It is hard to find another person that will match all your goals, dreams, habits, and experiences. After going out once or twice, you should start to develop an idea of what you like and what you don't. If you find what you are looking for, build on the relationship and see where it might lead you.
Rejection for some people is hard to take, especially in a teenage relationship. It means the one person you like doesn't like you as much. This can be devastating to the teenage ego. Being rejected by one's peers is an unfortunate circumstance and you will wish that the earth would open and swallow you at that very moment. The moment will pass and life will go on.
Another problem in a teenage relationship is seeing someone and realizing they are not the one for you. However, they don't realize this. They continue to call and see you at school. You could ignore them and hope they go away and get the message. The best approach is to just be honest and politely let them know you are just not interested in going out with them anymore.
As you continue to develop your relationship, you may find yourself wanting more from each other in terms of time together, talking of getting engaged and married, and even sex. In a teenage relationship, both of the adolescents need to stop and think about how far they are willing to take the relationship. Teenage marriage can be a bad choice to make if you are doing it for the wrong reasons. Is there respect, trust, honesty, good communication, and support available from your future spouse?
Teenage marriage is hard for both parties because of dropping out of school, having to pay bills, getting jobs, and managing a household when you are not really ready to be taking on such tasks. If the girl is pregnant, you may want to think about adoption or finding a sitter during the day so you both can finish school and graduate. If you have supportive parents, then you are way ahead. They can help you prepare for what is down the road and make the best possible choices for yourself.
As it stands in most US states, you have to be eighteen to get married unless you have parental permission. This is hard for some teenagers as they don't want their parents to even know what they are doing. An open honest relationship with your teenager can bring them to you with their many questions. The best thing to do is have the teenagers talk with another couple who married young and ask them to explain what their life is like now. Have them explain their daily routine, how they pay bills, and how much they can spend on frivolous things. This may wake the teenager up and make them realize that this may not be the right time to pursue this idea of marriage just yet. They may reconsider continuing their schooling to get their degree. This will lead to a better job and a better lifestyle.
