ok... in 2 weeks I will be moving to a new town and new school (jul 26). I'm super excited because I can't wait to meet people and because my boyfriend will only be 10 miles away instead of 250 (NO he is NOT the reason i'm moving, i had already decided to move there before he was even offered the job there). i have been seeing him exclusively for almost a year (a year sept 3) but we've only been "official" for roughly 3 months. my dillema is = each year he and his friends (guys and girls) have an annual party out on a farm, just a chance to get back together from all over the country. and he really wants me to be there, because 2 of the guys are going to kosovo in october (for 2 years) and one lives in colorado so it might be awhile before i can meet them. these are the people he considers his closest friends... however, they are ALL older, many married, closest to my age is his best friends younger sister who will be 21 in a couple weeks (i am still 18). the age range from there is up to 27 or 28 i believe. the same weekend, my school is sponsoring a "welcome weekend" with a dance, a chance to go to the state fair, Renisance Festival, Valley Fair amusement park, and a picnic on the outskirts of town. these would be people my age, from my college. so, i'm having a hard time deciding. I know how important his friends are, and he REALLY wants me to spend that weekend with him...it is the same weekend as our "one year" anniversary...but at the same time i will be in a whole new town and not know anyone my age and meeting them out of a school atmosphere would be a better indication on their personalities... the party is out of town, so going to a little of both is out of the question... any advice?
