Reasons Why Middle School Relationships Are Stupid


The Top Ten

1 Most of the time, it's not real love

Its just plain stupid

I do not think that any middle school or even high school love is real. I remembered getting into a middle school relationship with a girl back when I was in seventh grade. It felt good at first, but within a few weeks, it was over and it created a lot of stress and agony for the two of us. Animosity took place, and it wasn't really that pleasant of an experience. Middle school relationships are curses, and I think that there's nothing beneficial about them. - dingodile2603

Yes, most of the time, but not all of the time. I’m in middle school and I truly love my girlfriend - NightmareCinema

From previous experiences from my old middle school (or Primary/early high school since I don't live in America) I have found that Relationships there last about five minutes walking around the school field just to get attention from classmates.

2 Most people aren't mature enough

I have a friend who's in college, and he says you don't need to be in a relationship until your out of high school. And I agree with him. Cause why do you need a mate in high school or middle school? - nintendofan126

My parents met in high school and had my sister than me after getting married so shut it! - Skullkid755

There's some kid who looked stupid and I said the day he got his 1st girlfriend before I did was that I would consider cutting off my feet. Recently he got a girlfriend and I still haven't got one so I cut off both my feet. See? That's how immature we are! Also that kid didn't even go out with that girl for a full day... - SirSkeletorThe3rd

This is really true. A lot of the guys and girls and just looking for the title of "girlfriend/boyfriend". And they think that they are mature, they're really not. They still haven't develop their frontal lobe yet. People just need to calm down, like seriously.

If you ask me, middle school age is way too young to be able to handle the complexities of a relationship. - RockFashionista

3 They cause you to be included in gossip

When I dated a person (not going to name her), my peers caught wind, and they started watching my every move with that girl. It was so annoying that I was forced to break up with the girl just to get them to stop talking about it; however, even though I'm still in middle school, I'm actually mature enough to think middle school dating, and the never-ending gossip is completely pointless and stupid, and that teachers and staff should take action against it.

Many people at school just want to mind their own business, and don't want others to be all up in their business. However, if you choose to get into the drama of a middle school relationship, many people would be talking about every single action that you do, and get angry at you if you make a mistake, even though no one's perfect. - ethanmeinster

How is this not the top?! I'm in middle school and all I want to do is talk to my mate (a boy) and now he hasn't talked to me for 5 MONTHS now because there are rumours that I like him. I wish people understood what no means

There's a big, fat, ugly girl in my art class and someone thinks I like her but I can't say she's a damn freak of nature!

4 Causes needless stress

I was just in a relationship with the most beautiful girl in the school and she broke up with me becasue all the stress that was being caused.

Ha! I'm very glad that I've never dated at school. It can distract you from your education.

You can end up getting a lot of pressure from peers and if not careful, start being bullied or become a laughing stock


5 It usually ends after a few days

It only lasted 2 weeks before I got sick of him. I was in the 6th grade at the time. Before we started dating, we were great friends. I hated dating him, it was a dare made by a friend, and it turned out, the boy actually liked me. I broke up with him through a friend, since I was too scared to actually say it myself. The break-up shattered our friendship, but we became friends again in the 8th grade. - Pegasister12

Literally every relationship in my school has ended within weeks. If you're going to be in a relationship, you might as well be serious about it! - Icantbelieveitsnotbutter

There's this hoe at my middle school. 13 boyfriends in one school year. Each relationship has an estimated 1-2 week duration. My close friends and I got busted for calling her a hoe LOL

Actually a friend of mine dated his Girlfriend for 7 years in school - KDProductions

6 You could get in trouble

In my school district, there are rules against PDA, and detention can be issued if caught. Any "inappropriate touching" or "sending nudes" could lead to legal issues or expulsion, even if the two give each other permission. - ethanmeinster


7 Your life shouldn't peak in middle school

So what if it does? - NightmareCinema

While it may be tempting to get a relationship early, it's not all about that in life. If you're just concentrating on needless drama, then you'd fall behind your peers who are working hard to get to college. I'd say that it's best to focus on your own academic and family issues before focusing on relationships. - ethanmeinster

I agree, people should wait until they're older. - cosmo


8 Can lead to bullying

If emotional tensions get too high, then bullying, both emotional and physical, can occur. Hateful or threatening texts can be sent or a fight can occur. Also, both guys and girls have fought with whoever cheated on them. - ethanmeinster


9 Usually ends in heartbreak

Even highschool & college relationships end in heartbreak. Happens to all of us.

