At what age do you think a teen should be allowed to start dating? Do you think the age should be different for boys pr girls?

I don't think there is a set age for to teens to start dating. Everyone matures (mentally and physically) at a different pace. As a parent, it is up to you to decide whether or not you feel that your child is ready for dating. I think the same goes for boys or girls, although generally in our society girls are "protected" by their parents more than boys are.

I think they need to be able to act responsibly and the one is not the only problem I think we can expect 16 to be responsible for casual dating.

I think they should be able to go on group dates when they are in middle school. I don't think you can really consider something a date until both of your or at least one of you is old enough to pick the other one up and drive them. lol So, that would be 16 years of age. Well, 16 where I am from.

I think children should be atleast 18+ years old before they should be allowed to date.
