Why dating in high school is bad
For example, a study of over eight hundred high school students was conducted to determine how their dating age impacted their sexual behavior.
Here’s what the study found: Among the teens who began dating in seventh grade, only 29 percent of boys and 10 percent of girls were still virgins.
First relationships are like tornados — they're bound to do some damage.
UGA's research, drawn from following a group of 624 students over a seven-year period from sixth to 12th grade, found that kids who began dating in middle school had worse study skills, were four times more likely to drop out of school and reported twice as much alcohol, tobacco and weed use than their single counterparts.
Right now draw near to God so that you understand your worth in his eyes.
Many people leap into relationships where their self-worth depends upon how the other treats them.
Try to outdo him in generosity, and watch what happens.
There is wisdom in taking your time before beginning a committed relationship.
