I'm in love with a senior. He wants to attend college but is worried about leaving me behind. I don't want him to go far away and not see him and lose the most caring person in my life. Everyday I think about him finding someone else in college and silly old me still alone, still unloveable and it scares me. But I don't want to hold him back from his success. What should I do? Am I clingly to want him and love him so much/

you guys should sit down and talk about it. Dont try to talk him into not going becasue he has to go. Try long distance and every chance you get you can visit each other. But remember, if he's older than you and hes over 18 that you are a minor. So be careful what you do.

Sit down and talk to him about it, ask him about the option of attending a local college. You should shoot for a local college since you guys will be near each other and he won't slip up because of college life. I've seen clingy and you come off as concerned, but try not to worry so much and then whether its long distance or not, your relationship will be fun.

I second all their advice, and in that I add this from my own experince. Once he is in college: Communcication, communication, communication! lol thanks to technology, you go skype, video chat and even just audio chat, plus cell phones and texting. Do not talk about important stuff over facebook nor text and you 2 will be fine. But beyond that good luck

Girl, im in the exact same boat, and it sucks. Im lucky enough that my bf is going to be attending a local colledge just like Kenrichi said, but only for 2 years. I'm a 1 year younger then him and i was going to attend the same local community colledge for 2 years, but after his two years he's going far away, but in the same state. So it's doable but i have the same scary thoughts, him finding another girl leaving me behind. My best friend is daiting someone that goes to the colledge that my bf is going to go to after the 2 years, and she makes it work. But you said you're clingy, and so am i. But honelstly, if he does leave you behind, them scr.ew him! he doesn't deserve you, and you can find someone better. Hope this helps! :)
