Statements like this are common when I talk to people about our son, the one boy out of our five children. Blanketed with three older sisters and a younger one.

Contrary to the words he hears from outsiders, I’d like to think he does have a chance—a great chance, actually. In a few more short years, it will be something else entirely. I joke now that you can’t date until you’re 30, but I’m sure reality will be much different. And looking back on my own dating life, there are 15 things I wish I knew then.
My son is not interested in girls, yet. When girls started flirting with me, it scared me. Another girl would pass me notes about how cute I was—red lipstick left a lip-shaped smudge below her signature. Then there were the small groups of girls that would look in my direction and giggle. It all seemed strange to me. Later, I learned from boys who had more social intelligence than me that female flirting was an invitation to respond with similar gestures.

The prospect of your teen starting to date is naturally unnerving. It’s easy to fear your child getting hurt, getting in over their head, being manipulated or heartbroken , and especially, growing up and leaving the nest. But as uncomfortable or scary as it may feel to consider your child with a romantic life, remember that this is a normal, healthy, and necessary part of any young adult’s emotional development. But what exactly does teen dating even look like these days?

To help you navigate this unfamiliar territory, there are five essential truths every parent should know about the teen dating scene. While some teens will start dating earlier than others, romantic interests are normal and healthy during adolescence.
