Dating stages in high school story dating soldiers and providing emotional help
Getting older isn't so bad when you have him by your side.
My belief in the inevitable failure of 95% of high school relationships to last until marriage exemplifies this.
0% of these relationships survive, because essentially, they aren’t relationships to begin with.
When your friends talk about the douche they used to date who completely screwed them over, you can't help but to feel #blessed about the guy from high school who you're going home to later. You have a "song." Mix CDs were still a thing when you started dating and yes, you made them for each other all the time.
Bonus: You are always down to try new things with each other and it's not scary because there was a time where everything, even "first base," was new. You finally get to do all the things you said you would do when you were older.
Those plans you made when you were 15 about living together and eating ice cream after every meal, or going to Amsterdam just to get stoned, can now totally come true.
It was worth the distance, and you're a much stronger couple for it. Unlike every other person, you don't actually hate your prom pictures.
You don't have to cross an X out on your date's face, and those pictures are actually still hanging up around the house. He and he knows how to create the perfect butter to salt ratio for popcorn before you settle into your Netflix Cuddle Position for the night.
