You Shouldn't be Dating by Haters-Gonna-Hate-Me You Shouldn't be Dating by Haters-Gonna-Hate-Me
9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 is too young to be dating.

Why? Because you're not mature enough. I think the world has enough pregnant 12 and 13 year olds, thank you. Hell, I would even say that most high school students aren't mature enough to really date, but, at least in high school you are more mature than a little sevvie. Also, dating in high school is what gets you prepared for real life because that's what you're going to be thrust into before you know it.

Uhrm, I can sort of see where this is coming from but it's not right. Age has nothing to do with maturity, some young people have actually matured faster and know how to handle a relationship. And those same people also are smart enough not to get pregnant. I think a better stamp would be 9-14 year olds shouldn't be getting SERIOUS into dating, but they do have the right to test the waters and see what they like so they'll be ready to handle one in the future. It's a vast generalization that young teens can't handle relationships and get pregnant, and for some that is the case, but you shouldn't just automatically shut someone down when they say they're 14 and are in a relationship unless you think they're not safe when dating the person or that they can't handle it yet. Age has nothing to do with if you're ready for a relationship, age DOES however determine if you're ready for a serious one. Some aspects of maturity may come with age, but I have met 12 year olds that knew what they're talking about and are very mature when it comes to romantic deals. So please, don't speak for the kids like you know what's best, because you obviously don't.

Well, I think 14 is fine, really. I don't see the connection to underage pregnancy, really.
The rate is a lot lower in my country, yet we aren't nearly as paranoid about dating and sex as americans. Kids dating at 14 or younger are not really anythign special here.
The difference is that we have mandatory sex ed in school starting in 5th grade. It really helps when kids know the risks, instead of trying to shelter them paranoidly, which won't work anyway.

I'm 15 and I'm not dating anyone because I think I'm too young. Many of my friends had boyfriends when they were younger than me (my best friend had her first when she was 11), but I don't want to date anyone yet.

@ all the kids being like "im in 9th grade i can smoke weed and have sex and do whatever i want uwu":

i "dated" someone when i was 14 and i was waaaay too immature, even at my age. it was a fucking disaster when they broke up with me. i know everyone is different but still. the people who've had terrible experiences dating when they're young don't want others to experience the same shit they have. especially when a teen's partner is much older than them which sadly i see way too much, especially online.

I'm not rude. I merely don't see any reason to sugarcoat things.
I call religious people out on their bullshit. Nothing more.

And you can't date someone in your mind. The act of dating requires both participants to exist physically. Anything else is idle daydreaming.

I agree that only the mature one can "really" date. Ok I mean sometimes there ARE these 7y.o. kids who are more mature than some adults! Not often but i've meet a couple once! And if they "truly fall in love" it is totally okay...

Everyone at my school has some sort of boyfriend/girlfriend. This has been going on since I was in the fifth grade. They take it remarkably seriously, too. When a "couple" breaks up, there's always drama not unlike a soap opera. This is way too much drama for seventh graders.

While I agree with this, I do think it's sort of alright.

For example, if two 12-year-olds were 'in love' it would be okay, but only if they weren't technically dating (e.g. they weren't going on dates)

Hell, I'm sure we all knew people who were 'dating' at 5,6,7.
