I've been reading this and just want to say one thing that's recently been on my mind...

I'm 19, and engaged to the love of my life..also my first (and only) love. I love him unconditionally, and would do anything for him in a heartbeat. And I know he feels the same for me. I found my soulmate. And if you're wondering what my point's this:

If you find your true love, the one that truly is perfect for you, your soulmate and bestfriend..don't let him (or her) get away from you!

And, in answer to your original post--

You're 17. You have so much time ahead of you.  I KNOW that you will find a man to love who loves you just as much and treats you as his queen...Just let Love find you. It will


I'm an idealist..I don't know where I'm going, but I'm on my way =)

*psst* I was 22 when I first went out on a date. In high school, I was just glad to hang with my friends. When my friends all went off and found girls, and I was curiously alone, sure, it stung a bit, but I had plenty of other things to occupy my time.

I'm actually glad it wasn't until I was in university that love first hit ... for me, anyway, it's quite obvious I was not ready for that thing we call "love" until that age.

The thing is, it comes when you're *not* actively searching and seeking. It hits you on the side of a head like a snowball, leaving behind some powder and ice, and an incredible feeling of "I've been chosen!" (now what to lob back?)

Of course, the inevitable break-up *is* tough. It's the reason I joined Passions, actually. To try and work through the grief/anger/self-loathing/misanthropy that triggered itself deep inside my gut and flooded my brain like poison for a while.

Now, it's simply melancholy. Sure, I'd like to be friends with this girl again. But to actually go out? God no, we're sooo wrong for each other. It was good that we built our relationship on friendship, but it's too bad that that friendship disintegrated, too, under the pile of half-thoughts and unrequisition that our relationship became.

Of course, the relationship being long-distance didn't help us out, either.

Anyway ... three years later, I'm with someone who ... well, let me put it this way. When I was going through the first relationship, I thought that the reason of love and marriage was to find someone to complete you.

No. What it's about is being able to both remain independent, while, at the same time, being able to form into a bond stronger than anything that happens to you, being able to come together in strength and protection and earth-shaking love. And yet, even while being consumed in that passion, also maintaining an individual sense.

Wow................ that went on *way* too long.

I didn't have my first date till I was 15. And That was 3 years ago ... it seems like it's been forever. I kind of wish I hadn't got into the dating sence because the break ups are hell. Exspecially if you love them. But don't try so hard for love, let it come to you. Just don't care, go out with your friends have fun meet new people. You'll eventually have your "first date" ... your "first" everything. It doesn't matter how old you are when it happens. Not everything happens at the sametime for everyone. Everyone is different. I know people that was at least out of high school before they even got there first kiss. So your not the only one. Just go out and have your fun and don't worry about it. You'll realize you were better off when you didn't have the guys to worry about and all the heartbreak and stuff.

Peace and have a good time

I was 17 too when I started dating and I didnt start till college. But some people when their at school can be pretty childish because they haven't had the chance to grow up yet. And dont worry about what the guys say at school there the one with the problem not you, their just bulling you because their insucre about themselves. Love is hard but it can be worth it and i'm sure you'll find it soon.

If your afraid of the dark, then why did you come?

There are many, many, years and some romances before you.

You just must recognize that certain ONE when he comes into your life.

Y'know, I've had tough times with finding relationships (not finding love, though; go figure). I'd fall for all the wrong guys, who just couldn't have a relationship with anyone they felt for... (Which made me wonder if it was good that they liked me enough to protect me from their weaknesses or bad that I didn't get to go out with them.) Then my first real try in the dating world was with someone who hadn't told me that he was on psychiatrist prescribed drugs for anxiety attacks. That turned out real fun. :P

I've actually found that I scare guys. I'm almost rabidly independent, and I think that teen guys need to be needed to make themselves feel important.

But for all my past failures in the world of romance, I now have the best thing ever going on with Mike. We had known each other--been each other's best friends--for years. Four years, to be precise.

Don't get me wrong, I'm still totally frustrated with what went on in my past. Grr. There's many a guy who I would like to see brutalized (by my own hands). But I'm finding peace, just reeeeaalllyy slowly.

impress me, or be discarded
