Freshmen daughter dating senior guy
Remember, these guys only learned how to drive a car a handful of years ago, so their emotional maturity isn't at the level you assume it is.If you go into the college dating pool with some advice, you're less likely to get hurt.He wants someone to take care of him, which isn't a great trait for a future boyfriend. This guy will always try to be the "superior" one of the two, and pretty soon, you'll question every action you make.
And I’m the one to tell them: Lower your expectations. When I was a freshman, I walked around with a Molly Ringwald-like, “Sixteen Candles” hope that all high school boys were like Jake Ryan, a strapping young man looking for someone to love. In reality, all freshman boys, most sophomore boys, and probably a good half of junior and senior boys are just, well, boys.
In sum, freshman girls, don’t walk around hoping your 14-year-old homecoming date will be like the ones you see on movies and TV. I’m here to tell you what he will be, as both the mother of a 14-year-old boy and the survivor of a freshman year homecoming date. And who is kind and good, as well as handsome and funny, but is still just a kid.
He will be a kid who might still drool on his pillow when he sleeps. And to that mother who wants my son to ask her daughter to the dance?
You'll be scoping out fellow naive undergrads from the moment you start to unpack your luggage, but listen to me before numbers and emojis are exchanged — there are many, many people you shouldn't date during your first year of college. When you're a junior, you'll look back at those guys, and wonder what you were thinking.
Please, let me spare you the disgusting nostalgia, so you won't waste your time. Guys are equally excited about their dating prospects in college, and the enthusiasm over getting the girl will probably lead to a lot of teen boy behavior.
