People make their own decisions as they reach the right time and age, and when it comes to making decisions, so does responsibilities. In every choice we make, there must be a reason to it. It could be bad. It could be good. They could lead to anything; even the most complicated things. High school days are known by everyone to be the most fantastic and amazing part of anybody’s life. This is when people had encountered significant experiences worthy to be told to peers and interested individuals. Four years packed with important events essential for their learning made them who they are, and helped them to go through life’s more realistic problems. This is when they also encountered incidents concerning matters of the heart, one of which is being involved in boyfriend-girlfriend relationships. Dating is a form of socialization.

Teenagers are well aware of the fact that they should focus on their studies first before having a serious relationship. But still, some high school students choose to follow their emotions and desires which is to have a boyfriend or a girlfriend. This occurrence in the high school division is somewhat alarming for the reason that it shows the hurried emotional phase of the students. They are quite taken with the wonderful things that young love imparts, as shown in movies, TV shows, books, and others. Most teenagers hope to form the foundation of a long and healthy relationship. They search for a partner with whom they can communicate honestly, someone with whom they can enjoy great intimacy. Discovery of such a partner lays the groundwork for a healthy teenage relationship.
