So theres this guy... (sorry kinda long)

So my orchestra just went on a trip and I started talking to this guy that I'd never talked to before. It turns out he's super cool and we have a lot in common! I've been texting him since the end of the trip. There's only a couple problems. First off: he's 17, I'm 15. Second: He lives about 40 minutes away from me and i don't know where else I'd see him because i'm leaving my orchestra.  I'm not sure if I should go for it or just stay friends or.. I've really started to develop a crush on him so..
