Mormon rules on dating
The two people aren’t “a couple” or “an item,” and they don’t refer to each other as a “boyfriend” or “girlfriend.” They don’t pair off. This is the kind of dating the Church encourages you to do after you turn 16.
You should put aside a need to find a “one and only.” If you’re dating casually, you don’t expect a relationship to become a romance.
LDS youth are counseled to not date until they are at least 16 years old.For decades, prophets have preached that youth who are in no position to marry should not pair off exclusively.
