The Debate: Teenage love is still love

Ok Im going to keep this real short and real simple. Here is this weeks debate topic:

“Is love only for those of a certain age”

Now everytime I tell people that a girl told me that she loved me, and that she was 16 years old. The most common response is “She doesn’t know what she is saying”. Which to me is straight nonsense, because feelings are feelings no matter what your age may be. People seem to think that once you are past a certain age you fully understand the concept of being in love and loving someone. And just because you are young, you don’t know what it is you are feeling.

That is just pure poppycock, as soon as you reach the point that you can decide things on your own. And you believe that you are in love than my dear dear friend are in love. Doesn’t matter if you are 13 or 95, love is love. Who are you to decide which feelings are real and which feelings are make belief. If I feel a certain way about popcorn, and you don’t feel the same way, or you think that popcorn is just a real normal thing. Does that mean that my feelings for popcorn are diminished or should be considered less then what they are?

This is my point of view, I am sure some “older” people will disagree with me. And tell me that they know what’s best for their children, and for the kids in general. And that kids will always think things are bigger than they are. That is my point of view, if you agree or disagree let me know.
