Anything younger than 15 I think is too young... It's funny bc my mom was complaining that my niece who is 13 years old still plays with dolls and she thinks my niece should be a little more "mature" for her age. I think in US kids grow up and are exposed to adult life much too early and don't experience the wonder of being young and blissfully ignorant to the makings and happenings of the adult world... I'm sure some people will call me old fashion, but the way I see it; you're young only once and once you become an adult there's no turning back...

I think it's different for women, because we hit puberty sooner than men and you can't help the feelings that start to develop. From an adult's perspective, I would want them to wait longer, but from a kid's perspective, I understand that dating is something that naturally occurs once the hormones kick in.

I think it depends on the person. Different people mature at different times and thats part of what makes us unique. I mean I would definitely say probably at the very youngest mid-middle school (which in my town is grades 5-8) but I think some girls get too attached to having a boyfriend if they start too early. I really don't know though, this is a view coming from a 16 year old who hasn't dated (I'm allowed to, it just hasn't happened for me yet) so I don't know how creditable my opinion is.
