Hi there :) I am 18 years old, and I am in a relationship of almost 2 years. Of course we are very young! I was wondering if you could possibly speak about some obstacles that you faced early on while dating, and how you overcame them? Thankyou :)
Thank you for the question Amanda. Obviously we can't speak for all the moms…this may be a good question for a video later on, but we can tell you from personal experience when your young and dating you don't want it to end. I remember specifically starting a relationship right before college with a guy who had literally just dumped his last girlfriend. I was terribly in love and wanted it to work out, but he really wasn't in a great place so he broke it off with me and it was devastating for me. I didn't really date again for the next year as I did move away for college, but I also learned that moving away was great for me because I became so much more independent and learned how to be by myself before I was with anyone else. Now obviously for others it's different and some of our moms dated when they were younger and eventually found the guy they were meant to be with. We think the most important thing to remember is relationships aren't easy and chances are at some point you will get hurt or angry, but it's all about the experience of life and it's true what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. If your in a good relationship now then enjoy it and live it and don't stress too much on the obstacles. Listen to your boyfriend and in turn make sure he listens to you. If you have issues the worst thing to do is keep them locked in…trust us on this. Let it go and before you blow up wait 24 hours or so sometimes you learn that what's causing the obstacle really isn't that big of a deal. Anyway we know this was kind of long, but we hope it helped you out. Thanks.
