Not at all! You can have just as much fun with friends or groups. I wouldn't follow the advice not until after college, that's a bit excessive. I set my standards high and found my husband after only one breakup. We dated 4.5 years and have been married for 3.5. If you know what you are looking for in a person, make sure they are the right one before you date. It will save lots of heartache and emotional baggage once you do find the person you marry. I have several friends who have lots of issues with their current boyfriends and husbands because they compare them to past ones in physical situations. It can get really bad. So, no, follow your heart and wait until you find someone who meets your standards.

No, that's probably a good thing. Dating and sex are EXTREMELY OVERRATED.
THERE'S A BILLION things that are much MUCH FUNNER than having sex.
Now, going on a cool date is nice, there is a lot of pressure if you have no experience though.
I think when you're just starting out One should either double date with friends.
Or go out with a person you want to only be a friend.

i started dating my now husband at 18, he was my first boyfriend. it is ok to wait for the right person to come around. a lot of people date in high school just because everyone else is and for me that was not a good enough reason to date someone

DATING in High School is ok. Like going to the football games, dances, movies. That type of thing. But remember, like has been said, MOST young men in High School usually want one thing. And if you are a young lady, YOU get stuck holding the bag (translate that into BABY) if you give in. There is nothing wrong with dating. It does not mean you are or have to have sex. Just use your head, whether you are a young lady OR a young man. Be smart, and don't let anyone or anything get in the way of your education.

It is absolutely not bad at all! My first date was when I was 20. To me, teenagers are too young for that sorta thing. The point and purpose of dating is to find someone to marry. You're not looking to get married, are you? And you are going to change so much as you enter adulthood that chances are anyone you like now you won't later. There are exceptions, of course, but usually that's how it goes. Focus on education and your future for now.

I can not tell you how many girls I knew in high school that ended up dating the same guy for 2 or 3 years. They were going to be together forever, and inevitably, they had sex. Then Junior or Senior year they broke up, and these girls were devastated because they really thought he was going to be the one. They were depressed for at least six months, grades started dropping. It's not worth it. Focus on getting good grades and graduating on time. Besides, from my experience, the best relationship comes when you aren't looking for one. Make good friends. A good soul mate has to start off by being a good friend. If you do decide to date, date someone who will like you for you, not the popular person who everyone says you should date.

While I agree with you that one shouldn't be pressured into having sex, where did that come from? The question says nothing about sex, only dating. Dating is NOT sex.

Woah woah woah. Who's to say that guys are pressuring girls in high school only, to start? I can think of several cases where I know of a girl pressuring a guy for sex. So saying she should save herself for her husband may not exactly be ideal. If a guy is not willing to wait, you shouldn't be with him, true. Your future husband will most likely have sex with another person unless you swoop in and get married right out of high school, and even then , there are chances he's had sex. Why should a female not have sex when it's okay for men to?

No one should be pressured into having sex, male or female.

For many of us older folks (over 30), in our day, it was the boys who were pressuring and the girls who were saying no. I know things have changed these days and many girls feel that they need to have sex with a boy to keep him or else he will go elsewhere. Let him go elsewhere girls because he is not worth it.

Dating in High School in no way means she/he is going to have sex, so saying "save yourself for your husband" ? really? Not everyone who DATES has sex.

Oh I should add in that if you hold out you will date BETTER people! Seriously if your plans are to earn a degree focus on that. Make friends along the way both female and male and you will figure out what you really desire in a marriage partner. Then dating will be better and more meaningful and mature. If you do not desire college that is okay too but again you want to make real life long friendships and discover what you desire. You want to eventually find a mate that has the same financial beliefs as you, similar goals & interests, similar plans for raising children (even if you do not want any back up plans are good), similar values and core family beliefs. I know this is a lot considering we are only talking about dating but dating 'just to date' is setting yourself up for heartache and questions about your worth. Be proud that you didn't settle in the high school dating scene... NOT WORTH IT.

NO! This is a really GOOOD thing! High school teens are truly not ready for mature dating. The average boy wants sex because he has just developed and the girls are on average wanting long term romance. Both of which they are not ready for. If I knew what I do now when I was a teenager I would not be in the situation I am now. Rarely do marriages straight out of high school or even during high school ever last. You are all still discovering who you are, what you want in life and PLEASE follow your dreams before settling down! My parents never showed me love and all I wanted was a meaningful relationship in high school... wasted my entire high school years trying to find 'mr right' and I lost myself along the way. I am still recovering today... many years later. Dating is aiming to find a marriage partner. So unless both parties want the same thing and are ready, dating is wasteful of emotions and energy. PLEASE don't let yourself get hurt and save your sanity!!!

In some situations with certain people you're right but that's not the case for everyone. I had a tough childhood and had to grow up fast. I matured A LOT faster than my peers my age. I'm also a Christian and don't believe in sex before marriage and made that clear to guys in high school straight away which were deal breakers to many but that didn't bother me bc I knew what I wanted & believed. At 16 I started dating a guy from church that I knew my entire life and we dated and were married and are still married. There are mature teenagers (very very few though) and exceptions to your "rules".

I did in college because an acquaintance asked on a sickly guy's behalf. He had just completed major medical treatment. Wrong move! The guy went on to stalk me for about a year. It was horrifying! I was just a teenager trying to be nice and boy did it go wrong.

I think that not knowing who he was was the worst. I NEVER lead him on, we met in a public place, my friends knew that I was there with him and I hugged him at the end of our only date. Yet, when I returned to school early after Christmas break he had found my off campus apartment. My roommates weren't back in town and I was really terrified. My ex offered to stay until my roommates returned.
I told him I would call the police but that made it worse. Not even my football ex-boyfiend threatened him. He actually said that they couldn't keep us apart. The wasn't afraid of authority. But, I had a friend who was a psych student and she actually talked him out of pursuing me. It wasn't all at once but over a few months he just stopped.

I pray that your daughter has a strong support system especially if she's away at school or alone. He attempted to make me feel guilty for not returning his affection and attention. Notify the authorities so they can have a timeline. Perhaps not speaking with him but monitoring the behavior. I pray that she comes out on the other side of this! It is very serious. Not sweet or romantic. Please keep me posted. She will survive this and have a successful loving relationship in the future.

Set a precedent for this back in the fifth grade when I told a boy that he could be my "boyfriend" because I felt bad that no one else liked him. Years later, I think I've finally learned my lesson. It never really helps, and only ends up making things worse.
