How do you feel about high school relationships?

How do you feel? Are they useless, good for the experience, or could potentially be the real deal? Speak from experience if you have any!

Brian asking about relationships? How out of place.
I think they're good for getting experience with what it's like to have a boyfriend/girlfriend relationship, and I do consider them the "real deal" in that I don't consider them less valid than relationships between adults.

I see most high school relationships like bikes with training wheels. You're still riding a bike, but you're also still learning.

As with anything, practice is beneficial. Some individuals are more mature than others, some individuals are more susceptible to pressure than others, these relationships may be serious or may not, they may last awhile or not...

People change, as with any stage of life, but it seems much more changing happens during teenage years-twenties, so saying they aren't bound to last would seem reasonable (when looking at high school sweethearts) however that isn't always the case, some people change with their partners.

Every guy I dated was not serious in that I thought I'd marry him but I did think we would be together for awhile. High school drama and differences didn't allow the relationships to last. Well up to sophomore year.

These previous relationships and asking guys out gave me experience with asking someone out, rejection, what it feels like to break up, feeling special, learning to kiss, learning queues, appropriate and not so awesome ways to break up, balancing friendship and relationships, etc ...

When I met my partner at the end of sophomore year I had a good idea of what I wanted, for a 15/16 year old. We are still together almost 13 years later... We've changed together, we are better versions of ourselves...

I do not think we missed out on anything. A bird in the hand is better than two in the Bush. In other words if you're happy with what you've got why would you try to seek anything else.

I know just as many successful high school sweethearts as I do with high school sweethearts that didn't work out.

I've seen them be the "real deal" many times.

Young love has many benefits even if the relationship doesn't turn out to be a lifelong romantic relationship.

High school relationships help people learn about what they want and don't want from a relationship. They can also help you learn who you are and where you want to go in life. They're also good for teaching you how to treat a partner and be a "team player" and be in a partnership.

They're probably not going to last, but if that's a reason not to get into one then you wouldn't EVER get into any relationships. So I'm inclined to say "do whatever." However, I've seen a bit of research evidence suggesting that starting to have relationships younger is related to relationship dysfunction later in life, so there's a possibility that it's a bad idea. I haven't seen enough to convince me that it's more than correlational, but it's possible that, since young peoples' relationships tend to be dysfunctional because young people are less mature, they could be developing bad relationship habits that are hard to shake. Not enough evidence for a definite "don't do that!" by any stretch of the imagination, but maybe something to consider.
