High school relationships


As students strive to find companionship in this cray hell hole some refer to as high school, the controversy of high school relationships always surfaces. In reality, relationships are fine until the point of changing your decisions to fit the other person’s needs.

While growing past the awkward adolescent years into the prime of teenage hysteria, getting tied down to someone else is never ideal. Sure, having someone to occasionally mack on is fun, but who cares about da mackin when the rest of your decisions have to change to alter the needs of your fellow macker? The second you change yourself to make another person happy is the second your high school relationship isn’t worth it anymore.

Lets get real folks. High school relationships typically come and go faster than Usain Bolt in the 100 meter dash. Most of them don’t matter. Sorry high school sweethearts, it does happen for some students, we get it. But being stuck on the concept of finding your true love in high school isn’t very ideal. When you put it in perspective, there are less than 2000 students at Ames High, and 7 billion other people on the planet. Why try to find that special someone when the odds are incredibly depressing?

Did it really matter if you had someone for Valentine’s Day? No, it’s one day of the year, just like any other day. Just sit down at home and scoop up some ice cream and watch your favorite love story, or a killer action movie. It’s just as emotionally satisfying. There is no rush in finding someone. Besides, you probably are going to have to break up with them at some point anyway. And if you don’t.. well.. one of you is going to die first so there’s that.

Relationships can be a beautiful thing, but save time for them later so you can really appreciate them. High school relationships aren’t really all that they are cracked up to be, because there is so much more to your teenage years besides dating someone.
