I think 12 is a good age because thats when kids start to get interested in dating. I first started dating when i was 12 and i thought it was ok because i was in jr. High or the 6th grade and i saw everybody else doing it so i wanted to do it too.
14% of teens are currently in a relationship they consider to be serious with a boyfriend, girlfriend or significant other. 5% of teens are in a current romantic relationship, but do not consider it to be serious. 16% of teens are not currently dating, but have had some sort of romantic relationship (whether serious or otherwise) in the past. Also I have been dating with my GF for 1 year and we have been together pretty well and we are both 13.
When the kid/teen gets 12, she/he its mature enough to date, cause its when the hormons start "developing" . Of course, any thing to serious like going to movies every week, or going to each others house. In general they could start thinking of their future relationships and see how is the real world.
Double Dates And Such I believe children at the age of 12, if they bring up the subject, are probably old enough to test the waters of dating. I think this is a good time for double dates, group dates, etc. There are many activities that kids this age can do together and their idea of dating and yours, probably don't match.

Twelve year old girls, and I mean that literally, are still playing with Barbie dolls and baking in their Easy Bake ovens. How on earth would they even know the first step in dating? Do not come back at me for girls starting earlier and think that just because they have crossed that part of life, that that makes them ready for dating.
It is obviously not an appropriate age to date. Sure, hormones may be acting up but that also means that the kid is engaging in dating only because of these hormones and not because of a meaningful reason. Preteens are an age to develop physically and emotionally and the drama and heartbreak often accompanying dating because of their still immature minds would not help. In addition to that, in the excitement of new feelings and its distraction, kids might lose out on so many more things life has to offer. Like pursuing a hobby or passion, having dreams and ambitions.
Ages around 16 is the best time. I don't think kids should be dating because their minds are not ready for that. Its ok to have friends or maybe best friends but to cross the line of dating it takes a more mature mind even though minds don't mature fully until the mid 20's anyways...

I mean, do what you want with your kids, if it was my son, and especially if I had a daughter, I'd be saying no way to anything resembling dating before 15. I don't know why 15 is a magical number, seeing as I punched my VCard at 14, but it just seems to be a more sensible and reasonable age.
Well f*** that. Twelve year olds are either still in puberty or just got out of it. They don't know what the hell is going on. This is like sending a bunch of kids off to war. The emotional damage caused by the breakups going from when their 12 till whenever they get their sh** together will just be giving us a new generation of emotionally damaged irrational people. That's what's going on right now. Grow up first, then start dating.
