I have none yet, but there have been plenty of discussions like this with my girlfriend regarding things this way.
I would probably limit my son to dating until he was around 13, but that doesn't mean limiting him from having a girlfriend, just acting on it, if you know what I mean. He wouldn't be allowed to fully spend time with her such as taking her out to movies without adults or spending massive amounts of time with her in his bedroom and such, but I wouldn't restrict him at any age having a closer than normal relationship with a girl.
A daughter I would be a little more protective over, and probably do the typical dad screen process where before it is ever fully official (in my eyes) I would have to meet them, have dinner with them and ask them questions. Id like it to be around the age of 16 at least, before they started dating to the fullest, simply so she is a little bit more aware of dangers such as sex, drugs and pregnancy, and can defend against them a little better. Like with a son, I wouldn't mind her having closer than normal male friends, but I would keep a closer eye on those and how they are developing than that of my sons female friends.
The matters between a girl and a boy because a boy is a robust muscle head, more or less. He can smash through relationships and is in very little danger of being raped, molested and made pregnant (lol.)
The daughter would be more emotional and definitely more fragile, possibly falling into a relationship she thought was going to be the best thing ever and ending up being used for sex or pregnant, so I would want to defend against that.
Something like that anyway. Interesting question. :) I hope I answered it right.0
