Dating should be reserved for when people get into high school; friends are best in middle school.

In middle school, I believe kids should have really close relationships with friends, but should save dating for high school and college. Why date if you definitely won't be marrying the person. In high school there is an actual chance that you might marry the person you date. Why cause so much heartache for no reason at such a young age?

Good luck!
1) A good relationship starts out slowly. If a couple plans to marry after high school then they should start dating in middle school. It's their choice.
2) Dating in middle school matures and opens their mind faster than normal because they find themselves in a relationship and realize if they marry they would need to take care of a child, find a job, etc. This opens up their minds thus they would realize marrying isn't as easy as it seems. Therefore we have more cautious students.

Default victory in less than 500 characters.
I'll like to bring up arguments:
3) Dating benefits the economy. Dating in general brings income because you need to buy flowers, etc. The economy generates some income thru sales taxes, thus if kids "date" in middle school then it will benefit the economy earlier, than in high school.
4) Dating has health benefits. A stroll in the park during a date is healthy. Middle school children should do some walking to get lessen obesity risk.
Thank you.
