Well most of the times a person needs to be 18 or older. Like for example Match.com you need to be 18 or older. So yeah..

Depends. Most premium, paying sites you will have to be 18 or older. The cheesy, "teen" dating sites like Zoosk, singles.net, etc. are free and are mostly for teens.

If I may add/ask, why are you interested in going online to meet women? It is not really the ideal way to go. Also, most of those sites (the premium ones) are people looking for serious relationships and much older than you are. I highly doubt you would want to settle down at your age and date a 30ish year old who is damaged goods (no offense).

Take my advice, don't go down that path and blow your money. Do it the old fashioned way. Find a gal you know or see and take her for ice cream.

I would be careful whatever site you pick. There are some freaks out there. The last thing you want to show up is some guy and his van loaded with ropes etc.

Just avoid sites where you have to keep buying "points" in order to receive and/or exchange emails with other users. Many of those "people" could just be part of the scam to get as much money out of you as they can by leading you on without being able to meet them.

Don't use your real name or address and make sure you google about the sites at first (check with the Better Business Bureau, too) toi see if they are on the up and up.

At your age, I'd say you'd have better luck with Craiglist personals or else just go to parties and meet people that way.
