What is love ?


Relationships can be one of the most beautiful things in the world, but they can also be one of the things that hurts us the most. But just like us human beings, relationships can mature over time and can become whatever you want it to be. It can bloom and blossom into an eternity lasting relationship – therefore refereeing to marriageĀ  Or, it can become something that you’re just temporarily interested in and not take it as serious as other people would. When we’re in our young ages around elementary we learn that we don’t really take a “relationship” serious because as kids we don’t really see it as anything else. But when we grow out of elementary and step off into Jr. high school we get more of an idea what a relationship consists of so that by the time people are in high school we know what we’re maturing and ready tomake that decision of it being a relationship you either pass over or make it into your ride or die partner for life! The following questions I asked these people are…

1. What were the ages of your relationships and how long did each one last ?

2. What would you fix or change about those past relationships ?

3. Describe some attributes of your person perfect romantic companion. PG of course.

I have been in 1 relationship and it is the one I am currently in. We have been together for a year and 9 months turning 10 this month. If I were to fix one thing about my relationship it is being able to spend more time with her. Some attributes my perfect companion would have would be a nice personality, nice smile, and of course loyalty! Oscar Vazquez (12).


I’ve been in three relationships. The first relationship I was in was 9 months. My second relationship was about 2 years, and my last one which I’m currently in we just hit 4 months. If I were to fix one thing in the past it would be to have more self worth! My perfect companion would not be controlling and be sort of a goof because he needs to be funny. Kaylani Craig (12).


I had my first actual relationship in the 8th grade. It lasted for a year and 2 months. And my 2nd relationship was like heading to 6 months. But the one I’m currently in is close to a year. I wish I can change the girls I was with for someone cuter. Some attributes my perfect companion would have is being a blonde for sure! Then I would want her to have blue eyes as well as a full figured body. Tommy Nunez (11).


I have been in 3 relationships. My first one was 2 months and I was 14 years old. My second relationship I was still 14 and it only lasted four days. And my last one is the one im currently in and were going for 2 years and 3 months. If I were to change my past relationships though it would be my second one and wish it never happened. She has to be respectful. She has to want kids. She is also gonna have to work as well as being honest. So basically she has to be my ride or die! Marcus Robledo (11).


My first relationship lasted about 9 months and my current relationship that I’m now in is going to be 2 years and 3 months. Some changes for my first one would be to have taken it more serious. But the one I’m currently in there is no problems. My perfect companion would be reliable, dependable, and loyal. And just be there as my right hand. Mona Diaz (12).
After interviewing Pioneer Valley students the graph here shows that there have been many people who tried to get into the game of love but only a few stay in it. The longer the relationship is, the number of couples there is drops.
And after interviewing even more students a tally was kept on all those students to see if the relationship they are in/were in was meaningful or not, 70% of the students did and 30% did not
