Hes 22 and teaching me to pay for his management studies as his father has retired. I dont know how to take things forward. Better still, should I take things to the next level at all? Hes a gem of a person. I want to stay focussed on my academics as well. Ahilya Illustration/ Amit Bandre Dear Ahilya, Goodness gracious! The most important thing right now in your life is to crack the exams. Remember you need a real good percentage to secure admission in a reputed college. Love and everything else can wait. You are only 15 and you are taking about taking the relationship to the next level! How many guys do you know? Looks like this was the only guy you interacted for long so you fall hook, line and sinker for him. Also, what makes you think that he feels the same way in which you feel for him? He is teaching you for the sake of some additional income. He may be already having someone in his life. At this stage why do you want to be heart broken? Stay focussed on your studies for now. Matters of the heart can be attended to later in life.
