I think once you are 15 you can group date, but I would wait until you are 17 or 18 until you start exclusively dating because dating is when you are looking for a life partner. Do you think you will find true love when you are 13? I doubt it. When you are 17 you basically have your own independence, you can drive anywhere and your parents are not always by your side. It's just more convenient and easier once you are older.

I’d say when you can talk is a good time to start.
Every time you run into a spider web, pretend its a finish line. It's kinda hard to be terrified when you're too busy being a champion.

That makes no sense.

it made perfect sense. what's the use in dating someone if you're still having your parents drive you to Chuck E. Cheese's? makes much more sense to start when you have a car so you can personally pick up your partner.

Chuck E Cheese? Really? If your parents have to drive you to your date, that's embarrassing. If you're going to Chuck E Cheese...that's....that's just wrong...in so many ways :blink:


I think dating is unnecessary.

Lol so true about Chuck E Cheese! But why do you think dating is unnecessary? It's a step of getting to know someone who could be your future spouse. I wouldn't wanna skip it...

Because can't you get to know your future even in a friend relationship? Why does the label "girlfriend" or "boyfriend" have to be stuck on them in order to get to know them as a future spouse? That's my personal opinion.

Ohhh... I see what your saying. But I still think dating is good.

Yall made this "Quoteable Quotes" part 3 :blink:

Lol :lol: whoops


@ Mp, I think its okay of you still think dating is good. I honestly couldn't have serious dating relationship just because its so...awkward for me. I'd rather be friends with a guy for a while without being pressured to be attached at the hip all the time just because I'm his "girl friend". Idk, that's just me and my quirky self :silly:

May I chime in for a bit?

Quirky, being in a relationship is not just about being pressured to being attached at the hip, or rather doing anything for him because of what you two are. From personal experience, I do agree whole-heartedly about having a close platonic friendship with a boy before dating him, you both will find common interests and be comfortable around each other. And when you both DO start dating, nothing really changes at all. You both can connect with each other emotionally, mentally, and intimately without having to feel pressured, because you trust and love him, and if he is the one, he will reciprocate those feelings also. You both will have your ups and downs being in a relationship, but soon enough, if you both are destined by God, you both will overcome anything.

Having a boyfriend/girlfriend relationship is just like being best friends with someone, except you both can express feelings and gestures of intimacy with each other.

Thanks for that. I do agree that a dating relationship should be an extension of a friendship (and if I sound like I'm talking out of two sides of my mouth please let me know guys). Whenever I think of "dating" my mind goes to all of that that elementary/middle school drama foolishness that I was exposed to. If I were to "date" a guy, I'd want it to be just how you explained it. I don't want it to be "ten 'trial runs' within two weeks" kind of thing, ya know? But yeah, thanks for saying that :)

Aha, thank you for your concern. I apologize for not being online and posting, as I was on a short hiatus. But I am back now and I have you all to thank for that. And yes, I fully agree about taking things slow with a guy, as that will enable you to think twice before taking things to another level with your significant other.

But most importantly, above everything else, make sure you are able to love yourself even without being in a relationship. If you are in a relationship solely because you seek validation of yourself from your partner, what will become of you if you aren't dating him anymore? A boyfriend/fiancé/husband should be an addition or treat to your already amazing life, not your whole life itself.

Sorry if it sounded like I am nagging, but I really think this should just be put out there for people who need this. :3


I love what you said. TAKING THINGS S L O W.

YAAAAAY Quotable Quotes 3!!!!!! Ah... best age to start dating... when your frontal lobe is developed? IDK...

If you want to date then do a recreational group activity. Group date, have friends tag along. Then you can get to know the object of your affection better.

When you are in high school you should concentrate on your studies and not date. I think when you are in college and at an age where you can marry you can start dating, after all, isn't that the purpose of dating?

it was a bad guess :S oh well.
I would think that you should start dating to find the person that you will get married to in, say, college. I have heard multiple times to never date in high school, and I will, for the most part (I think), take their advice... maybe... I actually have no idea what I will do.

If you can't drive anywhere, you shouldn't have to worry about things going wrong unless you're home alone. If you're too young, where are you gonna go? Go to Chuck E. Cheese? Sit at the same lunch table and share juice boxes?

Mmm that could very well happen, but it could very well not. If you're dating someone in high school, chances are you're not going to get married. Just keeping it real. Also, in my opinion (I'm sure I've commented under this before but it's been so long I have no idea what I said XD) Dating someone does not "obligate" you to marry them. I feel like the picture of "Christian relationships" that conveys dating intentionally and all that is unrealistic. (This is just my opinion) dating is a way to get to know someone you are romantically interested in. Even if they're already your friend, you get to know them on a different level. What if you date him/her and find they're really not the person for you? However, I do think that dating is a big deal and shouldn't be taken lightly, aka going around "dating" each guy/girl in your class for two weeks each.

As for age, I will be allowed to date when I am 17, which seems like a good age to me.

Sure, I'll hang out with guys at school (I'm in high) but I won't get too relationship-ey until maybe my junior year and actually get serious maybe halfway through college but I'd want to finish my masters before I get married. Of course, my ideas will probably change after some time, but this is my plan for now :)

The best age to start dating is no age. You can't base it off of age you base it off of maturity. But the maturity level should probably be around 17 to 18. But I may be biased at 16 years old so... Also I like how some people are saying "focus on your studies?" What you mean to focus on work? You do know high school is really easy right and "your studies" are nothing compared to the work you have to do when you get older and you are supposedly supposed to be finding a wife or husband. High school isn't hard at all compared to real work and college.
