And I’m not saying that having a boyfriend or girlfriend in high school is wrong. What’s WRONG is allowing your worth, your appearance, your modesty, your actions, and your choices to be defined by the process of finding and acquiring “the one.” So…here are 10 reasons you don’t NEED a boyfriend (or girlfriend) in high school. And the right person will see that in you without you having to dress, act, or pretend to be someone you’re not. Because their worth is determined by how “wanted” they are.

Although researchers have directed their efforts toward a better understanding of the dynamics of dating and partner selection, focusing upon the influence of such elements as the family environment (e.g., parental divorce, parental marital quality, parent-child relationships), peer relationships, and community factors (Bryant and Conger ), the majority of studies focusing upon dating and romantic relationships have utilized samples of Western youth.
