First of all, I want to thank everyone who gave me advice on my previous post. I've cut off all communication with him, but I'm a bit apprehensive about the upcoming school year, seeing as we are going to be in the same class. The class I'm going to be sharing with him is Advanced Drama, so there's a lot of interaction to be expected. Here's to hoping that there won't be too much drama in Drama!
In my former post, I noticed that most people advised me to concentrate on studying and school. That there are plenty of chances in college and such. I agree that school should be my top priority and I work hard to maintain a high GPA, along with several extracurricular activities, so thanks for the concern, but I'm good.
What I don't agree with is that I should only concentrate on my studies and wait until college to date. I find it unreasonable to expect someone to restrain from having a romance in high school. I believe that it gives you experience and prepares you if even a bit for life after high school. Personally, I wouldn't want to be manipulated or preyed on by guys in college because I didn't have any dating experience.
Sure, if you have a decent serving of common sense then you wouldn't be a terribly easy target, but there are some things that you can only learn through experiencing it yourself. There's only so much you can learn by observing your friends' relationships and romance books. That's why although I fully intend on being a straight A student, I'm looking forward to possible romances this school year.
Did you have many relationships in high school or did you wait until college? Did those high school relationships help you in any way in your future relationships?
