  1. I actually think it funny when two teenagers seem so much in love, and speak of a future together and all…they just don’t know what awaits them, it’s not so simple…the truth is that they’ll break up within the year…MLIC (The blog)

  2. It’s not so much about them saying its “forever.” It’s about them meeting and a day or two later saying they’re in complete love and they want to be together forever. That’s the dumb thing.

  3. i did a complete 180 as far as high school relationships go: i went from dating someone a year older than me my freshman year and we ‘confessed our love’ for each other in less than a month, and the relationship turned out to be the most ridiculous, terrible, rocky, and just … blech … eight months of my life.

    and noww, my senior year, my boyfriend and i didn’t say we loved each other until abouttt three or four months into the relationship, and now we’re almost at that 8-month mark and it’s been a breeeeze.

    teenage love is weirddd, fersure. but it definitely exists. and it definitely sucks. and i definitely forgot where i was going with this.

  4. Teenagers think they know everything and they have no clue what real life is. Teen love is just overactive hormones and lust.

  5. the reason i know my love is real, is because at 15, i was going through relationship stuff that like 18 year olds were going through, and i know what love is, and what it isnt. ‘anything is love as you look into your box’ and that is so true. being in love, and being in love with the idea of someone are two totally different things, and i learned that early on.

  6. I’ve learnt from experience that if you’re anything less than about 18 and talking about a future together as anything more than a vague possibility if it all works out in a few years, you’re probably in a teenage relationship

  7. If they are angsty and immature relationships, it probably wont last. but I have been with my boyfriend three years now, he lives with me, and I couldn’t see myself without him – and its a mature relationship. i have seen many teen relationships end, even the ones I thought had a chance. so i think they can last, its just not likely.

  8. I used to think that qirls were so stupid to fall in love wit boys who obvisiously playing them ,, but once i felt like me and him could realy be together forever , you couldn’t tell me otherwise .

  9. i completely disagree. ive been in a relationship for four years, starting in 8th grade and lasting through high school. of course it’s not so simple, but no relationship is.

  10. that’s exactly how i feel.
    i have “boyfriends” because its fun and kissing isn’t too bad either 🙂
    but i never tell boys i love them because that would be a lie.

  11. Teenage love can be forever. My mam has a friend who has been with her boyfriend since she was 12 or 13 years old, she married him, had kids and their still together, she’s about 46 years old now. Occasionally teenage love works out.

  12. The sad but eventually happy fact is, everyone thinks their first love is going to last forever, but a precious few loves do, and when it usually ends, even though it’s horrible, everything eventually turns out okay and you become a stronger, better and more worldy-wise person, it’s just part of growing up 🙂

  13. I’m very happily married to the guy I started dating 8 years ago, I was 14 & he was 17. I look at my 15 year old brother & his girlfriend & think, they can’t know what love is.

  14. My boyfriend and I have been dating for ten months on the 19th. He’s a junior and I’m a sophomore. It’s definitely not easy (especially adding the fact we live in different states), but I have to admit, I could really see being with him for the rest of my life. He’s my best friend.

  15. I always make fun of those girls!
    I think they’re silly and in need of a serious reality check.
    But I’m one of them……he’s already asked me to marry him
    I said YES!
    and yet, every time someone else says they’re “forever” I giggle….because I know its not true

  16. i feel the exact same way. I’ve always laughed at kids my age who think their current love will last forever and i’ve tried so hard not to be another one of them…. but i’ve already started believing i’ll be with him forever… and that scares me

  17. it’s not but the most common kind of “love” felt by teenagers isn’t really love at all
    it’s a selfish desire to satisfy their own emotional needs rather than those of their partner
    they’ll mourn every second they’re apart rather than getting on with life as their partner should want them to, get jealous easily rather than trusting them, feel like they love them much more when they’re together, when really if they love them less when they’re not together it shows it’s not real love, and when their partner doesn’t satisfy their many selfish needs (usually because they don’t know they’re breaking the crazy rules) they passive aggressively take it out on them
    also if a teenager has a bad home life they see a partner as someone who can take them away from it all and use them as an escape
    many bad young marriages start on that kind of relationship

  18. I felt the same way. I thought teenage love could never really exist…until I met my girlfriend. I had a crush on her for a least 3 years with on and off periods, constantly breaking my heart and building it up again when she gave the slightest hint of liking me.

    Now we’ve been together for 6 months. I am still terrified that it won’t be forever.

    Sometimes it works, often, you see people saying that they will love someone forever, less than a week later they have their tongue down someone elses throat. That always makes me laugh.

    You never know how things are going to work out. 🙂

  19. Sometimes it works out. My grandparents have been together for 60 years! They’ve been dating since they were 14, and are still in love 🙂

    I want that.

  20. My mom’s friend married the guy she’d been steadily dating since she was 13. They’ve been married for five years and have two kids. Just because it doesn’t happen often, doesn’t mean it never does.

  21. Just because it is rare doesn’t mean it’s not real. I know someone who is now married to the girl he fell in love with when he was 14. What give an adult the right to laugh and say “Their love is not real, they are stupid teenagers.” Look around you. How many divorces are there? Love can happen to anyone, at any time, or at any age. But love can also be fake or lost at any time, and any age.

  22. I once loved a boy very much, for a solid ten years. It wasn’t some teenage love story. It was from second grade until I graduated from high school. In my first year of college, I found someone else. I love him infinitely, and we plan on getting married. But I will still always love that first boy. Not a love that detracts from the second love, but somehow adds to it.
