Average length high school dating relationship
I know every couple is different, but I'm wondering how it works for other couples, especially with a guy that likes to take things super slow.Some guys I"ve dated never say I Love You, while others say it within two weeks. I'm thinking more of a fairly new relationship, but am also curious as to the average time before people move in together, talk kids, etc.Every person someone dates during their life will teach them what they do and do not want, and obviously that is no different for high school students.If the parties involved are mature and stable enough to realize what they have gained, or what they have learned, then it would unquestionably have been worth it.
The initial answer for a still maturing young man such as myself would've been no, but rushing to such an answer is irrational.Pre-marital couples are harder to study though research shows an estimated 4.4 million college students (20-40% of all students in some studies) are in LDRs.One study of dating relationships estimated 1 in 7 (14%) were long-distance.The only “right” answer is “whenever it feels right, as long as you’re not hurting anybody else.” The thing is: you might be surprised when you’re hurting someone else. The best example I can provide is from my own life. To me, it was the equivalent of being fired from a job. I was in no position to be a boyfriend to anyone but my beloved ex-girlfriend. My need to move on superseded her need to be with an emotionally available guy…. If so – if you’ve mourned, if you’ve healed, if you’ve made peace – then you’re ready whenever you say you’re ready.You don’t sit around for six months waiting to heal. On the other hand, there are a completely different set of emotions surrounding a break-up. Well, it pretty much meant that I got back on JDate, found myself a cool girl a few hours later and was hooking up with her shortly thereafter. Three years later, we’re still friends and grab dinner once a month. This pattern, by the way, continued for a few months (and a few more women), until I was truly and finally “over” my ex. You need to be “over” someone in order to be able to date. When you’re reeling from a break-up, all you can do is RECEIVE. I remember reading once upon a time that people need half the length of the relationship to heal properly. Great blog Evan, I think you are right, you might feel like you want to be in someone elses company, but it´s just not fair on the other person.
