At my school people who wear makeup are considered desperate and uncool but kids who date are the coolest of the cool. I think that's pretty messed up. You should only date someone if you really like them and plan on being with them for a while, and if that is at the age of 11 or 12, so be it.
dating is good, how else are you supposed to learn and develop socially if you don't have some introduction. Nothing serious, just an intro to let yourself have some fun with friends and others that mean the most to you!
If you are under the age of 12 you don't need to wear makeup. Maybe a little older. And if you are under the age of 16 you don't need to date. It's pointless and most of the time it is Jena at because these kids think that dating is cool. It's not when you don't plan to stay with the person.
