So love. The inevitable blog on love; where to start? Since relationships deal with love it only seems obvious to address it. I categorize love into… let’s say three eras.
Number one: The Beginning of Time
That “high school, head over heels, even though I am way to young to even know what I’m talking about or feeling, kind of love.” I have definitely had my fair share of experiences with this one. In high school everything seems ten times more dramatic and life altering than it actually is. Being a college student and reflecting back on the things you said, did or felt in high school is just plain funny. Why did I think it was ever okay to wear SpongeBob, glow in the dark glasses to class my freshman year? Honestly, I cannot find the answer.
I still see posts from people I went to high school with that take those cheesy kissing pictures and edit them with hearts, “love” and”XOXO” written across it. Don’t be that couple… just don’t. It is beyond rare to end up marrying your high school sweetheart these days. My theory is that the majority of people who start dating at such a young age and stay together for a long period of time is because they are just too afraid to leave the familiar. You put your self in the “safe zone” and are too scared to leave. Now, of course for some this isn’t true. It’s just a theory, folks.
Number Two: College
If you are not in a relationship I would say college relationships consist of weekend one-night stands or random hook ups when you probably were a little too intoxicated, right? We’ve all been there, no judgment I swear.
For those who are living the single life, college love can also be categorized as the following: the love at first… “Oh my god, his abs” or calling dibs on attractive men or women from afar and planning your future together. Or that cute guy at the gym in the cut off tank (which is all of them)… DIBS!
If you’re not one of the above, congratulations you are in a strong and committed relationship. Or you are that couple who miraculously made it through all that high school drama. Be proud.
To be determined.
