Is it normal to date a gifted student?
I'm in high school. Almost one more year left and I will be graduating. Throughout my time here, I've met so many different and talented people. Among those people, one of them is a gifted student, which happens to be my first crush back in grade 9. We are very close friends now, and I've still been crushing on him. I love him for who he is. He's funny, respectful, and is always there to help a hand in need. I am planning to confess to him this coming Valentine's Day. Problem is: I've always heard/seen the expectation that gifted students have relationships with gifted students, normal students have relationships with normal students, etc. Not only that, but back in grade 9, before me and my crush were very close friends, he had told me that he does not like me more than a friend. Is it normal to date a gifted student if I am a normal student? Anything that can help my situation, please comment. I really like him.
