You may think you want to play the field forever, but I’m guessing that at some point you’ll tire of living such a bifurcated life.
You found someone you really like, and even though apparently you have never made declarations about the future or fidelity, you feel you would be cheating if you started exploring how compatible you are with this new woman who’s caught your eye.
Don’t be embarrassed about the college you’re headed to.
The only embarrassing thing would be not taking advantage of the opportunities you find there.
Dear Prudence, I applied to 12 art and design universities, a lengthy and emotionally fraught process which involves creating a portfolio of work highlighting one’s skills and creativity. I’m trying to remain positive with the understanding that I applied to some super competitive programs but it’s hard not to feel like I just suck.
The college I’ll likely end up attending is in a place with a much less glamorous reputation than New York City, and after all the long months of working on my portfolio I’m embarrassed to tell my family and friends where I’m going.
