Younger girls (14 to 20) or parents of such a girl
I have a son who is coming up on 14 very shortly. He has a few girls that like him (they are rather obvious about it). My wife and I are helping him to have good, healthy relationships with girls.
What types of 'dates' have you younger girls been on? Chaperoned with parents or possibly older siblings? Or were you allowed to go on regular dates already? Perhaps group dates with a bunch of you? Or are your parents considering your still too young for this just yet?
Parents of younger girls - have you allowed your daughter on such dates? What types of dates? What did qualities of the younger guy did you expect? Must walk her to the door? Meet you? Anything you wouldn't accept? (baggy pants, body piercings)

I would say by age 16 they should be allowed to go on regular dates. Having your parents chaperon a date at 20 would be highly awkward, at that age he should be able to make adult decisions for himself. What you can do is just guide him on how to property treat the girls that he dates and to make smart decisions. Trying to control him too much might make him rebel. He's only 14 so I would think he would probably just go to a movie or something like that with a girl. That's pretty much what people that age do. If you wanted to, you could chaperon the date, I would assume that either you or the other girl's parents would be driving them wherever they are going. You can go with them, but maybe give them some space to have their own private date. If it's at a movie, sit a few rows back.
Just for the record, I'm 21 and my parents had little to no control over my dates. I didn't date though until I was 18 (not many guys, I use to live in a small town). But I turned out fine, not promiscuous and am very responsible.1
