    Basically, I really like this guy on my course at uni, we talk occasionally as he as in the same halls as me. However, I feel as if is 'cooler' and more popular than me. I feel as if we started a relationship, he would be embarrassed to be with me, as he could probably do better than me.
    Do you think its possible to date people above your league?
    any advice would be appreciated

    I think there is no such thing as leagues, if you like someone one then no harm in trying to talk to them and get to know them more.

    Do you really think "cool" still exists at uni? Maybe it's just my uni, but you can tell straight away when someone thinks they're cool and above everyone else and everyone thinks they're knobs... so ironically they're very uncool.

    Firstly there is no point thinking someone is out of your league if they aren't attracted to you.If he was then its understandable to have these fears but think of this he likes me so im not out of his league or else he would not date me.
    Not everyone cares about looks if you have a nice personality and a kind heart you will be beautiful to anyone and they will be the lucky one to have you.

    Leagues are a totally incoherent concept, push the thought away. Popularity of both people also really isn't too relevant, most people like my best mate but tend to dislike his gf, yet they've been going 3 years or so now.

    You've fabricated an anxiety from nothing, get chasing him goddammit

    As people have said, leagues are silly when it comes to dating.

    You lack confidence so you don't think you're good enough for someone. You won't know unless you give it a go.
