Personally I don't believe there's an age when you can actually say to start looking for someone serious. And serious to me is very long term - like marriage, and kids, and till the whole death to us part. Select age and gender to cast your vote: The vast majority of first loves never make it past high school. I honestly don't think there really is a set age as to when serious dating begins. Some people act older or younger than there actual age.
At what age do you start 'serious' dating?

Just keep an eye on your teens, and let them know they can come to you if they need you.
