Yes, I AM, young.
But I’m really tired of people giving me passive aggresive remarks about me and my SO’s relationship. If you don’t agree with it, think we are young and stupid, thats cool. Just keep it to yourself.
Okay, maybe a little background information?
I met my SO when I was 16 and he was 21. We met unintentionally online through gaming. He was a college student at the time and I was a high school student. At first it was just friends chatting. But over many months and lots messages back and forth on facebook we decided to meet each other as we did not live very far from each other.
Well we did meet and there was an almost instant “spark”. But before our relationship could progress past friends he insited he has to meet my parents and make sure it was okay with them. Something I was not happy with…I don’t have the best relationship with my parents(they are abusive, lazy, and just down right nasty to put it it nicely).
So he took my parents out to dinner (he was wearing a tie and everything, it was adorable!) But I was sure they would never let me date a 21 year old. Yet my SO is quite a charmer and he talked them into it (something I still can’t believe after all this time.!)
There were ground rules ofcourse, but we didn’t mind, we were together! I was so happy, he is handsome, smart, witty, and just a little nerdy. I had my dream guy! ;P
Fast forward two years later and Im about to start college. Me and him have an apartment together and are making the big step of living together for the first time. We are excited, we are happy.
But throughout our relationship and especially now people always give me looks and find the need to make remarks when they find out about our relationship. Especially now that I am moving in with him. Like last week when I was at the college doing some paper work the lady at the desk asked about where I was living since she noted I was not living on campus. I told her I had an apartment with my boyfriend. She raised her eyebrow and said, “Do your parents know? You are awful young to be living with a boy.”
I just don’t understand what being young has to do with anything. I like to think I’m mature enough to make decisions for myself now. Recently me and SO have even talked engagement.
Honestly up until now I have avoided mentioning how young I am on here because I did’t want to be judged, but after seeing people older than me (22, 23 24) being told they are to young to be doing what they are doing on here its bothered me. Before it was common for people to get married under 20. So why is it that in this day and age people stick up their noses at young couples looking to get engaged?
I know their are young couples who are not mature enough, but not everyone is the same! I don’t know, I just wanted to get it off my chest, end of rant I guess.
