Before all of the broken hearts, the rejections, the break ups, and the heartaches, you likely once had a very pure and innocent perception on dating. Told from the most organic source, Rink Works‘s article on kids’ ideas about love just might make your eyes water. Here are the top picked quotes from kids with the most honest outlook on dating itself.

When Kids Were Asked About Dating 

  • “Dates are for having fun, and people should use them to get to know each other. Even boys have something to say if you listen long enough.” Lynnette, age 8
  • “One way is to take the girl out to eat. Make sure it’s something she likes to eat. French fries usually works for me.”  Bart, age 9
  • “You got to find somebody who likes the same stuff. Like if you like sports, she should like it that you like sports, and she should keep the chips and dip coming.” Allan, age 10

When Asked About Kissing

  • “The rules goes like this: if you kiss someone, then you should marry her and have kids with her. It’s the right thing to do.” Howard, age 8
  • “You should never kiss a girl unless you have enough bucks to buy her a big ring and her own VCR, ’cause she’ll want to have videos of the wedding.” Jim, age 10
  • “If it’s your mother, you can kiss her anytime. But if it’s a new person, you have to ask permission.” Roger, age 6
  • “I know one reason kissing was created. It makes you feel warm all over, and they didn’t always have electric heat or fireplaces or even stoves in their houses.” Gina, age 8

When Asked How They Feel When They Like Someone

  • “‘Hey, Baby, I Don’t Like Girls, But I’m Willing To Forget You Are One!'” Will, age 7

When Asked About Holding Hands

  • “They are just practicing for when they might have to walk down the aisle someday and do the holy matchimony thing.” John, age 9
  • “They want to make sure their rings don’t fall off, because they paid good money for them.” Gavin, age 8

When Asked About Beauty

  • “It isn’t always how you look. Look at me. I’m handsome like anything, and I haven’t got anybody to marry me yet.”  Brian, age 7
