  • Why not? Love is love.

  • I'm a young guy, 17 almost 18. I have had the ability to think for myself and make my own decisions since before I was 14. I accepted reality and sought after it and it has made me into what I am now. The point is that even though they may be young they are still people. To them they aren't just your kid or just you nephew/nice or grandchild. They are their own person with their own identity and are in the process of developing themselves for their futures. They do not need adult supervision to be able to make a decision once they hit a certain level of maturity. For me that was the 11-12 area. For most it's the 13-14 area. Even if you don't like that argument think about it from an experience perspective. They need to develop in some way. By holding that back you hurt so much more than you help...

  • It really depends on the situation and the teens involved. But in general, they should.

  • It's natural. Love is love. I mean it usually isn't "true" love, but when you have feelings for someone, there's no reason you shouldn't be able to appropriately express them. It's a good feeling, being with someone who you like a lot and who you know likes you back.

  • I feel you should be able to date if you have feeling for someone. But I think it should be at least 6 grade and up in my opinion

  • If people love each sure why not

  • It's good experience to help them develop skills useful for dating later on.

  • Love is a balance of a chemical called oxytocin. If you're able to balance the act of dating with the ability to not disregard anyone after a period of time then you should be allowed.

  • You feel ready when you are ready. You don't need anyone to be in charge of you.

  • Not only should they be allowed to date, but they should date aloud.

  • Really? Already forgotten when you were 16?

  • Dating is just a natural part of human behavior.

  • because im datating a girl at is my age

  • They get to expiriance real world life

  • I'm dating and I'm 15

  • Kids should not date in general. Keep yo hormones 'til marriage!

  • 16 maybe 15 its ok before that you shpuld just be a kid. stop trying to grow up so fast and focus on other things like your education, developing interests, honbies, creativity, etc.

  • kids are just going to get there hearts broken if the relationship actuary means anything. also where and what can they do on a date, they probity don't have any type of of a car there are also too young to make a big decision like that . it can change you whole life

  • Middle school relationships don't count as dating.

  • No, they should be aquiet to date

  • They shouldn't be "aloud." They should do so quietly.

I began dating at a very early age. Things worked out well.
PericIes says2015-05-26T02:28:28.6779582-05:00
Biologically speaking, you *should* date at that age. The morality of it is a different matter entirely, but this poll does not detail a specific instance that dating at this age should be allowed. Because of the biological factor, there are no doubt some instances in which it is morally acceptable as well, and therefore my answer is yes.

CentristX says2015-05-26T13:51:08.8479212-05:00
They should be allowed to date once they learn how to spell certain words correctly. *SPOILER ALERT* Of the words the person must spell, "allowed" is one of them.

CommunistDog says2015-05-26T16:18:38.5890598-05:00
The longest run for someone dating (age 12-14) in my school was 3 months.
SamStevens says2015-05-26T17:36:10.1838710-05:00
It depends on the child's maturity.
CommunistDog says2015-05-26T18:57:00.1686838-05:00
@Sam Yup, the 8th graders in my school, including me, are NOT ready
OpinionPersom121 says2015-05-26T19:12:27.6592650-05:00
@ComunistDog wow that's pretty cool at my school 6-12 date so that's cool to see
CommunistDog says2015-05-26T19:36:55.5321018-05:00
Well... The concept of dating in itself seems more or less sad to see how one day they say "true love" and the next "eh"
OpinionPersom121 says2015-05-26T20:00:47.3836150-05:00
XD I guess but I don't really see it as "true love" I see it more towards caring for the other person but I do see your point
OpinionPersom121 says2015-05-26T20:29:15.8458206-05:00
Btw when I said 6-12 I meant the grade not age
ford_prefect says2015-05-26T20:58:16.3512478-05:00
Anyone who can't spell the word "allowed" shouldn't be allowed to date
OpinionPersom121 says2015-05-26T21:07:56.4521218-05:00
Varrack says2015-05-26T21:43:05.6574026-05:00
Oh no...This poll has gotten stuck on the front page.
CommunistDog says2015-05-26T21:51:51.6404890-05:00
Its the end of the worldddd
PericIes says2015-05-26T23:31:52.5215538-05:00
Only one of the "no" arguments was devoid of grievous spelling and/or punctuation and/or grammar errors. Case closed.
reece says2015-05-26T23:48:43.9266866-05:00
I started at first base in year 2 (1st grade.) But one day she turned around and said that we're not BF&GF :(
CommunistDog says2015-05-26T23:51:29.0545557-05:00
O__O Ok then...
Philocat says2015-05-27T07:10:07.4920943-05:00
Regardless of whether they should, we can't exactly stop them without going full-authoritarian (which would be worse than the negatives of young people dating).
sarah.zhang123 says2015-05-27T18:23:40.2686253-05:00
Should date under age 16.
komododragon8 says2015-05-27T18:33:17.9823889-05:00
Does anybody know why this poll is stuck on the front page?
gabep says2015-05-27T20:44:16.7812593-05:00
No idea. Seriously, i'm just sick of seeing it on the front page. Someone make a poll about an extremely controversial topic to get rid of this one.
CommunistDog says2015-05-27T21:20:09.4231875-05:00
So... God?
gabep says2015-05-27T21:29:19.1638980-05:00
Yes. God should work.
gabep says2015-05-27T21:52:41.0164525-05:00
OK. Here goes... Http://www.Debate.Org/polls/conservatives-what-religion-do-you-think-president-obama-practices
PetersSmith says2015-05-27T22:15:47.3500105-05:00
The front page is currently experiencing an error. This "issue" shall be resolved eventually. Because of this "error", no new poll is able to replace this one.
gabep says2015-05-28T17:42:21.1402678-05:00
YES! Not on the front page anymore! (Breathes a sigh of relief). Now, if only the notifications would just disappear...
highwaytohell says2015-12-25T06:01:45.1260725Z
Not until you learn to spell "allowed"
triangle.128k says2015-12-25T06:32:03.6365678Z
@highwaytohell Stop necro-posting
