I'm 14 years old, a freshman in high school. I have a boyfriend, but am I too young for one? I guess it's a matter of opinion, but I wanted to hear from more people than just my overprotective friends and family.
He's 14 also, and its actually long distance. We live about 45 min away from each other. We've been together for about 3 months now, the most we've done is hugging and kissing, holding hands, etc. I would never even begin to think of doing anything more than that at my age. But is even that too much at 14?
No just take it slow, limit your emotional investment for now. I know it sounds cold but you should just enjoy each other for each other now. 14 is way to early for sexual stuff, you will regret it. Use this to learn about yourself and life in general. You seem smart enough, just don't let passion blind you
Hmmm. I had my first kiss at 16 and I am in my first relationship now (almost 19). I feel like I understand a lot more now as an adult. But if you feel like you're mature and you know how to go about things then go ahead! My friend started dating her boyfriend in 7th grade and they're still together as freshmans in college! So really it depends on you, your boyfriend and the relationship. Long distance can be a drag, especially since you're so young you can't drive... but good luck! Be careful, safe and smart :D There's nothing wrong with a bit of experience. And whatever happens, you'll learn from it so don't take it so hard. Hope this helps!
Not to young to have a boyfriend, but too young to indulge in any intimate activities, let your body grow! Focus on height and health. Wait till 16 to start anything! You can have a boy as a special friend, but calling him boyfriend means you have crossed the dating stage, now you are in a successful beginning of a relationship, and you may get married soon.
I would say no, I mean I had my first girlfriend at 6 but that doesn't mean I was committed or did anything sexual. You can call them your boyfriend but you probably just do friend stuff anyway, like the sexual stuff you should be very slow about getting into it for you at that age. At least thats my opinion, you can do whatever you want though.
Not to sound like a parent because I'm sure you get enough input from them, but you need to experiment. there's a 99% chance you're not going to end up with this kid for life. Be protective of your body because 14 is a prime time for teenage boys to take advantage of girls. You are going to get hurt eventually and its better to do it young! Learn from every opportunity that you get and become a stronger person in the end!
no as long you keep it simple like going out and keeping it above the neck and holding hands but no further. you should get your education and respect your parents first. you sure dont want to make that mistake of getting pregnant or catching something you can't wash off like a STD. also you don't need to get that reputation of being a slut either. use that head the good lord gave you and you will make the right choices
Start dating when you are prepared to talk to your doc about pregnancy! Oh yeah and you should definitely introduce your date to your father right away! He has been waiting to give a young man like that the death grip handshake and evil eye!
Yes. Despite the billion dollar industry of romance you are exposed to from a young age with Disney, Hallmark movies, books, commercials and songs on the radio, relationships can grip you tight from your core then completely impair you. The simple truth is that many people can't love. They don't know how. They may have never been properly taught or the love they were shown is full of wrong turns. They don't know how to take care of someone's heart so when you eagerly give it to them with hope and loyalty, you'll inevitably get hurt. Depending on the extent of this heartache, it may impact you and effect the way you function romantically into your 20's. That's why various people, myself included, believe 14 is way too young to have a boyfriend. Plus your brain is physically still developing and you are raging with hormones. You would have more of an advantage if you waited, observed, and walked into dating highly aware, wise, and with firm self-love and self-care. That way you'll be less likely to accept nonsense. It would be better to just enjoy the simplicity of your youth without risking it being disrupted.
As someone who tried to date when she was 14... just no.
Like... where are you going to go? With who's money are you going to pay for what you do? As my mother put it, "I might as well be dating Pete since I pay for all your "dates."" And she was right if you think about it.
Like... you can't drive. You can't work. You can't get into good movies. You have no money for yourself... there's really just no logic to it other than to say you have a boyfriend.
As most people are saying, he's your semi-romantic best friend until you're at least 16, and then he's more your boyfriend. Save the sex for after 18 though, it's really just the smart thing to do. No matter how careful you are, you don't want chance getting pregnant at 16, or worse, 14. I still haven't had my first boyfriend, and I'm turning 18 in less than a week. You don't have to hurry that much.
Really it's up to you, I had my first boyfriend when I was 17 because I was busy a lot before and never payed much attention to boys lol. I do not see anything wrong with it. Dating at that age is really non committed in a way because obviously your not dating to see who you want to marry ha so I guess you could just see what kind of things you like in guys. I would not recommend dating just so you can say you've dated, date someone who you really enjoy their company. Good luck
You like him he likes you and you want to hang out together, it s fine but I won t call it bf/gf since you re both too young to do the sexual stuff and still fully dependent on your parents. Plus you re still to young to develop anything serious, relationship wise.
it depends on what you guys do together. you can be younger and have a boyfriend. but you can be too young to do certain things with eachother. like sex. and when your family says you are too young its because they dont trust you and the boy to not be having sex.
i got my first boyfriend when i was 15. but there was a rule that we couldnt shut his door to his room. it had to stay open
A lot of girls have one in High School. But honestly I am not sure you can really call dating in HS an actual relationship because usually guys arnt mature that well yet. I didt have a boyfriend in High School although some guys asked me out. But I wasn't ready for that yet. Don't feel pressured to have one just because other girls have one. You have you own reasons why or why not
I guess it really just depends on what your intentions are. And like you type of relationship. At this age, nothing should be sexual. You guys should just get to know eachother :) it's honestly fun, and you guys will be best friends for like ever.
