Growing up with images, movies, music, and public figures putting tons of focus on being in love or the need for significant other makes it pretty hard to escape the Mr. or Mrs. Right rat race. I spent most of my life in some sort of relationship. By high school, I like many young girls my age, often invested much of my free time in the opposite sex–texting, calling, boo-lovin and going out on dates on the very few occasions my parents would allow. For those of us who didn’t marry our high schools sweethearts, but did manage to rack up a number of broken hearts or just one heart with a number of cracks and bruises—we learned quite early a love-life can be a hard-knock life.  By the end of high school I was convince love was simply a game of Jump Ship.

High School Graduation Love Notes:

  1. Never let anyone get to close
  2. All men only want your goodies
  3. End it before he breaks your heart
  4. Always have a backup man
  5. If it’s not working for “any” reason dump him quick and move on to the next.
  6. I’m right you’re always wrong, because it’s my way or the highway
  7. A messy breakup is a successful break up

…So by the time most youngsters graduate from high school their relationship futures are set for self-destruction before they ever begin.

    1. I completely agree ♥love, books allow us to formulate or create our own version of love. I cannot stand the love falsehoods portrayed by western media. Likewise, my daughter will not be victimized by the radiation tube. I’m working on a research paper that actually talks about the first novel I read as child dealing with love and how it subconsciously affected my love life in a positive way. I will be doing a summary post when it is done. Thank you for this insight. ☺
