That's why I think you got the short end of the stick in your situation.3 months wasted on a guy who's not looking for what you are.Even if your son is mooning over a certain girl, most 12-year-olds aren’t really ready for the one-on-one interaction of a true relationship.For eighth-graders, dating likely means lots of time spent texting or talking on the phone, sharing images on social media, and hanging out in groups.Some kids may have progressed to hand-holding as well.In high school, strong romantic attachments can be formed and things can get serious, fast.
The preteen and teen years aren’t easy on you or your child.
I find it...logic to me.is it like "hey ok you and me we are gona behave like bf/gf but only for 6 months.a contract thingy"???? Casual dating is also the period of time before you decide to be exclusive at least to me but it doesn't have to be. To me, I had always thought it meant just hanging out, not screwing around, necessarily, but just taking it slow.
The purpose can be simply enjoying each other's company. Months later I find out she's having "Not serious" relationships right now, meaning sex buddies (to her).
When your child mentions dating, or a girlfriend or boyfriend, try to get an idea of what those concepts mean to them.
Take note of how your child reacts when you discuss dating.
