Question: What is the right age to have a boyfriend?

Appropriate age for dating? Experts recommend ages 16 and 17 is the ideal age to start dating, along with observing how mature your child is and how well they handle responsibilities.

What is the correct age to have a boyfriend?

Consider their emotional maturity and sense of responsibility. For many kids, 16 seems to be an appropriate age, but it may be entirely suitable for a mature 15-year-old to go on a date, or to make your immature 16-year-old wait a year or two. You can also consider what other parents are doing.

Is it OK for an 11 year old to have a boyfriend?

An 11-year-old should not have a boyfriend or girlfriend. Though some may look physically adult at such a young age, tweens do not have the ability to handle the emotional decisions that accompany romantic relationships.
