Dating in the Homeschool Group (My Take On It - Becca)
Dating is a very complicated thing, period, and when it involves boys you are very close with (friends, friends of friends, or friends’ brothers) it gets really weird.
Okay, not weird more like…incestuous.
I’m not saying that I have never had a crush on a boy in the homeschool group.
But as you get older, you realize you love these guys…not because you want to date them, but because you love them for who they are…and you want to hang out with them more.
I look at my school friends’ statuses on Facebook, and I’ll go, “Wow…is this really what they think about at my age?”
See, I’d rather text a “guy friend’ or IM, but I could not imagine hanging out with them as a friend, dating, breaking up, and then it being awkward having to see them at EVERY teen and/or homeschool event.
I know it would be ten times worse in school... I don’t know, it might just be me...but I don’t look at my guy friends as possible dates.
I would rather hang out with guys and be friends than having the possibility of ruining a wonderful friendship.
