    I’d say started dating in HS up to now (so not including if they had dated in HS but then broke up and didn’t get back together for 10 yrs). Darling Husband and I are college sweethearts and I’d say the same thing for that definition too.

    I definitely would not class a couple as high school sweethearts just because they knew each other in school.

    I would expect you to have started dating in high school, but I’m not penalizing you if your relationship didn’t start when you were 14

    I consider my Fiance and I high school sweethearts since we started dating in high school and have never stopped. I wouldn’t consider someone who knew in high school and dated later to be a hs sweetheart.

    You had to be sweethearts in high school to be high school sweethearts, even if you started dating in the last few months. 

    If you just happened to go to the same high school or even knew each other in high school but didn’t date–doesn’t count.

    You had to have dated in highschool. I guess if you dated in high school then broke up for a short time period (less than a year?) following high school and got back  together I would still classify that as high school sweethearts. 

    If you started dating after high school you are not high school sweethearts

    I’d say it’s if you started dating while in high school, like others. My fiance and I met and started dating right before our last year of high school, but we didn’t meet in school and went to different high schools, so I don’t actually consider us high school sweethearts. Others might, though.

    My husband and I are High-school sweethearts. We’ve been together 10 years. We started dating when we were 17 at the beginning of our final year of high school.

    We actually went to kindergarten together too though ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

    I think started dating in hs and continues through til now. If someone breaks up and gets together later I don’t consider it. H and I are by this definition, dating since 16/17 in gr 11/12.
