    • I’d say at least 1 to 2 year age difference. Especially for those just starting to date.

    • Well once they are 15, I guess for me I would say 18.  But if the girl is about 13 then she needs to date boys no older than 16 I guess.  Shoot who the freak knows, girls are so more mature than boys...

    • In my opinion I don’t think a boy/girl should be allowed to begin dating until the age of 16 and with that it depends on their grades in school and the level of maturity and responsibility in knowing what its all about. If they can pass my tests lol, I think being no more than 2 yrs. older for age 16 after the age of 18-20 should be no older than 3 yrs.

    • well actually what my daughter calls dating, and What I call dating are 2 different things...but she is 14, and likes a boy that is 17, I dont let them do things alone nor are they allowed to GO PLACES alone. But he can come over and watch movies, go places with us, or I can take them to the show etc. (except he drives...dont know how long he will be ok with mom playing chauffer)
      Her dad said when she is 15, she can double date, which I guess is ok...she will be in high school. Just wondering what other moms with teenage girls do.
      She is so mature for her age, I cant even begin to think she would ever like a boy her age...God I am in for a rough road I think

    • well she (my daughter) just earned herself another year before she can double date but when she turns 16 she can date somebody no older than 18 years old and they better be scared of her mother!

    • I say 2 years difference....  however.....  hehe  If the boy is older - I would watch them like a hawk!!!!!  My daughter got sick of dating the boys her age or older - because after only a couple dates, and sometimes even on the 1st date!, they pushed the sex issue!  She was tired of being pressured....  so she went for YOUNGER!  hehe  Good for her!  The younger ones are too naive and chicken to ask for that!  hehe  So - she was 16 when she started dating her boyfriend - who was then 14 (almost 15) and they’ve been together for 2 years!  She has trained him well!  No SEX involved!  At least not yet (she told him not until he’s done with high school in 2 more years!) - and she’s going away to college in June!  woohoo!

    • I think it all depends on the kids involved.  I used to date younger guys too, liked them a lot better.   Now my 3 daughters are a different story.  None of them have ever been interested in guys their own age.  They all go for much older (4-10 yrs.) guys and so far it’s never been a problem.  Of course none of my girls have really dated much either.  Their choice, not any strict limits on my part.

    • I will hope that there’ll be no need for an age difference because of abtinence. Our children need to understand that they could pay a heavy price. I was at a library yesterday and over heard a young man speaking to his girlfriend. The way he spoke to her was ashame. He was verbally abrusive. These young men today have no respect nor dignity. No age is acceptable until they are grown. Fully capable of making mature decisions for their future.

    • Dear 3sa what you are consenting to is an adult (at the age of 18 by law you are consider an adult) can date your 16 year old daughter. I couldn’t believe what I read. Your daughter could be vunerable to date rape. We need to take a stand as parents and tell our daughters that they are well worth the wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Their price is far above rubies.

    • I think a two year age difference is about the most I would go for.  It depends upon the maturity levels of the teens involved.

    • As a parent to 6 teenage children, I don’t think there is a specific age. I am more incline to believe it depends on their maturity level (if they follow the rules, help arounds the house, do chores without asking, helping their friends in time of need, and so forth)BUT most of all it is being able to TRUST your teenager to make the best choices for him or herself.
