I’m 18 and finishing my high school years in three weeks. As soon as I finish my last exam, I’m moving in a friend’s flat for two weeks. He has an available room and proposed it to me. I like him more than a friend, and he has a girlfriend for three years who will not be living in the flat (for a mysterious reason) and who is a very pretty and nice girl, but they seem to go through weird periods. He is also six years older than me.
I have been living kind of “independently” in a foreign country since I was 16. I’ve been moving houses a few times but never in my friends’ houses, just with weird housemates/creeps (so I can concentrate a little bit on my studies).
Anyway, this guy is so hot, really nice, and really funny (really ideal to summarize the story). He talks to me every single night and texts me probably everyday, and it’s always him who comes around. He also picked me up after school a few times. My general feeling after all this is that I think he just considers me as a friend but I’m not sure. Or it makes him feel good to have a younger girl blushing every time we talk (not every time). What’s going on? Are we just friends? Am I getting in a weird jealousy/fucked-up couple game between him and his girlfriend? Am I allowed to have sex with him without feeling like a total slut? I just think the situation is very awkward.
I’m leaving this foreign country in a month and a half forever and I probably won’t see him much after that, but I think I have principles in life: to not get with boys who have girlfriends because I got my heart broken into pieces when I knew my first love cheated on me, and I don’t want to have a Macbeth tragedy following me around. But I like him. Really.
Should I still move in with him (for my ten last days in this country)?
P.S.: I apologize for all the grammar mistakes that could have been left there, English is not my first language.
You know what? Do it. Move in there for ten days. Fuck it. You’ll probably hook up. Shit will get awkward. You might expect things — but it’s 10 days. Open that box and get inside and have fun, and then you’ll be gone. I’m not saying this is great advice, but would I do it? Yeah, I’m pretty sure I would.
This guy is a creep anyway, so just do you and get yours while the gettin’ is good.
