Dating during teenage years
Yazmin is a senior at Huntley High School, and Alex is a former British School student who now resides in Greece.
Both are student reporters for The Mash, a weekly teen publication distributed to Chicagoland high schools.
When this dimension of intimacy is missing, relationships often come to an end.
Young people value the support, trust, and closeness they experience in romantic relationships.
In fact, teens have more conflicts with their parents and peers than with romantic partners, though conflict within romantic relationships increases with age.
High school is the time to get good grades, excel at academics and perhaps jumpstart your career. Being in love is so much more besides the looks; it goes deeper than holding someone’s hand and it’s definitely more than just going out with someone to be able to say, “I have a boyfriend or girlfriend.” I think only a person with more years of experience can clearly comprehend the whole concept of “love.” So personally, I don’t think true love can be found in high school. --Yazmin Dominguez Only if you’re mature enough Honestly, and with no offense to anyone, this is one of the shallowest questions that I’ve had to answer.
But we have to take into account the fact that being in high school also brings unnecessary distractions such as the washed-out drama, cliques and crushes. Love is not something that you find, rather it’s something that finds you.
