    ...different for every case. You can't generalize love based on age.

    I believe it is, Isnt it ture that you never forget your first love. When is at what time in your life? its when your a teenager.
    Teengae love may not be the same as when you are in love as an adult but it is still love. Not "puppy love" or anything like that. its true and deep. as a teenager i think you are able to open yourself up to a person more easy.
    so yes teenage love is real love and never should be stated other wise

    Is love less love then because you don't have a job yet, depend on your parents, have to study and cannot afford to live together?
    Can a teenager love? ... few parents doubt the love their children feel for them. So why shouldn't they be able to love other teens as well ?

    To the contrary: emotions are more pure in times of innocence, pain felt more sharply, love more deeply. The first cut is the deepest ... and sets the benchmark for later relationships.

    What is love? Read the Dutch love novel "Marleen" (http://www.amazon.com/Marlee... and find out what it can be.

    I fell madly in love with a boy ,whom I spent almost a year with, when I was a teenager. It was not infatuation, it was deep. It was true. There was talk of marriage, even then. Not a good idea to get married in your teens, obviously. But it was not infatuation, or "puppy love" (god i hate that term)
    It was and can be very real.

    well actually it depends on the people in the relationship then it maybe teenage love but in some relationships it could feel like love but just be affection or something like that.

    Love doesnt have to have an age itcan come to you when youre 12 just as it can come to you on your deathbed or to be less dramatic it can come to you when youre 40... love isnt obvious... if you know what I mean..

    Love is not a feeling....It's a commitment.

    i beleive for some teenagers they reallly feel love, like. if they can last more than a few months like the little "relationships" some have. i'm 16 and have definitely felt love, and i know it was real love. i can differientinate between when i am feeling lust and love.

    but i also think that some people may call it love. but they go out with someone different every 2 weeks, i don't classify that as love, i classify that as lust, or affection.

    love is for everyone no matter their age. there have been so many relationships where couples have been together for 40 yrs and it all started in high school

    As long as its 18yo love, its great either way.

    Yes I know, rude, and uncooth but truthful. I miss those days.

    I say yes. But also acknowledge that different people in different stages of life react and feel differently than each other, not according to age or anything, but because everybody is different. Every emotion is genuine. As I've said in a previous question, a group, definition, or outside individual can not concretely define a word and emotion so complex such as "love."

    Depends on the people. You cant base on age.
  • vinsen 2009/09/24 02:07:14
    no I dont believe it is...
    sorry but i say no because u can love a person but most teens dont LOVE people. for instance. care for them when there sick, spend alot of time with them, never put friends before your girl(or boy)

    Generally, no. In some situations, yes.

    For the most part, it's just impulsive aspirations for a relationship with someone who isn't even very compatible.

    It's chemical, and those raging hormones are the cause! Teenagers are too young to even know what real love is. It's not just about sex (which the hormones are pushing you to have....sorta unfair isn't it). You have to be MATURE to experience love because it involves trust, listening, taking and giving like never before. It also means having the person you love as your best friend because after the sex is gone you better have something there that keeps you bound together.

    It depends. Alot of people at my school say the they love each other the first day the go out. But i know it's not real. They don't really know what love is if they just break up a week later.

    I know a couple that recently got married and they have dated since the 8th grade. Now i think that was real love.

    I depends, but age doesn't matter when you absolutely know you've found the one person in your life who means the world to you.

    Generally, it's infatuation. Real love takes time. It's a constantly evolving product of your past experiences.

    All of which, does not mean it doesn't... feel like love... it does!

    I remember! :)

    Depends, but why not? Why cant teeenagers be in love too?
  • elizabethbath0ry 2009/09/23 21:52:19

    I think when you are younger you are feeling new things for the first time and because they are new to you they are much stronger feeling than when you get older and can understand what you are feeling better. So though I think a teen love can be very much true it can be very intense and misunderstood. Of course lust is a big part too in a teens heart I think we all went through that at some point in life.

    Depends on the two people in the relationship and what they feel.

    For the time that it is in their lives it is real love..
    My friend Zach and Becca were in real love. And they were a freshmen and a junior.
    Zach has told me time and time again.

    For the most part, teenagers feel "in love" but love takes a lot more than feelings. It involves sacrifice, work, dedication, understanding, communication and sharing. A teenager, while he/she may want to give these things, doesn't have time or experience in these matters.
    sacrifice work dedication understanding communication sharing teenager heshe experience matters

    I met my boyfriend when I was 15 and he was 17. We were friends, then we became best friends, and we ended up dating as boyfriend/girlfriend not long after. So now he is 20 and I'm 18. We tell each other "I love you" on a daily bases and we mean it. :)
