Here are ten tips to keep in mind while dating in high school. If a girl is known around campus as a cheater or if a guy's reputation is less than angelic, don't. Seventeen has answers to all your biggest dating questions and crush drama — plus, exclusive relationship tips and hookup help!. I remember spending like half an hour trying to look good most mornings to impress some girl. That was stressful. But even looks aside, dating within your school.
If you're creative, get involved with a writing group or join the band. Get out there and meet people and be able to have something to bring to the conversation. Pick someone you have something in common with. If you are a honor roll student and member of the key club, but you're interested in the slacker in the back row, you will have conflicted interests. More importantly, if you are a needy person and you want to date a loner, you will have problems getting to a comfortable intimacy level.
Try to find someone that you think you can relate to - socially and mentally. Don't think you can change a leopard's spots. If a girl is known around campus as a cheater or if a guy's reputation is less than angelic, don't think that you will be the one to break the mold. Nothing is worse than being the one who 'shoulda-seen-it-coming' when a person's old habits repeat themselves. Separate your relationship from your school responsibilities.
No one wants to be known as the 'dramatic couple that has epic battles by the soda machines every Tuesday. It's perfectly fine to feel insecure and unsure of what is expected of you and how you should take certain phrases or situations.
High school is a time of trying to figure out how the world works and the start of finding who you are.
