    Not for myself necessarily, just wondering what you guys think. Personally I reckon a mature 16 year old can start dating but no earlier. Is that an uptight view? What do you guys think should be a good dating age?

    Anything before that is a bit silly tbh and any relationships will breaks down pretty quickly (in most circumstances)

    35 is just about acceptable if I were a parent.

    16 sounds about right, but I've seen 14 year olds get into serious relationships lol. But to have a serious relationship, I would say 19-22 would be best, you're a lot more mature and older

    Yeah, I'd say around 16 but most relationships around that age aren't serious so I wouldn't worry

    My nephew has already started and he's not even in secondary school yet

    I think I had a gf for like a week when I was in infant school lol

    I don't think any age is too young to start [as long as no sex involved]

    16 honestly. Anything younger and it won't last anyways. Then again I know a couple who started dating in Year 8 and are still together (Year 13 now)

    Yeah, I mean you get people who have had their first kiss in year 4, and people losing their virginity in year 7 which is crazy and silly. At 16 you're mature enough to make a decision about who to date and to not be gullible when it comes to love I think.

    I agree. I think it's sad there's so much peer pressure on kids to have their first kiss, a relationship or even sex at such a young age.
