Graduating Guy Needs Adivice

  1. I just had my last lecture today! It's almost surreal. I've roamed those halls for over 2 years. Can't imagine life without going to school? That is wierd. Now I gotta find a job......anybody need a nurse? hehe. I feel like i'm on cloud nine. not nervous about finals just nervous about loosing my friends. I'm in a small community college you see and there are just 20 of us. Don't get me wrong, over 130 started my program and the few that are left have become family. How could I be so sad and happy at the same time? Did I mention I'm a guy?
    Above all of this, we are all going out this week after finals and I wonder about this girl I have been friends with. I have grown so close to her but we are so different. What do I do? I'm single and 29 and have the world in my hand. I plan to move away to Chicago where the pay is better....should I ask here to come with me? How do you know if you love someone? I've been around the block in all but I am wordless with this one. I need some girls advice. - RN Benny in 7 days.

    Have you had a relationship that goes beyond being friend? Even if you have not, you need to tell her how you feel before it is too late. It sounds to me like you love her if you are thinking about asking her to move with you! I say go for it!! People that you can really love do not come around many times in one's life. When someone comes around you love, you should reach out and grab it. If you don't at least ask, you will always wonder about what might of been.
    Good luck with everything.

    Well, I got my answer. She had planned to move to a place that I was considering. She said that she had a few "offers" from people to move in with them. I asked her if we could share an apartment and she politely turned me down. she said "but I'm sure we will see each other around". Oh well. I thinks its just an infatuation anyways. Plenty of fish in the sea. Anybody renting out a room near Iowa City?

    Awwwwwwwwwwww shuuucks. Our Benny's in love!!!!!!!!!!!

    You must really be into this girl to be thinking about asking her to move with you. But, what do you mean by "we're so different"? That's not necessarily a bad thing at all. Sometimes it makes the relationship more interesting.

    I think you should ask her, and if she says 'no', its no big. You're going to meet tons of young single women whereever you move to.

    CONGRATS on finishing your program !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    we are different in that she like country and I like Jazz. Thats pretty different! She likes the country and I like the City. She like north and I like south. I asked her to move with me and she said I have plans

    I still like her just like all of the girls in my class (a bit more though). BTW, all of you girls that responded to me too :> I think maybe I need to be realistic and consider my future. I'll find a girl, right? After all, i'm good looking and survived nursing school without getting married? hehe. God Bless everyone, Benny
