What age do you allow for group dating and one-on-one dating?

DS isn't allowed to date until he's 16. There's really no need before then anyway, and actually I hope he waits longer. The point of dating is to find someone to marry. Teenagers should focus on other things.

If by group dating you mean a mixed group of boys and girls go places and do stuff, 12-14 is a good age for that. My dd was allowed to solo date when she asked to start, that was late 15, eearly 16ish.

They can date at 15 or 16. A think 13 and up is a good age for group gatherings.

It depends on the kids.

My 17 year old 'dated' this kid when they were in the 8th grade.  That 'dating' consisted of hanging out here or at his house, with family, always supervised.  They went to the movies once with me sitting two rows behind with my older daughter.

They went bowling with a group of friends but a parent was there, not just in their face.

They could go no where unless one of the parents was there or her older sister.   

Nothing bad happened and they were great kids.  They are still friends today.

I'd be ok with group dates at that age
