" for "six."You try not to notice him, but you swear you can feel his enigmatic eyes staring at the back of your head while you're typing lecture notes you'll never read again.This dark, brooding, international relations man of mystery has you all hot and bothered before you even take your seat in Global Think Tanks, Policy Networks, & Governance.You decide to look extra perky and full of health the next time you two "happen to be" doing laundry at the same time. Survivor of three more years of college than you, he's a downright scholar — learned, experienced, the most professional pre-professional.You also decide to find yourself a better, more hygienic, love interest, because going six weeks between laundry sessions is cramping your style. Sophomore guys, who look like burly men compared to the boys you just left behind in high school, look like infantile amateurs in his presence.
We can all admit it's probably just the pure proximity of this guy, and subsequent frequency of your interactions, that make him a beckoning blip on your radar.You've signed up for your courses, you've doubled your tuition on textbooks, and you've situated yourself in your brand new dorm (wall decals and all).
