Do not rush
Some teens tend to rush into a serious relationship, only to rue it later. If you are one of them, watch out. Having a healthy relationship comes with time. Spend a lot of time with your partner and get to know all about him or her. You are too young to be thinking of marriage and kids.
Initiate with group dating
You should start dating in a group, especially if it is your first time. You will enjoy it too, as fun party time. Get yourself comfortable with your guy or gal and only then go on real dates, with parents’ permission of course.
If you think trying to be someone else is going to leave a good impression on your date, get rid of the idea. The best impression that you can make is by being your best self. In other words, you do need to prepare for the occasion and try to be impressive to your date, but do so only by bringing forth your best self.
Do not spoil your grades
Being in love brings all your focus away from your tasks at school, including extracurricular activities. Never compromise on these important aspects of your life for your beloved. There will be a lot of time for falling in love and indulging in romance, but you get only one shot at getting good grades at school.
Do not date on facebook
Social media sites are a convenient tool for sharing your feelings but it lets everyone know about it. You don’t want to share everything with everyone.
It may not be “Love”
You can never be sure whether you are really in love, or it is going to fall apart. More so if you are infatuated and find it bothersome to switch your mind from thinking about your amorous interest to other things.
