There is no definite time when a person is "of age" to date. It all depends on the person(s) maturity level. Don't rush things. Trust me when you get "old" you will wish for the days when all you had to worry about was if you were old enough to date or not. I would sit down with your parents and find out what they are thinking, and come to a mutual decision if possible with them. It doesn't matter what we on ask.com say.....if your parents aren't on board with the advice, it won't happen.
