  • Yes, Absolutely it's their right:

    Students should definitely be allowed to date at school. A lot of people consider that school is an institution for learning and education is school's only major objective but I believe they have absolutely got it wrong ( and this is a very common misconception and even schools have it).
    Now why should they be allowed to date:
    -School is an institution majorly for both socialization and learning. Dating is an aspect socialization.
    -The one BIG CONCERN that people have is that dating might affect a person's studies which is absolutely wrong. I believe that until and unless you educate students about how to handle dating with studies this is a problem that will be faced and thus teaching/educating youngsters about how to strike a balance between studies and is the approach we should move forward with.
    -Students get more distracted on games, Videos, Etc. Rather than dating and thus when they start to date they must be given this option by their parents to chose between either one of them.
    -The point where a person is told that he has to either choose love or career is fundamentally flawed because, Why not both together? Why is it that we consider that both the things cannot go hand in hand. And the fact that the person will get a romantic-partner in later life maybe at 20-25 years of age; will his career be fully built? NO. So focusing on the career never ends in life until retirement so it is better if the person has experience and knows how to strike a balance.
    -And lastly, Love doesn't see how old you are, Or whether you are in school or college or office. It is natural and pure which out of one's control because it is not a voluntary action. So to make boundaries and restrictions is absolutely wrong and unjust.

  • Dating makes up the first relationship in teens' life.

    Dating in school is really important as it is the foundation of kids' dating life when they are adults. And as we know, Having a partner in life is really important as they help us to the step of success. It can also reduce depression and sadness in life. So yes, Students should be allowed to date

  • Yes they should

    Yes I think that we should have to allow students to date at school because it can increase happiness and of course it can decrease depression ok and yes they should have to allow students to date at school because of they fall love It’s each Then let them date

  • I agree with dating at school

    You see, I'm a 12-year-old apprentice buinessman. I to this day the only "benefit" I see in school is dating. I strongly support that, I'm also very happy some people disagree because that means you care for the child's education. On the other hand, You do not need to be a Straight-A to be successful. I used to be a Straight-A but it never made me much money. I realized what most of us learn isn't needed. We go to school to get a job to make money, But why not skip the job and school part. You need real skills like dating/high-income skill for you life not some stupid straight A.

    Sorry, This might be a little offensive.
    God loves you, Amen

  • Students love helps with adult dating life

    As a student u learn what girls or boys want in a relationship. Which u can use went love is not just kitten and rainbows. It also helps with popularity in school are respect from other students and friends. There is a lot of reason why students should be aloud to date in school. But not with teachers that is just not right. Thanks for reading. :)

  • Why isn't this allowed?

    Dating in school will increase happiness of students so that they can get better grades by being happier. There should be no separation from this. Why do people like you reading this thinking that it is bad think that. This needs to change right now so you better help our side on this debate.

  • Impossible to enforce

    Students wouldn't date during school hours. And schools should have no say in anything that happens outside of said hours. I fail to see how dating bans are legal now. How do they not qualify as intrusion on personal life? I believe school life, Home life, And social life should all be separate.

  • Everyone needs to have a change

    In my opinion, All students should be allowed to date. It raises there positively and actuated towards others. Infect They can help you with needs such as school homework, Feelings and emotions and personal stuffs. Sometimes some teenagers will feel alone, Of course they have friends and families but they will that something is missing. In love or relationship you’re experimenting with something no, Schools can teach you about the basics but you need to feel it by yourself.

  • Love or alone

    Schools are for study, But also to maka friends, You have a lote of friends, But to find your love is always a form, Only that grab a hand is normal like helping a old woman to cross the road. Only that in school with the person you like, Ok?

  • Yes let them figure it out

    Students don't really know what there talking about so just let them figgure it out them selfs thank you for ready my stuid reason enjoy the rest of your lifes have so much fun you children and adults becuase i ligit and just typing so i can put this up

  • School work is important.

