So in six months from now, I am going to head off for college. The area that I plan on going to isn't terribly far from where I currently live, a few hours away by car, and my parents are moving with me to support me financially (the economy isn't at its best yet in the United States and I want to end up in the least amount of debt after all.)

The immediate issue is I want to be in another relationship, but I know that it is inevitable that I will be moving away to college and that will not change. It's not like I have any interest in anybody in particular right now, but the longing, bittersweet feeling eats at me a lot these days.

This isn't to say, either, that if I were to, by coincidence, find someone I'm interested in that I wouldn't date them. But I'm also 18, so it's not like I can really commit to a serious relationship with anybody in my high school without repercussions unless they, too, are 18.

Would it be foolish to try and seek somebody out, even at the risk of heartbreak, or should I be prudent and wait until college to look for someone then where I know my residency will likely not change for a while?

If I shouldn't try and seek someone out, then what advice would be best to give me some solace to ease these feelings?

What advice would you give me if you believe I should seek someone out?

I think you should enter the hikikimori phase.

Maybe you should log into SAO, then you can be with anyone without it having to be long term

Just take it a day at a time. If it happens then it happens.

You should be focusing on college, not a relationship. School should be your #1 priority right now.

If you had to pay for all of your classes, supplies, room, and board yourself, you'd probably be scared s***less when the bills start coming in!

When you're serious about completing college, you'll be too busy to worry about romance, especially if you need to work a part-time job.

Believe me - I'm speaking from experience.
