Well I have technically graduated from High school and only have my final exams to go. I have been with Tiddlyjen for just over 18 months and I know what we have is true love!

I think that you can of course feel love when you are in your teens.  Unfortunately, when you are that young you haven't had enough life experiences to put things into the appropriate perspective.  The feelings are real, but I don't think the situation and ramifications are often understood properly.

my vote: don't really know

while some high schoolers DO get married and have a lifelong relationship, others seem to be stuck in what we call "puppy love"- this week, loving one person and that person is the only one you want to spend your life with, and then the next week it's someone else. or they get in a relationship and break up rather quickly.
while we don't know (for sure) at what age people become capable of romantic love, and since it differs for different people, i say that i "don't really know".

that is all.

I said "of course", although I think it depends on the maturity of the couple.  I fell in love while still in high school.  Things didn't work out for us, but I came away from the relationship a better person as a result.    thumbsup.gif

After a more-than-a-year long relationship in High School I can safely say that it can and does happen. The problem? That we don't know how to mantain or support that love. As such one party ends up not being able to cope with the relationship to the same extent as the other, and the other party ends up getting exceptionally hurt. Not just stinged, not just scarred - But ripped to peices. And at that age that is incredibly dangerous.

So yeah, it can happen. My advice? Don't let it. no.gif

It definitely happens. I believe I was when I was in a 2 year long relationship, it ended but on good terms, and we're best friends now. My brother's 1st girlfriend was in highschool and they've been married for 4 years now, and I'm an aunt original.gif I think as said before it depends on the maturity level.

Walken I wouldn't say "don't let it happen" I would say to just be really careful. Because at that age a lot of ppl treat their boyfriend/girlfriend relationship like it's everything. A lot of us move too quickly and sometimes make bad decisions in the name of "love". It's okay to be in love. Just remember that you're young and there is plenty of time for it in your future as well. Never allow yourself to be rushed into something that you have doubts about (marraige, sex,...) If they really care about you, they can be patient and respect your decisions. I'm speaking out of experience of course. I got married at a really young age and wasn't sure about what I was doing. I was just afraid of losing him. Be in love, but have a great time and enjoy your youth and freedom while you still have it. thumbsup.gif  Love can hurt but wounds heal and life goes on.

Did anyone else notice, that most of the people here, who voted "of course" were in a relationship that DIDN'T last long? How can you say it was "love"? How many people can you love in a lifetime? 2? 3? 20?

Personally, I think, that a lot of highschoolers are not fully aware of their feelings, and mistake desires and different feelings for love. It can happen indeed, but it's more the exception, than the rule.

Snake, good deduction!   thumbsup.gif   I'm not sure how many people one can love in a lifetime, but for me personally I was in love twice before getting with my hubby.  Once in high school and once as a young adult.  I still believe what I felt in school was love but I was WAY too immature and selfish.   hmm.gif

You can tell puppy love, by the way your partner rapidly goes from "I like you" to "I love you" to "OMG! I'll never dump you" to "OMG! We'll marry in 8 years".
If they seem just a little too hyper... don't put too much feeling into it...
