Dating in high school September 5, 2006Posted by sdpurtill in Girls, High School, Rants.
Retrospectively, I completely agree with my dad’s advice to not date in high school. But hind sight is 20/20. And speaking of vision, I need to get some glasses; it’s hard to drive when you can’t see the road signs until they’re 10 feet in front of you :p…
But seriously, I find dating in high school to be one of the stupidest things ever. I am passionately against it. I know of only two couples that dated all through high school and got married. I don’t think I’m being pessemistic about these relationships; I think I’m just being realistic. I try being
objectional objective and listen to my friends who are dating, but the more and more I see these relationships fall apart, the more and more I know my view of it is right.
Here’s a list of my reasons why dating is a waste of time in high school
#1 – It’s a waste of time
All the time that you could be learning, gaining an edge on everyone else in life. While they’re out wasting their time with their partners, you are free to learn anything! Oh the possibilities… You could become a senior web developer, an award winning designer, an architect, a writer for the newspaper. All this time could be spent towards something that has relevant to your life after high school.
#2 – It’s such a waste of money
Unless you’re making $100 an hour, then you have no business taking a girl on extravagent dates. Spending your life savings on your girlfriend’s birthday present is stupider than spending it on weed. Well maybe not, but they’re both just as stupid. The worst is when a girl is waiting to break up with the guy, but “only after my birthday.” I have a friend who did that, she got a Tiffany necklace and then broke up with him 3 days later. Smart move buddy, should have spent that $500 on yourself.
#3 – It’s a waste of emotions
Emotions that you can’t get back. Ok this is getting kind of gay, enough said about that.
#4 – You lose all of your friends
This is true about almost any relationship; the couple ditches everyone else so they can spend that precious time with eachother. Oh, did I mention that all that time was a waste ? If you’ve got close enough friends, then they’ll accept you back when you’ve broken up with your “lover.” Psh. Writing this makes me hate high school dating even more.
#5 – It’s suuuuuuuch a waste of money
Money that you could invest. Money that you could pay for college with. Money that you could buy a car with. Money that you could open a company with. Money makes the world go ’round, not your stupid girlfriend.
Ok I’m done. The list is much longer, but I’m too tired to embellish. Those are my 5 main points, and I’ll always stick by them. Because in the end, I’ll be right every single time.
