For me a real official date is when the boy and girl go someplace together without anyone else.  So my answer is 15, because 16 is the legal driving age here and my hs boy friend was a few months older than me.  When we started dating neigher of us could drive, so we went with friends or one of our parents dropped us off somewhere.

I was allowed to officially start dating when I was 16 years old. I didn't go on my 1st date until I was 17. Guess I was a late bloomer.

I had to be 16 and I was 17 when I went on what I consider my first "real" date.

i wasnt allowed to start dating until i turned 16, but i didnt go out on my first official date until i turned 18 because the guy i was going to go out with was 4 years older than me and he and i decided it would be best if we waited til i turned 18, it was like 3 months from the time we started talking and hanging out til we went on our first date. he was the asst. manager at the movie theater at our mall and i worked in our mall. i did end up taking him to my senior prom too, it was after i turned 18,lol

I was about 17 and it was a blind date and it was pretty horrible.

My official first date was on my hs bf 16 birthday. I was 1 month shy of 16. I would say 16 for my daughter. I am sure dh will object. LOL.

 I had a boyfriend when I was 8 we did not of course though go out alone but I did kiss him... I went out alone with a boy when I was a freshman (14) dated him until I was almost 17. my parents did not really have rules.... about anything and if they did they did not enforse them

Ha.  I was allowed to date at 16, but didn't find anyone worth dating until college.  I was 20.
