DEAR ABBY: I'm a senior (girl) in high school and have been dating a sophomore even though he's less than a year younger than I am.
(I'm very young for my grade.) We have a lot in common and I think we both love each other a lot.
Next fall, I'm planning on going to a local community college, but I won't be too far away.
I know college will be a chance for me to meet new people and I don't want to limit my chances, but if I'm still interested in dating him, would it be "proper"?
I was already hesitant about dating him because he was younger, although I knew if the situation was reversed it wouldn't be a problem.
Assuming everything still works out between us, is it OK for a college girl to date a high school boy? I know things may change before fall, but I'm getting anxious about it now.
He has already said that he would still like to date me if I want to, so it's basically up to me.
-- ANXIOUS IN THE MIDWEST DEAR ANXIOUS: As far as I know, there is no rule forbidding a college freshman continuing to date someone who is still in high school.
