  1. What I mean was, how can I not feel like some immature person trying to cling to their youth on the side socially while focusing on improving myself for the future and getting work done/building skills and be ready for professional development
  2. I have my priorities straight and working on that too, I just mean socially on the side outside of work
  3. I mean, I know my youth will end but I don't think it should end so soon or now. I mean, I'm 22, that's literally in the same age range as 18-22 year old people in uni. To word it better, I'm not going to like exclusively hang out with those, just also have them as optional friend/people to relate. In some courses, I have people who are like in thirties/onward and the idea of being in the same life stage as someone like 10-20 years older makes me feel so old and my youth has ended
  4. I'm a 22 year old MA student doing it straight from undergrad and I feel like doing this is the end of my youth. In my class, I enjoyed the discussion but I have some folks much older than me like starting their PHD and already working for years now or being married/have kids and since they are my peers, I feel like I'm in the same life stage as someone in their late twenties/early thirties onward and I feel so old compared to undergrads(sophomore-seniors or 18-22 year olds) and I can't relate/am not in the same life stage and it makes me feel like my youth is over. Like I want to make friends
  5. What you said is what I am talking about in first place I just started classess this week, everything is online, but have my friends who just graduated and yes, I heard from other grad students and from my own experience with my friend
  6. Oh god, it is not like some inherent weird fetish if you think that or something, more like anxiety/overthinking
  7. I'll reaffirm that I've heard different opinions and second, thanks for being condescending
  8. I wouldn't say I want to relive college exactly 100%, just not feel old/removed from folks who are in it, like be able to hang out with both groups and it not be weird I know my youth will end but not now
  9. Also tbh, I ask mainly in regards to hanging out as I do have a fear/anxiety that this means the end of my youth and I feel so old compared to people in the undergrad age range
  10. I see but like 13 and 17 isn't comparable to two young adults, which IMO more case by case like 18/21
  11. 22 dating 20 isn't weird? I mean 20 dating 16 is wrong cuz its an adult dating a minor, I wouldn't say its comparable to that
  12. Don';t mean to troll, just trying to reconcile different opinions I heard
  13. I'm weighing the options and putting answers against each other also, what is wrong with the term unis
  14. In late 30s, you're too old for undergrad students, stick with grad students
  15. I am not ignoring, I'm just saying I have heard other reactions elsewhere and like more than 9 people have saids its fine/no one will care and in my personal experience, no one had an issue Nah haven't met anyone, just wondering if I should consider it It's only been 4 people as well
  16. I see but as I mentioned, I have seen many folks also say its fine and no one sees the undergrad as taking advantage or the grad as dipping down and how many straight from undergrad nabbed them
  17. The thing is, I have seen a lot of people say its normal though and fine and not inappropiate So is it as bad as a prof dating a undergrad?
  18. Oh didn't mean to seem aggressive, just voicing my thoughts. Uni, I meant undergrad and I am in Canada. My friend was a 4th year, 22 and she was 24. It didn't seem like he was taking advantage of her or she was dipping down, she socialized with everyone fine 2. Is it the 3 cases you mentioned before/know of involved in Canada and the U.S?
  19. So 22/23 dating 21/22? I mean, in my uni, my friend dated a master student, no one cared Wait, so the undergrad is seen as someone who took advantage?
