I would date a senior,” said Chris Dial, a freshman from Armstrong Atlantic State University.
“I like being able to have someone to depend on but not having to carry the weight of someone younger and less experienced than me.
They have been together for more than two years now.
But if the maturity is there, does it really matter if they were in high school less than a year ago? I wouldn’t say there isn’t a limit, I think some age differences are too big, but a freshmen and a senior doesn’t seem too bad.” My brother is 22 years old and his boyfriend is 10 years older than him.
You have to remember though, there are two people making the same decision in a relationship — the decision to be together.
“I typically date individuals that are older than me because I feel like they are more responsible…
If they already knew what life they had ahead of them, maybe, but other than that no, I would not date a freshman.” So apparently it isn’t just a matter of maturity, but timing.
COED MAGAZINE AUGUST 2006 BY JULIA ALLISON When I began my freshman year, I read a little book called “Making the Most Out of College.” It featured dozens of upperclass students and recent grads giving advice on various topics: grades, professors, dating, extracurriculars.The specifics were almost irrelevant, because all echoed an identical sentiment: “If I had only known then what I know now.” News flash: You will feel this way in four years no matter what you do.
