This Goes Out To All Teenagers!

As a teenager, I understand what goes through the adolescent mind. Love is one of the first things on it. If you think you’re in love at a young age, more than likely you’re not. When I was 16 I thought I was in love for the first time with an older guy online who lived hundreds of miles away from me. He left me for another woman who was pregnant when they met. He broke my heart in the worst way I thought was possible. I thought I would never get over it because I was young and he fell in love with a woman who was probably trying to pin a baby that wasn’t his on him. Some time went by and I found myself over it. I went from completely crushed to being a normal teenager again.
Don’t fool yourself into thinking that you’re going to be with the person you feel love with forever. If you do that, you’re just going to get yourself hurt. My advice to you is to go out and mature yourself. If you want to be sexually active make sure it’s protected and safe sex. You don’t want to be a kid and have a STD or end up pregnant. Go to college and figure out what you’re going to do with your life. Meet new people and discover interesting cultures. Make the best out of your high school and college years because that is what’s going to be in your memories. Losing your first love will hurt a lot, trust me, but eventually they’ll fade away in your thoughts and heart and when you’re older you will find the person you want to spend the rest of your life with.

There's an old saying, we get old too soon and smart too late. It's so true.

Looks like you're getting smart alittle sooner than average.

I think that you’re absolutely right. Life is about living, about gaining experiences and learning from those experiences.

The great thing about youth is the intensity of all those experiences. But that’s also the hard part. Because a young person doesn’t have anything to compare their “firsts” with, they all seem so much bigger, so much more intense.

But that doesn’t make them any less real.

Great advice and Tayzlove is also correct. Don’t ruin your chances of finding love or your experiences by being afraid of getting hurt.

Love isn't happiness. It's a symptom. A symptom made by greedy jerks and media consumers. I would honestly murder my first love if I could, but I'm not a psycho. It's a tough thing, seeing somebody that crushed your heart every single day, and not being able to do anything about it.

I'm 13, and think that I am in love. I'll be 14 in 13 days, but that doesn't make a difference, I understand. Anyways, I also believe you can fall in love at any age. However, I'm trying to be realistic with myself here and understand that I'm probaly not in love and will laugh at the thought someday. Thanks for the advice! I really appreciate good advice when it's offered, and am glad you are giving it out.

I'm 13,i like what u are saying, but i do not believe it. i strongly believe that u can truly fall in love and any age all though it can be complicated and confusing anything is possible,and no matter what i think that everyone should believe that love can come at anytime from anywhere<3

I understand what you're saying and I'm glad that you believe in love. Love can happen at anytime but people need to be willing to compromise for it and some aren't ready to make that commitment. You're really young so you need to be very careful out there and be sure not to get yourself hurt.

Getting hurt is not something to worry about if u worry about that u will worry your hole like,its loosing the one you love that u should worry about,there is always a chance u are going to get hurt its life get use to it,but you have one chance at true love so instead of worrying about it hold on to it with everything you have because once it is gone its not going to come back no matter how old u are.
