How do you feel about high school kids dating one another?
I'm an incoming sophomore girl this year, and I've actually always been opposed to teens dating...
Plus, I don't believe in pre-marital sex anyway.
" and "Why can't more people just be happy without having to have someone else?
" The second one especially, because I have never seen a faithful relationship in high school last more than a year.
For example, I'm very muture for my age and I like this Senior guy, who I don't know very well, but we're friends; and if he were to ask me out I'd probably say yes... There's one thing that I feel a lot of people miss, and that is the fact that just because you go out with someone and are bf/gf, doesn't mean you both are expecting that to be the love of your life and that you have to be meant for each other. To say highschoolers shouldn't date is I think to greatly hinder their social development.
I have high standards set for myself, and school is very important to me so I can't see anything too wrong with that... Not everyone you date is going to be THE ONE, and sometimes you can date and have fun together (stopping well before sex) and have a great time. You learn a lot from relationships, and not just info pertaining to romantic encounters.
It seems the majority of teens who get involved in relationships, only do so for some kind of social pass time, rather than anything meaningful.
And lot of the time (probably most of the time) it leads to things such as sex, which, in my opinion, is not something high school kids should be doing.
These first relationships usually don’t go beyond chatting, posing for pictures later posted on social media and requests to attend coed group outings.
Most experts and parents consulted for this article say group “dates” to the mall, movies or even a friend’s house are fine as long as they’re supervised, even if it means just being in the same shopping center.
Even if they are not with the one person that they want to be with all of the time, they know they are being thought of and cared for just as much.
