It would be far better if you defined what you meant by "early dating"
What age forms the early dating? 15 - 18? 18 - 21?
11 - 14?
People date are several stages some peoples early dating might seem old to others
I'm going to assume that you are in your early twenties
You get a lot of time to understand the other people
You can get to know yourself much better.
You get know about relationships and the female species in general
You can learn from mistakes. Early twenties is the time of making mistakes!
You wont have time for yourself.
You want have time to spend with male friends and do a lot of crazy things.
