Nothing is less attractive to the opposite sex than a person with no confidence, hobby or personality of their own.Young relationships always are so great in the beginning, but it always seems to end up with a lot of fighting and bickering.Why spend all of that time fighting with someone, when you can be productive doing something and being happy? However, because we are young we are always going to be on the look-out for someone of the opposite sex that makes us happy.Get out there and meet people and be able to have something to bring to the conversation.

High schools are full of rumors and drama - don't get sucked into arguments caused by something a friend of a friend might have seen.

No one wants to be known as the 'dramatic couple that has epic battles by the soda machines every Tuesday.' It is really hard to keep up your grades and the respect of your classmates and teachers when you bring your relationship problems to class with you.

It is so easy to become so engulfed in a significant other that friends just don't seem as fulfilling anymore.
This will also scare away any other potential partners for the future. If you keep agendas hidden from them or refuse to let them meet the person you're dating, it will be a lot more difficult for you in the long run to have a good relationship on either end. However, friends keep you sane when your partner is driving you crazy. While you can't avoid your friends, you can't include them in every aspect of your relationship.
