Question: At what age should I start dating?

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, kids start dating at an average age of 12 and a half for girls and 13 and a half for boys. Every teen — or preteen — is different, though, and your child might be ready sooner or later than their peers.

Whats the right age to start dating?

Experts recommend ages 16 and 17 is the ideal age to start dating, along with observing how mature your child is and how well they handle responsibilities.

Is it wrong for a 16 to date 14?

Dating is not illegal. Sexual relations can be. If you are not 4 years older it is not statutory rape. But there is coercion that could be alleged now or later if she gets upset.
