Question: How old do you have to be to start dating a boy?

Teenage dating can be confusing for parents. Your child might not even wait for the teenage years before they ask you if they can “go out” with someone. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, kids start dating at an average age of 12 and a half for girls and 13 and a half for boys.

At what age can a girl date a boy?

The American Academy of Pediatrics notes that on average, girls begin dating as early as 12 and a half years old, and boys a year older.

Can a 12 year old boy have a boyfriend?

Some kids may start expressing interest in having a boyfriend or girlfriend as early as age 10 while others are 12 or 13 before they show any interest. The key is for parents to remember that the tween years are a time of transition. That said, try not to be overwhelmed by your tweens budding interest in dating.
