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.

I know kids who have girlfriends or boyfriends just because they think they will look like a loser if they don't. It's sad what our culture impresses on the youth of this nation. Let them be kids while they can before entering the social pressures of adulthood.

Um, dating is NOT all about sex. Sex and romance are separate realms which cross over at times, but they are not ALWAYS correlated. What about asexuals who desire to have a sexless relationship? And I get that there are 12 and 13 year olds having sex, but not all of them are going to. Dating does not = sex. Get a better argument man.

Still, 10-14-year-olds as a whole are not mature enough to be having a real romantic relationship. Now, before you snap at me, I'm going to point out that this is most definitely not always the case. However, I suppose what the creator of the stamp is trying to say is that children should at least wait until the relationship can be truly meaningful to have one. Many teenaged relationships and love are forged because the couple is mostly drawn to one another for looks, and not real love. They want to make themselves look good by dating a "hot" boy/girl. No one is worried about personality. They just want someone who looks good. Again, this is probably not always the case, but it happens enough times to give this stamp a reason to exist. Children do not understand the real meaning of love, which is SUPPOSED to be the reason people date.

I'm not going to snap at you dude, why'd you think that? You sound more reasonable than the artist comments though.

10-14 year olds perhaps even themselves know that it's not going to last forever and ever but I think most dating around that age is pure curiousity and exploration. I actually don't see anything wrong with that, I'm sorry. They better themselves for future serious relationships. I mean I don't think we as people have any business to stick our noses into these kid's relationships, after all if every relationship has to be special, pure of heart and extremely serious in order to be a relationship, where's the fun and humour in that? Why do grown adults screw up and make the same mistakes as teenagers?

I do understand where you're coming from, and don't disagree. Teenagers do need the experience. I remember being twelve years old and convinced I was in love. (Which didn't last the month.) I'm just trying to say that they should really be ready before they spring into a relationship. I hope I'm making sense.

Yeah ok. I just wish more parents would talk their kids about things like that. From what I've heard from my younger friends it's becoming less and less common for children to learn lessons from their parents (with the actual life experience) and more and more common that they'll use technology like the internet to learn about dating/sex and that honestly scares me to bits :o (Eek)

I agree! It's very scary nowadays how children will use the internet as a resource, yet not their parents. Honestly, which is more trustworthy: real people who you know and trust, and who are experienced in the matter, or a porn website you found through a Google search that can be edited by anyone on the planet? To me, it seems like an obvious choice!
