He's so sweet, but I've heard rumors that upperclassmen are just trying to get in your pants. What's the deal with dating upperclassmen?<br /> </em>&ndash; <em>Joyce*</em></p> <p>A 2-year age difference isn't that big of a gap later in life (a lot of married couples are that far apart or more), but&nbsp;it can be a huge difference in high school.

But if he seems to be, you can explain to him that you aren't ready to move so quickly&nbsp;in your relationship with him. If he truly is the sweet guy you hope he is, he will understand. You never know &mdash; those extra 2 years might mean he's mature enough to understand and respect your honesty.</p> <p><em>*Names have been changed to protect user privacy.</em></p>
