So much of our teens’ social life happens online that, while older generations may balk at the idea of online dating, teens don’t bat an eyelash when trying out a dating app to meet people.

Many are looking for actual dates, while some teenagers are merely testing boundaries, or attempting to feel mature by seeking out someone online that is outside their normal peer group.

One of the most popular dating apps, Tinder, is geared toward adults, but admits that 7 percent of it’s users are between the ages of 13 and 17.

Other online dating sites, like Skout, have dedicated teens-only sections where teens can interact with others in their peer group—although there is no official age verification.

For teens, intimate relationships are incredibly important.
