Develop Your Own Personality

If you are not able to develop your own personality, then you are not going to be as attractive. If you have no personality of your own, no hobby and noconfidence, then you are not going to be very attractive to the opposite sex. If you get involved with your own stuff and have your own personality, then you are definitely going to draw attention to yourself.


Pick Someone That You Have Something in Common with

If you are a member in the key club, yet you are interested in a slacker, you may have conflicted interests and he/she may bring you down. If you love social interventions and you date a loner, then you may have problems. Therefore, you should find someone that you can relate to both mentally and socially.


Don’t Think You Can Change a Person

If the girl you like is known asa cheater or the guy you like is not so angelic, then don’t go thinking you can break that mold. Nothing is worse when you should have seen it coming because old habits die hard.


Do Not Let Your Guard down

I know, in high school, you can have some trusting relationships, but you should never let your guard down. When you are at a party, don’t leave your drink unattended. You do not want to leave yourself open to be date raped.


Always Include Your Parents

I know, as a teenager, you do not want to include your parents. You may even think of your parents as monsters, but trust me, they are only trying to help you and do what is right for you. You will understand this when you get older. Let the parents meet the person you are dating.


Don’t Ignore Your Friends

When you get in a relationship in school, you may feel like that boy or girl is the only one you care about. However, you should not alienate your friends, you should keep them close to you just like you always did.


Give the Other Person Space

In a relationship, no one wants to be smothered. You should givethe boyfriendor girlfriend some space. If he does not want to go out with you on Friday night and wants to go out with friends instead, then don’t blame it on the fact that he does not like you. Maybe he just wants to spend some time with his friends.


Don’t Let the Relationship Get the Best of You

By this, I mean that you should be able to balance your school work with your relationship. Your parents do not send you to school to learn about boys or to learn about girls. They sent you to school to get an education, so make sure you are getting one. Study hard and don't let the relationship distract you! There’s nothing better than being in a good relationship and getting good grades.


Avoid the Gossip

You may not be able to avoid your friends and there’s no reason that you should, but you should avoid the middle person that love to interfere (they call it help) and make problems worse. High school is full of drama and rumors and that is why some relationships do not last. They getsucked into arguments that are caused by something a friend might have seen.


Talking about Sex…

You need to read my recent blog posting onteenage sex. I’m not against it, but I do think that you need to think it through and if you do it in every relationship, you will be labeled as easy. You do not need to go through high school labeled as “easy,” because then you will get all of those boys that are looking for easy girls.

With all of that in mind, I wish that every single one of you will have a successful relationship in high school. I know, this is not going to come true for some of you, but believe it or not, high school sweethearts can get married. Are you in high school now? Do you remember your first boyfriend?

Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

I am in high school now, and I was new to the state when I started freshman year (I am going on to senior year now). I had made a few guy friends, and had been very shy. After MUCH force from mutual friends- we were both equally as shy- he asked me out. We dated for almost a year, but it was NEVER like a relationship. We said 'I Love You' and hung out, but it was always akward and we didn't know what to do really. There was no real communication and it was constantly platonic. In fact, it took 11 months for our first kiss to happen. 8 months after breaking up with him, and starting fresh as a new junior, I started talking to one of my old classmates who constantly flirted with me, and I always talked to during movies in class, and it turned out to be my best relationship. We dated for about 7 months and we're still best friends, trying again. We communicate better than anyone I know, he never judges me, we give eachother plenty of space, and it's such a natural and healthy relationship. This summer we're going to stay single, even though we love eachother to pieces, and see how everything works out in the end of the summer.
