Dear Fonseca

I'm 21 and a junior in college. My boyfriend and I just started dating three weeks ago. We are going to separate places on Spring Break. We were tipsy the other night when we started talking about Celebrity Hall Passes. That conversation turned to Spring Break Hall Passes. We talked about whether or not we should allow each other to have a Hall Pass during Spring Break. We were both split on the idea and not sure if it's a good one. On one hand, we like each other and definitely want to date. On the other hand, we just started dating and barely know one another. It may be too soon to say we're exclusive. When I talked to my friends about this they were also split and said a Hall Pass could be good AND bad. It may be good because it may allow us to get any urges out of our system before we become exclusive. It could also be bad because it may infuse trust issues later on. Should my new boyfriend and I grant each other Hall Passes on Spring Break?
