CBSE Class 9 Book Discusses Dating and Relationships; Tinder India Reacts |


NEW DELHI: Even in today’s times, many children in India feel uncomfortable discussing topics such as first love and romance with their parents. Instead, they often seek advice from the internet or friends, which may not always be accurate. Taking a progressive measure, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has introduced Value Education books for Class 9 students.
The book seeks to shed light on chapters and topics like dating & relationships, as well as cyberbullying, catfishing and ghosting. The book has also addressed subjects such as crushes and ‘special’ friendships, elucidating these terms with simple examples.
Taking to social networking site X (formerly Twitter), several users reacted to the CBSE Class 9 chapters. While some appreciated the move, others seem surprised and in doubt if it was real. One such user on X wrote, “Is this for real?”
An X user @nashpatee shared images of the chapter on Dating & Relationships and wrote, “9th class textbooks nowadays.”

Another user on X welcomed the move and posted, “CBSE Class 9 textbooks to have chapters on dating and relationships. Good move. These days, most kids around that age do end up dating. Smartness lies in educating them about this & safe intercourse instead of being in denial about this.”

Another X user wrote, “CBSE textbook of class 9. I feel too old.”

Another user posted, “The recent addition of a chapter in class 9th textbook on dating and relationships by #CBSE has caused some concerns. While the intention behind this move may be good, any topic added to the curriculum must be widely accepted and understood by society.”

Elaborating the positive side of it, one user wrote, “CBSE Class 9 Book Has Chapters On Dating And Relationships. So? What’s Wrong In It? Teens are already navigating relationships, often through confusing online sources, including but not limited to insta reels and web series. The chapters offer structured information that helps them understand consent, navigate emotions, & avoid online dangers. Talking openly about healthy relationships is better than leaving teens in the dark.”

Surprisingly, joining the comment section of the post by @nashpatee was Tinder India that commented “next chapter: how to deal with breakups.”
