WATCH: Tweens talk dating in 7th grade

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - Middle school can be rough. It's filled with lunchtime drama, recess, and some homework. So who has time to add the pressures of dating to all that stress?

Certainly not these kids, who are wise beyond their years!

The Atlantic recently posted a video of tweens answering questions about dating in the 7th grade - and it is sure to make you smile. 

Reasons for not having time to date ranged from sports, and friends, to planning an upcoming bar mitzvah. 

"That kind of pressure, I don't really need it in my life right now," one kid says. 

PREACH, kid, preach. 


We asked tweens about what dating is like in the seventh grade.
