As someone who decided she could date at the ripe old age of 14...16 is a good age to start dating. 18 is even better. You can't do anything under 16. Where are you going to go? How are you going to get there? You cannot have a job so your parents will pay for your date. You cannot drive so your parents will drive you on your date. How embarrassing is that? VERY.
At 16 you can drive and work. Yay. But you have no money and you can't get in anywhere super cool. And you have to abide by the state restrictions on driving hours. At 18 you're an adult and you can do whatever the heck you want when, where, and with whomever you want.
