Young Love

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?

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 »)

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 think wew can still be kids and have an appropriate age crush or boyfriend. As long as it's not too serious, everythings normal. We can be crazy, loud, childish and sporty and still have someone we can like and rely on.

Well, I think age doesn't matter too much. But it's kinda ridiculous to have "true love" at age 11. Sometimes it does happen, but that's rare. It depends, does she REALLY love him?

I'm 14 and personally, I don't want my parents driving me to the movies. I mean, really, that's just aukward. Whenever I see middle schoolers dating it looks so fake and childish. Like they're just trying to look older than they really are. So many people want to be older, and have more responsibility, more freedom. But I just want to be a kid and have fun and be immature while I can still get away with it.

I stronly believe that dating at a young age should not be encourage. Come on girls there are a million more important things in this world than boys! I think that childhood is too important to be wasted on something that will mostly be temporarily . It's better to buil friendships and leave it there. you are not cool when you lose your virginity... you are nothing but a fool because you lose your essense and pride, and boys are not worth it at youth. Our concept of Love should improve as we... (more »)
