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.
hahahahahaha what did you tell the girl? Well teenage love is still love, only on a different level. It is more like a crush. But she really really likes you, guess she loves you in a teenage way….a crush…but it could turn out to change into actual love
So yorel you also say that her definition of love is nothing more than a “crush” for you???
I fell in love with my one and only true love at 16. We were together for 12 years. It was not until I was older I fell out of love. It has been the deepest feeling I have ever had. I KNEW at 16 that is what I wanted. I still have never felt such love.
So lacey you agree with me, that love knows no age. And when I say that its love between equally aged people. Dont go taking this the wrong way now.
I think at 16 you do not know the kind of love you talk about here. At 16 when you “love” someone it is a crush….the learning phase of how it feels to be actually in love, because the teenager has a heightened sense of liking somebody. It can develop in LOVE as in the way we talk about when two people are actually together in a relationship ( of course you can out grow loving each other ) but even with adults it starts as a crush. That is why I think she just has a huge crush on you now and it is not “LOVE.”
