I think you're problems with teens dating stems from your lack of dating. Human have been given 2 gifts, a sex drive and the ability to feel love. Now sex drive has already been explained (get laid), however you're understanding of teen love seems to be limited to the old parent's speach, young people can't feel love, just infatuation over someone's appearance. Fact is, in the beginning all things start as infatuation, after all if you're not attracted to someone's appearance the relationship that you start could end up being rather poor and dry. Love and relationships can form afterwards. Love is such a complex and wonderful emotion, hell it even releases endorphins in the youth years (15 to 35).

Does this mean that all teen relationships are deep soulful pools of love and emotion, nope, alot are totaly based on infatuation. However among all these "relationships" there are a few loving couples out there. Most kids overall are relatively shallow creatures with about as much heart as a stone. This is the unfortunate turn that has been going around the wheel of life since our culture (western modern) began. It happens in each major culture, where the youth become more or less deep then the previous generation. In many cultures previous to now that was considered a bad thing, as in to be more emotional than your father or so on. Because that made you weak.

Today we see the reverse, as the youth abandon the laws and reason of their elder's and go on to create their own rules shaping the earth of tommorow and the day after, and the next day.... and the next year... and the next millenia. Is it good or bad? To us (the general previous generation or the exceptions of this generation) it seems bad. To them it seems good, and in the end they will see their mistakes or their genious when the results come to them.

I'll continue going on thinking things are wrong that I think are wrong and I'll be a stubborn bastard and refuse change while others will conform to the new standards. In the end it comes down to whether we are leaders or followers, most of the new generation are selective followers meaning, if you tell them what they want to hear, they'll follow you. But ultimately still folowers.

As to drinking, I may seem like a luny D.A.R.E. lunatic, but I've seen it ruin too many lives to consider teens drinking justified. Hell just about everyperson I've seen pick up a beer has lived a redneck, not going anywhere, be a bum life. Not to say all those who drink are like that, just all those that I know (somewhere in the hundreds)

You pretty much summed up my point there. [QUOTE=Chemix2]Most kids overall are relatively shallow creatures with about as much heart as a stone.

That sums it up.

amoreelitesoldier Here is another small thing that, obviously, irritates me. I don't the last time I heard someone my age call an adult "Sir" or "Ma'am." It's a simple concept to me, just a sign of respect, even if you don't know the person.

That is the one that really bothers me. The complete lack of manners and respect is sad. I live in a wealthy town, as a result most of the people my age expect to have everything handed to them on a platinum platter. Last April when I went on that European trip, some of the kids were actually kicked out of a hotel and restaurant we were staying near because of a complete lack of manners and respect. It took a while for my teachers to convince them to let them stay. Even the simple things such as being on time. When someone asks that you be somewhere at a certain time and you arrive over thirty minutes late and get into an argument because you can't see what is wrong, that is just shameful. I wish they would bring the paddle back...

I agree on most of every thing you said. But teen love well I kinda agree and don't. I agree that most teens do date just to date and date off of looks. Iv seen that so many times. They don't stop and think about dating on what its ment for. Its ment to find your mate for life. Most teens turned dating into something like its a game. Insted of dating off of how they act and what you have in common with each other they date for looks. They gone from one person to another.

lol, I like that concept for it, "hump and dump" For the ones that are serious about their boyfriend/girlfriend, I personally salute you. But, For the record I wish that some people just didn't have boyfriends or girlfriends at all. While girlfriends are usually great to have, I can think of people who should really quit while their ahead. :cort:

Yeah, it amazes me how some people even get into a relationship, considering how stupid, etc they are, while I know good people that are still single.

amoreelitesoldierAs the thread title suggests, I am just tired of today's youth. The teenagers I see today are just a bunch of angry, rebellious punks. I can't stand the "typical" teenager. Just for clarification, here is what I consider a "typical" teenager. 1. 13-17 years old (18 is the legal age) 2. Has little or no respect for parents. 3. Has little or no respect for teachers. 4. Has little or no respect for any authority figures, i.e. the previously listed, law enforcement, etc. 5. Gets bad grades in school and doesn't attempt to improve. 6. Ruins, or is currently ruining, their future by doing stupid things such as drinking alcohol, using drugs/narcotics, getting a girl pregnant (or getting pregnant, for the ladies), etc. 7. Has a carefree, "I'm invincible!" attitude toward life and doesn't seem to care that his decisions made today can, and will, affect him in the future. I am tired of walking through Best Buy and being stared down like I'm a shoplifter, or walking through a sporting goods store and being stared at by all of the "rednecks" (not a bad thing, just stating a "fact") who automatically assume that I'm just a punk teenager that is what I just described. ^ Here is another small thing that, obviously, irritates me. I don't the last time I heard someone my age call an adult "Sir" or "Ma'am." It's a simple concept to me, just a sign of respect, even if you don't know the person. The subject of "teen love" also irritates the heck out of me. I know teens like dating, it's just a little overrated. I guess I could just be jealous that I've only had one girlfriend, and that only lasted a week or less, so it doesn't really count. Time and time again I've seen my friends get all excited about the girl they just asked out, yet time and time again I see the same guy talking crap about the girl he was so hyped up about after they break up. To me, it's just stupid and not worth the hassle. My "theory" is that if my potential girlfriend and marriage aren't on the same page, then why spend the time dating? After all, isn't the point of dating to eventually end in marriage? Well, unless you live in the U.S. then it will sometimes end up with the boyfriend killing/raping/kidnapping his girlfriend. roll%20eyes%20%28sarcastic%29.gif Another problem is that nowadays kids are "falling in love." I mean, what is worse than a 12 or 13 year old girl getting pregnant? It's sickening. I'm done ranting for now, I'll add more later. Thanks for your time. smilie.gif

That's an amazingly blatant generalisation. Believe it or not , some of us actually cae about their girlfriends , instead of wanting sex from day one. I know i shouldn't talk about age because i'm 14 , but you're only 2 years older , so doesn't that include you to the steroetype you just summed up?

i know what you mean.

i find it bothersome when i see a girl with a man and she thinks it is "serious" but he totally isnt into the relationship like she is. or when a girl is clingy and always saying she loves a guy. lord i cant stand that. she shouldnt have to have him affirm his feelings and keep track of him every 5 minutes. it'd push me away in a heart beat.
