May 4, 1. First off, I would just like to say that what I'm about to write will not be directly related to fapping, but instead related to another pressure that every High School student has faced.
I'm sharing this because I strongly believe in what I'm about to write and I believe it can help everyone, specifically the types of people that will get engaged in something such as nofap.
I believe it's good as a learning experience. Wake up every morning with the motivation to be better than the previous day. If you aren't taking your boyfriend or girlfriend's feelings into account or including them in your day to day life, then why are you dating?
Just about everything I read backed up my original thoughts about High School dating. Almost all High Schoolers don't have the maturity that's needed to maintain a healthy relationship, and those who do have that maturity will generally choose not to date. It's because those people that are mature enough to maintain a healthy relationship understand that a relationship is about the other person, therefor, they're not going to go out seeking a relationship.
Now just think about this for a minute: If a relationship is about the other person, but YOU'RE the person that wants to get into a relationship, then it's not about the other person.
It's not always the High Schooler's fault either. As a growing teenager, you naturally have lots of hormones running through your body that are trying to tell you that you want a relationship. On top of this, the social pressure that a High School puts on you is telling you that you want a relationship. It's also possible that peer pressure is telling you that you need a relationship.

High School relationships don't make sense. Because of this, High Schoolers are deceived thinking that they can obtain go here successful relationship in High School. But do they really know what it means? There is a lot of responsibility behind using the word "love".
When talking about "love" you're also talking about life-long decisions. Do you think that you're ready to have your own family? Because if you're not, then you can't "love" properly, which is required for a successful relationship.
I can promise you that you're just lying to yourself. It's a social pressure that you want to fulfill whether you realize it or not.
This post was a bit more of a ramble than I would've liked, but I just hope that at least one person can read this and maybe even just understand High School relationships a little bit better.
If you want more proof, I just urge you to look up High School relationships. An astounding number of people will tell you why High School relationships fail, or are simply a bad idea.
