Young Love

September 14, 2009
Walking around the school halls people talking about who's hot and who's not. Chatting about who they like and who they dislike, who they want to date and who they don't. I'm in middle school and already people my age are talking about dating! I think we are too young to date in my opinion. Recently my friend got a boyfriend and she's only 11!!! I think we need to live in the moment of our age. Have fun playing soccer and keep crushes, crushes until you're older. I understand kids liking the oppisite sex, but dating? I keep telling my friends that we're young and she be running around and playing sports. They just ignore me and shake it off. What do you think?

You are right. it is to early to start serious dating and you should find the right person but young love is still O.K. and I beleive that as long as you are close friends with someone that can be your early age dating.

Middle school children are unable to feel real love. So her argument that an 11 year old is too young is valid. You say some people need love to be happy, but it sounds to me that you believe love inquires being in a relationship. I will tell you most people are unable to feel love until they are 14 or older sometimes 13. And sometimes people won't feel love until they are adults. Love is not about being in a relationship. I know many people who are dating that really like each other but are not... (more »)

there is a fine line between being to young to date and not. I dont think dating should be aloud at a certain age. I think it should be determined by maturity level. Some people are to immature to be in a real relationship. Middle school is when everyone is starting to change and everyone starts to like the opposite sex. You are still finding who you are. I think middle schoolers schould just hand around with the opposite sex and have a good time, not get into anything to seriouse so young, Bein... (more »)

I think this a little bit true I think that middle school has WAY too many dating and cursing it's like come guys u really think tht is appropriate for our age I'm in 7th grade and just started middle school and every one cusses land I'm tired of it so if you hear someone say something inappropriate stand up for it say "hey we're in school I don't care what you say at home but at school BE NICE!!!!!!!!" If you don't agree with me, fine but I want to take a stand

I think that young people can date but that depends on the defintion of dating. I am 16 and I see 11 years old kids dating and some is extreme. If you are 11 you can hold hands, hang out, and share a quick kiss or two. At my school, they act like sluts just wanting to grow up. I say wait awhile and live cause when I was 11 I still think I was hooked on Disney Channel. So to everyone out there, take your time growing up because there is no rush and enjoy it because when do you grow up it is not a... (more »)

I completely agree with you. Based on the date you are 17 now, but I am 16. I have been in a serious relationship for almost 2 years. And I did date in middle school but none of it was serious. Middle schoolers and even some high schoolers regret/ will regret their choices due to inappropriate action chosen to be taken.

Im 15, and i have had a boyfriend or two,i think as long as both of you know the boundaries you have, it is okay to date. And as long as it is a healthy relationship,not just a physical one. Am i right???

ok i understand that some of you might think all young dating is unacceptable, but come on! live a little! as long as they're not getting too serious too young, let them have a cute relationship with some one of their choice. For example, I'm 13, 14 in may, and i am completely in love with my boyfriend. He was my first kiss, it's been a year since that kiss and we're still together. We talk all the time, have intellectual and silly conversations, text, and he  says hes in lo... (more »)

I hope you and that guy are still dating and going strong! I fell in love with my current boyfriend whenever I was 14, and now I am 16 so I do agree with you that it is possible, but you have to understand most middle schoolers are not mature enough to find real love.
