While dating in high school is, to put it simply, “cute,” it’s not true love. Hence, I can’t specify whether someone can find love in high school or not. If a person is lucky enough to develop a deeper relationship with someone, or if they decide to mold their own fate within the halls of their high school, they could form a relationship that blossoms into something special.
However, most teenagers are so unstable and so mentally immature that I’m not quite sure they would know what love is if it came and hit them in the face. There are young adults who have gone through certain experiences and endured certain hardships, which probably allowed them to grow up fast.
After that experience, I realized relationships aren’t just things that happen.
You need to put a lot of work into them if you want them to last. Even now, as I am 18, I have no real interest in dating.
These particular teens may have the mental stability and patience to find someone they’re compatible with.
Also, if something goes wrong, you'll need your core group of friends to hold you up and be there for you. Having middle men and friends that like to interfere ('help') only makes problems worse. Whether you're 15 or 55, keeping open communication with the person you're dating is absolutely essential.
It possible for relationships to last past high school, into college, and maybe even after college…
and if your relationship is going to make it, there are some definite signs.
Whatever the "making it work" arrangement looks like for you two, you've talked about it, made some compromises, and have a clear plan about how your relationship is going to look and function once you're away from your hometown.
But when it came down to relationships, it wasn’t quite what I anticipated, either.
