Dating and marriage has never been an interest or desire of mine.
I didn't date till I was 16. That was the "Parental Rule". But I didn't date a lot, once I started. I was a bookworm. My grades always came before my social life. I married at 22 & I've been happily married for 32 years. I have a friend who had her first date, when she was a sophomore in college. Another didn't go on her first date, till the summer following her high school graduation. It's just not that big of a deal. You date because you have something in common with an individual. The older you are, you become wiser about selecting who you date. It is a learning process.
i'm 15 and have been single my whole life.... if i had a choice i would chose to date, but i could go single until i'm old enough to marry if i had to
Legal definitions aside... We should not marry until we are mature enough to handle it, we do not develop the right kind of emotional maturity without dating people, therefore if we can't date until we're (by our own standard) old enough to marry, we can never date or marry.
what? no. then you would have no experience and no expectations. things wouldnt go very far without dating first
