Woah. Really, it depends on how well you can take on the relationship. I mean, I know someone who started dating at 13. I think. Or it was 14.

In my opinion 'school' dating ('dating' at school and the park, etc.) can happen at 12-13+, because that's not serious, but actual dating, as in, kissing, meeting up for dinner, etc. should happen at 14+ at the very least.

I think it's up to you, if you feel like your ready than you should be, but don't rush into it straight away enjoy being young, and if you want a straight forward answer, around mid-teen age. You understand it a bit more and understand the advantages and dis-advantages!

Yea I think 15+ but if you want a serious relationship -- although its a long time -- when you finish high-school is great I reckon because you aren't stressed with too much work and yea you guys are more mature. But thats just my opinion.

13 years old or in 8th grade. But really, it's up to you. If you want to start dating earlier go ahead, but remember to be careful and smart about it.

It mostly depends on if you guys talk. But otherwise, I'd say about 13.

I think it has to start when they know what "love" is and not just saying cause they want to be so it has to be when it can take they relationship seriously

Whenever you're mature enough and feel ready you can. You just have to feel ready. Age doesn't depend on whatyou feel or how you act. So I will range it from girls puberty ages or boys ages
Girls: 9-14
Boys: 10-14 (I don't know their puberty age range)

i wasn't allowed to date until i was in high school, and i THANK my parents for that rule! when you are in elementary or middle school, it rarely works out. all the girls i knew that dated at that age were miserable because of the drama. i didn't start dating until i was 17 (I'm 19 now) and we are still together! I'm SO happy i waited! you should date when you and the person you are with are mature. dating an immature person is NOT worth your time.

As with every relationship question, the answer is different for everyone.
The reason for this is simple: we all mature at different rates, and we all go through different experiences.

So here's the answer

Some people consider dating as "practice" for a more serious relationship. If you agree with that, then fine.
If you don't, then stay away from relationships with those people unless you are willing to deal with lots and lots of immaturity and selfishness ;p

When you're in highschool, you're more mature (most of the time) and its a new experience, high school is the time for new experiences, like when you get your first car, your first job, yeah
