If your so young that you have to ask this question, the answer is nothing. What does it mean to be in a committed rlationship = nothing at all!!! At least not this early in tha game.

I’m afraid only time can truly teach you this lesson and unfortunately many feelings are hurt along the process, so the best advice I could share is this: You are young and you should be having as much fun as you possibly can.

MissShiv agony auntFor me, a committed relationship is defined by being physically and emotionally exclusive, though this is my moral standpoint, other peoples could be different. It also means for me, that your partners feelings are pivotal, and you consider them in any dramatic changes to your life.

bubbloo24 agony auntI think everyone has slightly different views on this. I mean, it all means the same but with slightly different views on the term. If that's what you think a committed relationship is then no one will judge you.

This is verified as being by the original poster of the question

i think being in a committed realationship is to be with somebody that u really like(love) and that u wonldnt mind spending the rest of your life with even if u dont you can at least say that i tryed to be in a committed relationship.

i also think being in a committed relationship is...not cheating on the persont that your committed to...always trust them when they tell u something...be there for you throught whatever...and just love u for life even if u break up.

THATS WHAT I THINK BEING IN A COMMITTED RELATIONSHIP!!!

birdynumnums agony auntI sense another question behind this question. No, being in a committed relationship does not mean you have to have sex with your boyfriend. Being in a committed relationship means different things at different ages. At your age, being in a committed relationship means that you care for your boyfriend more than any other boy that you know and that you date him exclusively. You care about his feelings and are concerned about all of the things that he participates in. You share your time together at school and sports events. You enjoy talking about your family and friends together. You refer to each other as boyfriend and girlfriend. You try to fit him into your life as much as possible without neglecting your own grades, your friends and family. You trust each other. You can show each other affection, but should probably wait a few more years until you have sex. It's better to wait until you have a good understanding of contraception and prevention of any sexual diseases. Sex is for making babies, so a good rule of thumb is:

If you are too young to raise a baby together (because it could happen if you have sex...) or if the boy you are dating is not someone who you would ever consider having as the father of your children, then you shouldn't be having sex with him. Don't let a boy talk you into having sex if you would never consider making him your husband. If you did have sex and have a baby, you would be tied to this boy for the rest of your life, through children and grandchildren, whether you remain together or not. So, if you think about it, the decision to have sex is not a simple one, especially for a smart girl who is making decisions about her future. My apologies if I lectured too much about the question that you didn't ask!

kenny agony auntThat you are in a relationship that you really want to work, you love this person & would not do anything to hurt them. Relationships are about give and take, being equal, trusting and respecting each other.

bubbloo24 agony auntIt means that you are totally devoted to your partner and neither of the two people within that relationship would cheat on eachother and will always be truthful to one another. Basically, they would never do anything to hurt the other person in the relationship.
