At the typical beer-soaked party (even if you're sober), you can't always tell which guys want a one-night thing and which ones truly like you.
If you've been drinking, there's not always a trusted friend there to stop you from going too far with a guy you just met.
With so many different types of guys around, it's tempting to sample them all! Hookups can be fun, but a lot of times they're mini bombs that explode in one of two ways: into a relationship (rare!
), or into misunderstanding, hurt, or just thin air.

' Think about these questions to determine if you're interested in this guy because of who he is or because you don't feel good enough about who you are. This guy could be more on-the-ball than some adults in your life. If you're questioning the relationship because of others' expectations--maybe your friends and family are making fun of you for liking a baby-faced boy--then you've got to take a look at why you really care about what they're saying.

A guy I like is 2 years younger than me (I'm a senior, he's a sophomore) which is huge in high school!
