Teenage Love?

More by this author
Do you believe in love in high school? Could it possibly exist?

No way, kids don't know what true love is... But, how many people do you know that dated in high school that are currently married and happy? I personally know about 4 couples very very well that are now happy after being high school sweethearts. Did they just like each other as teens and grow to love each other? When did the "like" change to "love?" In college? Age 21? 22?23? Or could they possibly have loved each other all along?

How can you put an age on love?

I, personally, believe in teenage love. I truly think it exists. Adults that did not fall in love till they were, in fact, adults, will most likely dismiss it. However, some - like my mother, for instance - do not dismiss teenage love. Do you?

i think that it depends on who the person is and if they have a big heart and that the couple fall in love with each other the first day that they meet or talk to each other

 do believe in teenage love. Not because I myself am a teenager, I believe that one person is made perfectly for you and god will grace you with finding that person when you yourself are ready for them.

Nice!  I totally agree.  Teenagers are able to love just as much as adults.  Maybe even more.  There isn't an age limit on love.  It happens when it happens.  Yes, it does depend on maturity level, but sometimes you need that teen to experience love in order for them to grow up.

 thare is nothing that says teens can't be in love. the problem is that theywach shows that often have people that "hit" on people just caz thare "hot". teen love would be more abundint,realy love,if you liked a person for there i'm not saying that the few of you that are in love can't admiare the person your in love with phisical aperince but make shure you also like them.

In my opinion, teen love is not wrong when they see the limit. Some special feeling as a student makes you happy and have recognization about love, your life, your responsibility... If you're in love (actually "crush"), just take it easy, don't worry about anything. Just be yourself, not regret. My crushes in high school were so kute, we just be friends, took care of each other. Looking at his face, his smile make me feel so great. Althogh we're now on the different ways, we still respect each o... (more »)

I think it is possible. I myself thought i loved someone but it was merel infatuation. I think you merely have to let it happen in it's own time. If it dosent happen, it dosent. Love, however...hmm, the meaning of it seems to escape me. I suppose i have never experienced it, and i suppose the CAN make it hard for me to say much about it. But teenage love is wholly possible, simply because we're all human. We may not understand it, but it's there in our hearts.

i personally beleave in teen love. my mom and dad dated since they were in high school and a little before and they never stopped loving each other. The proble today is some teens think there in love or are in love with the thought of being in love, so its rare today but it can happen.

I do believe in teenage love. Not because I myself am a teenager, I believe that one person is made perfectly for you ( soulmate ) and god will grace you with finding that person when you yourself are ready for them.
