DS (17) has been best friends with a girl since they were 4 (she is 6 months younger than him). They became friends when her family started going to our church back in 2000. Over the past few years they have been on again off again bf/gf. DS just casually mentioned this morning that he hugged her as we left church & her 15yo sister said something to the effect of "oh so your girlfriend gets a hug & I don't?" So I said "Oh she's your gf again?" & he says "yeah haha". Now I have NOTHING against this girl. I think she is really nice, is a great person, great friend to DS, & has even offered advice to my 13yo DD. I just don't know what to think. They are both juniors in higgh school. They talk constantly even when they aren't dating. Shoot... when they were younger we ALL thought they would end up married one day.
I guess I just don't know if I should be concerned that they are always back & forth. I have never known them to have a bad break up- just mutual "hey let's move on". Has anyone else had to deal with this with their teen?
