I’ve had a crush on this guy for a really long time, and this summer, I figured out he felt the same way about me. I had an amazing summer with him, and we were together all the time. We were in the same youth group, so we went on a lot of trips together this summer (Dallas, Lookout Mountain, Whitewater rafting, camping).
On the bus ride home from camp, he sat by me and told me how he felt. We’ve both never been in a relationship before, but he’s unlike anyone I’ve ever met. He puts God and others before himself in every situation and is such a great guy.
The only problem is he’s older. I’m a sophomore in high school (but mature for my age), and he’s a freshman in college. The age gap doesn’t bother either of us, but his parents don’t really approve. My parents do approve, though, since they know him so well.
We’ve kept in touch since he went to college this year, and I wrote him a letter a while back, and I’ve been too scared to mail it. Should I send it? And what should we do about his parents?
