You can go back to attending frat parties and having people throw up on you. Do you really want to date someone who hasn't actually had a real job yet and is still going out and drinking like a college student?
When you're 35, you can date a 24-and-a-half-year-old woman.
It will be easy if she wants to jump for that but she doesn't want sex either. Sounds like you are being responsible about this, and I wish you the best.
Make sure that you don't cross any boundaries over the next 8 months and you should be fine.
But my point is that there will not be sex between us. Sex with a minor is illegal, and just make sure that all of your communication is PG-13, too.
