I've been dating my boyfriend for almost 8 months, I'm 16. My parents dont approve of me dating even though I feel old enough too. What age do you think is the best to date, and what argument should I make to prove to them I can handle a relationship?

I think 15 is a good age, though I probably wouldn't prohibit them from dating younger, given how I started when I was 11. But I wouldn't be too happy if they dated that young.0

My parents made me wait til 18 by that time I didn't even want to date and I still don't want to. I see no purpose in doing so and it seems like a headache that I wouldn't want to be going through while I'm trying to focus on school. I was always a person who never liked to put energy into something that would most likely not work out. Most highschool relationships don't last, some do though. My sister and her boyfriend have been together for 2 years. I'm happy for them, but at the time I wasn't willing to take the risk. I would also say don't sneak behind their backs because my sister did the same thing and it caused so much drama in her life she started getting low grades and made a 18 on the ACT. She still went to college, but shortly dropped out because she wasn't sure what she wanted to do. I say focus on yourself, get your life together, start thinking and preparing for the future. Boys come and go, there's no rush. So many girls at my cousins highschool were focused on dating and now the majority of them are pregnant and not doing anything with their lives.0
