haha I remember my 1st grade "boyfriend". So hilarious how we had fake weddings on the playground during recess. Lots of fun when your only like 6 and 7.
14 is definitely not too young IMO. I am 15 and have had some serious(not to serious but pretty good) relationships before. I just don't get so emotionally attached to them as most people do which I find a good thing right now and also a bad thing. There isn't a right or wrong age to dating. You just have to be able to handle it mentally and those who can't, find out sooner or later.
And I promise you Maddy, coming from a freshman in HS, it is a hundred times different then middle school and so many more people to meet!
