Well... my first "girlfriend" was in middle school, I mean we went out on dates and such, and called each other boyfriend/girlfriend, probably even kissed, hell if I remember. So I guess middle school age is alright to start?

Most don't seem to date until High School though. Also seems my generation and the generation following are not dating until late high school or even college... dunno... I feel like dating in High School was a good and fun experience.

But really... there is no "right age" for everyone. Everyone has different tastes or goals.

Some want it early, some never.

Bwaha. Don't get me wrong, I'd put rules down. At first 16 would be perfect but I think experiencing a little love will be healthy during your first year. Get a sense of what you want and what you don't want and hopefully they'll say fuck it all together until they graduate :p.

Dating isn't what happens much anymore once you're an adult these days. Adults tend to only want casual sex without dating involved.
So being a kid and going out with your crush is likely going to be more innocent than when you grow up. What do I know though.

Personally I'd say at least wait until you've graduated high school. I mean unless you are really good at juggling your grades, social life, personal hobbies and that significant other and not feel stressed or fatigued, then maybe 15 or 16. Plus once you get out in the world there is much more variety than just the few hundred kids at your high school/middle school. It's not like after high school our lives are over after all. There's always time to do what ever you like.

I really feel like to perceive certain feelings, you'd have to be around 16-18. Or at least if you've got a good grasp on whether or not your feelings are infatuation, a crush, lust, etc. and where your relationship stands.

This is pretty accurate, some highschool sweet hearts end up getting married too.

Neither me nor any of my friends started until 16-17. Some towards the end of high school. One of the guys I grew up with started at 22, and three years later he's married. Who knows? There's no reason to rush it.

I was 13, the girl I was dating was five months older than me so I'd say 13/14 is fine to start dating.

My first time I dated was at the end of grade 7, and honestly it felt too rushed, and it ended quickly. So just decide when the perfect time for yourself is.

The goal of dating to find a suitable mate. That is all. The only way that you can do this is after you finish your higher education. ( College ).
Then you have to have a job.

If you goal is to have fun. Get a friend, but don't cause unneeded stress and distractions for yourself and your parents, by trying to date.

Yes I know my answer is rather lacking when it comes to romanticism, but would you rather make a mistake that will last your entire life, or wait and have a much better chance of finding a lasting relationship.

Whenever you're comfortable with it. Everybody is different mentally and people mature faster than others, I don't think there is really a correct number for a question like this.

Well I know a lot of people started dating since elementary. Like, since 4th or 5th grade. But, I don't know.

At my highschool, we already have 9th graders dating. Most likely around 15 years, but only if you are COMFORTABLE. Im just a senior who doesn't have any experience in dating mainly because I DO NOT know many girls. My personality is half shy mainly around girls

You'll know when it's time...

But to be honest, I'm a senior in high school, haven't gone to a date in my life or a high school dance. (Prom's going to be fun for me -_-)

I think probably 8th grade at the least...but I wouldn't know much, the concept of love wasn't very "attractive" to me.
