When students date in middle school, it can often end in a bad situation. There have been many relationships that have lead to bullying and losing friends. 

Having a relationship during the school year can make your studying habits bad, and that can lead to bad grades. It may lead to other bad habits such as dropping out of school and cause bad behaviors, according to

At a young age, you should be focusing on yourself. As a kid, you probably would be excited for when you reach the age you are allowed to finally date. But, dating at a young age can cause bad choices and behavior problems.

My personal advice, focus on friends and school over dating.
