Do you think there is any point in a (serious) teenage relationships?

I personally don't think there is any point of being in a serious relationship when you're a teen because most people at that age don't want to commit and want to experiment resulting in heartbreak. & there's a slim chance you're going to be with them till death so what is the point of investing that time that you have into just one person when you can do that in 10 years time when people are ready to commit and all that 🤗

  • From a relationship coaching lens, here are my thoughts. I think there is a point in being in a serious teenage relationship for one solitary reason: we learn from these experiences. When you are a teenager, you will see and meet people that you get really excited about. You will be naïve (as we all were at that age) about what's what but you will think you know. Fine. Go through the experience and hopefully continuously learn more about yourself, your needs and wants.

    All said, the point is to live and learn--something we do best from experiences.

  • I think it's possible, yes. I know of people (older than me, of course) who started dating in high school, fell in love, and are STILL together to this day. I've only dated two people and the first was a very short 2 week period where we went on a handful of dates, and then it ended as quickly as it started (I don't really consider it a relationship though). My boyfriend and I have been together for just over 6 months, and I would say our relationship is pretty serious. But then again, I don't have a lot of experience and this is pretty new to me, considering he is my first "real" boyfriend, so to speak.

  • It made sense years ago when people married at twenty or before, but now it's just setting yourselves up for failure. (More or less a practice run at divorce.)

    People shouldn't date seriously until they are ready for marriage. During the teen years, it's best to appreciate people of the opposite sex as human beings and not some prize to be acquired.

    • agreed. serious dating is really courting if you think about it. Either to move in and cohabit-ate (hopefully for the long hall) or to marry, both of which teenagers can't do

  • Logically speaking, No there is no point in teenage relationships and they are unlikely to last long.

  • The only point I can think of, is to build your confidence, and give you dating experience. I personally never dated a girl till I was 21. And I used to wish someone would have liked me in highschool

  • As a teen, you're better off being in relationships, but cynically. Understand that the vast majority of teen romance ends in failure and heartbreak. Explore, experiment, and navigate your own understanding of relationship, but don't expect it to last.

  • Most teens don't know what they want in life and they need to live for while to see where they stand in life as far as relationships. Not saying that a teen can't be in love but growing up they have many people come their way that confuses them on whether they love them or not love them.

  • Definitely pointless. Plus, teens will have sex and there's a greater chance of STD's and pregnancy since they are kids and aren't as responsible and their hormones are everywhere meaning they'd be 'in the moment' and not care until it's too late.

  • Yeah, I don't see the point either, and that tought is part of why I haven't dated, never, I probably shouldn't think this way, but in my head is all "if I like a girl, there'sno point in actually having something, it won't last".

  • Granted about 99% of teenage relationships don't end in marriage, they do give teens the experience necessary for relationships in their adult lives. After all, mistakes help us learn.

  • Yeah, I think there can be.

    I think you learn how to be in relationships and what you want in them -by being in them-. In some ways the stakes can be lower when young, so there can be some positive learning.

  • I met my fiance when I was 14 and now I'm 4 months shy of 24 and I'm still as in love with him now as I was then. I think some relationships make it.

  • Hmm, I'm pretty pessimistic about this. If the two plan to stay local or attend the same university, it can work for those in their late teens. But I think most people who attend university and leave someone behind or get a job far away, I don't think those have much chances of lasting long when the people are just teens. Too much changing in life, they might grow apart.

  • Your first relationships when you're young are where you learn how relationships really work- what you like, what you need, and how to communicate and open up to someone.

  • teenagers in serious relationships is like playing with fire... with a blowtorch. Teenagers have the bodies of adults, but in many ways they are still children. There brains are literally incapable of processing things rationally, which is why they often do rash and harmful things. Add in hormones and two people, and it's just not a good idea. Teens should be dating and learning those skills, but at a TEEN level, not a 25 year old living together for 4 years level. This is why there is so much drama in teen relationships, depression, girls getting pregnant and self-worth being shattered. I dated as a teenager and I have to say it really hindered my progress in life and I would have had a much happier, and more fun time had I waited to get serious

  • It depends on the person. Not every teen looks at relationships as if they're nothing. Most do, but not all. By your logic there's no point in ANYONE dating unless they know for certain they're going to marry that person.
