What are the legal age limits for dating?

My parents keep telling me I am not old enough to date.

There is no legal age limit for dating. There is a legal age limit for voting or drinking alcohol. Dating is more of a parental discretion based on your maturity.

There is no legal age limit for dating, as far as spending time with a person of the opposite gender doing activities together. However, if it goes beyond dating to sexual contact that's when age becomes a factor.

In the United States there are no particular age limits for dating itself, but there are age restrictions on curfew and sexual contact. Dating age limits are more of a house rule... while your parents want you to wait until you're 16, for example, other parents may expect their children to wait until 18.

There is no actually legal age you get to start dating. However most states do impose a law so that a person has to be of a certain age to consent. For example some states say you have to be a certain age to date someone above a certain age or the older person could face statutory rape charges.
