When it comes to dating in today's world, there are a few "unofficial" rules that come with the territory. Don't complain about your ex the entire time, and don't try to make it social-media official before it actually is official are good ones to follow. But the one thing that makes modern dating so different from how it was back in the day is that there really aren't that many set-in-stone rules. For instance, you don't have to wait three days when it comes contacting someone you had a nice date with, or even wait for a person you're interested in to ask you on a date-you can ask them!

So here's the story. Im currently a high school senior and I met this junior girl a few months ago. During those few months, we got to know each other and go out. As a result, we grew closer and eventually became comfortable with each other. Its been almost 5months now and I finally asked her to be my girlfriend, and she happily accepted. I've told her I loved her and she the same told back to me. My friends found out and one friend made a remark that I soon began to ponder over.
