This is a pretty simple post…
I think the term high school sweetheart is super cute (Miss Turtle’s posts made me think of it) and have always wondered…
Can you refer to yourselves as “sweethearts” if you met at other points in school? Like my husband and I dated all throughout college so, can we be called “college sweethearts”?
What about other types of sweethearts? Are there “grad school sweethearts,” law school sweethearts” “medical school sweethearts”?
What do you think? Are you and your SO any kind of “sweethearts”?

What about “Cold Cruel World, Real Adult Life Sweetheart”?

Legit? Meh. Call yourself what you want. I think the high school sweethearts phrase kind of references that people don’t really date in high school. You hang out with people, then are “going out.” You are kids in love, holding hands at football games, stealing kisses in the halls, that sort of thing.

I think I heard college sweethearts before I ever heard high school sweethearts, but maybe that is just me.

So I guess that makes us law school sweethearts? Just doesn’t have the same ring to it 🙂

I think the sweetheart thing is reserved for high school couples….otherwise aren’t we all “sweethearts” think about it, college, grad school where else do the majority of people meet?

I guess that would make us Business school sweethearts but it just does not have the same ring as high school sweethearts!

I guess we’re kind of halfway between middle school and high school sweethearts then? Haha, we got together the summer before our freshman year of high school – but spent our entire 8th grade year flirting like the shy people we are.
Wow, that sounds so weird! We didn’t feel young at the time, but some days I can’t believe how lucky we got.
I’ve heard the term college sweetheart as well. Usually reserved for people who starting dating in and dated all throughout college.

…How awkward is the term “professional school sweetheart”? Haha. I have never heard that before, nor have I heard “grad school sweetheart”. The other two, yes.
