Dating At A Young Age (Too Young Sometimes!)

Nowadays, younger and younger kids are busy in the world of dating. Crushes, heartbreaks, jealousy, and even infidelity. We thought love problems only occur when we are adults, when we are more mature, etc. That’s why it’s quite preposterous that kids as young as 11 are having boyfriends or girlfriends.

Yes, girls nowadays do mature faster than girls did many years ago. So, that’s probably why they get involved with all this stuff. I don’t know about boys though.

When I was 11, 12, I only listened to my friends talk about boys. Haha! I wasn’t into the latest music too. The only groups I heard of were Backstreet Boys and the Spice Girls. When my friend asked me who my favourite member of BSB was and I simply picked a guy in the picture. It happened to be Brian something. Well, most of them liked Nick Carter. He looked the most attractive among all of them but I wanted to be different so I just picked another fella without even knowing his name!

Then, when my batch entered secondary school, there was more talk about boys. Who’s cute and who’s not. Who’s nice and who’s nasty. Who went out with who, who broke up with who, etc.

Some people went for tuition to flirt, ogle at their crushes, etc. And I thought tuition was for studying. To learn more. To finally understand what they could not understand at school.

Anyway, kids in secondary school are quite old enough to know what they want. But, is it advisable for those still in primary school to date? Well, maybe they can still date but under parental supervision! I wonder who wants it.

Look at the Sweet Valley books. Jessica Wakefield is known as the twin who’s crazy for boys. 12 was the age she started dating, I guess. Which guy did she like, I don’t remember. I know that Elizabeth Wakefield was always going steady with Todd something.

In a way, the Sweet Valley books are bad influence. It depends on the reader though.

As for those young kids who are in a hurry to grow up, I hope they enjoy their childhood while there’s still time.

I think when kids start dating at primary school it is just a name thing. As in a label. So I won't worry so much about it. But I do get wat you mean. Kids are dating younger and younger right and you wonder whether it is a good thing or not!

What uni did you get into? Congrats for getting your first choice! And something that you like! I'm happy for you! =) Congrats congrats! Good luck in doing all the preparation! Medical check up and everything! Take care!

A label? Yeah, maybe it's not that serious since they're only kids and all but we never know! And young kids should stick to playing and running around the field. Too many exams now so they need to sweat out a little. That's only my opinion!

And thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
