Dating a high schooler
If you don't see the relationship going somewhere, then why even start it?I didn't want to cause myself any more heartache than I needed to, and I definitely didn't want to feel like I was just passing, or even worse, wasting my time.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.But when it came to boys and dating, she was spot on.
But in the end, not dating in high school was one of the best decisions I've ever made.Though there were many times that I had no idea what I was supposed to do as someone's girlfriend, there hasn't been one time that I've regretted my inexperience with dating.When I was in high school, which feels much longer than just a year ago, it seemed like everyone I knew was dating someone.To say it bluntly, there was no one in my high school that I wanted to marry, so that meant there was no one I wanted to date. Finally, the biggest reason I didn't date in high school was because I knew it was only temporary. And contrary to what some people may believe, they are not the best four years of your life.I knew that I had bigger and better things to come and that I had some big decisions to make and I didn't want any of them to be affected by the person I was dating.
