Teenage love matches dating
relationship is official “when you start telling your friends and family,” says one NDP student.“Or, when she offers to pay for gas,” says math teacher Dr. Various forms of dating and even more definitions exist in regards to it.Dating is such a complex matter that has taken on different shapes over the years. Paige Bowe, an NDP alumni who has returned as a substitute teacher shares her views on dating: how it was like when she was in high school, how she views it now, the differences between then and now, and what might be causing some of these changes.As high school students, people do not always realize that there is a whole life ahead of them to find someone they truly love.
“There was also a lot of pressure to ‘hook up’ with guys,” she adds.“They are attracted to the idea of ‘love’ and sometimes they mistakenly jump into a relationship that they do not really want.Girls especially would idealize a boy because they want to fulfill this dream of the ‘perfect couple.’” Bowe says that dating is “the same for the most part” on the NDP campus today compared to when she was in high school.’ And my response was always, ‘When you’ve done a lot of shopping, you know it when you find it,’” she said.High school, often referred to as the best four years of life, is a time to grow as a person and learn more about oneself.
