For heaven’s sake, I acted as if the sky was folding down around me and the ground was crumbling beneath my feet. Here I am, one year later, asking myself, “What in the hell was I thinking?” Given my own personal experience of the classic college breakup, I can relate to the oh-so-common high school sweetheart relationships gone sour in college.Meeting a Girl Establishing a Relationship Making It Work Community Q&A Whether you dated a lot in high school or not at all, college is a whole new ballgame when it comes to relationships.There are plenty of opportunities to meet new people, but it can seem impossible to make a relationship work with a busy student schedule.Some couples decide to break it off, but some decide it’s worth it to proceed with their relationship, whether they will be attending different schools and attempting to continue regardless of long distance, or whether they will be taking classes on the same campus.
First off, you’ve completely limited yourself from forming a romantic relationship with someone new, who didn’t know you in high school, and who could see you for the person you’ve become, and not necessarily the person you were.
If you’re both attending the same school, you get to have that special person at your disposal to help ease the new shift in your life.
If you’re attending different schools, it’s also nice to know that you have that person to look forward to every time you come home, which can also help with keeping focus while you’re on campus.
Having a significant other who got to know you, and was there for you all throughout high school is comforting and all, but you will most likely change a lot within these next four years.
Many of us have ended up feeling awful as a result of a college relationship, but never feel afraid to confide, get guidance, and treat yo'self!
