I think the age is so varied and i think this can be true just by going to weddings.
1. You get some couples who get married much younger (in their mid 20's) because they were childhood sweethearts and therefore they took their dating very seriously at a much younger age.
2. Then you have people who get married in their 30's and this tends to be those who had a fun in their younger years and casually dated with no real serious commitment (although there are some who were plain unlucky in finding the one). ie they decided to take dating more seriously when they were about to hit their 30's... perhaps realising they need to settle down (or in womens case the bodyclock is ticking)
3. Something that is becoming more common now is people getting maried in their 40's. These people tend to want to enjoy their youth for aslong as they could and didn't really take dating seriously untill much later in life. They also tend to not want children so that alarm button in point 2 (ie people getting married in their 30's) never got touched.
For me I always wanted a serious relationship. Didn't have a serious interest in someone until I was 14 (young, I know) and that interest prevented me from dating seriously in high school. Until I started dating that interest when I was 18.
For me that started when I was like 15? I've always wanted a serious relationship, I didn't want to ever casually date. Plus, I don't think casual dating is really that huge a thing in England? We have relationships that are more casual than others obviously but there's no real dating process, you get asked out, decide whether you like them or not and then you're kinda... A thing. At least that's what I've gathered from mine and others' relationships. But yeah, I got in a serious relationship at 15 and am still in it 4 years later, so... Any age?
I didn't start caring until after high school. I was 19 and was interested in this guy at work. Before that, I went out with guys, but we always hung out in groups. Never really had a relationship until I was 19, aside from one that lasted a choke weeks when I was 12...
It's not that I'll look for a serious relationship. When I'm dating it just turns into one. Even the one time I made up my mind I was going to casually date and just see where it goes. Bam! I'm 7 months in and there is hints of marriage in the future haha. Not that I mind but I think some can only get into serious relationships.
For me it was 2, 3 years ago, so after 30? I never wanted to get into a real relationship because I felt that it would prevent me from doing the things I wanted, having a career, traveling the world, etc. I still think the same, but I don't care as much about those things as I did before. It was before I actually fell in love with a decent guy, haha.
I'm only 14 at the moment, and you may consider my opinion biased, but I have always found dating a serious thing and I believe that you shouldn't date anyone unless you truly do have something with them and you're sure of it. A lot of people just date people at my age to be able to say that they had a boyfriend or their first kiss. I'm different. I never dated anyone or kissed anyone and it's because I feel as though you should only date someone if you truly feel something for them. What if the person you're dating actually does like you, and you're just playing them to be able to say you dated someone? No. I believe that when I meet the right person and the feelings are mutual and that I actually feel someone, I will date them. So I guess you can say, I'm 14 and I take dating seriously, but many my age do not, as sad as it sounds.
I don't think there is a certain age. I know young men in their late teens and early teens who want a serious relationships and I have met guy friend in their early 30s and late 40s who do not want anything serious
I think it is a function of maturity and not age. When you no longer get a thrill from going to parties every Friday and Saturday night, when you avoid drinking too much so you won't get a hangover, when you are more excited about spending time with a girl who you already know than the idea of meeting someone new. . . then you are probably ready to be serious about dating.
I don't think age matter, whenever we mature we start being serious. A 18 year old can be mature and a 28 can still battle matureness so there is not point in saying an exact age. I'm 20 and never had a relationship and I'm mature enough to wait for a true person that I can marry and thats it. Some men think they want to fool around first and then marry but its just there way of comitting.
It depends on each person. Many would want to start during college, but many others would rather wait after college. I personally wouldn't mind dating seriously at my current age. Though right now I just wanna be alone, as some sort of break, I think I'm starting to get tired of hookups, I don't know, maybe it's just a phase and in a month I wanna go back to the "casual" life. But if I find the right girl, I won't say no.
I hoped to find my future spouse by 16. I thought it might be realistic to find her at 18, cause that's when my parents started dating. I mean, I still have 4 months, but my crush (biggest crush of my life) is gonna be going to college across the country so...
I cared when i was like 11, because i was emotionally mature by that age. It really depends on the person but i would say on average around 22 for males and 23 for girls... but I don't know haven't known many girls who are serious aside from the stupid tumblr teenies.
I don't think it's based on ag but your mindset and personality. I think I'm not ever gonna have a serious relationship. My mind isn't capible of giving my everything to another human being. Being together with someone is something I do not crave or want. I need my space. I'm an introvert and realized that just recently.
All I need is my family and friends cause they know there are boundries that you can't cross as family and friends.
Or maybe I'm just scared of showing someone who I truly am. Nevertheless serious relationships are something I'm good living without.
As soon as I started dating, I was looking for a serious relationship, and I started dating around a month into 10th grade of High School, which is what grade I'm in, although my first girlfriend broke up with me, and I'm hoping that doesn't happen with my current girlfriend
Well I haven't ever been on a date, and I was always shy and frigid around girls when I was younger. But now I want a relationship no-one seems to want me back. 😅 I've tried online dating and it just doesn't work.
around my age, i'm turning 23 in a few months and have yet to have a serious girlfriend. around now, i find myself in deep regret about all the girls i "had" who were so right for me, but let them get away because i simply wasn't looking for anything.
