So, it was the first day of college and as I was sitting alone on a bench, this pretty cute guy approached me and started a conversation. I'm almost 19 and he must be at least five years older than me because he said he's doing his PhD! We hit it off pretty well and I really enjoyed talking to him. He asked for my number and later texted me to ask me out to eat next week. I said sure but at the same time, I'm a little nervous about all this... I hope he's not just interested in me because he sees me as this shy, naïve young girl he can take advantage of. So I'm just wondering, is it weird that he asked me out or am I overanalyzing too much? (I tend to do that a lot.😅)
It may be that he is a shy, introverted guy (not unusual for Ph. D. students) and feels more confident with younger girls. Don't overthink this. Meet up with him and you'll soon have an idea of what he is all about.
