Relationships- Kicking and Screaming

Well the first few weeks of school have passed and everything is starting to settle down. You can finally go into class and sit in the same desk every day because everyone has stopped moving around to try to sit near their friends. you’ve learned who the smart people in you classes are (so that you know who to cheat off of) and who the not so smart people are (so you know who not to cheat off of). You’ve figured out who the class clown is, the teacher’s pet, and learned not to sit behind that one girl in the third row because she spends all class period combing her hair and excessively applying make up to her face (quite annoying to watch :p). All in all, its time to get down to business. Teachers are assigning homework, parents are finally enforcing curfews, and inevitably, people start looking for relationships.

Now let me make this abundantly clear, when I say relationship, I do not only mean having a boyfriend who carries your book bag and walks you to class, or a girlfriend who writes you cute notes and hides them in your text books so that you’ll find them when you’re studying. Unfortunately, there are a few other types of relationships. Some of the main ones are:

     1) The ‘You like me so I’ll like you too’ relationship. This relationship, most common among freshman, is not actually a relationship. Basically, little Timmy decides he likes Sally, so he tells his best friend Sam. Sam then goes to Sally’s best friend Rachel and tells her, who then tells Sally. However Timmy and Sally never actually speak to each other. They may smile at each other in the hallways or pass each other a note or two in class but that’s about it. This kind of relationship generally lasts 1 to 2 weeks, ending when either Timmy or Sally decides that they like someone else. Fun huh?

     2) The ‘Lets go together’ relationship. In this relationship (Also most common among freshmen and some sophomores), two people like each other and actually tell each other. They talk to each other during class and walk to class together. They tell everyone that their ‘Dating’, and even hold hands while their walking in the hallways, however its still not quite an actual relationship. They don’t hang out outside of school, they never talk on the phone or text each other and are too embarrassed to call each other pet names. This relationship lasts around 2 to 4 weeks. Cute, but not significant.

     3) The ‘Friends with benefits’ relationship. I’m sure most of us know what this means, but for those who are utterly and hopelessly clueless, I’ll review the main details. Basically, two people hook up whenever they feel like it. No relationship, no emotions, just the physical. These people are free to talk to and date other people.  However this is probably the most dangerous of all relationships because in the end, someone always lets their emotions get the better of them and wants an actual relationship. And the other person doesn’t. These relationships can go on for a while but pretty much always end badly.

     4) The ‘Actually Dating’ relationship. In this relationship, two people actually date. One person asks the other on a date, and eventually to be their boyfriend or girlfriend. They rearrange their schedules so that they have all of their classes together and eat lunch at the same table. They hang out after school and talk on the phone every night. They get their phones taken up for texting each other during class and are pretty much always in contact. This relationship can last from 1 month to… well marriage ❤

The beginning of the school year begins the search for relationships. Which means the beginning of a lot of drama that never ends :p (but that’s secretly what we all want right??) The news of who likes who, who’s dating who, and who wants to date who is always spreading around the school. Everyone has that list of people who they would date, wouldn’t date, and who wouldn’t date them, and it’s always being updated. Of course most of these high school relationships will fail, but it’s always interesting to see who is still together at the end of the year 😉
