    I've been seeing a wonderful guy for the past 6 months, and things are going great. I've just been wondering if it even has a chance to last since we are both so young.

    I never hear positive stories of two young people meeting and staying together and it kind of worries me. I am definitely a relationship person and I hope it lasts, but with never hearing about two people who stay together, it just worries me.

    Should I just enjoy the time I have with him, knowing it will come to an end, or should I just try and stay blissfully hopefully that we will be the exception.

    You live each day fully and not worry about what the future holds. Tomorrow you could be both hit by a bus. We're all exceptions. How's that? icon_wink.gif

    Almost everyone "says" they are relationship people.
    Very few actually "show" it for the long term.
    And it's extremely rare to find two people who can show it together.

    Is this why you want me to move to Florida?
    'cause you think I'm rare?

    Baby, I'm medium well. lmao.

    Of course it can. I would think after six months you would know if you are in love with this person or not. Remember relationships (any kind) are a 50/50 commitment.

    Well what do you guys think? Just wishing to stay together is not enough. Talk about it. Communicate. Where are you in this? How do you feel about... etc, etc. Did you guys discuss this yet?
    Where do you think this relationship is going?
    Am I part of your plans for the future?
    Where do you want to be in 5 years?

    Yeah, I know I sound like a straight woman, but having a serious discussion about the relationship is important.

    I met my man at 24 and we just celebrated his 37th birthday together. It's possible.

    Young love has everything going against it...but that love doesn't stay 'young' for long...which can certainly lead toward an incredible foundation with someone...

    Yes, relationships can last, but like anything in life, the work is enormous and constant...if it were easy, everyone would be in a relationship...

    have fun...do the work...have the full experience with someone [laughter, tears, anger, sweat, stagnation, etc.]...and if it doesn't work out...learn...and try again...

    There's a moral to this story...but, if the two of you are loyal to each other, with give and take, there should be no problem. Don't do open relationships, though.

    You have a chance to last as long as the both of you put the work into it. Age doesn't mean anything as you can see by some of the threads and post on reajock age doesn't equal maturity. Maturity is one of the biggest factors that can make or break your relationship. Goodluck icon_smile.gif

    Stop worrying about whether it will last and enjoy each day as it comes and goes. Perhaps with time you will settle into this relationship and continue through your lives together. Just because you're young doesn't mean you don't know what you like, want, enjoy and feel comfortable with. Time passes quickly when your happy and content. In 10 or 20 years you may still be gazing into his eyes and thinking how lucky you are to have each other.
