Sometimes I find myself thinking relationships are a bit overrated. Think about it. Unless your spending the rest of this person, what are you getting out of it?

Believe me, I wasn't really referring to middle school (in my area that's 6-7th grades) or anything below that. Anything in, or below, that range is just too young, and from what I've seen they really don't know what they're doing.

Exactly. There are too many bad things that can come of too mature middle school relationships. Someone could end up with a baby before highschool.
