What will dating a college basket player be like?

I am currently a freshman at a 4 year university. My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost 10 months. He's still in high school. For the past 4 months, he has dedicated most of his time playing on the high school basketball team. He's pretty good and many recruiters have found large interests in him. He's only at a high school level now and I barely talk to him. I know I love him but I don't want him to put his dreams on hold for me. But I don't want to fall second to his love for basketball either.It'll probably just get worse & I'll be the one hurt in the end.

  • this is a site for mothers
    do you have a child?
    if so, how is he with your child?
    if not, you might want to ask this question on a site for young college kids


    ( i say kid, because i am in my forties, all people in twenties are "kids" to me)

  • yes, KA91
    anyone in their 20's, i call a kid
    not a bad term
    just referring to me being so much older

    my mom used to do this, i thought odd
    now i am same age, i remember her doing it, and it feels normal
    she now calls people in their forties- "kids"

    it is all relative

  • I call college students "kids" as well and I am in my early 30's. They just seem so freaking young to me. It is all relative I guess. OP, this isn't facebook.
