Dating in college vs dating in high school

With that said, I'm starting to get annoyed with being the first boyfriend. They had no idea what it took to make a relationship work. - James Jesusfreak91 and I are CTF's resident Civil War Reenactor Freaks. Help poor people on Facebook by looking up free clicks for charity groups. From the few relationships I did have I learned tremendous amounts, but I didn't learn heartbreak, or patience, or self control. Don't force anything for the sake of a date, but don't lock yourself up in your room. Then again, I got married and had a baby during my Senior year to someone I've known for 13 years and dated for 4 years. Now that I am in highschool and have been for a while, nobody has asked me out. I still talk to my ex on occasion and there's no hard feelings between us. I will date a guy with the intentions of marrying him and I wouldn't want to wait years.

It would of made my last college relationship so much better. I'm halfway done with college and still with my high school sweetheart, and we've been planning to marry for a good while. I look back at high school and wish I did as my dad told me to do and dated more. I don't see anything wrong with dating in high school. In middleschool I got asked out a lot, but I wasn't allowed to date then. All my relationships (all two of them) have stemmed from a rather close friendship. If I committed to being with a guy I don't see how my life experience would even matter. I'm being mostly objective here but I always find it offensive to hear that for whatever reason teens aren't supposed to be in love or commit. I don't plan on dating to learn about guys or get experience.

From the few relationships I did have I learned tremendous amounts, but I didn't learn heartbreak, or patience, or self control. You won't have any better luck in college than in high school, maturity level increase of relationships is virtually nil. I am almost done with highschool, and I have never had a boyfriend. But ultimately, what is a romantic relationship, or what should it be? If you can't manage a close friendship, then you can't manage a relationship. I just need to follow God not some silly socially determined "normal" timeline.

Guys and girls think differently and that's something you should get used to before you start to date. And considering I love God and want a Godly marriage I see no reason to wait if I were to find the right guy.

Ideally, high school would be a time where people could learn to have low-pressure friendships with the opposite sex. I just see my self as having a lot of potential and desire to love someone.

It is about level of maturity and ability to manage close friendships. I'm not nor have I ever been in any romantic relationship.

I think it would be silly of me to sacrifice an opportunity to love sent from God in exchange for more life experience. What guy do I need to understand aside from my future husband?

And considering I love God and want a Godly marriage I see no reason to wait if I were to find the right guy.

It is completely sick and twisted that school would affect your ability to live life and have relationships so poorly. I just see my self as having a lot of potential and desire to love someone.

Oh I see were not talking about age were talking about the social setting. I'm not nor have I ever been in any romantic relationship.

I've been the first boyfriend of all 4 girls I've had long term relationships with and I've watched them all make the SAME mistakes. I used to think my dad wasn't thinking straight when he offered to pay for my dates if I would just get out there and date more (I could of, but I wanted to dedicate my time in high school to evangelism). We can't just go ask guys out, we have to wait for the guy. the guy needs to be the initiator) And I certianly DO NOT want to just throw myself at some random guy just to date to learn...? Based off something OTHER than physical attraction. Well that's all good advice, but as teens I'm wondering if the fact that some of you all are in relationships in highschool or relationships that started in highschool are affecting your standpoint? Wee don't grow apart to gain life experience then eventually marry.

With that said, I'm starting to get annoyed with being the first boyfriend. They had no idea what it took to make a relationship work. I mean I wouldn't say I'm an unappealing person So Jag, what would you advise for the girls? TL; DR: I don't think it's a big deal when, so long as you're capable of having a close friendship with the guy first. That's the whole point of commitment we grow together.

It would of made my last college relationship so much better. I was told to not date at all in high school, or Uni... I go to a small private school and all the guys I know know about my strict personal standards and policies, so I guess they dont want to deal with all that. I've been in my current relationship for 2 years, starting my senior year of high school, his junior. It has been tough, and if we weren't close friends in addition to being in love, it would be muuuch harder. It doesn't matter of your "ready" were never fully ready for anything.
