What is a good age for me to start dating?

Report as

....there is no "good age" or "proper age" although you will have to abide by the rules set forth by your parent(s). Some girls mature quicker than others. I would talk to your parents seriously about it. (I know when I tried to talk to mine, they said never) but if they know you are serious, and you have somebody in mind, and they agree to it, allow him to come over and spend time with them. Trust me. You will get either their approval or not almost immediately. Most of us parents have radar.........Please do not start off on the wrong foot, and ruin any trust you may gain by sneaking around. I did that. BIG mistake. It took me forever to regain the trust once I had damaged it.

16 to go out on a practice date, 18 for a real date, 21 for a practice relationship, 30 for a serious relationship

ummmmmmmm..... 30????? thats old
Report as
30 isn't old, it isn't even middle age. It's the perfect age for the combination of youth AND experience.
Report as
Yeah that's pretty bad advice.
Report as
And you're how old, 13? That's why you think it's bad advice, because you don't have the life experience to know any better.
Report as
i am 18....
Report as
I was talking to Mr. Magoo over there. But yeah, 18 is still young and you've got a lot to learn.
Report as
Yeah and like you said, we've got to learn at the age of 18, so I think I'll start now.
Report as
exactly Magooga94
Report as
You can learn from your own mistakes or you can learn from the mistakes of others.
Report as
I think it's better to take chances and learn from your own mistakes then sit back and watch others. I mean you only have one life, I plan on taking advantage of that.
Report as
same here @ Magooga94
Report as
It makes a lot more sense to learn from the mistakes of others, after you've made a few of your own you'll understand what I mean.
Report as
No I understand what you mean don't get me wrong, and I respect your opinion, but I don't agree with it. I want to get out there and live my life. Not let others live it for me.
Report as
@Tony737, I have been Sexually Abused so you have no place to say to learn from others mistakes. that's not how you learn... you have to experience things yourself to know how to avoid it in he future...

"I want to get out there and live my life. Not let others live it for me." - Magoo

That's not what I'm saying, I mean observe and learn from thoise who've come before you. I don't mean stay locked up in your house. I mean when somebody else farks up, take note and don't repeat that person's mistake.

Actually I can say whatever I want to, so can you, I'm not trying to tell you what you can and can not say why are you trying to tell me? Yes, experiencing things for yourself is great, but if you have the braipower to observe others and avoid their mistakes it's even better, some day you'll understand.
Report as
Goter ^
Report as
do call me by my last name.... and also take children that experience one of their parents getting abused by the other, they're going to have trust issues and not know how to fix them by just watching others... they need to try it out themselves.... so your argument is void...
Report as
I'll call you by whatever name I choose, if you don't want your last name used then don't present it to the entire world. Anyway, you're taking this all the wrong way, all I'm saying is that if you see somebody else make a stupid mistake you can learn from it. What's your problem with that? Oh right, because you're 18 and at that age kids think they know it all.

Tony's got a

Well if you're asking because you think you've met a boy then 13 is an ok age to start dating people. There isn't really a age you just know when you meet someone that the time is right especially if he feels the same. Also I don't know if you have to have permission off your parents just coz I don't. You might not be serious though and even if you are the other person might be immature. Hope I could help :-) and gl

If you meet someone you want ,you can date .by the way ,i think you won't have time to consider if you should date or not when you meet the person .cause you just want to get along with him or her .you will be emotional ,not be rational!

age is just a number to me your maturity is what you should be thinking about. i say when ever you feel ready many of my family members have ment their true love when they were about the age of 9. but it is better to be friends with the one you want to date. my boyfriend and i were friends for almost 5 years and in october i decided to get out of the friend zone and tell him how i felt and lucky me he felt the same way. best choice of my life. but I dont know how old you are but i think you should at least wait untill 12.

Wait at least till you're 21. No need to rush, and be mature about it when you do start dating. Use my favorite word. "NO" often!
