131, 51 had a point. usually first dates are for getting to know each other before title 'boyfriend/girlfriend' comes. But, OP is younger so there was probably note passing with an option to circle yes or no and they hung out at each others houses and this is their first time actually going out - 'date'.

Just because its their first date doesent mean they cant be boyfriend and girlfriend. Me and my gorlfriend started going out like a month before we went on a real dinner date. She didnt say she jusy met him.

it sounded wrong, but they were thinking the same as you, that it cant be your 'boyfriend' if its your first date. I agree with all this, 15 is the youngest people should date, but how did you "go out to dinner" at 15... does that mean his family took her with them to friendlys and the 2 kids got their own little table?? How did he drive her to the restaurant? Im guessing he's older than 15 and in that case I don't blame the father. If I had a daughter I would be so protective of letting some idiot teenager take advantage. Teen girls are so dumb and think they are in love every week of their life, its way too easy. I think once you can drive you can date, otherwise its just not real. You aren't independent enough to really date

#200... 15 year olds can drive. there's this thing called a hardship.. albeit, it's only supposed to be used for school, work, church, and the like. but also, the boy's parents or a sibling could have drove them. restaurants don't refuse service to you people. if you can pay, they'll serve you.

15 is too young? wow some country's are so immature, the legal age of marriage and sexual consent here is 16, I think 15 is a little late to develop relationship skills for current or future partners :P most of my school started dating at 11 :D

His house, his rules. If he thinks you're too young, it's probably because he cares about what you're getting into. Might seem harsh to you, but for him it's more about easing you into dating and learning how to have relationships. Don't rebel just to rebel -- you might find yourself pregnant just to spite him. Probably not a wise choice.

ok first 94 I'm Mormon and yes we are advised not to date until we are 16 for reasons that match a lot of what people are saying here. I admit I'm 14 almost 15 and at this age with "boyfriends and girlfriends" its so much different than real dating that's why OP is already "dating" him on the first date. I personally am VERY maturefir my age and admit I have had a "boyfriend" but at my ge usually "dating" is getting dropped off at the movies with a ton of friends but the reason I have decided to stop and really obey my religion is because I'm getting into high school and older like OP it does start being real dates and older guys which means cars and driving places dinner etc. so I haw to wait until I'm 16 but the small really dumb "relationships" I have been in have roughy me a lot. so ya OP I kinda say your life sucks that is embarassing but if he likes her a lot he will understand. and YDI for being a rebel and leaving when your dad said no. (:

Everyone's making it seem like 15 is so young... that's grade ten for most people. I'm turning 15 in a few weeks, yet I have friends who have been dating the same people for over a year now. Just because you are young does not mean you are immature.

  ATLforever7  |  6

Uhm wow. I'm 14 and have been dating the same guy for about 7 months. We've known each other since 2nd grade I don't "fall in love every two weeks". We don't get dropped off by either of our parents and we have a grasp on reality, meaning we don't have this crazy fantasy about love and marriage and babies. My father trusts me and knows I'm not stupid or reckless.

Please, explain to me why when we turn 16 or 17 or whatever age you're stating is when we should date is correct? On my 16th birthday, will I suddenly wake up and have new emotions? Will I become more mature and all of the sudden have new-found insight on life and love? No. When you feel ready and you feel like you're mature enough, you can date. That's my policy, and I see no flaws with it. I'm 15-years-old, turning 16 next month, and I've been dating my girlfriend for almost two years. I've taken her out to eat, just me and her to a nice restaurant, before. Just because we're young, doesn't mean we can't feel love. Obviously if you think we're too young, then you haven't felt love. Since when do my emotions run parallel with my age? Ignorant people like this really grind my gears. Age does not equal maturity. Maturity equals maturity. Nothing but your own life and how you deal with it can influence that. If you think I'm too young, then you obviously never had a highschool sweetheart. That's your loss. Don't take it out on today's youth. And if you did have a highschool sweetheart, don't be a hypocrite. Parents call it "Steering from my mistakes." I call it hypocracy. Let us learn for ourselves.

LMFAO at all the idiots on here, 'oh of course I dated at 15, I banged 5 dudes before I was 10, but no no no YOU shouldn't date at 15. I would know better I'm 25...' please give me a break you fucking idiots. BTW OP next time say you're meeting up with friends, but just actually meet up with your boyfriend, it avoids all those annoying things from your parents like 'well I want to meet this young man'

389 In relation to the average human life span, yes, but I meant it more in relation to maturity. By the time you're 15 you should be "old enough" to be in a serious relationship if you'd like. Just because you are physically "young" doesn't mean that you are not mature. Personally I find those relationships where it's like "omg I love you" after a week kinda stupid, but not everyone is like that. Usually those short term ones are with kids who are 12/13. I personally have not had a boyfriend, but it's not because I feel I'm too young, it's because I don't want to be a part of a weeklong relationship, and I'm waiting for the right person.

405 - spoken like a true ignorant teen.. look I'm 22.. and I didn't know a damn thing about relationships when I was 15. I thought I did and I also thought my parents were wrong. but looking back now. they have been right the entire time! even today! so please.. tell someone about real love and "feelings" when you're older bc age does equal maturity.. there is no such thing as a mature 15 year old. you're too naive and stupid.

  calbabe96  |  5

are you kidding me? I think it's stupid that you're calling out a fifteen year old over the Internet. You don't know what he feels therefore you cannot judge him. Age equals maturity? you're 22 and you sound like an idiot. Just because young love didn't work out in your life doesn't mean it's wrong. let others live. btw- I'm 15 and am in a healthy and happy relationship. good day mam.

