You are physically older, but the fact that you are now on a degree programme does not mean that you have instant maturity. A lot of people seem to think that they HAVE to try out new things simply because they are ‘older’. This is not the case. If you aren’t comfortable, don’t do it. It really is that simple!
This applies both before the relationship becomes serious and while it’s ongoing. Being in a relationship with someone that encourages you to try new things can be a positive thing, but encouragement and pressure are not always the same thing. Never allow yourself to feel like decisions are being made for you, you have just as much say in the relationship as the other person does.
I’m sure you’ve heard it all before, I certainly have, but it seems that people forget the simple things very quickly. Be sure to make your happiness the primary focus at all times- be selfish!!! (as long as you aren’t hurting others)
