They are genuine sentiments, and in their context, they are among the most powerful feelings you will ever experience. They are not mature sentiments, though, since middle schoolers lack the life experience to put such feelings into context. And I'm not even talking about general life experience. I'm referring to your life experience. Are you more than just a kid? Have you made some serious mistakes? If so, then you know how intense these feelings can be, and you should try to understand them instead of dismissing them as "babyish."
In addition, middle schoolers are in a constant state of change. Your feelings for someone may fluctuate throughout your relationship. You may feel differently about them at different times during your middle school years.
Finally, middle school relationships are rarely based on long-term thinking. You don't have time to get to know someone properly because you're too busy with school, sports, jobs, etc. Although this type of relationship isn't considered "wrong," it doesn't give either party much room for growth.
In conclusion, yes, there are mature feelings in a middle school relationship, but they aren't necessarily good feelings.
Children develop a feeling of self-esteem and distinctiveness during middle childhood by comparing themselves to their classmates. They come to anticipate to succeed or fail at certain things. They may acquire an accomplishment orientation that may shape their approach to school and other problems for many years. Children also learn from experience, and those who have successful experiences tend to feel better about themselves.
During this period, children's feelings of self-esteem are influenced by how they compare with their classmates. If they think they are not as good-looking or smart as most of their friends, for example, then they will likely feel less than perfect. On the other hand, if they notice that some of their friends seem to be performing better than others, even if it is only in games of soccer, then they too can develop a sense of self-esteem.
In addition to physical appearance and performance, children's feelings of self-esteem are affected by such factors as gender, race, social class, and ability level. Boys often feel worse about themselves after losing a game, for example, but this is because their egoism tends to make them think they should be able to beat anyone at anything. Girls, on the other hand, tend to feel bad after losing a game because they does not want to appear stupid or unable to take care of themselves.
It made me question what "dating" meant to middle schoolers and if it's a good idea at that age. Adolescents between the ages of 12 and 15 may be the most baffling and aggravating individuals on the world, as many parents are aware. One minute they are content with life, the next they despise it. They are insecure about their appearance, but at the same time they crave attention and admiration from others. In other words, they are a bundle of contradictions - just like young adults!
Middle school dating is not the same as high school dating. Middle schoolers are still developing as people, so their interactions with each other tend to be short-lived and meaningless. They might spend hours on Facebook or Tumblr, for example, because that's all that matters to them. Social media has turned young people into celebrities, and they want everyone to know what they think of things or how their day was. It's hard to imagine anyone interested in hearing about their daily struggles at this age!
Middle school dating is also different from elementary school dating. Unlike fourth-, fifth-, and sixth-graders, who are just beginning to learn about gender roles and sexuality, seventh-, eighth-, and ninth-graders understand what relationships are supposed to look like. They know right from wrong and would never consider sleeping with someone without first being in love with them.
