Seventh Graders Spill The Beans About Their Dating Life
Times have definitely change. Well, maybe not too much.
I guess you can say I was a late bloomer. While all of my friends had their first "relationship" in middle school and their first legit relationship in high school, I didn't get into a relationship until my freshman year of college. Of course, I had the typical crush here and there, but in the seventh grade the only thing I was worried about was catching episodes of Taina and Degrassi. My friends would come to me with their so called boy troubles and looking back on it a decade later, I find it rather humorous.
We were twelve and thirteen years old calling these actual relationships. Well, from the looks of it -- it doesn't seem like much has changed. Tweens are dating younger and younger. I'm definitely getting old. To think that these kids are in relationships and I'm single at the ripe age of twenty-five says quite a lot. The Atlantic's“Ask a Tween” series, digs deep inside the "dating" lives of seventh graders. They covered everything from date spots, chill spots, feelings on the opposite sex and their dream date. Are you kidding me? Those were the least of my worries at that age.
