I believe that 11-year-olds are far too young to engage in dating behaviors.
I would not belittle or embarrass your daughter by making fun of her sudden attraction to "the guys at school," but I would set clear dating guidelines at this time.

The usual games of he’s-my-boyfriend seem to have morphed into dating, with children – and that’s what they are children – going out on evening dates as couples. When I was at primary school I was one of the rare kids who was blithely unaware of the pretend boyfriend/ girlfriend scenarios going on around me.

Although your daughter may look years older than her age, her emotional intelligence, reasoning, and judgment have a long way to go to catch up to her body.