I did it once a became depressed afterwards

Heartbreak, like death, it happens all the time

Maybe. But you must accept it. First rule of life... - Fandom_Lover

10 You probably don't have enough money to support them

Why do u need to support them...your in middle school. Your not gonna need money for a house payment

This problem does not exist, I'm pretty sure. - BKAllmighty


The Contenders

11 They never even talk or just be awkward around each other

That's what it was like during the relationship, which was only 2 weeks. - Pegasister12

Exactly what happens at my school

So true my friends and I made this rule don't say you have a crush on them until you've relajes and gotten to know them

Ha! The feels. - Fandom_Lover

12 Most of the boys are perverts

Agreed, obviously not all of them are but my first relationship in 8th grade lasted 3 days before the guy wanted to start grabbing A$s. Smh.

60% of my male classmates are perverts, but I with the other 36% are not perverts.

Indeed! Boys between the ages of 12 - 15 years can be very perverted because they just hit puberty & they have not been educated about sexual harassment, at this point in life. - clusium

I am at the start of puberty right now. I am now 5 "8" inches tall and my voice is getting a bit deeper. - EpicJake

13 Way too much drama, and always ends in crying

Just my faithful opinion, but what is the point of dating when in the next several weeks your face will be smashed against a pillow drenched in tears? I choose not to date because it's not like my first crush will marry me, and we will end up breaking up at some point!

Not much when I was with someone. I was kind of regretting it, but moved on. - Fandom_Lover

14 Could lead to sexual intercourse

I'm in seventh grade and a girl almost got pregnant. - Popsicles

That’s the point of every relationship...

Yuh Most 11th Graders In My Class Are Always Talking About Losing Their Virginity This Year. - AlphaQ

So can any other relationship.

15 They hardly ever end up getting married

Unless they have REALLY incredible luck

Hardly? more like never. - MountainDewKid101

16 It's a waste of time

Seriously? - NightmareCinema

I was in the 8th grade, my friends pushed this kid I liked to date me and I friend zoned him after a day because I felt so confined and its retarded to be at an age where instead of just having fun you have to feel as of you need someone to love, at 13 0_o thank god I was somewhat smart and at least had the brain at that age to realize that middle school relationships is a waste of time and nothing to stress about I'm a small bit older and still single I've had people ask me out and I still say no do to confinement, I just wanna do my thing... so again waste of time and useless depression when you break up :P

Children at this age should be focusing on more important things in their lives. Love can wait.

17 It always causes awkward conversations after the breakup

very true

I didn't talk to him for 2 years. - Pegasister12


18 Immaturity leads to distress
19 They are too young

So young to not know true love, kids these days are idiots


That’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard - NightmareCinema

20 You will get caught up in the relationship and not know how to end it and when it ends you'll be heart broken
21 They do it to look cool not to love each other
22 All you do is hold hands and aren't actually dating

All you really do is hold hands while you walk beside each other or maybe- just maybe- you'll actually kiss, but it's rare

Yep. Everyone I know is bragging about their boyfriend, when they aren't actually dating. - RiverClanRocks

He didn't even want to hold hands. - Pegasister12

True, but ma fruends kiss like everyday.

23 Most likely ends up with blackmailing nudes

Don't send nudes in the first place, that's the stupidest thing to do.

24 Makes your friends uncomfortable

Makes it hard to talk to my friend because. Of her gossiping about stuff

25 They may get into situations which should never happen in people their age.

Ya. One of them thought they were pregnant at 11! what. Thankfully they were pregnnat

Whait what?

26 MSN is their biggest means of communication


27 They are based on looks and not love

True you don't want to know how many times these ugly dudes in my class ask out girls because of their butt. Oh but don't worry she'll say yes and it will be all over...rightYeeahno

That’s retarded. I had a girlfriend before I even knew what she looked like, so, no - NightmareCinema

28 Leads to bad grades

If you have bad grades there will be a number of consequences, from gossips about you, to angry parents, to ruining your life. - MChkflaguard_Yt

29 They don't know what they actually want and need

Many pre teens and teenagers are quite clueless when it comes to dating. Even if you love them, you may not work for them, or they may not work for you. Most of them also haven't found themselves yet and can't know what they need from their partner and vice versa.

30 Whenever they're hanging around you and your friends and see their crush, they just ditch you and go to him or her

This is really frustrating and hasn't killed anyone's glasses yet - AlphaQ

31 Everyone is so uncomfortable

No matter who it is, everyone is still in puberty so that's messed up. We had to do ballroom dancing and everyone is uncomfortable so its dumb when your going to be next to that person. Why can't everyone just be friends for now?

32 Leads to lost interest or care about school
33 Most of your friends hate either the boyfriend or the girlfriend

Exactly this is whats happening right now
