What is an appropriate time for dating?

Post by Krystyl Says on Tue Aug 11, 2015 1:20 pm

According to the research: 



You should know that there is research that demonstrates that children ages 10-12 who begin steady dating often do more poorly in school and have more behavior problems. Thus, there is some agreement as to what is too  "young", but there is little understanding of a universal right age. Most experts believe that if teens under age 15 are allowed to date, they should engage in group dates exclusively and a responsible adult should be present.


Romantic Feelings of Teens: A Natural Process



Teens face strong pressures to date, as well as get involved in a romantic relationship. A romantic relationship is one that involves feelings of attraction--physical and friendship. In fact, over half of teens in the United States report dating regularly (casual dates with one or more partners at different times) whereas a third claim to have a steady dating (exclusive) partner. Young teens usually hang out with peers who are the same gender as they are. As they reach the mid-teen years (age 14-15 years), they start having relationships with peers of the opposite sex. Such relationships are likely to be friendships and/or physical attractions. Although most romantic relationships among 12- to 14-year-olds last less than 5 months, by age 16 relationships last an average of 2 years. In the early teen years dating is more superficial--for fun and recreation, status among peers, and exploring attractiveness/sexuality. In the older teen years youth are looking for intimacy, companionship, affection, and social support.


For you? if you had your own child, What is an appropriate time for dating?

If I have my own child I would let her to date with someone if she already know how to stand on her self. Does it appropriate?

age is just a number for me, it cannot assess the maturity of an individual we must bear in mind that dating and courting is preparation to so called solemnity tradition of wedding but we must be financially, emotionally and spiritual ready before we engage on this thing

yaah, and im into you @kuajazer, age is just a number. 

Desiring a romantic partner is a natural, expected part of adolescence. However, involvement in a serious or exclusive romantic relationship in the preteen/early teen years can create problems. True romantic relationships are about intimacy, or communicating detailed, personal information verbally, and physical contact and closeness.

@LoryMay ,

As long as dating doesn't start too early in the adolescent years, dating can be a way to learn:


  1. cooperation skills and sharing of activities,
  2. socially appropriate behavior and manners,
  3. interdependence and companionship,
  4. compromise,
  5. empathy and sensitivity, and
  6. how to develop an intimate, meaningful relationship.

@LoryMay, sure here are those: 

The dark side of dating in the teen years is that it can put youth at risk. Frequent dating--or spending time with romantic partner(s) several times a week--in early adolescence is connected with adolescent risk behaviors such as school failure (poor school performance and limited educational goals), drug use, and delinquency. Other problems for preteens or early adolescents who date frequently and/or exclusively include:


  • having poor social skills that last through the later teenage years,
  • depression, or
  • sexual activity.

oow Shocked, now i know all the consequences of early adolescence in dating. It can harm the lives of youth when they did it. Teens must be monitored in this very important stage of their lives because it can gives a very big impact with their future.
Thanks mam Krystyl Smile this thread is very useful.

I just wanna share this to all the people following this thread: 
According to the research, the proportion of young U.S. teens dating steadily is higher than some would expect. 
When asked, "In the last 18 months have you had a special romantic relationship with anyone?", teens reported that2:

  • 25% of 12-year-old and 37% of 13-year-old males had been in a romantic relationship.

  • 27% of 12-year-old and 34% of 13-year-old females had been in a romantic relationship.

  • 45% of 14-year-old and 49% of 15-year-old males had been in a romantic relationship.

  • 34% of 14-year-old and 56% of 15-year-old females had been in a romantic relationship


I hope it can give additional knowledge about this thread. Smile Godbless

ow, thanks for sharing mam Smile
@Foreveryoung, I like your username huh? Smile
according to that research you have said 
almost half of them had been into romantic relationship right? And hows the term romantic relationship is all about? 
Take a look at this: 

         With a romantic relationship, you get to know your partner a lot more intimately.

         For some romantic relationship are the most meaningful element in their lives, providing a source of fulfillment outside of ourselves. 

        And that's why A teens chance of involvement in dating violence increases if he or she has experienced abusive family relationships, as well as frequent, early dating and/or sexual involvement. A portion of teens face the dangers of dating violence. 
        The expectation for sex in teen relationships may be partly explained by the media which socializes teens on dating and sexual behaviors

who influences? hmmm , i think Peers may influence a teen's dating life, but parents and families should have the final say. Families can provide support for their teens or add stress to their lives. Early teen girls who date and have parents who continually fight are likely to have low self-esteem. Girls who date early and have strict and emotionally distant parents are likely to be depressed. On the other hand, families can be a great support to their teens. 
For example, teen girls with warm, strong relationships with their mothers and who were not involved in steady dating had higher grades than their romantically involved peers.

uh , if thats so, we should strengthen the family communication. i remember a tv commercial of Lucky Me, we should wait for all the family members to arrive home, before taking their dinner meal to have their regular communication.

that's rough though for the new generation families, all of the family members had their own world every day. The mom and dad busy doing their work. And the children immersed with thier school stuffs.
