What the point of dating in high school
I decided that since we could come up with way more cons than pros, I shouldn’t date in high school. I expected to start dating as soon as I graduated high school… In fact, it was four years after my friend and I created the above list before a guy asked me out.Now that Caleb and I are dating, I do kinda wish I had some sort of experience in dating to fall back on.(Still do.) I knew that having a boyfriend would make me feel less lonely, but I knew that loneliness was a lie.I had friends and family around me who I could hang out with.
The pair got together at age 16, despite the misgivings of their parents (Barbara is Chinese-American, and Gordon is African-American), who threatened to disown them.
When I was in high school I was in two choirs and insanely involved in my youth group.
I also took several AP classes, so schoolwork took up a bunch of my time too. Realistically, I knew I could make a relationship work despite my busyness, but it would be hard.
This vulnerability is important for is okay to share.
And if you don’t have a strong sense of self when you’re in high school, it can be easy to share everything with him to gain validation.
