They go to the same college, live together, sit together, and rush home to each other nightly.I feel that they are both missing out on being young people even though their relationship is really happy. Personally, I have no need or want to “experience” multiple people and I definitely don’t see that as the point of college. For the first time in your life, you have the freedom to truly do what you want, without having to answer to anyone else.
Here’s the question: can you be in a relationship and still do all of that? We started thinking about this after seeing this post in the message boards. Should you break up with your high school sweetheart just so you can experience other things (and people)? Check out what these girls think, and then give us your opinion in the comments.

If it becomes awkward to see an ex-girlfriend in class, you may find yourself distracted or avoiding class altogether, and this can take a serious toll on your academic life.
Even when dating girls who aren’t in your class, it’s important to always be honest with yourself and to those you date.
Basically being single, meeting people, dating around. I’m more on the pro-spotlight of college experience actually.
Even if they’re happy with someone, they need to experience more people for it to be a “complete college experience”. I have two friends who dated for two years in secondary school.
College is supposed to be the best four years of your life.
It’s supposed to be the time when teenage boys and girls “find themselves”, when they start to mature, make a whole new set of friends, go out and have fun, have new experiences, and generally just have a great time.
Let’s be honest: dating in college is a lot more complicated than dating in high school.
