Yeah, I think you are too young to date. You're in the 8th grade. I wasn't allowed to date in high school and wished I could have but I understand why my parents didn't let me. There's nothing wrong with dating though. You should just be a little older...a couple of years. Someone recommended 16 or 17...I think 17 is a good age because by then you know a little more and are becoming a young adult.
about to turn 14 soon, and to me, it depends on what your definition of dating is. I've had a couple of really good relationships since 6th grade, so if you know what you want in a relationship, go for it. Make sure you know what you want in a guy first before you make any advances, or else you'll wind up in a weird, distant relationship. Trust me; hit a few brick walls in dating.
Let me tell you something. Enjoy being young and in your teenage years. Play sports and enjoy hobbies and friends.
Once you start dating you have to deal with the 14 year old boy. They are only after one thing. If you think I am wrong, ask him if he wants to see your breasts.
..he can't help himself. Why even put yourself through this at this age? If kids at school make fun of you for not having a boyfriend or not kissing/hooking up with a boy yet...tell them you don't want diseases like they are going to have. Dating is a dark dark road unless you have a plan and goal.
