People often say, and will always say, teenage relationships are stupid, the start quickly, they end quickly.

It seems to me that this is the case because teenagers don't want to be in a relationship which is fucking miserable, well, that to me, is pretty fucking logical.

All the parents of my friends are either divorsed, and are with asshole step parents, OR are so fucking weak they can't bring themselves to get divorsed so instead stay with their partners and just live in the shittiest situation ever where the fear of people alone on the death bed is the only thing keeping each other together.

I see it as more the responsibilities that weigh older people down, house, car, marriage, kids. All straps you down is a pain to get the fuck out of.

A whineing teenager is ranting about parents, not original but who gives a shit.

...who gives a shit.

What the fuck.

Anyways I always saw teenage relationships in high school. I found it hilarious how some girls would write Girl's Name + Boy's Name 4 Ever.

Riiiiight.

Although to be fair, there are teenage relationships that last all the way through and turn out well.

Threads like these are very vulnerable to men with imaginary girlfriends. Careful when making these.

Anyways the point of teenage relationships is...Well I can't just generalise it like that. It depends on a specific relationship. It would be like calling all americans fat ignorant fucks who start wars based on nothing and then just say OH LOL NEVERMIND and expect the world to forget it or it's almost as stupid as calling americans retards for emphasising their tiny contribution to the World Wars.

Teenage relationships ARE stupid, and I'm only a few years removed from my teenage years. The reason is you're still trying to figure out who you are, which, sad to say, does not occur until your 20s, so trying to pin down who you like is putting yourself in a corner.

I think when people say that teenage relationships are stupid, they really mean the "Hey, wanna go out?" "Sure" "Cool, I love you soooooooo much, we're gonna be together forever" relationships. Cause those ones are fucking stupid.
The relationships with people that actually see something worthwhile in their partner aren't so bad though.

Your brother is the exception, not the rule.

I think it's good for younger kids to experience relationships, but it annoys me when the drama spills over on public sites for everyone to see.

12 year old hanging around and making out is the most funny and stupid thing I've ever seen at the same time.

You can derive my opinion from that statement on this matter.

Teenage relationships are good fun and they are also training for college relationships and adult relationships. It is just good fun most of the time as long as your don't take it too seriously.

I have no idea what your trying to tell me, but I have the impulse to say "no".

Nah, I'm not angry at the teens, I know I'm almost not gonna be with the same person till I'm dead, that's fucking fairy tale bollocks and I'm a realist, so is she.

I'm pissed when the dumbass generation that raised us, has the fucking integrity, to call us stupid when they themselves are in the worst possible fucking relationship status... living with someone you hate 90% of the time coz your afraid or too weak to end it... I can not fathom the words to describe how I feel about that lol

Teenage relationships are stupid as fuck. I'm a teenager, I know this. But we tend to ignore that fact, since we're pumped all full of hormones and shit. That, and we're afraid of being alone. It's a fact that someone who is single is more likely to be depressed, a la the "Nobody loves me, I hate life" point of view. What's the point of this thread again?

Most people have relationships that don't turn out how they planned. It's why you shouldn't have high expectations and wait til you at least mature a bit. Too much pressure and sex everywhere for young kids these days and it only ends up causing problems.

They're overvalued because the whole experience is still relativity new to both parties.

Exactly, you just need to experience them as stupid as they might seem.

As simple as that.

Pretty much this. Everyone could use a little experience before they actually try dating for realsies.

Teenage relationships shouldn't really be taken seriously since they are thinking more with their raging hormones rather than their heart and mind.

also it's more like puppy love than a relationship

They're stupid if you're expecting a serious relationship out of it, but it helps you build your social skills and gives yourself a good idea about what kind of person you would like to date in the future. It can also boost your confidence knowing that you've been able to have a relationship. You'll feel depressed in the future because you'll trick yourself into thinking that you'll never be with anyone.

I think there just something to do in highschool. I only had 1 REAL girlfriend in HS ; then after that experience I said unless I plan on marrying the girl, its a waste of time for me to limit myself to just ONE girl. You have to test the waters before you dive in and possibly drown.

Relationships aren't about love. It's about how much you can get hurt to be loved by someone else.

Teenage relationships are just the beginning. I'd rather enjoy the little things before the pain starts knocking at your front door.

Not all marriages end badly. Statistically, about fifty percent of them do which means that fifty percent of them don't. That's a lot more than you can say for high school relationships. How many teenage relationships actually last more than a couple years at most? Not fifty percent, that's for sure. The percentage is almost certainly a single digit number. Suffice to say, I think that you're underestimating the structural integrity of adults' relationships.

Generally, eenage relationships don't last for a number of reasons. First of all, the participants have no experience dealing with having any sort of partner, not to mention a long term partner. This leads to naive mistakes. Secondly, teenagers are flooded with hormones and their impulse control is limited. These are symptoms of the stage of neurological development that lasts from the beginning of puberty to around age 25. Thirdly, also as a result of their stage of neurological development, teenagers' capacity for empathy is lower than that of adults. That means that they don't have as great of an ability to understand the perspectives, positions and actions of their partners. Fourthly, the majority of teenagers are insecure on one level or another, so they have a greater propensity for jealously, over-protectiveness and/or issues with self-deprecation. Lastly, the majority of teenagers are dealing with identity issues, so emotionally, they're not in a good position to maintain a lasting relationship.

By the way, this is coming from someone of your age range, so the reason that I believe this is not because I have some sort of holier-than-thou mindset.

this is why i dont mess with relationships anymore.

They never last, and I honestly dont want them to. I don't want a ball n' chain until im around 30 or so. And the whole "gotta get laid" thing is kind of stupid.

have fun with your kids, bub.

dont breed if you cant feed.
