Hey, I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice on how to proceed in my current relationship. First off, I know that I'm only 16, and I have no illusion that the chances that I spend the rest of my life with this girl are EXTREMELY low, but I still want some advice for future reference, and so I can make the best out of these years of my life. Secondly, I know that nobody will be able to give me spot on advice about what I should do, but I'm just looking for some ideas on what I could do to help the situation. Now without any further delay, here us my situation.
It has nothing to do with my TB/DL side. I do not at all feel the need to reveal something like that to someone that I know I could have a fight with any second. This is rather just an awkward situation, so I'll start from the beginning. I go to a very small school (we have 34 people in my grade), so everyone knows everybody. Well, about a month a girl that I've liked for quite sometime asked me out on a date, so I accepted. It turns out we have a lot of stuff in common, but one of the things we have in common is the problem. We are both extremely socially awkward, and neither of us really like being the center of attention. This is a problem because when something happens in my school, everyone knows, and it's suddenly every ones business. This has caused a few couples at our school to be broken up because they get so much attention from everyone else, and me and my girlfriend don't want this to happen, so we haven't told anyone. But of course, since we haven't told anyone and we don't want anyone, we can't really do to much at school. From what I'm seeing, this seems to be pulling us apart to, so no matter what I do, there's going to be something that will destroy our relationship.
So this is where I ask you my question.
Do you think that we should just tell everyone and try to deal with the consequences, or should we continue keeping it quiet and only seeing each other a few days a week?
Again, know that I'm not looking for exact advice on what I should do, I just want to know your opinions and so I can think about what to do by myself.
If you read through everything above, thanks for taking your time. And if not, I don't blame you. It's a lot longer then I thought it would be. :P
Anyways, please leave any thoughts you have on the situation and again, thank you.
