My first girlfriend was in 6th grade, but since I am a guy, I can tell you that the one thing that any guy at any age appreciates is to be asked out in private, whether, its after class or before class, when none of their friends are around, or when your hanging out with him and its just you and him, because if his friends are around him, he is going to be say something he doesn't want to say because he wants to look cool in front of his friends. From, Billy YES, middle school is WAY too young for dating!! You have your whole life ahead of you, why would you want to be tied to another person any sooner than you have too? Have slumber parties and stay up all night talking to your friends about boys, but don't date them yet! They are on a total different maturity level then you and will only cause you drama.

I had a girlfriend on my first day of kindergarten! I think its natural to be into a guy and want to flirt with him, but middle school is a weird time.I am not sure why this is the case but I have some ideas.Dating can be quite confusing and distracting for young teens.Perhaps the early daters neglect friendships and lack a necessary support group of friends to see them through all of the years of middle school and high school.We all have had and continue to have friends who drop us when they are in a dating relationship.
