Dating high school sweetheart
Rebecca Gopoian, a writer, teacher, and friend of mine who grew up in Teaneck, NJ, put it this way: “I think what makes it unique is that we completely transformed from children into adults, and the fact that we did that together is kind of amazing.” Yep, it absolutely is.
You may or may not have been each other’s first kiss, but there are definitely many, many firsts you experienced together, and there is something really special about that.
It’s a bit of a hybrid of those two scenarios, really, because, don’t we all know that, while a lot changes, some things always stay the same? Here are some reasons high school sweethearts reconnect.
What I mean is that, no matter how much you’ve learned and grown since high school, there is still a fundamental part of you that has always been the same. via GIPHY Sometimes, a union between high school sweethearts is about as good as it gets.
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.You've sat through plenty of dinners where they've discussed things like your kids and your wedding. When you meet someone later in life, you have to explain that your dad was kind of a jerk or your parents were super strict, so you have some issues.You want to hate it, but their friendship is actually pretty adorable and awesome. When you've been dating since your teen years, he just that stuff. Because in high school, car rides were the best way to get away from your parents and have alone time with each other and you still cherish that. He knows exactly what you want in bed because he's been able to learn about your body.He was there to celebrate every awesome milestone in your life, which made them even more awesome. You have the absolute best inside jokes and pretty much your own language that no one understands.Like, when someone says they "need Starbucks," you two can't help but crack up because it means something hilarious and kind of inappropriate to you two.
