The Great Debate. The answer depends on a variety of factors, including personality and maturity level. For one, group dating is more popular than ever not to be confused with double dating, this is when girls and boys hang out en masse, usually at a mall or a restaurant. As a result, fewer boys are actually asking girls out on one-on-one dates. All but gone are the days when an invite to a movie came by way of a phone call or a shy, in-person meeting.
My sister is eleven and has had one boyfriend, well sort of, they never spoke because they were too scared : But now in 3 months she is going into 7th grade and she feels like she is ready now, for dating and kissing. But what age do you think is appropriate for that stuff? I think kissing on the cheek, holding hands, closed mouth is all fine but nothing more I think the appropriate age for kissing is 13 just because under that I still consider you a kid. I don't mind cute, child love.
In terms of your life, one year probably isn't all that long of a time. But when you're in love, it can feel like infinity. When you're dating someone and I mean seriously dating, not just sleeping with them every couple of weeks for a year, you inevitably learn a lot about them. It's an arbitrary measure of time, for sure - one couple might learn a the same amount about each other in only a few weeks that it might take other couples years to learn, and neither scenario necessarily paints a picture of a "stronger" or "better" couple - and you might not know all the most intimate details of their past, or all their wildest hopes and dreams in a year. But you do get a very solid understanding of who they are as a person, especially if you're joined at the hip figuratively and literally for that year. And let's face it: a new couple in love is likely to be more than happy to spend a year staring into one another's eyes and drawing out all the secrets that live behind them.
