Gay/Bi child dating rules?!

I’m a parent of two girls, one gay and one bi. My husband and I totally support them and we have no issues with who they are. They are getting to dating age now (teens), and I’m stuck. What rules do you lay down for dating or relations with other girls (or boys, for that matter)? For example, when I started being of dating age, I wasn’t allowed to close the door if a boy was with me in my room and him spending the night was absolutely forbidden. If I follow those rules, there are no more sleepovers, GS campouts, giggling with friends behind closed doors. Of course that doesn’t make sense. But I want to lay down some rules that are clear and fair so they can join the dating game safely.

Does anyone know of any resources out there? Advice from those who’ve negotiated this age already? Thanks for your help! 🙂
