So I’m not one to really talk about relationships, because honestly, I barely have the experience to back up any argument.
But when I was in high school, being in a relationship was easy. Even though it was my senior year, I had plenty of time to solve issues or talk problems out with my partner.
Then college hit. I didn’t think that I was THAT busy my first semester, but it seemed that we were fighting more and more, more then we ever had. There were times that I had to choose homework over him, or bring my homework with me when I went to see him, and where’s the joy in that?
I didn’t want to see what was happening, so when he broke up with me because we were barely getting along anymore, I thought he was crazy.
Spring semester? Well I had fun, just like anyone else does. But it was different because I told every guy I was seeing that I didn’t want a relationship. I wasn’t ready to move on again into a serious relationship, not after the way I had been hurt in the last one.
Then came the summer, and everyone went their separate ways. I live in the middle of nowhere, and was working all summer. Didn’t exactly permit me to meet anyone.
So now I’m back at college, and it’s barely the end of the first week of classes, and I already know I can’t have a relationship.
I am going to be so incredibly busy this semester, I don’t even know how I’m going to maintain anything, let alone worrying about someone else’s life too! That doesn’t mean that I won’t find someone that I like, or that I don’t like someone right now, but I can’t do it.
I wouldn’t have the time, or patience, to dedicate to a relationship. I’m sorry, but if you can’t put in the time, then why bother? Not only is the relationship not going to last very long, but you might lose the friendship of that person, and that isn’t worth it.
So I guess what I’m saying is to those of you who can maintain a relationship in college, cheers to you.
