First of all, I thank Con for creating this debate and I hope we can have a great debate.

My opponent's statement is not supported by any proofs. I will refute my opponent.

Dating and Grades

Con said that dating can cause students lazy and don't have time to learn. Although this is true in some cases, dating can have a positive effects on their grades in some cases. They can study together on their dates. And if they are getting bad grades, their parents could set some boundaries.

And I have some reasons why dating is alright for high school students :

Dating and Confidence

Dating increases a teenager's overall self-confidence and standing with her peers. Going out with a partner reinforces the positive feelings and sense of attractiveness. This can spill over into higher self-esteem and better performance in school and other activities.

Dating and Compromise

Dating teaches teenagers about compromise. A healthy relationship requires both parties to sometimes make a sacrifice so both can be happy. It's a valuable skill that can be used in adulthood in family and workplace situations.

Dating and Trust

Dating teaching youngsters the importance of trust and honesty. These two things are the basis of a healthy relationship. Children's Hospital Boston explains there may be breaches of trust. This teaches the teen how to resolve problems or draw boundaries when necessary.

Dating and Fun

Dating is a social activity that gives teenagers an outlet to go to movies, dances and other enjoyable places and share the fun with a significant other. This is a good outlet that offsets some of the pressure of schoolwork and extracurricular activities.

Dating and Compatibility

Dating is an opportunity for a young person to figure out what he is looking for in a partner. Teens learn which traits they find most attractive in others and the things that are annoying. This information is valuable in the eventual search for a marriage partner.

Dating and Rejection

Dating can help teenagers to learn how to deal with rejection, because they will face many disappointments in adulthood. Many teen romances do not last long, and break-ups provide youngsters with experience in handling hurt and rejection.

Dating and Maturity

Dating can help teenagers to feel independent and mature. It's a step forward into grown-up behavior.[1]
