  • They can date whenever they want but dating before 16 is just hard. Unless you live in NYC like me haha. Then I guess the subway can get you around.
    I do think that it's hard to really trust kids with dating though. Since it so easy to make mistakes due to lack of forsite. Like having a kid at 13 can really ruin plans for college.

  • The rule for me was I could date once I turned 16. I still haven't. Just haven't found the right guy yet. I think most are probably ready around that age, but some definitely aren't. It depends on the person/people.

    • You're in for a long haul. Guys who started dating around your age are usually Nice Guys. They still haven't dealt with their insecurities and often times than not look for girls to provide some sort of happiness (They be looking for validation).
      Guys who have the mental badassery to find their passions, focus on self improvement, create healthy hobbies, stay fit find validation from their actions and accomplishments *Cough* 21feminist *Cough* are gonna be hard to find.

    • @21feminist

      please stop you sound like MGTOW
      very stupid

      the best time to date is around her age
      the best time to fall in love is around her age

      cause once you get older its gonna be hard to love

  • When they're mentally and emotionally prepared for it and when they're mature enough to know how to handle a relationship and how they have to be treated in one.
    So definitely after 18

  • It really depends. I consider any younger than 17 playing at love. Don't get me wrong, I have been in love with the guy I am with now since I was 12-13. But if we had dated when I was that old, I would consider it playing at love because we were not fully old enough to know the struggles of life. 17, you're a senior in high school. Bout to go to college and now you get to adult so dating can be viewed seriously.

  • I'd say when you have yer own wheels and place of yer own to take yer date at the end of the night to have those long meaningful conversations without Mon and dad hanging over yer shoulder and you pay for yer own stuff with the money from yer own hard work

  • You can date earlier but they hardly ever work because you're immature at that time. I've had experience. So I'd say best tine to start dating is 19+ .

  • I would say enjoy your freedom.
    I hate the feeling of being stuck, always having to take your boyfriend with you and always having to make time for them.
    I will wait till I finish my school, so around 21.

    • But date whenever you like to date.
      Date when you feel ready for it.

  • With my girls, I'm thinking 37. But I would like grandchildren, so maybe 25? :)

    Seriously, any of those ages would have been OK, but I'd hope they'd avoid sex until they were sure.

  • I started around the age of 13... my friend, she started at 16. I'm 22 and she's 21, and our past relationships combined total to 14.
    My opinion is, if you can endure the pain of a breakup, the hardships in a relationship, until you find "the right one". It's really up to the person to decide.

  • You need to gain as much experience as possible. So why not start dating at fourteen?

  • When you should start dating? Then u must know the answer, it depends , on ur cash in hand , (for the gifts, movies etc) and the mental state to accept the relationship and nurture it

  • I would say around 16 is a good age. Not necessarily dating for marriage but casually dating and learning how to interact one on one with the gender of your affections.

  • I think kids should wait until they older. I waited until I had grown up before dating. I didn't have my first date until I was 391.

    • To all the down voters: so you have no problem with 15-16 yr old hooking up and having open sex like animals, but when I change the number, you go start having problems?

  • Anyone that’s mentally mature enough, so probably around 20 years or older, from what I observed.
