To be completely honest, I have had just about every realtionship there is. I've had the good ones, the bad ones, the ones where I was just left hanging I could go on and on.
I am the kind of person who loves being in relationships and I can't wait until the day that I cross paths with the guy I am supposed to marry, if I haven't already.
I love giving advice to people when they are having relationship trouble, because in giving them advice, I realize that those are the same things I should be telling myself.
I have been in one serious relationship and through that I have seen both the good, the bad, and everything in between! Even though it is over now, we still remain friends and I realize that throughout the two and a half years I was with this guy, I learned a lot about being in a relationship and how to handle problems. The craziest relationship I have ever been in is when I was dating this guy everything was going so great one day and the next, he decided he would stop seeing me, or even calling me to let me know he made this decision. So, I guess you could say that I've had my experiences and through those I would love to be able to help people going through relationship problems as well.
I think being in a relationship is something really special. You have a bond with someone you have true feelings for, and even though you have your ups and downs, you learn from the mistakes you both make to become stronger together.
I think my point of view is different not only because I'm younger, at being 19, but because I'm going through some of the same things that so many young people are going through right now. It has always been comforting for me to be able to talk to someone about things when they have had the same experience and I think it would be comforting for others to get advice from someone that knows exactly what they are going through.
