I'll be done with high school at the end of January 2015 and entering the spring semester as a freshman in college. I know school comes first, but I'm worried about dating. I'm still 17, and won't be 18 until the summer. I want to date in college, but I don't want to be perceived as "jailbait." I'm not a baby anymore, and if I've taken the initiative to start college early and pay for it myself (I have a decent paying job and get good hours), then I don't see much of a difference between myself and people a couple years older than me. I'm also not trying to get any guys in trouble with the law, but I don't envision myself ruining someone's future over being in a relationship/having sex. What is your opinion? Should I even tell people my age? Should I wait until I'm 18? FWI, I know that I'll have plenty of time to date and whatnot. My sole intent is not to find a boyfriend in college, but if I meet a great guy who is a few years older, what's so wrong about that? Advice please?

Don't sweat it. There are plenty of freshmen that are still 17 and a few that are even 16. Not generally an issue.0
