Don’t kid yourself

Dear Breakup Girl,

Hi! I am a senior college student, and believe it or not, my boyfriend for ten months is just a senior high school student. Dig that?

Any way, I’ve been thinking about this for quite a long time. I always get paranoid and feel insecure in our relationship. Sometimes I feel like I don’t trust him anymore. Maybe because he has hurt me a lot, or he is just plain insensitive. Is it because he is still a kid? I think that sometimes, he is mature enough. Please help me.

Dear Betty Joy,

I am about to sound like your mother.

No, I do not “dig that.”

The four years between, say, 34 and 38 are one thing. But the four years between high school senior and college senior are…light years. That’s light years, not years of enlightenment. I’m not saying he’s a bad person; he may very well be “mature enough” … for his peers. I mean, I like to have younguns around now and then to remind me of the difference between Everclear and Clearasil … but that does not a relationship make. With all due respect, the whole thing strikes me as just plain weird. You might be on the Dean’s List in school, but here at B.G.U., you’re on the Breakup List.
