Do we really need to be ready? Its not like we are preparing for war.

Well, when you meet that young-man or woman that sweeps you off your feet. Then you can start dating. The only advantage is if during your single period, you worked on your weaknesses and make yourself a Mr/Mrs right for someone.

There are some stages you should attain,age wise i think 16 17 is whats reigning in Nigeria now but its got a lot do with maturity,a 17 old gal may be more matured and more intelligent than a 19year old gurl,but if you find the right partner,you just fall but thats definitely not by relying on looks and dressing because thats whats most young ladies do.

Try to know when one is trying to learn you. Those words might just be to learn you, know your temperament.

Some feel that you are ready to date when you are mature enough to do the following:

1. Know 3, 5 or 10 best things about yourself that you, friends or family really admire and be prepared to talk about it.

2. Know what you'd like to gain from a date or new relationship and are you ready for it today.

3. Communicate - can you talk about what interests you and listen to what interests others.

4. Over X's easy - you're not sulking, pissed-off, speaking hateful or about to cry when something about an X comes up.

5. Emotionally comfortable or secure with yourself - your date may ask you questions or say unflattering words.

What do you think about this?

Sir G. P.

Dating differs with the gender of the person.

For guys, I'll agree with you, but for female, they should date in time so as not to fall into problems; "you will understand".  I know of girl who refused dating any  man atleast on a courtship purpose till she was finally in her law school. This girl could not get one when she graduated from her Law school. Men seeing this beautiful brillant girl felt she was engaged and those that could find out that she wasn't thought of the girl's family background or her individual life that scared guys from nearing her. This girl now is in advertisement, doesn't mind marrying a truck-pusher or person from any tribe, just to get married.

Babes, be wise.

u date when u r ready its necessarily not when u want to get married,date and court at the same time,it helps a lot.Dating doesnt have to be with money and material things.

One starts dating when he/she is ready for marriage.

Dating is for those that are ready to go to the alter in no distant time.

It is for the matured people not for kids.

I have a friend who is unwilling to date, or to even look until he moves out of his parent's place and has a job with a steady income.

Would that be a factor that you look to before you start to date? Or are guys and girls different in this way?

When you find someone that you feel is someone you can date. It's just like a clicky.. you just get attracted, and you feel, Okay... I can date him/her. We seem to attract. And also when your parents allow you to date.
