I came across this post and realized how grateful I am for the counsel not to date until you're 16. I tried to teach this in my family and they all waited until 16 or later to date. I appreciate the insight in this post of why waiting until 16 to date is such good advice. I am grateful to have my actions validated by well thought out posts like this.
