If ur going on this forum, chances are u are aiming for a top university, which most likely means out of town. so why bother dating someone when u know you'll have to break up sooner or later and likely never to see each other again?

    why think so much about it. do it because it's fun. and enjoyable. you don't need tyo spend your whole life planning and weighing consquences, or calculating future yield. i gurantee that's a good way to be unhappy.

    not planning for consequences is a good path down failure.

    I think IVY really wants a date. He always posts these things like why date? why take a girl to prom? etc etc..

    Because it's harmless fun. You can make it take over your life, you can make it risky and distracting. Or, you can ask that one girl to prom and have a nice night. And then go back to being a good student. It's not a battle of extremes here.

    well im guessing it can give you motivation to succceed in other areas. and to gain experience and gain confidence in social interaction with the opposite sex so that you can have better relationships in college.

    high school is a time of experimenting. dating HS doesn't mean its for life.

    I'm in a long distance relationship and have been for over a year in a half...actually, 2 years on March 31.

    It's fun and it's not as distracting as some people make it...you can choose how much time to devote. My boyfriend and I both agreed a long time ago that school came first. It works because he's amazing at science/math (engineer major, what do you expect?) and I'm good at history/english. It's nice since he's a year older and advanced in the areas I stink at so he helps me with work.

    Plus, yeah, the sex.

    to get experience and learn a LOT before starting real adult relationships?
  • hotpiece101hotpiece101 Posts: 4,042Registered User Senior Member
    hehehe, relationships are just sorta natural byproducts of school. i mean, our hormones are raging and we are around the opposite sex all day (unless you go to a same-sex school).

    and yeah, i have to agree with everyone, the sex pretty much makes high school relationships worthwhile.
