As I said in probably the last chapter, I am using voice speak and am probably going to be talking about the same subject. What I have noticed is that a lot of people are dating at around 12 years old and it surprises me.
My opinion on this, though you might not want to hear it, is simple. If you don't want to marry them in the next 2 to 5 years, which is normally how long a relationship lasts, you just shouldn't date them. I don't know if this is true, but some people may be really tempted to date someone even if they are both really young. If you are 12 years old and you date someone that is also 12, that means that you may want to marry them when you are 14 or 17 years old, which is really young to start a new life. You still have to go through college and maybe even high school, and being married would not help that. Don't forget the fact that 14 years old may be illegal in some countries to marry.
So basically what I'm trying to say is that people should start dating when they think that they are ready to marry someone. If you don't think you are going to marry them or you don't want to marry them don't date them. I know this may have been a really long chapter to read, and I'm sorry, but I thought I just like to put that out there because it's just been a problem for me and other people of the younger generation that are in their teenage years, and some of them may not be in high school yet.
