Did Having A Boyfriend In Middle School Ruin Your Life?

New research finds that middle school puppy love may spell out doom for our futures.

I don't know if I'm buying into this. After all, I turned out alright. No criminal charges on my record, no plummeting GPA, no rehab history. I think it's unfair to say that the downward spiral of one person (because according to these findings, you apparently turn out to be a hot mess) can be solely backtracked to a moment in his/her dating history. 

Isn't middle school dating something most of us do? And isn't it true that the majority of us turn out A-OK? For most grade school kids, "dating" really means trading Disney Princess/Spiderman classroom cards on Valentines Day, supervised play dates and if things get really risqué (insert eyeroll here) "getting married" on the playground. Is that really so harmful?

 

Either way, I guess I'm glad that I'm on the better side of this statistic.

What do you think? Do you think your middle school date had an influence on your future?
