DEAR CHRISTINE: Is 15 too young to have a serious boyfriend?


Share post:

Dear Christine,
I am a 15-year-old who needs someone to share with, so I am writing to you. I know you may tell me I am too young to be thinking about having a boyfriend, but there is a boy at my school [whom] I really love. I believe he loves me too.
My mother is okay with [my] talking to him, but my father does not think I should be talking to boys at my age and that I should be concentrating on my schoolwork. I am doing relatively well in school right now.
Do you really think that at 15 I am too young to have a serious boyfriend?
Dear Stacy,
I have to admit that I share your father’s sentiments – 15 is too young to have a serious relationship with any member of the opposite sex.
I see no harm in having friends of both sexes at any age, but if you are talking about actually having a boyfriend that you could potentially have an intimate relationship with, I’d say no.
You’re at the age where you should be preparing for your CXC certificates. I believe, therefore, that you should invest your time in studying and choosing a career path. Avoid anything right now that would distract you from doing so – including having a “serious relationship”.
