What is love? I think that love is different as you age. As you get older, you start to experience it although it is possible that teens can fall in love, but love is different to some people.  I asked teens in our school what love means to them,  and whether they had experienced it firsthand, and everyone had different responses. From what everybody was saying, it seems like teens are embarrassed to be in love or explain how love feels. A lot of female teenagers think that they have experienced love but they really haven’t. They get their hearts broken because teenage males are not fully mature and sometimes do not like to feel that type of pressure. If someone is in love, one might expect for him/her to think about the person all of the time, but for some, this isn’t true. For example, one male student initially admitted that he had been in love before, but when pressed further, he said he didn’t really think about it all that much, and it ended quickly.

I also asked students what love feels like. Some of the responses they gave were, “Love is not real until you find someone to share your life with.” Love is kind and patient, and I feel more confident [when in love].” “I feel happy.” For one student, who seemed to have gotten his heart broken, he simply responded, “F— love.”
