im just wondering because everywhere I look on GAG there are girls who are young from like ages 13-18 asking if its nomal that they haven't started dating yet or haven't kissed a guy yet.
I think its messed up that our society now has that presssure on girls that they need to start dating really young. I'm 17 and I believe that somewhat.
what are your views on it?

I think there are issues with guys in particular in our society... which results in younger girls feeling sad that they're not dating yet. Guys tend to be more competitive, and see women as a market to them. So they have to have more girls under their belt by a certain grade or age in their life. And in return, girls see the other girls that are getting "used" and are dating and feel upset (not really noticing the "used aspect, just the dating aspect), and want to make themselves available on this "market." It used to be just a high school or late middle school thing, but now its like... 6th grade. I remember in middle school, seeing like... maaaaybe 5 couples. And they were all pretty serious too.
But to answer your question though, yeah, I think society puts a lot of pressure on dating early and stuff, but I think a lot of it is hype and commercialism from guys making it seem like they need to date early.2
