When did dating start
I think that for dating where one person is picking the other up, 16 is obvious because that is the driving age.
But my personal opinion is that if they want to go to a movie or other activity together, and a parent will drop them off and pick them up from that activity, I think 13 or 14 is perfectly Ok.
My husband and I have been discussing the answer to our daughter's question and we just don't know the right answer.

My 12 year old daughter has asked me when she can start dating.
Let's just say that I was sort of a goody two shoes and didn't want to upset my parents. I am now a mother of a 12 year old daughter and a 10 year old son.
Make sure to act interested but not too interested in your teen's dating life with the hope that they will open up to you if they run into difficulties. Friends are marginally ok but not romance of any sort. If they don't experiment, they won't know how a relationship works in the real world.
They may have more trouble expressing their feelings. I believe that kids should be able to start "dating" at ages 13 or 14, if they want to.
