Well...it depends on the maturity of th eindividual. Still, to answer, later. I'm 15 and am not yet dating and don't plan on it for another year or so...at this age, guys are jerks and people my age should wait until we're older. Why wait? The younger you are when you atart dating, the more vulnerable and trusting you are. With the creeps in this world, do you want to be out among that by age 14? Most of my frinds are dating already, but I'm going to wait - let common sense take over for awhile.
