Dating since high school
Lege: We definitely value our time together more now."I was walking by, and I happened to notice David in passing at lunch one day. David reached out on AIM and said he looked me up in the yearbook.Some of this stress can be avoided when the relationship begins before college.However, a high school relationship can come with stress of its own.Lege: We actually first started dating in seventh grade, crazy. Mc Kay: Annie sat in front of me in eighth grade math. Lege: We are both not at UGA, he is at GCSU in Milledgeville.I’d always thought she was cute, but I didn’t have the courage to tell her until we met again at camp that summer. It is tough at times seeing other couples walking around campus, but it makes us value our time together more on the weekends when we do get to see each other.Not only must the relationship withstand a drastic life change, but other students often look down on relationships formed before coming to university.
We have to learn to respect and trust one another even if we are three hours apart.
Struggles include meeting someone in the first place, getting out of the friend zone and going through the ever-confusing “talking” stage.
The stress associated with starting a new relationship is often what keeps people single.
The summer after high school, by August, we had broken up.
We found each other on Facebook in 2010 but were both involved with other people.
