I go to a really small high school of about 360 students Freshman-Senior. Many of the teachers are pretty conservative and are more than willing to share their opinion (whether asked to or not.)
One teacher in particular isn't afraid to give her input in what she believes the students should/shouldn't do.
During one of her English classes, she told her students (all high school seniors ages 17-19) that they shouldn't date in high school or college because they need to "experience life." Do you agree with her?
I believe that people SHOULD date in high school and college to learn to understand others and develop relationships.
Is dating at a young age a "hindrance" to the individual and their development?
Is it beneficial to their future?

What she means is especially for girls, dating in high school or college can screw you up in the long run if you chose the wrong guy, and given the options you likely will. Most (and I have a lot of guy friends I could probably recommend 1 or 2 out of my 50+ guy friends to a girl to date) guys dont mature enough to the point of being able to have a relationship till waaay later. They don't know what they want in life, dont know how to treat a girl, no direction and want to get laid as much as possible. So you see that if you do date one of these guys, being new to dating you're going to fall for him, hard, and he'll likely end up fucking you over by either cheating on you, playing with your heart, or you'll just trick your heart into accepting him for what he is even though your brain in telling you to leave and eventually when it all goes bad you'll have a certain fear of dating for the rest of your life/ you won't take guys seriously. So I agree with your teacher in that you should definetly be more wary about who you date in high school and college because the mental capacity of both girls and guys isn't there. Girls risk getting hurt and sticking with that for their entire life (not to mention when you're that young you don't really know what you want). Guys can mature faster if theyre single and actually get a direction in life and a purpose. Anyway Ill get off the pedestal now...2
