what are the Mormon “rules” for dating?
I know rules isn’t the right word to use but I can’t think of it. I know you have to be 16 but what else is there I want to be a perfect date for my friend who is about to turn 16 in two months

Right here: https://www.lds.org/youth/for-the-strength-of-youth/dating?lang=eng
And “guidelines” would be the right word for it =)
So the most important things you should take out of that is this:
1) date in groups or double date
2) Don’t do anything that would be against his other standards while on the date. The most important ones, are about sexual purity: https://www.lds.org/youth/for-the-strength-of-youth/sexual-purity?lang=eng It may also be good to look at the other standards in other areas: https://www.lds.org/youth/for-the-strength-of-youth?lang=eng
3) Have clean and wholesome fun!
4) I don’t think it mentioned this in the standards for dating, but it does in the topic called “dress and appearance”. Dress modestly when you date him. You can read more if you go to that section in the last link I provided.
