Can a 16 year old be in love?

You!

From the responses to another one of my questions, it seems that many people think that teenagers can't fall in love. And even if they do, that it will not last.
Do you think that teen relationships can be true love?
If the answer is no, please respond with an explanation! (:

    At 16 lust or infatuation is the norm. Nevertheless, once in a while....

    True love is so grand but don't rush it, it's hard but ... find out what you don't want first than along the way if you find what you do want, well...

    Yes. The heart wants what the heart wants. Love is like WiFi and our heart and mind are the box. As long as theirs a phone connection,the love flows. But once you pull the plug, Itś all over. If you want it to work, don´t pull the plug.

    But never expect to grow old with the person you are in love with. You'll meet a jillion new people when you get out of prison and into the real world.

    Well you can't really help wanting to grow old with the person you're in love with lol But there's a difference between that and being 100% sure enough to planning your life with them at such a young age (:

    Amen!! I think before anyone gets married they need to live on their own for 3 years, self supporting. That gives a person a little bit of reality and hopefully some ambition to make a marriage work.

    I definitely agree that couples should live together before marriage! I dunno about on their own for 3 years, but I guess it depends on the person and their partner. I'm sure it'd be very beneficial, though (:

    Those raging hormones make the brain and heart run in overdrive. It may not be lasting, or "the real thing", but to the 16 yo it's real. Even at my age I can remember.

    Again, it is possible. Through my personal understanding of love, it is incredibly unlikely that you, or any single 16 year old is in love, though. Possible, not very likely.

    There is no age limit to being in love. However, perhaps there should be a speed limit. . . slow down. You have the rest of your life ahead of you. :?)

    It's not like falling in love automatically makes me wanna get hitched and leave the rest of my life behind lol Talking about myself, personally, it's not like I asked for it. It found me first...

    Believe me love is a much stronger tether than a piece of paper ! What I mean is take things slowly and see whether or not you actually get on with each other before you get in too deep. See if you can be friends as well as lovers. The two things don't always automatically go together. . . .that's life for you. :?)

    Give it a couple of years and you'll really get to know each other. I know that sounds like a life time at your age, but it takes a while before people really show their true colours. But I wish you all the best peaches. :?)

    most of the time it is infatuation.real love stands the test of time.i'm not saying it's impossible,but most of the time,no,you are just too young to make a life long commitment.

    Of course, but having the maturity to handle it in adult manner is another thing. I had a first love at that age and it lasted for about four years, than we went our separate ways.
  • RobHom 2012/08/08 23:33:24

    I tend to think of it more as "infatuation" or "puppy love"..... Frankly....speaking as one who was 16 many moons ago....when you're at that age...you are pretty much clueless.
    Yes, I know...every kid who is 16 or 17 who reads this says they are different....uh-huh, yeah right...NOT...you are just the same as we were back then....ABSOLUTELY CLUELESS...with runaway hormones, and some wicked desires...boys followed their one eyed helmeted monster, and girls their "Snow White gets married to Prince Charming" fantasy".....and yeah...your great grandmother went through the same fire drill.

    There is a reason the statement: "The more things change, the more they stay the same"! is 100% true.....

  • RobHom peaches 2012/08/09 13:40:55
    RobHom
    Yes, everyone is different...that is why the world is not a boring place. Imagine if everyone was the same..... Welcome to the world of the "Borg"....

    I am well aware that every teenager....upon hitting puberty becomes the smartest person on the planet, has the answer for everything, and is never wrong. Parents and anyone who disagrees is stupid or doesn't know squat..... I was there about 48 years ago... funny thing is... so were my son and daughter, and everyone else I have ever known.

    I expect you will deny the truth in my statement....but, then that is to be expected!!

    I'm 16 and I know that I'm not the smartest person and the world, and that adults are usually much wiser.
    Obviously I don't have the answers to everything, but with time I can learn as much as I possibly can.

    High school relationships don't usually last though. My brother and his wife started dating when they were in like 7th or 8th grade though and they both are 27 and they have been married for 6 or 7 years. They have a daughter who will be a year old on September 23rd too.

    I got married when I was 17 and am still married to the same wonderful man. Maybe wasn't the smartest choice only being 17, but I was in love and still am, 35 years later.

    A 16-year-old is perfectly capable of romantic love, and in the past, many were getting married even. However, many modern teens fall in and out of "love" haphazardly because they haven't been given realistic examples of romantic relationships, nor the emotional tools to make a relationship work. But yes, it is definitely possible.

    No she can think she is.... It's a good bet it's simply Lust. Come on you women out there...... When you were a teen How many boy Friends did you believe was that one and only one for you?

    Having lived a long time and raised a daughter who had a mind of her own.... and even caused some of the gray hair i have....... I can talk from experience.

    First off, they are too young. and You ask the average.... I said " AVERAGE" girl 16 years old and you ask her about her ambitions and goals for the future......

    Most have not matured enough to make that kind of decision because that decision requires commitment and does not just involve one person (Her) but that other guy as well.......

    Now that may not apply to all but i am talking about averages

    Lol I'm not in a relationship with a guy, but the same things can apply. Everyone's experiences are indeed different though (: There are usually exceptions to every rule!
