Dating a high schooler while in college
When it comes to college, you need to make your own decision on what is right for YOU, and with a significant other, it can actually be really hard.
Everyone has heard of high school sweethearts, and although they may seem like a waste of time, there are a lot of people who started dating in high school who have had successful marriages.
When I was in middle school, I always felt like a loser when my friends would have a boyfriend.
It was normally one of those silly middle school relationships, but I wanted that.
I am 19 years old and my current boyfriend is the only boyfriend I've ever had.
It seems strange to think that in a few short weeks I will not only be entering my sophomore year of college but also celebrating my six-month anniversary with my first boyfriend.
To be completely honest though, I was considering it for a while.
Having a significant other at the time of a big transition in your life can be really helpful.There are also other great things that I did not mention about being in a relationship, which makes it even more worth while.I’m very fortunate to be in a relationship with such a great guy, and I can only have a hopeful mind for the future as we enter into the next stage of our lives.Since I had a boyfriend, it was assumed I was always with him, so I no longer was invited to hang out with “the girls.” Yes, I do love hanging out with my boyfriend, but we are together for such an exceeding amount of time that I don't have time for my other friends.It became so bad that if my boyfriend wasn’t at school, I’d be eating lunch alone and would feel awkward even talking to the girls I used to be so close with.
