Try not to make a relationship your whole world because it will limit your experience in other areas of life.
High School AP Courses-What Are They and Should I Take Them?
Even if you are in a healthy relationship and would like to have sex with your partner, some beliefs or expectations might make this decision more complicated.
You and the people in your life might have different ideas about when or what type of sexual activity is alright and what is not.
Also, if something goes wrong, you'll need your core group of friends to hold you up and be there for you. Having middle men and friends that like to interfere ('help') only makes problems worse. Whether you're 15 or 55, keeping open communication with the person you're dating is absolutely essential.
High schools are full of rumors and drama - don't get sucked into arguments caused by something a friend of a friend might have seen. Most of bad break-ups and horrible fights of high school dating could have been avoided if the couple had made an effort to talk to one another about problems instead of jumping to conclusions. Don't push your boundaries, and don't let anyone else cross them.
Just remember that you are capable of making your own decisions and creating your own set of values.
You shouldn’t have to have sex to keep your partner.
You may feel comfortable kissing or holding hands but not want to go any further. Deciding whether you want to have sex or when you should is a decision you should make when it feels right for YOU.
Taking on more work in an already stressful high school situation may sound like madness to some, but for others the payoff could be huge.
In a healthy relationship, both partners are able to express their feelings and respect each other’s boundaries about sex.
