Dating is a stage of romantic relations in humans whereby two people meet socially with the aim of each assessing the other's suitability as a prospective partner in an intimate relation...(this may have a regular basis and may or may not be into sexual relations)

Now the question is, what's high school individual's perspective concerning the relationship in high school? 

Below are some opinions and views most students shares...

Everyone has a way of how he/she makes differences but on this particular topic been discussed, 80% of students on the same stance says, " Dating in high school allows one to build skills needed to have a relationship in a no-pressure environment because by the time one is in college you may feel pressured to find "the one" because you will see others around you getting married but in high school, no one is getting married".

Some also said, " It's worth it for the experience alone the ability to grow with someone to learn how to love and how to be loved though in the modern dating landscape there's nothing like high school individuals jump into relationships too quickly this is the stage where one has mastered three important qualities that's, communication, respect, and responsibilities though there are breakups and all that also builds one for the future".

Also, every person someone dates during their life will teach them what they do and do not want and obviously that is no different for high school students. If the parties involved are matured and stable enough to realize what they have gained or what they have learned then it would be unquestionably have been worth it. 

High school relationships have got nothing to do with bad but the only problem has got up to Africa parent's perception of dating been evil. They said.

Well... Based on this, Parents may disapprove of their child's partner because that's not whom they pictured their child would end up with. Whether that's tied to personally, physically, appearance, socioeconomic, sexual orientation, disability, race, cultural or religious backgrounds, career, or other life voice. That's a personal analogy by myself.

In conclusion, Although many negative effects of dating during the pre-teen and early adolescent years are noted, poor academic performances, low educational aspirations, delinquency, enduring poor social skills, sexual activities, depression, and drug use. Having a boyfriend or girlfriend during high school years seems to have effects but it's nice to have the experience and since it prepares one's awareness and readiness.

Well..... Everyone has a different way of making up his/her own opinion or conception.
