I see lots of young children talking about how they are in love. Can someone actually fall in love at a really young age?

    I met my husband when I was five. We went to kindergarten together. I was walking home from school, and he took my sweater from my shoulders and threw it on top of a tall bush. I socked him one on the shoulder, and he kissed me. I thought it was gross, and had my brothers beat him up. But I never forgot him. We came to the States when I was 17, and I was still thinking about him. Then, wham. A year later, his family moved about 2 miles away from us after his father passed away and they moved to the States. And it was love at second sight. We've now been married for over 20 years.

    It's fairly possible since people generally mature at different rates, although based on the rates of today's common society it's highly unlikely.

    I'm 13 and I met my bestfriend at 9 yrs old. We would flirt and we would tell each other how we liked each other until we started to date when i turned 10. I realized how madly in love I was with him, I always told him everything and i would love his warm kisses. Our parents knew about us and his didnt mind but my mom told me that I didn't know what love is. A month before i had my thirteen birthday he broke my heart because my mom banned me from seeing him, she thought i had fake feelings about him. its been 5 months since and i miss him like crazy. I have thought to myself that i should move on so i tried dating 15 other guys. The feelings werent even close to the ones i was feeling for him. I see him rarely and i slept over a bit. I dont know how he could move on with another girl. I don't know if he ment the painful words he admitted to me cause i know that i knew my words were true with all my heart. Tears fill my the memories every night and i dont know how to move on. The quivering poem i wrote about him makes me go crazy. I want him so badly and i know that he knows that.

    I doubt it would be the same kind of love an adult feels, though. There are different kinds.

    Young people can defiantly fall in love but lack the maturity to KNOW what love really is.

    I was 13 when I fell in love, and I met him when I was 11. He was a lot older though, 18. But I loved him deeply.

    It depends on the child's cognitive development honestly. I was mature for my age as a child, which lead others to question my age. Everyone thought I was older than I really was. My youth pastor thought I was a senior when I was just finishing up freshman year. People used to think i was about 12 - 14 when I was only 9. I was just tall and behaved differently.

    So I think falling in love depends on the individual. Not on the age.

    Absolutely a child can be in love. No one can tell you if you're in love or not though, you have to figure it out for yourself.

    Of course kids can be in love, everyone has emotions.I am 12 and i am in love.No matter what age love is a part of your life, and life would be sad and dull without it, everyone has crushes, but there is always someone you really love and i don't no how you could think kids don't know what love is.

    Absolutely, I fancied girls as a kid. I think child romances are sweet, as long as both the kids want it. It's only wrong if a child makes sexual advances to a much younger child or when it's unwanted by the other child. Adults who molest children deserve castration and hand-amputation!

    I believe that Love cannot be compared or questioned by age, color, or religion. Love does not revolve around age, color, or religion, it revolves around 2 simple questions. What is this Person to you? and What would you do for this particular person? If you cannot answer these questions your-self then perhaps your not in love as you thought you were or you just need more time. I myself do not believe that you can fall in love within weeks or months, it takes time to know what you have, you need to first start missing the things you love, or in this matter the person you love, to know what you really truly desire the most. Love takes time, it takes you missing the things, or person, you want most in live to make you understand what love truly is. I myself am in a weird predicament where I fell in love with someone whom I never really thought it was possible to fall in love with, but I guess its true what they say, *You don't get to pick the one you love*. It took me a year to understand what love really was, and for me when I say *I love you*, what I truly am saying is *I cannot live without you*. I haven't seen this person for over 9 months and I feel like I'm going crazy here, but at the same time there is just simply nothing that I can do. So I let time do its job and teac...

If there is one thing that I have learned form all of this, is that love cannot be judged until it is understood. So... I wont lie to you, it will be painful but you need to let time take its toll on you so you understand what it is that you really truly want and need, but at the end you will be 100% sure what it is that you want and need and who it is that you love; and if you ask me, that sounds much better that to jump to conclusions when you don't know what your talking about. Don't you agree? =D

    I think I'm in love, and I am in sixth grade.
    My best friend and I stuck together until I moved away from him (mum's work).
    I have had a couple crushes on guys before, but this was pretty real.

    My other best friend, is in love with a guy, she has been in love for a year.
    She and I always talk to eachother, and now that I have moved away, she is planning to tell my guy that I loved him.
  • Zak 2012/01/12 17:40:04
    What is love?
    Zak
    I am thirteen and have been ''in love'' for 2 years now. She doesn't even know. It kills me inside, but I can't do anything about it. I do doubt my feelings sometimes, as my experiences of love don't match what people say about it at all... so maybe it isn't love? But the feelings are so overpowering I find that hard to believe. I mainly chose the ''What is love?'' option as I planned to write the lyrics to the What is Love? song; purely because I'm a tard.

    Yer i know that well anyway im 12 and my ex right is now 12 finally we broke up recently but i cant live without her i love her so much and i told her. it was because i was cutting myself because she cares about me that much she thought it was her problem. the thing i like is that we still have feelings for each other and hopefully we get back together that would just complete me. even no i am turning 13 and she turned 12 i am pretty popular at primary. yes i have hit puberty at a early age i get teased because of my legs :S but she loves me for me. i love her for her. this means yes kids can get in love like me... sometimes really too much put love what is love? its a powerful connection between people that requires both to make a lasting relationship. thats all i really have to say and i may get her back soon. lol i know she doesnt like my face cause i got acne and my hair because its long as hell but she likes me for me and the same as for me to her!

    Anyone can be in love, it has nothing to do with your age. Its a feeling like sad and happy but love is just harder to find, when you love someone that's it you don't wait until your an adult, you simply love them. People often laugh when they hear kids/teens say they are in love well I think they are wrong because anyone can fall in love!

    Since emotion is fluid it is hard to pin point an exact age they will be able to fall in love.
    All experiences are unique and complex and it is also hard to speak for everyone's perspective.

    Also it sounds like both sides of the fence translate the same thing.
    A child has more of a hard time defining it than for an adult who would define with complexity. But we forever repeat our behavior, we just find more bigger and complex issues.

    History repeats itself. There are arguments that our concept of time as we know it doesn't exists. that time is actually made up of life cycles passing by. Something to do with our regenerating organism that keeps dying and being reborn. Like mold - reincarnation.

    But that's off topic...

    I think you know what is love only when you had feel this emotion . Children can be in love and if you answer no or maybe it is because you have never been in real love . it is a feeling you want to chare with all the world . KIDS CAN BE IN LOVE !

    I think it depends who the two kids are...if they are meant to be then it can happen...but if two people aren't meant to be then it won't maka a difference even if they're adults...no on eknows what love is no matter their age, until they find that one person that turns their reality into something better than their dreams had ever been.... :)

    I think children (including me) are too young to /love/ per say but they can like-like or be infatuated with someone. Same goes with being to young to determine your sexual preference, there are a lot of people my age who say they are Bisexual and they just might be, but I'm 13, we're too young