    If a child is dating and are really interested in their boy or girlfriend they are usually in the same class don't get their work done so they get a bad grade and don't get a good job or get into a collage . There for dating in school is not a horrible thing but might affect your life.

  • Love, YES; dating, NO.

    About 80% of the teenagers nowadays still do not know what love is. They just do whatever people do, like hang out every day, buy each others gifts, go to the cinema etc.. This will affect their studies for sure. However, if they are mature enough, they would have understand this. When both sides understand, they can love each other without dating, why not? They care about each others, help each others, solve problems together, couples can do these to be in a relationship! In conclusion, dating is a bad idea, it will affect your study for sure. If you are the kind of person I've mentioned above, go ahead and tell your crush you love him/her and if she understands, you two are in a relationship without dating. Voila!

  • They are not ready for relationships yet.

    School is a place for education, students in school should be focusing on their studies. Relationships in school can be a huge problem because it may be a distraction to the students, people in relationships will always want to please the other, and will spend more time doing that instead of focusing on studies.

  • May jeopardize one's mental health.

    When two people are dating, they often don't last long. In the society we live in today, high school sweethearts have a very low percentage. With happiness comes sadness. Couples are often on a roller coaster ride, with emotions fluctuating, and end up breaking up. This causes a lot of emotional trauma for both, and they don't focus on school, which leads to bad grades and not to mention, a bad future.

  • Dating is a huge distraction

    Schools should have the right to limit physical contact between students for safety as well as to allow the good order and running of the school. School is a place for learning, and dating and relationships are inappropriate in the school grounds. Kids have not yet learned to balance things in their lives, so often when teens get into relationships it consumes them at the cost of everything else.

  • Although this largely depends on an individual's emotional age and level of independence, I believe students generally should not date.

    A 'student' is called a 'student', Because his main purpose is to study, Enjoy a full school experience, Make new friends and discover more about himself in a safe and nurturing environment, Surrounded by mentors such as school teachers and parents.

    I believe that students would be busy hitting the books, And they should be, As it is important for a student to make full use for the opportunities given to him in his youth, In preparation for the future. Some students may struggle juggling academic work, Enrichment programmes and socializing. This makes dating an extra burden - after all, One would have to choose a dating partner out of friends or acquaintances he has socialized with thus far.
    Practically speaking, A student in his teens would not have the emotional maturity to be able to independently choose a dating partner suited for him and be committed and maintain a healthy relationship.

    I acknowledge that there are emotionally capable and highly independent youths who may be able to juggle all these things while keeping up with schoolwork. Dating may also provide youths with a support system apart from parents and friends, And give them the opportunity to discover his love language and learn how to care for another. This may prepare them for more serious relationships as adults.

    However, It is highly impossible that the majority of youths are emotionally capable and independent. They may not even be able to maintain a healthy romantic relationship, Failing to reap the benefits of dating. In worst case scenarios, They may be traumatized from their dating experience.

    Therefore, My view is that students are young and still immature, Hence should not date while going to school.

  • It might make one mentally unstable

    Dating in school affects students in the sense that if the relationship breaks, The opposite sex will be stressed out mentally. This can cause drag back in his/her academic life. You don't need to date before you get to know someone. You can love. Of course, Love is an unexpected and invited guest. But dating, NO!

  • School is for sudying

    Being in a long term relationship should wait until turning 18 & graduate, You should wait until you get a diploma or a GED to start a long term relationship to save money. It's a complete waste of time & money to start long term relationships too soon, You end up going to each others houses and have sex before marriage when you know it's wrong to do it outside of marriage. You should only have sex by wearing a condom, Without it is risky & can result in teen pregnancy at a young age. When going to dances, Just have a dance partner, But don't be in a relationship until after you graduate.

  • The school is for learning not for flirting.

    They should not date in school because the school is an institution for learning, Not for flirting. Ang iba dyan daw si mga bilat kiahang, Gadali, Gakatol gid haw. Lihog pugongpugong kay the school does not teach how to be a prostitute, There is no course in college bs or ab in dating major in flirting minor in pakatol.
