Ok guys, Im kinda in a spot. I need some advice.....I've been talking to this girl since about the middle of June. Her and I do basically everything a couple does,cuddle, hold hands, make outs, basically everything outside of screwing (which almost happened today but didnt because I didnt have a condom and she doesnt turn 16 until september, Im 18 today).But she doesnt consider us a couple. She said she talked to her last boyfriend for a good year before they became a couple, and he hit her when they did start going together. This is where my problem comes in. On one hand, I dont really feel like waiting a damn year or more to be "official" with this girl. But on the other, She is the first girl that has really actually cared about me. She goes as far as lending me money for gas to come see her (she lives in Louisville, KY and I live in a little po-dunk town in southern IN, I realize I need to be paying for myself but my town is shit central to get a job of any kind.) And last but not least, as much as Im afraid to say it, I think Im falling in love with this chick and I have no idea how she feels back. Could her last boyfriend hitting her have anything to do with it? I dont know because she says Im the complete opposite of this jackass. I know this sounds like the typical emo-tastic teenager pouring his heart out and that relationships come and go, but Im confused as hell on what to do. On a side note....shes coming up to go to a relative of mines wedding in September, and staying the night with me. Should I wait and see how things go until then? Like I said Im confused as hell and need some advice from someone that has alittle more experiance relationship/dating wise then me. Thanks!
