Did you “go steady” in high school?

Think back to high school for a moment (we know, it’s hard for us to remember that far back too!). Let us know when you’ve got a visual. Got it? Okay, good. Did you “go steady” with anyone? In other words, did you have a boyfriend/girlfriend who you dated exclusively for a long period of time?

If you happen to still be with your high school sweetheart, please leave a comment and tell us your story. We’d love to hear it!

We met in Dads thorn less blackberry field. Needed extra help picking. she and her sisters and brothers came to help. That was sophomore year. 4 years later got married. Now married 63 enjoyable years. If I had to do it over again I would jump in again.

Went to an all boys school and don’t lean that way…

Not really. Went to a small Baptist private school (and as the only Methodist there, I quickly learned the meaning of the words ‘delusional’ and ‘hypocrisy’) and only had interest in one girl the entire four years I was there (she was one of the few non-Preachers daughters). She, however, had eyes for someone else. I went to a Public School my Senior year, and dated about half-a dozen girls for about four months, until I met this one gal. Thirty eight years after we first me, she is still sitting by my side.

Yep, sure did. Once it was with three different girls, until they got together. I didn’t marry until late 20’s. So I didn’t go steady with my future bride at all.

I said yes and I married the one I went with the longest. We celebrated our 50th anniversary last year. I met my wife in ninth grade but we didn’t date until our senior year, got engaged 3 months later and married the following year. When ya know ya just know.

Darn, you made me do the math – twice! Is 62 years considered “steady” ? I was never good at math. I have never been able to know what day, month, or year it is. I surely don’t want to pull out a tape measure. We just merrily go along day by day.

Yes, for 2 years of high school and first year of college, to a wonderful boy. I got stupid and broke up with him. I still regret that after all these years, even though we have both been happily married to others for 45+ years.

We started going “steady” when we were only Freshman in high school. Got married when we were 19 ( no shotguns necessary 😂😂) and have been married 52 years now. But wait! the story gets better. We were born in a small town hospital only 3 days apart so we were in the nursery together when born. We did not meet until we were in our Freshman year at school.

It amuses me to recall high school. I only married at age 32, which I find extremely consistent with having a single date during high school. Consequently, I never went steady with anyone, including my wife. 😉

I was what my HS principal called “socially retarded” (to my mom, in front of me). I didn’t even really date until much later.

Met her during my senior year while playing drums in a rock and roll band. Still married 52 years later.

No. Worked a lot going through high school and played some sports and high school was 30 miles away and grew up in a small town of 800.

Yes, but only towards the end of my senior year. When I graduated Tech school, I moved about 200 miles away. I came home every weekend to be with her. After a year of driving back and forth, we decided to get married. That was 53 years ago.

March 1963 met the prettiest girl in the school. Started dating in May 1963, declared ‘going steady’ shortly after. 3 daughters, 11 grandchildren, 9 great grandchildren later, we are still ‘going steady’ and she is still the prettiest girl I’ve ever met.
