Introduction

‘Relationship’ is defined as an enduring

association between two persons (Reis, 2001). Having

a relationship in school is not new nowadays, some

students who are in a relationship think that it can

motivate them to study more because in this stage they

have this called ‘Goals’ they want a better future so

some students who are in a relationship is pursuing

more in academics, but in the other side not all has a

that kind of mindset because having in a relationship

while studying can might be ruined their academics

because of some circumstances such like lovers

quarrel, early pregnancy and many more.

In thinking about the different types of

relationships, it is important to realize that you can

have an intimate relationship with anyone. An intimate

relationship is one in which you can truly be yourself

with someone who you respect and are respected by in

return. It is an emotional connection that can also be

romantic or sexual relationship.

The Effects of Romantic Relationships on the

Academic Performance of University of the Philippine –

Cebu College Students

During adolescence, teens become interested and involved in

dating because of the desire to belong with others. As a

result, it is clear that over the time, romantic

relationships gain in importance. Adolescents crave to have

an intimate romantic relationship to which love is given

and received without restriction.

It is according to the need to belong theory by which

individuals have the determination to connect with others

in enduring, close relationships.

Furthermore, the theory states that humans “share”the same

need to be a part or connected with other individuals, and

claims that all individuals may live life better if they

are connected. Myers (2010) supported the need to belong

theory by asserting that people who find a person

complimenting their needs to whom they can share their

problems with, makes those people more acknowledgeable.

Belongingness is supported by close, intimate relationship

which tends to be healthier and happier.

Because of this need to belong, we can see nowadays that

most university students are synchronizing their time in

both academic and romantic aspect. Engaging themselves in

this romantic relationship enables them to feel that

someone cares for them, shows affection to them, loves

them, etc. In fact, Furman (2002) reported that romantic

relationships become more and more significant to

adolescents in their social world as they also develop from

puberty towards late adolescence in which it shows how

prevalent is romantic relationship among adolescents.

TEEN RELATIONSHIP

This study used the propensity score method to investigate

the effects of early teenage relationships on academic

performance to high school students. Frequent dating

behaviors and early sexual experiences showed significant

negative impacts on both academic outcomes; moderate dating

activities had an estimated positive impact. Implications

from this study may help inform educators and families in

developing appropriate policies and educational

conversations to guide youth toward a moderate, timely

manner of dating. Humans, particularly adolescents get

involve in romantic relationships with variety of reasons.

According to Aristotle, humans are “social animals” which

made them long to form an intimate relationship in which

love can be given and received freely which the

psychologists called “the need to belong”

(Myers, 2010). Rest assured of the love and care given by

the persons close to them, they are secured with the trust

and confidence that they are acceptable to individuals whom

they can depend on for the satisfaction of their needs.

Raman (2010) stated that being in romantic relationship

involves physical contact which causes chemical arousal to

the persons involved and at the same time gain love and

confidence in which they are longing for. (Koob & Bloom

1982) also explained this by stating that the individuals

who are in love release a number of chemicals within the

brain such as oxytocin, vasopressin and endorphins which

cause “short-term” joy and pleasure. On the other hand,

According to Arnet (as cited in Fincham& Cui, 2011) "late

adolescents" is the stage where teenagers experienced how

to be totally and socially independent. This is the time

for curiosity & explorations in choosing and having a

partner, and explores this kind of curiosity that somehow

leads to romantic relationship. However, this kind of

relationship may not lead to a pleasant and intense love

affair. This is just a result of their inquisitive mind and

a sort of finding on how to fit into the world.

“What is life all about?” Questions such as these assume

special significance during teenage years, as adolescents

seek to find their place in broader and social world. This

quest takes adolescents along several routes. Luqman (2009)

said that an adolescent relationship plays an important

LIBERAL ARTS

role to adolescents as it develops the ability for

committed relationships. Additionally, Pelt(2004) stated

that those relationships help develop personality. She also

added that it is a way of knowing one’s unique qualities of

opposite sex and at the same time choosing the right life

partner. Moreover, researchers theorized that romantic

relationship is essential to the development of adolescents

in different aspects such as

“transformation of family relationships, close

relationships with peers, sexuality, and career

planning”(Furman,2002). According to Lucas & Curpuz (2007),

“quality

personal relationships that provide stability, trust, and

caring such as romantic relationships can increase

learners’

sense of belonging, self-respect and self- acceptance, and

provide a positive climate for

learning”

(p. 16) and thus increase academic performance. According

to the theory of incentive approach of motivation, the

desirable properties of external stimuli

whether grades, money, affection, food, or sex

account for

person’s

motivation. Moreover, theorists suggested that romantic

relationship has a great role in the academic performance

of adolescents.

Vgotsky’s

theory states that social interaction plays a very

important role in the cognitive development of an

individual and could not be understood without looking into

the social and cultural context. Furthermore,

Vygotsky’s

ideas about

“cognitive

development”

have become major influences in psychology and education

today (Lucas & Corpuz, 2007). Theorists suggested that

romantic relationship has a great role in the academic

performance of adolescents. Parents, peers, and partners,

on the other hand, cooperate, collaborate and enrich the

learning experience (Lucas &Corpuz, 2007). In this way,

adolescents who are more knowledgeable can help in the

cognitive development of their partner. In another way,

romantic relationship gives more negative effects on the

academic performance of adolescents. Teens nowadays

consider romantic relationship as the number one source of

stress (Manning et al., 2009). It results from the break-

ups or conflicts with partner. Even those who give more

importance on academics, spending time with

one’s

partner may also serve as a distraction. Myers (2010) also

said that: For university students, relationships consume

much of life. How much of your waking life is spent talking

with people? One sampling of 10,000 tape recordings of

half-minute slices of

students’

waking hours (using belt-worn recorders) found them

talking to someone 28% of the time

and that

doesn’t

count the time they spent to someone (Mehl&Pennebaker,

2003). In 2008, the average American 13-17 year-old sent or

received 1742 text messages per month (pp. 393-394)

(Furman, 2002) Young people spend a great deal of time

thinking about, talking about, and being in romantic

relationships, yet adults typically dismiss teenage dating

relationships as superficial. Young people do not agree:

half of all teens report having been in a dating

relationship and nearly one-third of all teens said they

have been in a serious relationship. Although most

adolescent relationships last for only a few weeks or

months, these early relationships play a pivotal role in

the lives of the teens and are important to developing the

capacity for long-term, committed relationships in

adulthood. (Teenage Research Unlimited, 2006) (Barber &

Eccles, 2003) The quality of adolescent romantic

relationships can have long lasting effects on self-esteem

and shape personal values regarding romance, intimate

relationships, and sexuality. This article discusses the

importance of romantic relationships to youth and youth

development, including the benefits of healthy

relationships, the risks romantic relationships may

pose to adolescents, and the need for adults to support

young people in developing healthy relationships.
