Good luck and you can be his friend, unless your mom says no.
When I was 21, I randomly set my dating age cap at 30, and it’s sort of stuck there ever since. If Jordan Catalano ever showed any glimmer of interest, well.
My 12 year old daughter has asked me when she can start dating.
They usually hasten to inform me, “All his (her) friends are dating.” My quick answer is: When they’re married, and only with their spouse. Now back in the old days — the early 1980s — you met resistance for such a decision mainly from the children. You can’t wrap a moral bubble around them; they have to deal with life. A recent survey suggested that if a child has a first date between the ages of 11 and 13, he or she has a 90% probability of being sexually active during senior year in high school. Key factors to consider in granting any type of dating freedom are your child’s: • moral maturity • independence of thought • history of conduct in other social settings • strength of will • social judgment • choice of friends • responsibility toward schoolwork • respect for authority.I will suggest that women younger than 25 take advantage of the greatest men-meeting opportunities on the planet.It is during this time of life that women attend college, hang out with old friends from high school and go to the most parties and events.By the way, my husband was a late bloomer and started dating at 19.

Seriously, dating age depends upon all kinds of factors, and varies from child to child, even within the same family. Never consider your neighborhood’s “average age” when making your decision. Parents used to expect instinctively to be challenged by their kids, especially in judgments of how fast one should grow up. If you make kids too different, they’ll feel like weirdos who don’t fit in. First date at age 14 leads to a 50% chance; first date at age 16, 20% chance. I figure if I make the list long enough, my kids won’t be eligible to date until they move out.
