so i was wondering, what do you guys think about all the high schoolers and even younger dating?
i think its plain retarded, i am 21 now and what i wanted in a girlfriend when i was 15 (when i started dating) is pretty much the polar opposite of what i want now. id sooner kill my self then date any of the chicks ive dated since. lol

i would even go as far as to say that if your under 20 and considering dating your just being a inpatient idiot -.-

I don't look at it that way. You're always growing up and your tastes are always changing from one thing to the next throughout childhood and your teenage years, sure... but that doesn't stop there! Even when I was 21 I was much different than I am now, but that doesn't mean I was stupid for dating someone at 21 or that anyone else that's 21 is stupid for dating, you see?

Middle and High school are some of the biggest years of learning for kids, and it shouldn't stop just at school. With friendships, kids are learning too. So why should that mean they have to leave out relationships? It's all trial and error and learning and that's fine.

Personally I didn't date when I was in school, it wasn't until I graduated. But it was more because I was so into being in band/orchestra/marching band and doing other activities with friends that none of us had time to date anyone.

it's fun and a learning experience. so i wouldn't be against it.

let them experience a few heartbreaks (as long as it doesn't end up in suicide...)

I would respectfully disagree with you. It's a bit too extreme to suggest that teenagers under the age of 20 are incapable of handling mature relationships. The fact that some high school couples end up in a happy and fruitful marriage serves as a testament to their ability to understand love. I'm assuming that you view love for teenagers as senseless because they are too young to recognize the purpose of dating. In some sense, you're right in that high schoolers are still growing and developing and can be immature at times. However, I still believe in young love. Children under the age of 20, like adults, can still experience love.

Love involves mutual understanding, kindness, compassion, and the willingness to reconcile differences and endure adversity together. If a young couple can understand this, they can love one another, making their relationship fruitful and worthwhile. As a high schooler who has dated, I can attest to that.

I think 16 is a good age to date.
They're most likely more mature around that age.

I'd say 16-18 is a decent age, I keep seeing younger and younger kids dating (shaking my head) I remember being in 5th grade when my friends all started dating and I was just like no thank you. Dating is for the most part to find a wife/husband so dating at a really young age is ridiculous. Personally I would date someone but I'm not looking to get married and probably never will be, but you never know.

I met and started a relationship with my current partner when I was around 17. It was and still is a good relationship... I don't think it's good to judge the entirety of a human issue solely on your own limited experience. *shrug*

I'd say no younger than 18. While mental maturity takes a while longer to muster, at 18, at least legal ramifications and high school are out of the way.

I'm younger than most of the people on this site. But I would bet that I'm more mature than over half of them. I'm mature for my age. I can handle most situations very well. I take on a lot of responsibility at home, and that has helped mature me. I don't sit on my ass at home all day playing videos games and smoking pot because I'm too lazy to get a job, nor do I go out partying and trying all sorts of drugs at night like most people my age.

I'm also one of the people that think that what I choose to do with my life is my choice, and it's none of your business. My choices affect you in no way.

Kids think dating is a game at my age. They think it's fun to have a boyfriend/girlfriend for a small amount of time. Honestly, I do not have any say in this situation since I am considered a baby still, but it's honestly up to that person on how they live their life. There are a lot of idiotic children now, but that doesn't mean we're all like them. I hope you guys haven't given up on us yet.
