Courting Disaster, my weekly comic about sex, love, and relationships updates every Friday. You'll laugh your pants off.
Every once in a while, we have a week with a bonus question, and this is one of those weeks.
A reader writes... Q.: I'm 18 and in college. I've dated a few girls while in high school, but "accidentally" hooked up with a girl whom I had feelings for a long time. I say accidentally because I always assumed she only wanted to be friends, and just felt like confessing my feelings before leaving for college. The few months we dated before college were great, but then I went to college and she was planning on joining the Navy.
I decided to break things off, since we wouldn't see each other, but she's now decided to attend the same university as me and go in to teaching instead. While I approve of this decision, and am glad that this means we can be together next year, I also feel that she changed her life plans to be with me and that seems to put extra pressure on the relationship. We're taking a break right now, since we're so far away from each other, and I've had much more satisfying sex while in college.
In summation, am I paranoid about her changing her plans putting pressure on us staying together? And, at my age, is it a good idea to "settle" already, even though I've only dated about 5 or 6 women in my life?
Don't answer here... go on over to the CD site and offer some advice.