Look at the STI and STD rates in many countries. One of the prime ways to develop cervical cancer? Becoming sexually active too young. I believe 15 is an age they throw out even. It's not good for teens to date, and certainly not that young. Their hormones are raging, they will make mistakes and those mistakes can cost them a lot. When you really think about it their bodies are not fully developed, nor are their brains. They are kids, and kids do not need to date. I just wish at some point I had had more involved parents, not an absentee and a psycho. She should be thankful her family is there even during the embarrassing times like that.

I agree with 405 about 15 year olds being able to date as long as they do it maturely. I'm 16 right now and dated a guy last year. He wasn't very mature about it, hence why I'm not dating him anymore. I don't feel that within a year I've gained a ton of more information about relationships, so I've no idea why there's 20-25 year olds stating that it's the okay age to start dating. I was very well informed about relationships, sex, etc from my parents before I dated and I used that information. Although the "decision making" part of a teenager's brain isn't fully developed, some of us can make mature decisions despite it.

To me, some teens are more mature than others. I'm only a teen myself, and so I see plenty of these 2 week relationships. But I, and my girlfriend have been dating for almost 3 months now. We never fight, and are happy with each other. So I think it's fine for teens to date, as long as they are ready for it, and mature enough for it.

Wow so funny to listen to people like you. How mature someone is depends so so much on the person and how they were raised. I met my first boyfriend when I was 15 and we are still together now 3 years later. Funny though I would say the same thing about most 15 year olds I know. But you never know..

Remember at that age all you had to do to be some ones boy/girlfriend was say 'do you want to go out?' and boom. Instant boyfriend. I thought it was stupid at that age too but that's how it works.

It could've been both. My boyfriend and I live several hours away and don't have/aren't old enough to get licenses, so we were together almost two months before we had our first date.

how did you meet and start "dating" your boyfriend who lives hours away if you both are not old enough to drive? this baffles me, did you meet on craigslist?

Reply

He could've very easily been both. My boyfriend and I met when we were 12(In school), and I was terrified to tell my parents, so we didn't go on a single 'date' until a year later. We went bowling once as a group of like 10 and to the fair as a group of 5. But we didn't have an actual date until like a year of dating. And when we did, that was my first date.

# 9: You seem to be a slut, I agree with the person who mentioned the connotations of your user name. Your father is right to be concerned. OP: I clicked YDI because your grammar is terrible. Fix it, please. But I'm very sorry your date was ruined, so FYL as well.

@64 a bit of a jump from a username with the words "playboybunny" to "you seem to be a slut" wouldnt you say? so your profile states: I don't put up with bullshit and I think that some people should treat others a hell of a lot better. ...fucking hypocrite. by the way, theres no backslashes in 'don't'.

Also, I'm 19 now. But then again, not so sure how my age comes into play at all. I do believe I was sixteen once upon a time, and dealt with all of the stupidity/superiority complexes associated with the age, so I think I can judge just a tid bit. But hell, I'm just a stoner, right. Asshole.

Reply

Agreed. Also from the way this is worded I get the feeling that you didn't run this by your parents before you went on the date. You might find things will work out smoother if you do... I'm a parent and though I might let my kids go on a date when they're 15 I would never allow them to do so behind my back. Trust is important between parent and child, you violated that trust.

Reply

Trust isn't mutually important between parent and child. It's expected that kids/teens earn and keep their parents' trust, but not the other way around. While I get that it's still for the protection of the kid, it's still fucked up and sending the wrong message v

#72: First, the dashes are a glitch from this website. I've tried fixing it, nothing has worked. Boo hoo. Second, calm down, I'm sticking to my opinion that the name is slutty. That's not treating her badly, that's stating my thoughts on the matter. Last, this is me not putting up with bullshit. (:

Give the girl a break,she's only 15.That's how the world works now a days when you're that age...When I was in high school,I knew plenty of couples who never actually went out on a date,but spent every waking moment with them otherwise.

I my first date was with my boyfriend after he asked me to be his girlfriend. I'm 15. But, another factor for it was that I was sick for like two weeks and unable to actually go anywhere at the time but he was my friend and we had hung out other times. He did eventually make it up and bring me on a date though.

302- When you kids actually contribute to this world and become productive members of society, then maybe you will be rewarded for hard work. No one owes you anything. It's sad if you think otherwise. Mommy and daddy won't always be around to hand you everything on that silver platter.

wait what?? how does dating and calling eachother instantly boyfriend and girlfriend mean we're snotty little brats? not all kids have everything handed to them in a "silver platter" by mommy and daddy. not all kids are like that unfortunately for you. I'm 13 and have a job does that sound like a silver platter to you? a lot of kids don't even have a mommy and daddy to give them anythig so be queit and stop judging today's youth because your not any better because your a grown ass adult (by the sounds of your comment) and your trash talking kids. o wow ur so much better . not

I've been dating my boyfriend for nearly a year now, and we haven't gone on our first date yet. My Mom says that if we go out, we have to have friends with us because we are 14. She says we can single date at 15-16.
