What age did you start dating?

I've had crushes since I was as young as 10 ^^ and I had my first date at 14 with a guy I had been friends with for a long time

How about everyone else?

Most Helpful Girl

  • I'm 22 years old and I have not dated anyone. So, I wouldn't know whether I'll be dating before or after 25 years old. I, however, have some critiques about your question:

    1) The distribution of the age for the poll choices are unequal and highly skewed. You accumulated 4-5 years of age group within choice D, whilst only allowing 1 year of age group in choice C.

    2) Meaning of dating not clearly defined.

    3) There's no option for people under 25 who have not dated.

    I wish the question was a bit well-structured. Otherwise it would have been a great question!

    • 1. Umm the age ranges I gave are the ones that experts use

      2. Depends on what the answerer thinks

      3. You can only have 5 results

    • Sorry what is the purpose of the expert conducting this experiment? By expert do you mean proper researcher or who?

    • Under 13 = Pre-teen years

      13-15 = Early teens

      16-17 = You are considered a young adult

      18-24 = Years where you have fun

      24+ = Years where you fully learn who you are and are ready to get serious with your life

What Guys Said 13

  • My first date I went to see Blair Witch Project (July 1999, so I was 20), with a girl who had just moved from Edmonton to my city, although her place was a fair distance from mine.. Actually that was the second date, first was at the beach. Although I must admit, she insisted it was not a date. Regardless actual dates soon followed, with different girls that is, after I burned out with the Albertan.

    • For the record I should also point when I stopped dating. Last real date was 2001, last time I went anywhere with a girl was 2004 I think.

  • It depends on what qualifies as a date. I used to go off to be alone with girls I liked when I was 11 through 13, but it obviously didn't have the same meaning as a serious date. A girl asked me out when I was 14, and we had our fathers drive us to a bookstore and hoped they'd go off to talk about historical fiction together while we had frilly woman's coffee together. I would consider that a date because we did have feelings for each other.

    If that criteria doesn't count, my first date where intercourse was a possibility occurred when I was 18.

  • I was 9 when I started seeing Kathleen but we probably never even held hands. We just had a good time together. Mind you when we went on "dates" we went by bicycle.

    I was 17 the first time I started dating and kissed her.

    I was 23 when I lost my virginity on a date.

    I was about 25 when I first dated a guy

    And when I first kissed a guy (and I liked it)

  • 25, have never dated.

    Most people I'd imagine won't do it until after university, there's just no point to dating in school/university where you are constantly surrounded by eligable potential partners.

    • Why don't you consider them real dates?

    • To me a date would be if we went out to a movie, dinner or something similar formally. Besides I graduated when barely l16. The only date I had was a homecoming game. Didn't even experience prom. Yup a real dork I know :0

  • D: 18-24, I just turned 42 and I had my first date this past Saturday! =D

  • Had my first proper boyfriend at 16 and it recently ended.

    I think 16-17 is a good time though.

    I just feel 13 is a bit too young, or perhaps I'm wrong? :P
