Deciding to Date Not everyone dates. Some teens choose not to date because they’re shy around persons of the opposite gender. Others may choose not to date because they have other interests or time com- mitments. Still others may not date because of family traditions or values. Everyone is unique. There’s no reason to let anyone pressure you into dating if you’re not ready for it. As a way of easing into dating, many teens go out with groups of friends of both genders. Being part of a group allows teens to develop and practice their social skills without having the pressure of focusing on only one person. Going out in a group takes some of the attention away from the individual, helping him or her relax and feel less self-conscious. Group dates or double dates can also relieve the pressure of being alone with someone new. What Are the Benefits of Group Dating and Individual Dating? There are benefits to both group dating and individual dating. What are your thoughts on these dating situations? Here are two viewpoints. Viewpoint 1: Daphne L., age 15 I think group dating is the best choice for teens who are just beginning to date. Dating for the first time can be nerve-racking. It helps when you have the support of other friends. Going out on group dates makes the situation more comfortable and helps teens get used to dating. It’s also a lot of fun. Viewpoint 2: Ted R., age 16 Yeah, group dates can be fun, but it’s hard to get to know a person better when you are surrounded by other friends. Going out in a group may make it seem less like a date. To really get comfortable with dating relationships, people need to go on individual dates. It’s important to learn to communicate on a one-on-one basis with your date. What do you think about group dating and individual dating? What other issues should teens consider before they start dating? Summarize your views in a one-page essay.

What to Do on a Date What you decide to do on a date depends on the person you are with and your common interests. If you don’t know the person well, a movie might be a good choice. Going out to dinner or to a school dance are also good options. You might also try attending a sports event such as a baseball or basketball game. When you get to know each other and have a better idea of your interests, you will probably find activities that both you and your date enjoy.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
