How do I accept that he's way out of my league?

He's four years older than me and went to the best uni in his country and has a great job. 

I'm a student right now but I don't know what kind of career I want and consider myself pretty dumb. 

I'm nearly 22 and he's 26

We live in different countries and have met twice


I met him twice in two days when I was travelling last year. I reached out to him a couple of months ago through social media, and we have talked through text ever since.

    You are not out of his league or anything like that people can still be attracted to others who don't follow the same career path as you are. The long distance might be a problem unless you plan on living in the same country as him

    You need to add details or else resubmit this, because you didn't explain anything.  You say you've met twice, but was this a romantic type of thing where you both arranged it?  Or just a situation where you saw him twice?  I can't even tell if the 2 of you are starting to do some online dating, or it's just a crush you have from meeting him twice.  I also don't get why you think he's out of your league.  At your age, 4 years is a lot.  He's a fully grown man and you're a student who hasn't even begun her career.  Most 22 year olds don't have a career locked in.
