Junior dating freshman high school
For them, a relationship at some point becomes more important than purity.Because of that phenomenon, in schools with more boys than girls, the girls hold more cards and have less sex.A tamer version of that observation is borne out in the economists' work among high schoolers.Unsurprisingly, the majority of high school boys want to have sex (though only 47.6 percent of freshmen boys do).
Of course, all this raises a question that has long bedeviled scores of Y. novelists, not to mention millions of teenagers: In high school, how exactly does one define a "relationship"?Rather sweetly, the Add Health study considers two a pair when they hold hands, kiss, and say "I love you."
