I’ve been going out with my boyfriend for a few weeks now, and everything is going really well. We really like each other, and have gone on regular dates. But now, where I go to school, it is getting really cold - snow weather, almost. Normally this is fine, and we could just move our dates to inside, but we are at a boarding school, and there are a lot of restrictions around COVID-19. We can only go out to a few restaurants, for example. Also, we are in separate boarding houses and aren’t allowed to go inside each other’s common rooms because of COVID-19.
I think this rule doesn’t make sense because we’re already at school with each other for eight hours a day. Also, how do they expect any teens to hang out (and the school does encourage that) if it is literally freezing outside? Should I ask the teachers to make an exception or change the rule? I guess I could also ask my parents to call/email... What should I do? I really want to be able to hang out with my boyfriend and not turn into an icicle.
