At what age were you allow to date?

I wasn't allowed to date. I had to focus on school. There was alot of sneaking around, lol.

  • My mom told me once I was grown and out of the house, my dad said he'd prefer I wait until around 16 1/2 so I could drive my self and be able to leave early if I needed to (smart thinking, in my opinion!). I wasn't really interested though. I had my first boyfriend at 17 but we didn't really go anywhere, just hung out at his cousin's (my best friend) home. I didn't go on a real date until I was 18 and met my now husband.

  • Whenever I felt like it, my parents never paid attention to me or what I did. So I started dating at 12. My kids on the other had have to wait till they are 16.

  • 16 but no 1:1 dating, only in groups. (like that prevented much). I wasn't allowed to 1:1 date until I was 18. Yeah, there was a lot Mom didn't

  • I had my first date when I was 15, but it was during the daytime with a boy my parents knew well. I don't think they'd have said yes if it had been at night or with someone else.

  • 15/16 was when I was technically allowed. Now, I went to dances and things like that at 13 and 14, but no technical dates.

  • I was allowed to start dating around 15 but I did date sooner my parents just didnt know, I would say I was about 14 when I secretly started dating.
