I am 16 years old, but I have been in my share of horrible relationships. My friends tell me that I'm too trusting, which might explain why I fall for the guys who look like they are sensitive. I say "look like" because I learned very quickly that most high-school guys are creeps. And most college guys only want sex from us younger girls.
I have been in a relationship with a guy who I swear is a future wife beater, a male whore, and someone who thought that I was his little beck-and-call chick. So where are we trusting, sensitive girls to turn?
I HAVE had one very happy relationship, however. It is my current one, and my boyfriend is 18. We have only been together for 2 months, but it has been very strong so far and I hope it continues to be!
My philosophy on relationships is that you have to love to be loved. What I mean by that is that you can't be afraid of letting yourself fall for someone. How else will you become a happy, stable person? If anyone should be bitter about relationships, it should be me and I'm not even close to the end of my "roller coaster of love"! But yet I haven't become bitter, I've become smarter.
I am quite a bit younger than most of them, and I feel like some of your teenage visitors might be able to relate to my advice better than the advice of someone substantially older than they are. I would also be thrilled to become a guest contributor if you don't have room for me on the panel. Anything to give advice and help as many people as possible!
