is it normal for someone to start talking to you about dating if you are only sixteen (and a girl)January 30, 2011 3:25 am at 3:25 am #735369☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
Normal? Yes. Productive? No.January 30, 2011 3:36 am at 3:36 am #735370mikehall12382Member
if someone starts to thinking it, you can start talking about it, but you don’t have to act on it…January 30, 2011 3:45 am at 3:45 am #735371maynishMember
yes get married young.. avoid being in the shidduch crisis. and remember the older you get the more picky . so settle down early in life.January 30, 2011 4:18 am at 4:18 am #735372chayav inish livisumayParticipant
its a total waste of time because you will go to seminary in between now and when you start dating, and you might change completelyJanuary 30, 2011 4:45 am at 4:45 am #735373

It may not be the norm, But everything is possible!January 30, 2011 6:10 am at 6:10 am #735378yossi z.Member
Yoyo56: the term “in the parsha” is used instead of are you on the dating scene (don’t ask me why because I don’t know) but from your original post I would assume not (and to answer your question, depending on the circles would depend if it is “normal.” for example there are certain chassidim amongst whom it is quite common to find the girls getting married at or around 16)
Oh and no one should be talking to the involved parties unless there is going to be something lemaaseh (a date) happening (that mistake was made by me but thankfully it was caught and taken care of)February 2, 2011 9:57 pm at 9:57 pm #735379aries2756Participant
Who would the “someone” be? Are your parents speaking to you, a 16 year old, about dating? Are they preparing you for the future?
Anyone else speaking to you about dating would be inappropriate and should be directed to your parents. What I would advise you to do is simply say “I am only 16 and not in the parsha yet.”February 2, 2011 11:35 pm at 11:35 pm #735380bptParticipant
Cut to the chase, Yoyo.
Ask them how much $$$ they are offering. Then ask for 20% more, just to see if they’re serious.
(its the only answer that’s appropriate to the question)
Unless, the talk is along the lines of “you need to start acting like a young adult, becuase sooner than you think, you’ll be in shidduchim”
But real shidduch talk? At 16?
Gimmie a break.
