If your age is on the clock, then your not old enough to date.

had to think about that age on the clock 12 but then I would add or use military time: 1300, 1400,1500,1600,1700,1800,1900,2000,2100,2200,2300,2400 less the two zero's By 24 one should be mature and ready for a serious relationship and not a fling. bruce educator

I'm not saying all, but most boys at this age are immature :P As long as the person is actually committed and doesn't only like you for your body then I guess it's okay to start in High School. Get to know the actual guy first, not just how hot he looks. Good luck! :)

It doesn't matter, as long as the other person is committed and so are you. So I suggest not having a relationship if your 11 or younger, It's just my opinion!

I guess that's a good age to have a boyfriend/girlfriend, just make sure the person likes you for you and you like the other person for them.

I'd say once they graduated college, the parents like the boy/girl, and your child likes him/her. :)

I would say 16, but it totally depends on the amount of maturity

In my opinion and who am I to give an opinion. It would have been informative 'if' you would have defined the requirements of maturity in detail. bruce educator

I would say 16. And honestly having a boyfriend isn't a need. Be single and have fun while your young. There's a lot of responsibility in being in a relationship.

It depends. If it's just like being best friends and spending a lot of time together then 10 or 11 but if it's like making out and going to dinner then 15 or 16. Probably 16 'cuz then you can drive.

Easy answer if and when one really thinks about it. I would suggest after one graduates College and has a degree in their hand. Then get a Career profession and one month of setting in employment. Then consider date someone with the same or similar accomplishments or goals you have Set for your future.But whom am I to give advice. bruce educator

I want to say about 15 and 12 or younger is too young to date. It just depends on the person. You rather get to know the person first than date them.

16, that's normally when you start maturing. And I think that's for a girl, for a guy I'd say at least after high school, it's easier that way because once you start, and you want to marry them school gets in the way and he might take the easier and faster route so you can get together, and I also think in the time he's in school is when you get a job and work hard so you can start off well in school, that's what I'm doing and it's working out great :) good luck.

Stay single as long as you can! The more time youhave as a single person, the better self reliance and esteem! Also most people go through so many relationships and heartbreak before they find the right person, maybe you can delay the heartbreak if you wait!

It depends on what kind of realashionship you are talking about, it's okay to like hangout and call it dating when you are like 13 a real realashionship you should be like 16 at least.
