Dan and Jennifer discuss the best age for your first committed relationship. People in their mid-teens are too young to be in a long distance relationship, a committed relationship or any kind of serious relationship. People aren't ready for serious, committed relationships until they're in their late twenties. At that age, people's bodies are finished growing, their brains are finished developing and they're more emotionally mature. People in their late twenties know what they want and who they are. Before that age, people are trying new things and figuring out what they want so it's hard for them to commit to something like a relationship long term.
