Can I have a boyfriend at 12?

Yes, you can, but you should be responsible if you decide to have a boyfriend! Everyone that says you shouldn’t have a boyfriend is probably thinking about weird things like kissing and sleeping together, and yea both things aren’t normal at this age and you shouldn’t do those, but if you don’t do it you still can have a boyfriend. Having a boyfriend isn’t focused on the “lewd pleasure” it should be focused on having someone close, to have fun with, and to talk about problems.

It’s probably not a person you will spend the rest of your life with but, someone even more than a friend, but remember that you shouldn’t break that barrier of “lewd things”, and wait with those until you will be a bit older.

Show your parents that you are a responsible person, that will pay off later! But having your first date is totally fine because that date won’t differ from a normal meeting with friends, and that’s good.

What to with my boyfriend at 16?

When you’re a bit older, like 16 then you have a lot more to do, especially girls at your age tend to have older boyfriends, so if your boyfriend is currently above 18 you will have a lot of opportunities to do, like getting into his car a taking a journey to the lake, or some other romantic place.

In summary – How old should you be to have a boyfriend?

The average age for girls to have a first date is 12 but don’t be worried if you didn’t have any date yet! It’s not something that you should be sad about, most of those “dates” at that age are nothing special, they will look like normal meeting with your friends so you are not missing anything if you still didn’t have your first date.

Even when it comes to having a boyfriend, at that age, a boyfriend means “a good friend of the opposite gender”, you won’t be able to do much, and at that age having a boyfriend is just a simple way to show off around your friends.


Remember that being in a relationship isn’t about pleasure, but it should be something you want to put your soul and heart into. Most adults are guided by the q

uestion “Do I want to spend the rest of my life with that person?”.

So you should be responsible and don’t fall into the cool kids’ trap, and be above that! Don’t let them guide your life, because you’re the person in charge of your own life, and at that moment you should hang out with your closest friends that you can rely on and have fun!
