Reasons Not To Date In High School

It's inevitable that teenagers will date one another throughout high school, but high school dating probably isn't the greatest idea and I'll tell you why.

  • Your focus is off of school and more on your significant other when it should be the other way around. If you must date while in high school make sure your priorities are straight. Make sure that your grades and schooling come before anything else as this will have more impact on your life than you really think.
  • Teenage boys are usually pretty gross... and horny. Yes, all boys are thinking about at that age are only wrapped up in one thing and one thing only. Sex. Now, what happens when you're not safe and you have sex? Babies. And again, if you have a baby and a significant other how will you ever get your focus back on school? Chances are you won't.
  • You're learning who you are at this point; you're learning what your sexuality is, what your goals in life are and basically what kind of person you are in general. Learn who you really are before you drag a person into a relationship... Which leads me to my next point.
  • If you do decide that dating in high school is something that you're interested in, don't think this will last forever. Yes, puppy love can overcome you and fill your brain with a feeling of "love", but don't assume it's a set in stone relationship. From the time you're 16 to the time you're 20 you're a totally new person, growing in so many different ways. Chances are you're going to grow in separate directions. Don't let it discourage you from future relationships.

Most of all, make sure you're happy whether you're in a relationship or not. You are the most important person in your life.
