Ok, I'm a young man. 19 years old. I like this one girl, and she likes me. I have never had a serious relationship before, but I'd like to try it out. We both have our virginity. This thing has been building up over the past month or so. I decided I wanted to study abroad next semester back in September, because I was bored with America and let's face it, living in Europe and studying is a great adventure. She was planning on studying abroad two semesters from now, and she's been telling me she wishes I could go to Europe at the same time as her and her roommate (who is one of my best friends). Some facts about me studying abroad: It is costing more than my parents thought it would. I really wanted to go, but now I feel sad. I signed a lease for an apartment next year and would have to find a sub-leaser for it. My parents already bought the plane ticket for me. I have not picked any classes for next semester, and I have not declared a major yet. Studying abroad would help me begin my major I'm thinking of (either poli-sci or history or both) If I were over there I know I'd regret it If I stay here and never get to go abroad, I feel I'll regret it. My friends are going abroad, not to where I'm going, but we'd visit eachother. I never made any serious advancements with this girl because I was actually afraid this would happen. Basically, my choices are: stay here because of a relationship (always has a possibility of not working out), my parents would also be out about 1000 dollars if the plane ticket can't be refunded or stick to my own plans and probably have a good time, but have a feeling of regret for what could have been.
