Dating stages in high school story
And yes, you deemed "Butterfly" by Crazytown "your song," ~*~s Ea Led w It H a Ki Ss An D a Th An K y Ou, Mis S~*~. You appreciate how special your relationship is after being away from each other in college.
You passed the apparent "test" that is college because you didn't listen to everyone when they said it was stupid to date through college.
I obviously exaggerated this to prove my point, but in a lot of relationships – not just those found in high school – person A will claim to care about person B, but in fact person A only cares about person B because they’re trying to satisfy themselves. Those who care about the other person: This is where I make myself doubt that even 5% of high school relationships truly succeed, because getting to this level of trust with another person is impossible until one possesses significant maturity and independence.
This group is reserved for the love between parent and child, sibling and sibling, and other rare circumstances – imagine how much time you would have to spend with a person until you could achieve that with them. To love someone to the point where you would sacrifice your own well-being, sacrifice it, not just “I would catch a grenade for ya” sacrifice, but promising eternal faithfulness and unconditional understanding – that is the zenith of a relationship. All of those detract from the depth of a relationship, and because those things are so prevalent in high school, they decrease the amount of successful relationships.

That giggly schoolgirl crush feeling is so real for you.
Thinking about that hurt my head a little, so I’ll move on to other more simple reasons why these relationships don’t last: Sex. Not to mention college – I might write a post later on about why long distance relationships fail, if I have time. Maybe I should start a series called “Sunday Morning Cynicism.” I want to end this delightful post by saying that I do not intend to offend anyone – I have several friends in relationships and wish them the best.
Basically, you can promise your significant other that you’ll love them even when you’re miles, countries, or worlds apart – but it’s easier said than done. A growing relationship can only be nurtured by genuineness.” – Leo F. This is just my personal opinion, and others are free to argue.
Teenagers also tend to think that their boyfriends and girlfriends are better than they actually are, or over analyze the emotions involved in the relationship, instead of actually, well, dating. I hope they argue, actually, because if not the world would be depressing.
This quote explains what I’m trying to say: “Never idealize others. I consider myself a romantic person, and yet here I go writing this…
You share the good and bad memories together, and it creates an insane bond between you two. Since you both didn't know what you were doing the first time, there was no need to be shy and you were comfortable being confused as hell together.
