It’s sweet and innocent, but it’s doomed to end, right? Your high school sweetheart could still come back into your life years later.
My story also seems to be a "success” by these standards.My boyfriend and I made it through first year and are still together now, three years later.As my one friend eloquently told me, "Cherish your boyfriend; he will never catfish you." And I am thankful.Thankful that I have someone I can trust, thankful that I know someone cares about me, and thankful that I have my best friend by my side.Being in a similar situation as me, with her boyfriend attending university at Mc Gill instead of Western, Yam notes that things were difficult at the beginning.“It was such a big change because we grew together in high school and I was just so used to him being there all the time, like physically, but when we got into first year it was hard to see each other because we’re both busy and we’re trying to adapt to a new life,” said Yam.
“It was hard, but I guess it just made me realize how much we have.”Marlee Kosir, a current student in teacher’s college, is one of the few who dated her high school sweetheart through her entire undergrad here at Western.It could be a sign you never got over him and don’t really want to. All those happy memories flood back in along with emotions you thought you’d left in the past. Those deal breakers when you were 18 don’t seem like a problem now. Besides, he’s grown too and left his childish issues behind, just like you have. Other guys have told you they loved you, but you know that he’s still the one who loved you more than anyone. It’s not jaded by bad dates, horrible breakups, liars and cheaters. Sometimes, that’s the love that lasts, no matter what happens between high school and now.Maybe the next time he’s single, see if he wants to try again. He was with you throughout high school and the two of you shared everything. He’s the only one who said it and made it feel right.
