Seems as though my Emma (11) has her first boyfriend. She's in 6th grade and he asked her best friend to ask her out for him yesterday. She said yes and he told her he's liked her since she transfered into the school district during 5th grade.
Honestly I think it's cute, and at this point all that dating means is that they walk to classes together, sit together in lunch, and hang-out at the school dance together. They might exchange school photos and phone numbers.
Just wanted to share.
