HS Relationships Carrying into college

<p>somone i was talking to the other day brought up the point that hs dating is diminishing because pretty much everyone is planning to go away to college (in some schools at least). </p>

<p>I was wondering if anyone has any thoughts on this... know any couple that has planned ahead and applied to the same colleges or ones with close proximity to each other? Any thoughts on how a hs relationship can be maintained once in college? I'd assume most couples grow apart in this time period, but i'd like to hear others' thoughts/wisdom.</p>

<p>Yeah, I know a couple that plans to go to the same college. It makes me so mad when I hear about those couples, because they're going to break up sooner or later, and they're going to be stuck in places they don't want to be. Or at least one of them probably will.</p>

<p>And let's not forget the geniuses that wish to marry right out of high school.</p>

<p>... or the ones that marry IN highschool (yes, we actually have those at my school)</p>

<p>lol are you serious? that's hilarious</p>

<p>people are married at your high school?!?!?!
that is crazy!!!!</p>

<p>i dont think you're checking your thread anymore but i am going to college this fall and my girlfriend of at that point two and a half years will be a senior in high school. we're planning on trying to make it work for a little while and seeing how that goes, and maybe at that point if it isnt working just putting our relationship on a hiatus, we both can start dating again, and if it was meant to be then, also depending on where she goes to college, we'll pick it up again. leaves a lot to the imagination, but we'll see how it goes.</p>

<p>I enjoy being single. I can't imagine being in a relationship on the first day of classes at a university. I wouldn't meet anyone new.</p>

<p>people get "pre-engaged" in high school. whatever that means, it makes me SICK</p>

<p>hahaha so true. in fact, one couple at my hs's getting married today... ON HALLOWEEN</p>

<p>lmao @ "pre-engaged"</p>

<p>ok my bf asked me bout a good time to get a promise ring..... i told him to not ask me but to ask his girl FRIENDS... he's supposed to surprise me. then at a store lookin at audio things for our cars, the guy suggested to get me sumtin for christmas.... he just said nah, i have my own ideas and smiled... what the heck?!?! i think it'd be very nice... i am not interested in dating other people at all... its not appealing to me... nore him.... plus im goin to an x community college <em>just got suite apartments</em> thats right across from the college he's plannin on goin to</p>

<p>There's still, let's see, 8 months until school is over. And then there's the summer after that.</p>

<p>College is still in the distance. High school couples still have time.</p>

<p>Statistics does not rule in the favor of couples. Distance and college life are in most cases stronger than the relationship.</p>

<p>whoa, those people that have people in their hs getting married, where do you live? </p>

<p>My boyfriend lives very far from me now, but we're applying to basically the colleges so there's a good chance we'll be near next year. I don't think it's that silly if you've found someone you really like to be with. And anyway, if you do break up, college is big and you don't have to see them. Just don't sacrifice a good school for a relationship, that will most likely ruin it. </p>

<p>As for promise rings, ugh i hate that term it's so corny, but I guess I have one. It's not a pre-engagement thing but it's kinda nice.</p>
