Dating talking stage

A teen’s social media can reveal the true morals and values of a person that otherwise would have never been known.Additionally, social media platforms contribute to the development of “things”.You will keep getting your feelings hurt if you don't tell him what you want. Contrary to the shift in relationships for the current generation, it still takes the same amount of time to get into a definite relationship.In an article from the Huffington Post, the new “stages” of dating starts with two people. The Huffington Post describes this stage as when “the two people involved have some romantic affiliation, but both still identify as single.

Posting everything about your life is not always a good thing however.

According to, "Couples usually wait until six to eight dates before they are willing to enter into an exclusive relationship.” (Photo courtesy of Cayley Kennedy).

The years teens spend in high school are typically engulfed by drama over friends, enemies, boyfriends and girlfriends.

Since teens are able to talk to multiple people at a time, they can be semi “serious” with more than just one person. This shift of relationships has caused the current generation to grow up relying on social media to keep their relationships in tact.

Looking at the long term consequences, the heavy reliance on social media will most likely make it difficult for today’s teens to develop the same intimate relationships built from “old-school” socialization.
