Can a 16 year old date a 10-12 year old ?

    Please no. A 10-12 year old is nowhere near ready to date regardless of what they say.

    Girlfriends at your age are pretty much a waste of time because only about two percent of high school sweethearts who marry end up having a fifty year marriage. Your focus right now should be on being the best possible student so that one day you can get a good job that you enjoy doing.

    May I suggest that the first question to ask yourself when considering whether or not to date someone is, “Is this person a strong person?” If they’re not, no matter how much you like them, how much they like you, or how “cute” or “hot” they are, - please don’t date them. A strong person has good character (honesty, integrity, trustworthiness), displays a positive attitude (cheerful, caring, friendly, forgiving, helpful, and respectful), fulfills their responsibilities (for handling people who are pains in a positive way, for always trying to make a good choice, for taking care of themselves, for serving others), gives their best effort, and demonstrates self-control (of their body, anger, mouth and money).

    My suggestion is that you put in the effort necessary to become a strong person (if you’re not already) and eventually look for this type of girl (otherwise you’re setting yourself up for a broken heart). Unfortunately this type of woman is difficult to find - but save yourself the heartache and don’t settle for less.

    (Please remember that you eventually want a 50 or 60 year marriage - not a 5 or 10 year marriage.)

    Hope this helps!

    PS Strong men attract strong women like magnets (as well as weak women - so be careful). The best way to get to know a strong woman without dating is to participate in the activities of a community service or a school organization.

    NO - as soon as the boy or girl passes the age of 18 then yes as you will be 22 and they will be 18

    Why not? You probably should have a chaperone (sp) though. Squido
