I had a girlfriend for four years
I had a girlfriend for four years (since 16) who i put above all and everyone else, including parents/ brother/ dying grandmother. I invested all I had in her love and affection. She must have cheated on me at least four times throughout. I was too blind to see any of it or listen to my gut or others who knew better. Everything came crashing down when I finally caught her first hand. Funny though that I still tried to deny what was so obvious that anyone in the right mind would have placed their life savings on in a bet. It's been almost a year now and I still think about her every day and dream about her at least two nights out of the week, which kinda sucks in a pleasant way.
All I have to say to any other teenager reading this is to hold off on the seriousness of a steady relationship until at least college, I promise you it will only bring pain in the long run or in the worst case scenario a baby. And trust me, listen to your parents no matter how unskilled they may seem in the area of young relationships, they have all been through it; that's how you got here.
