Dating for a teenager
But how do we teach our children what type of person they like?
We teach them that they need to go on many dates to see what kind of person they are attracted to both physically and personality wise.
Now as an adult, I don’t have as many group dates because my focus is now on finding someone who I could see spending the rest of my life with.
I’m not looking for that at 16, and my maturity level has increased (well, in some areas at least).
These and other similar thoughts are thoughts that many young people have.
They look to the future for better things to come and think once they finally happen then they will be happy.
They will wait for a partner to start being the best they can be, to learn certain things, and they don’t think that they can possibly be happy now without it. It comes from hormones, how pretty or good looking the other person is, fun times you have with this person, kissing, cuddling, hand holding, and eventually sex.
Men who will take the initiative to plan something and take charge, and to be responsible.
Protection from others and sketchy areas are included, but it can also be from each other.
Guys shouldn’t force the girl to kiss them or make out, they should respect her space and never try and do anything that would make her uncomfortable.
It doesn’t mean that she can’t pay, but it shows her what it’s like to be taken care of (even just for one night).
Girls should also be taught to say “Thank You” when a guy pays, instead of expecting it and not saying anything.
