“Teens should avoid dating too young”
and to help me along with this topic is going to the the wise words of our very own Abby over at MyIntrovertedLife, so go over to her blog and check her out!! Tell her I sent you!
My thoughts –
Normally, this is where I would give MY perspective on the topic but luckily for me, Abby sums up how I feel PERFECTLY (well – except for the whole being 20 thing…AND having had a boyfriend in the past #single as fuck) so down below is Abbys opinion which I one hundred percent second (It’s like we share a mind or something)
Abby’s Thoughts –
Hey guys. I’m Abby Marie over at MyIntrovertedLife
When I was a teen, (yes, was. I’m 20 now) dating was something everybody wanted to be apart of. I feel like dating was just a popularity thing when I was in my younger teens. There wasn’t actual “love” , kids only wanted to be paired off because it was the thing to be doing. It was something new.
As you get into you get into your later teens, things tend to get more serious. I didn’t have my first actual boyfriend until I was 16. Did I consider him an actual boyfriend? Sure. But did I really feel in love with him? No. I was too young to know what true love felt like. I was young and naive. When teens are young they just like the feeling of somebody thinking they’re special.
I didn’t truly start to know what love felt like until I turned 20. So when I see younger teens posting their relationship drama on social media it makes me laugh. They have no idea what’s soon the way to come.
I don’t think teens should avoid dating because it’s all a learning experience. You learn what type of person you like. You learn how you want to be treated and how you don’t want to be treated. I don’t mean you should go relationship crazy and only focus on that. I wouldn’t take anything too seriously until it’s time to be serious. You only have a few years to be a teen. Don’t make dating and being in a relationship the only thing. Being a teen is when you should be out having fun and making memories with your friends and family. Not hung up on some guy or girl who doesn’t care about you. You have the rest of your life to be in a relationship and get married. Let life take its course. You only have one time to be a kid. Trust me, adulating sucks. People suck. Everything sucks. Enjoy being a teen.
