Reasons Why Middle School Relationships Are Stupid

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

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.

They see it on T.V. and think they're cool and mature getting into relationships. I can tell you it is absolute garbage. You can't just pick a random person you think is cool and say you "love" them. It has to be real. A friend of the opposite gender asked me out once; I had to decline because I knew we'd be through in about a week and it wasn't love.

Ok, I'm sure at least some of you might agree on this, but lets face it.
if you have a relationship that lasts past elementary school through highschool, YOU KNOW that you did something right. but...if you start a relationship in middle school, and it lasts through there and beyond...good god that's something absolutely no one could have done in the history of mankind

2 Most people aren't mature enough

This is so true, I seen a lot of toxic relationships, rumors and you know a lot of other stuff can happen like since the it's a naive type of relationship it's gonna be a lot of cries and frustrations and wouldn't even focus on school either. School is more important than falling in love (I'm sorry but it's true for me because I rather be successful than crying over a ex that I'll regret dating)

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...

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.

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.

Let me tell you something. I'm 13 and gossip is the worst. I guess I'm attractive in some way because girls like me. This causes SO MUCH gossip. People walk up to me during break and go like, "Are you dating Leilani S.?" Me, " NO, I don't even know who that is and I've never dated before, so please go away."

4 Causes needless stress

I agree because he is very toxic and enjoys talking about me when I'm not present. He consistently causes stress for me. Recently, my parents and I visited the school to file a complaint about his behavior. He even threatened to involve his 10th-grade sister in a fight with me. Honestly, it seems like he craves attention because I don't give it to him. Furthermore, he ended our relationship by claiming it was dull, but he wasn't contributing positively either. However, I'm not complaining, to be honest. He was simply making my life unbearable if we're being completely honest. He's essentially a clown, and his anger stems from his own miserable life, which should not have any effect on mine. As my mom wisely said, there's no need to get worked up over someone who seeks attention by doing unnecessary things, and that's the end of it.

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.

5 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.

6 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.

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

There's no supporting in middle school. Most people just get in relationships to look cool, mature and get attention.

8 Your life shouldn't peak in middle school

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.

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

9 It usually ends after a few days

My friend Jack likes me. We are really good friends and he wanted to take it to the next level. I am in 6th grade too. I don't think it is a good idea but I love being his friend and I don't want to ruin that.

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.

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!

10 Most of the boys are perverts

All they ever talk about is breast, butts, and testicles. It's not uncommon for a girl who is on her period and in one of these dumb middle school relationships to have her "boyfriend" tell his friends that she's on her period behind her back then have a group of boys sneak into the main girl bathroom and peak over and under the stalls.

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.

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.

The Contenders
11 Usually ends in heartbreak

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

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

Been through it, not fun

12 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.

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.

14 Could lead to sexual intercourse

I used to think that a kiss was the furthest point in a relationship so I wanted to be in one. Then I learned the fact that most people want intercourse so I will just stay single for life and enjoy it.

Some people in my school are talking about "it" and I'm just like "boy" this is middle school you shouldn't be celebrating you should be checking into a doctors office.

What if it's an online relationship? You can't really have online intercourse

15 They hardly ever end up getting married

Even though I know someone who started dating at 14 and is now married for 15 years, almost all first relationships fail.

16 It's a waste of time

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

Mhm. I think it's a waste of time because its pointless. You don't get anything from it, except for a migraine.

17 They do it to look cool not to love each other

Exactly. Literally most of the time they don't even really like each other.

Not exactly to look cool, but to look mature/good.

18 It always causes awkward conversations after the breakup

I didn't talk to him for 2 years.

19 Immaturity leads to distress
20 They are too young

12 years old is WAYYY to young to date. I don't care what anybody says. I'm almost 12 myself and I just can't see me "dating" some guy who is probably only doing it for attention.

No one believed me, even now. I am in the 8th grade and people still be doing this. They cal me asexual because I don't want a realtionship, but I am stright and like dudes

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

Yep. Everyone I know is bragging about their boyfriend, when they 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

Sometimes they don't even hold hands...

23 Makes your friends uncomfortable

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

24 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

All they ever talk about is About how their girlfriend is going to come in the most revealing clothing.

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

25 Can end up with blackmailing nudes

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

Worst outcome, but still happens.
