Sophomore girl dating 8th grade boy
For example, I can be having a coffee at Starbucks and see them in front of the fountain down the street.
If they decide to go around the corner for ice cream then I may decide I need to run into the drugstore across the street from there and follow them (always from a distance of course!
) I don't do that every time, just enough to get a feel for the group she's hanging out way. There is plenty of time to learn about boundries and things like that.
In fact the day I kissed someone was because around 20 kids decided I waited to long (I was then 14) so they decided I was going to kiss one of them. kissing, and when I hit 15 I was doing more than kissing too.
The end result is that I never sought my parents advise on any dating situation (even in my teens and twenties) and looking back on it, I REALLY wish I could have had it.
I went through lots of really rough patches all by myself.
If you do not "allow dating" you are not "allowing" a discussion with your child about it.
I was shy and timid and not so into young dating anyway, but my family was big on teasing and my mom was big on relentlessly telling EVERYTHING that could go bad in EVERY situation.
I had my first boyfriend/kiss at about the same age, and it was all very sweet until the boy tried to put his tongue down my throat, GROSS!!!
