Young love can be a dangerous thing. Teens aren’t exactly the smartest group in the world. Their idea of “forever” is different and scary.
Telling them they will be with each other for the next 70 years once they start dating has the same impact as saying they’ll be together all semester.
Their perception of events and understanding of consequences is still forming. Just because they can drive and smoke, they think they know it all.
And when their ideas get challenged by reality, they often make grave mistakes. Jolee Callan didn’t want to be with her boyfriend for the same “forever” that he did.
She tried breaking up with him, which was a smart move, but what he did in response was not.
Not understanding the concept of death – or perhaps not understanding the potential consequences of his actions – he took her somewhere romantic and broke up with her in a more permanent, lethal way.
10 /10 Country Girl
Jolee Callan was an ordinary girl from Alabama. She liked hiking and photography and had plans to go to college after she graduated high school.
Her father described her as a “sweet, sweet girl.” She was friendly – perhaps to her detriment – when it came to her relationships.
When she was preparing to set off into the world, she decided to cut herself free from her boyfriend of one year, a man named Loren Brunner.
9 /10 Possessive
Loren Brunner was three years older than Jolee. He was sweet enough at first, sharing many Instagram pictures and posts with Jolee over the year when they dated.
Still, he became increasingly possessive of her, denying her plans to hang out with anyone else. It got to the point where he threatened to kill himself if she ever left him.
