Let's all keep in mind what dating is. Dating is kinda like trying on shoes at the store. You search and search and search for the right pair until you find the perfect ones you want to buy. When I said "buy" in that metaphor I meant marriage. Marriage. So does anyone else here think 13 is a little too young to start looking for some you may or may not want to spend the rest of your life with? Mmm? Beside what can a 13 year old do for there "sweetie"? They can't drive. They don't have money. So what is the point? I think until you get a job that pays you money and you have a car to go somewhere then you can start dating. I think 17 and older is a good age.
When ever they are ready to get married because if you let them just date to date then you can't take it to the next level and they will just keep getting a bf or gf after they break up and if they keep doing that eventually they will have no feelings when someone breaks up with then or vice versa and try will just go on the there next date like nothing happen in there date that they had before
