That’s what they tell you. They say it will ruin your 20s, corrupt your independence, and suck the fun right out of the best four years of your life. People in relationships just do not have as much fun as those single people. You’re restricted to what you can do, when you can do it, and how you can do it. Staying out until 3am? That’s a thing of the past because you better take into consideration what your boyfriend wants to do! He is going to want you to come home, because there is no way that he would go out and have fun with you. Better yet, just stay home, because people in relationships don’t have friends or fun at all.
That’s what they tell you. But here I am to tell you how wrong they are.
I’ve been in a relationship now for three years, starting my freshman year of college, and now finishing off my senior year. Every experience that I have had in college has been incredible, but has been made one hundred times better because of my boyfriend. I did get lucky, I never came to college with the intentions of finding a guy. Truthfully, I didn’t think I’d ever have a boyfriend again after my traumatizing five year high school relationship, but Klein was there to pick up the pieces just as any man should.
There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t thank the good Lord above for blessing me with my boyfriend. Every fun memory I have from college, my boyfriend was always standing right beside me enjoying it with me. I do what I want on a daily basis, and if he isn’t there doing it with me, he trusts me to do it alone. I always have someone to go to the grocery store with, and someone who is always up for popcorn and a movie. Waking up at 11am to the rain is no big deal, because on those days he greets me with pancakes and endless snuggles.
I can’t imagine what it feels like to think that having a boyfriend in college is the worst thing that could ever happen to you, because three years later and I can honestly say that it is one of the best. So go shout it from the roof tops, tell everyone how much you love your college relationship, and tell everyone what a blessing it has been for you, because people deserve to know the truth.
