    Usually, people think there are only two choices in a matter. One or the other. Sometimes, there is the forgotten choice: right down the middle.

    Whether in the form of trade-offs, or a list of pros v. cons, or compromises, one can find that it’s not always a struggle (at least in terms of choices available) if one truly evaluates what is/should be “non negotiable”, and what we perhaps didn’t realize could be “things for give and take”.

    In the end, these experiences help open our eyes as to helping us to “reexamine” ourselves, and perhaps to see if we have been a little too inflexible in certain areas, or if we truly do need to stiffen up in others. All in all, our lives, relationships, etc. could be better served by realizing that there could be a middle ground.. … there could be something we missed… that’s what learning and living is all about…

    Speaking of flip-flopping, when I was in my late 20s, I had a chance to move from one coast to almost another coast. At the time I had a Really cool job with a Good salary and benefits. I also had a 2-year-old son whom I was supporting. At the same time, my sister decided to go to State B from State A where I was also living. I couldn’t make up my mind (I’d always said if I was able to save x amount of money, I would leave State A to move to the area not far from State B). Kept telling my boss I was leaving, and then the next day I would tell him I was staying…did this a couple of times…finally he said I Had to make up my mind. So, I took a Big Step out of that really neat job, and headed to State B with a car that already had at least 88,000 miles on it. To make a long story short, I met my future hub there and the rest is history…best decision I ever (Finally!) made… ;)

    Actually, there are “foreign learning” programs ( with scholarships available) and other programs schools have in place (even with tuition) for kids who would like to travel, and learn abroad (including learning a new language!)….

    @ORMouseworks

    That’s a very nice example!

    Isn’t this the part where you should ask your mother?
    I mean, she’s had SOME experience in romance.

    Gunther, for your own sake, don’t throw your future away. Feel free to go to Peru for the summer, but come back and study here at Moony. Are you really going to travel thousands of miles for a high school love you’ve known for a year? Rosa is a great catch, but she’s not worth your future.

    As a resolution to this fli-flopping between 2 plans of action, Gunther needs his own “Plan C”. How about : attend Muni, get a valuable education and a professional degree, and maybe meet a nice girl who’s better suited to your personality and life choices than Rosa ever was? Chances are that Rosa will forget all about Gunther one month into her new life in Peru. It won’t be long now before Gunther receives that “Dear John” letter (although Rosa will be so adjusted to Peru by then that it will be a “Dear Juan” letter!)

    Besides, I doubt that Gunther’s mother would be okay with this charade of nonsense. If Gunther is still 17 years old, his mom has jurisdiction over him.

    Depends on if you ask her or Mr. G. …..

    No, Gunther, they actually do have maps of Peru.

    A perfect solution for Gunther is to move to the San Francisco Bay Area, where the average engineer starting salary nears 100k. He could easily transfer to UC Berkeley with his GPA. There, the money he makes will give him confidence, which will allow him to find a girlfriend who isn’t crazy. (C’mon, Rosa couldn’t wait four more years?)

    Who’s to say that years from now, this particular couple isn’t one of those ones who pair up with longevity in view? Or as if this couple couldn’t be the start of a long-term relationship? And furthermore, who’s to say that they can’t already have talents that can be put to use now in their young lives, with room to add more now and later? Sometimes, some of us either don’t have that ability, or we don’t conceive that such is possible….. but there are people out there who do have that capacity to learn and grow in what they do, and are not “one trick ponies” in terms of vocation/occupation/career, or in terms of their ability to travel and learn…..

    And just because many teens are “fickle” in terms of “romance” doesn’t mean that all are. Gunther is sheltered, but he* is* loyal . Rosa is not sheltered, but she too is loyal .

    Some people treat romances as if they were items to replace on next weeks’ grocery trip. Some treat it as a “playing for keeps” and some are in between. But “one size does not fit all”… it doesn’t always happen, but yet it does happen, nonetheless….
