19 and 'in love' but am i still with him for the right reasons?

Hi guys, Ok here it goes. Im 19 and have been with the same guy since i was 15. I do love him but i always have doubts in my mind. He treats me like a queen, he really is the loveliest guy. I get along with his family so well and both of our families get along well. Which is why im scared of the thought of breaking up with him because i will lose his family also. All my friends love him so its hard to talk about with them.

Foodies In Love: How We Went From Pizza To An Engagement Ring

I was 14 years old, and to be honest, back then I was more concerned with my grades at school and the newest Justin Timberlake CD than boys. He was in the same class as me and a typical awkward teen boy: shy, had braces, but cute in that dorky sort of way. Growing up in the same neighborhood, Alex and I used to walk the same route home from school every day. After he sheepishly asked me out one day, I reluctantly said okay.

Depressed? Your High School Boyfriend Could Be To Blame

For many young people, high school love is full of firsts. You can probably think of a few yourself--first relationship, first kiss, first heartbreak or even the first time. However, we're betting you would have never guessed this first would ever be added to the list. Researchers at the University of Maine performed a psychological study which brought to light a new first for kids in love, and it has nothing to do with magical moments. They found that early relationships can often reveal the first signs of depression.


The Only Exception

Dear Blog (and readers), September 6th,2010 Yesterday, i found a guy that i deeply care about and he feels the same about me. I've known him all but 4 years of my life. He's my best friend. And he called me Perfect. Something i've never been called before. So if my poetry gets lighter and heavier for no apparent reason, that is my reason. The reason it gets lighter 'cause he makes me feel special. The heavier part is because he lives in Indiana which is 2 hours away. I would drive to see him but im only 12 (going on 13 the 30th). So that would be impossible.At least im going up for the end of the month to see my family for my birthday. Hopefully he's allowed to come. Sincerly,Lilith (Lily)


Finding The One?

Note: As always, follow my journey on my personal blog, So about what I said... On a sweltering day in early August 1996, I lay curled up in my bed, my leg in a big metal frame with pins shooting every which way and trying to recover from the surgery I’d had a month earlier. Now, I’m not sure if I was still woozy and out of it from the anesthesia or just plain bored, but that afternoon, I proclaimed, in all seriousness mind you, to my trusty diary that (and I’m quoting word-for-hopeless-word here) “I can see myself spending the rest of my life with him.” The him I was referring to was obviously Crush Boy (see previous columns), but C’MON!! I HAD JUST TURNED 15. What in the heck was I thinking?. Back then, I wish I’d had a handy-dandy checklist like some of the detailed ones you find online these days to see if he is indeed The One.
