In my opinion, if you're still in high school or below, you are too young to be dating. I'm sorry, that's just how I feel. I'm 26, so, I'm old enough to date but, I do have my problems, where in as I can't date right now. If I tried to, I wouldn't last very long because not only would I be settling, but she would be too. I need to fix my life before I can start dating, but is there a difference between the two?
