Are they OK?
Well it depends on how you look at it. Some people may see it as a learning experience and others might see it as a waste of time.

What are the pros and cons?

Pros:
- Gain experience
- Become happy, even if the happiness lasted for a little while

Cons:
- May affect the person's grades
- The relationship is not likely to last long
- If you're below the age of being able to drive, your dates mostly include the park and nearby walking places. But if you're able to drive, you spend more money on gas
- People unable to drive sometimes lie to their parents so they could drive them to a place where they meet their boyfriend/girlfriend
- You spend a little more money than usual

More importantly just write why you think it teenage relationships are good or bad.
Personally, I think teenage relationships are bad. I don't get why some teens (under 15 or so) want to get a boyfriend/girlfriend. Is it the media? The new status? The attention they get from people at school? Why not just have a close friendship?

As for me, I don't think I can handle being in a teenage relationship. One reason because I feel VERY guilty when I lie to someone to the point that I have to be a loner for a bit. Lying to my parents is something I can't do. I don't have the courage to tell them I'm in a relationship, either. I prefer friendships over relationships. They might not give you dating experiences but they can make you happy! (:

I agree

I am completely a loner, so I have never been in a relationship.
But by seeing my 18 year old brother, I know it is a distraction from school or family issues.
Whether they are good or bad, I cannot say, but I believe that to some people they are benificial.
Although to many they are serious, I also know some people that date for the sake of status, which I find ridiculous.
Until I meet someone who accepts me as I am, I will not participate in a relationship, and I suggest others do the same.

Pros:

- happiness, enjoy being with eachother
- sex (16+ of course)

Cons:

- gossip gossip gossip gossip about you behind your back like your a damn celebrity couple or something
- stresses of sometimes not trusting them even if you try really hard to trust them and thus causing arguments
- jealousy amongst friends

Been there done that -__-

I'm already a senior in high school and I never had a boyfriend before. Why?
Beside the fact that I'm 1/3 of the time a social outcast, the guys friends I hang out with are kinda the typical

never-dated-before-nor-plan-to-nerds

and those who have spent at least one semester with me would know know that
I have a pretty shitty personality...so it's more suited for us to just be friends.

wtf where's the rebel in you? I don't even want to think about other rules your parents set.
Who are you studying for? Your parents or yourself?
You're supposed to break the rules in your age.


When I was 17 I was already tired of girls and my liver must've looked like shit .... still, my grades were just fine.

Even if teenage relationships never last it will get you experience in life. Thats not something you can learn from a book.

Teen relationships are pretty much like test drives,they are good for your next relationships as then u have a idea what to expect and they help u mature,just don't take it too seriously,have fun.

If both parties are mentally mature enough to see past the hormones then i am ok with them... But kids shouldn't start dating until they are at least 16.

i think teenage relationships are ok...

(even though i don't have a boyfriend myself and may not sound very convincing)

i mean falling in love is one of nature's gifts...so why shouldn't we accept it???...

it is just that studies should not be of the least priority...the future is important too..

Well most of the rebel in my died a few years ago, i did some bad stuff, met the wrong people, took the wrong path and it was hell getting back to the awesomness where i am now. and yah you dont wanna think about the other rules my traditional asian parents set. i am studying for myself because i wanna have a future and i still do break the rules.

To hell with what my parents say about dating. I don't see the problem if I love someone and she loves me back. I don't care that we are still young and stuff but hey were both mature enough to see past hormones.

I think what my parents are telling me about dating is just impossible to do I mean seriously when two people like each other alot, and then begin to care for each other more than a regular friendship its pretty hard to keep calling it a friendship at which point being friends isnt gonna change anything.

You can't put a poison label on water and expect it to become poison.

I have a boyfriend of five months at the moment,

I never really took highschool dating seriously beacause its usually just blahblahblah your attractive and nice lets go out then a week later youre annoying me lets end it and we laugh and talk just like before or we hate eachother. its retarded.

But being in my first serious relationship ever i realize being in one is more than "i like your face and your social status lets go out"

you enjoy being around them and they occupy your thoughts and decisions. you want to know more about them and when you find out how great they are you just like them more. they make you smile and when they smile it makes you happier. being best friends with your boyfriend is also amazing.

if youre mature enough to appreciate all of that then you're mature enough to date in my opinion,

Well I only have had one bf in my life but we never kissed or anything but he kinda showed me how it goes and i'm very thankful for that even though it ended not so well But u know i think that the problems is, is that teens r saying I love you to much and to often... I had a friend and she dated this guy for a week, he did drugs, he almost had a kid and was failing every class and her parents said no to dating him but she didnt listen and still kept dating him and her parents said "Break up with him or u switch schools" but she didnt know what to do cuz she said she "loved him" eventually the summer came and now she dating another guy and doesnt even care about the drugy guy and she says she loves her new bf. I remeber when i had my bf i never said i loved him cuz idk if i really did if it lasted longer like for a couple of years of course i would say it by then, but saying it after a week of dating... yeah teens can be stupid sometimes
