Teen dating forum of on line dating sites
Does anybody else find it extremely idiotic for teenagers to be in relationships that rarely go any ware, unless something has split : P I mean I am going to start dating, when I'm around 20 and hopefully in Uni because at least they can actually last A friend of mine has a saying: "98% of all teenage relationships end in disaster." He may have made up the statistic - but I believe the saying.In school, I dated many people who were: -liars -cheaters -gold-diggers -criminals ..I've had my heart broken many times, and for what?Recently I saw a notice online about a community forum that hoped to bring teens and their parents together to talk about dating and relationships.And while I don’t mean to be snarky, it made me chuckle because ?You’ve got to hand it to the honest users whose profiles cut to the chase with statuses like “Looking for hook-ups only” or “In search of a lifelong partner.” Like someone’s profile?Direct message them and chances are a response comes back within a few hours.As with everything today, the process has been streamlined and accelerated due to technology.No one is glancing across a room at a party, then spending a week gathering vital information from friends, just to ask someone out on a date.
This is known as “Talking”- which is a total misnomer, as it usually just consists of reciprocated Snap Chats and texts. Phase Three, known as “Hanging Out,”can begin if Talking goes well and the willing participants want to move on.
Throw in our mobile and transient society where so many college kids move on to a different city after graduation.
Why invest time in dating when you know a relationship has a hard expiration date looming?
Of course, there are exceptions to this widespread sequence of events, as traditional “dating” still does seem to happen in a more “formal” way at schools that are considered more conservative and/or religious.
But where does this leave us parents when we want to discuss “dating” issues with our kids?
I mean I sat my friend down and asked him "are you going to marry her" and he was like no.
