At what age did your parents allow you to date?
And how did they feel about it at first?

Mine didn't ecavtly say because I never inquired, but I'm certain that they wouldn't have allowed me to date before I was 16.

I've crazy parents who don't allow us to date haha. My brother is 32 and still single. My eldest sister is 35 and also single. She suffered from depression due to them being overstrict with her. This is the reason why I get out from the house 2 years ago. Now I am free to date :)

They never cared what I did/where I went after the age of 10.
16, they were really conservative
Glad I moved out early lol love them tho ofc
Never really had any limitations. All my father said once was something like "Be careful, be safe and treat the girls good."
I started at 11 tho they've never known
My parents never actually put an age i could date whoever i wanted at any age. I actually had a girlfriend in kinder garden
My mom didn't want me to date until I was 18, obviously that wasn't happening though.
I dont need to be allowed by my parents for have a relationship.

They never set an age for me because I was never much interested in dating. I was quite happy being alone, so I never actively sought out a boyfriend. Thus, I was 23 by the time one found me and my parents were more than happy.
I told my mum around 17, it wasn't really "allowed" but I also was not-not allowed.
I never really had a set age to start dating.
they never had a choice in it. I started dating when I was ready to and they accepted that just made sure I was safe
Well I chose not to date til I was 15/16 so they didn't mind either way
Going out all alone with a guy? Like 18
They never set a certain age, and I didn't date anyone until I was 18. They didn't care by then apparently.
No one wanted to date me until I was 18 so it never came up.
they said 18 but my heart had different plans 😉
Never got express permission. But started as soon as I moved out at 18/19
My mom has never cared, mostly because I never get asked out.
They didn't really set an age. I started when I was 15.
