I am only 11 and in the 5th grade, and people are already dating in my class. I'm not - even though I can totally telll several boys are checking me out.

I think 13 is too young to be in love. BUT it is VERY possible to truly be in love at a young age. Not 13 mind you, but you CAN love some one at a young age. IF they are the person God created for you.

I think there is a part of us that can be in love at 13, then there is a part of us that cant. But I think there are people who can understand what it is to a point. I have a bf and love him but I am not sure if its the same love I would have if I were much older.

So there is this guy and his is like my best friend. He is like a brother to me. He knows everything about me and we are always together. We flirt A LOT. Everybody always comments on it or tells us to stop flirting. Multiple people ask us if we're going out or if we like each other. It happens everyday. So I think he might like me. I really like him. But he has known for sure that I liked him before and he didn't ask me out or anything. Does he like me or is he just being a really good friend? And if he does like me, how do I get him to ask me out?

OMG! Love doesn't have an AGE LIMIT!
by toadie101 on 10/22/2011 12:34:23 PM
Kids don't have a clue what love is! 19 is the age I 'd say you acctually know what love is ;)
by cindy5218 on 10/11/2011 2:24:12 PM
Gosh, I think love doesn't have an age.
I fell in love, and I'm 13. And that's for sure. And you just know.
When someone says they "love" someone. They do.
But when you're in love with someone... It means something stronger (I think.)
But I don't think being in love at 13 is impossible.
It really isn't.

my first BF was in 2nd grade and we never offically broke up (me and my friends chased him around the play ground so we counted that as breaking up..... wow..... no wonder im so stange!) and one day we were playing sparkle (that spelling game where one person says a letter and the next etc.) and my hands were in my pockets and i felt something in my pocket it was the note he gave me saying he liked me it had gone through the wash a ton of times and it was just crinkled and i recycled it(mother nature need love!... even if it is dead.) and now i regret it , i dont like him but he put hard work into that (it had little hearts!) and i could show it to my children (i will most likely say it was from highschool though not 2nd grade.) LOL

Think about it this way. At thirteen years old, you still have your whole life ahead of you. You are going to meet countless of other guys. It doesn't make any sense to declare your love for one guy at such a young age because most likely, it won't last. It's probably just a huge crush. I highly doubt you are really, truly in love.

I beg to differ. I don't think there's a 'certain age' when you can officially fall in love. I don't think 3 year olds can fall in love, but I think 13 year olds can. I am thirteen and I've been in love once, when I was twelve. I've had other crushes since then, even huge crushes, but never in love again. It can also depend on your definition of love. Devin A.

So I have been dating my boyfriend for 3 years. I love him, we're like best friends. I have a problem though. I like my best guy friend also. My boyfriend knows about it, but isn't mad. He told me that he feels like he doesn't deserve me and my best guy friend does. I feel like I want something new and exciting but I don't want to lose what I have with my boyfriend. I'm so confused.. please help.
Hey chica! Maybe you and your boyfriend should take a break so you can figure out what you really want. It's not a healthy relationship if you openly like someone else...

Last night, my BFF invited a boy over to meet us at store
across the street from her house. He brought 2 friends but
we werent allowed to cross the street because it was past
curfew. So they sat on one side of the road and we sat on the other and talked (i know stupid right?) well I went inside to get my phone and when I went back out the boys were in her yard and one was my crush of 3 years! My friends were REALLY embarassing and acting like spazes. I
just stayed quiet in the back and laughed a little. Did I completley blow my chances of ever being with him? Does he just think im a spaz to? I didnt talk to him or anything. This is killing me please help.
Hey chickadee! I definitely don't think you blew your chances just by that one encounter! Next time, try talking to him when it's just you, rather than all your friends around

I think you can be in love at 13, I think the issue is if its smart to be in love at 13. And I think a lot of the times we think its love it isnt so I would try to hold out if you can. You can really care for someone and you can be physically attracted to a guy and our hormones can make us think we are in love but a lot of the times I just dont think its love.
Plus look at guys, the younger ones arent even very mature and a lot of the older ones have issues to.
My cousin thought she was in love at 13. Got on birth control pills and now she is on her 3rd or 4th bf, I cant even keep up anymore. So your heart can be dangerous.
by luckykel on 9/9/2011 4:34:08 PM
I disagree. I'm in love, and I'm 15.

Most of the time what girls are feeling is NOT love. I've had many crushes that I have said I "loved". But love is more than that, it's when you can't go a day without thinking about them, it's when you can't imagine life without them, it's when you remember everything about them and never want to let go. It's when you know that you would die for this person. You will feel different about him than any other crush, and he can make you forget the problems, just by smiling. You can talk to eachother for hours and never get bored, that is what love is. Yes I am 13, yes I am in love, and no it's not fake.
by skf97 on 9/8/2011 4:17:24 PM
I think they mean if you've only known them a couple of months and just text him or chat, you don't really love him. I have a friend who would post on her BF's wall and say I love you and she was 15, he would say I love you baby forever, one time he told her that and six hours later they broke up and she wasn't even sad. But I can see dating and actually spending time to truly get to know them, I can see someone falling in love then. I don't want to date until i'm at least 18. I don't want to be so obsessed with a guy that I ditch my family, friends, and just be "heart broken" when he breaks up with me.
by graciecab on 9/7/2011 10:21:22 PM
My first boy friend was in the fourth grade and we went out for 7 months. when your in love you know it!
by koolkatmn on 9/7/2011 10:17:49 PM
When i was thirteen (last year) i dated a guy for 6 months and i definitely loved him. Lot's of my friends actually loved the people they dated. There isn't a certain age for love. but if you've only talked to the guy once or twice i don't think you love him. One thing that bothers me is when people are going out for a day and say i love you cause they probably don't mean it. MY OPINION.
by cgirl751 on 9/7/2011 9:00:52 PM
I disagree. I didn't know just because of your 13 doesn't mean you don't know what you're feeling.
by purpleputty on 9/7/2011 8:47:04 PM
I used to think that teenage love was stupid. But now that I'm in love, I realize that it sometimes is real. A lot of people declare it just so they can claim to be in love. I was reluctant at first, not wanting to be a teenager in love. But I had to admit it. I think that being in love depends on the person, the relationship. Not the age.
by wolfgirl13 on 9/7/2011 8:46:06 PM
hey Im in 6th grade and i have a crush who likes me back Im scared that he will ask me to our school dance this friday! i don't want to hurt his feelings when i say no because my parents don't want me to go to the dance with anyone. how should I say no?

My mom met the man she married when she was 13. I met the man I plan on marrying when I was 15. There is no minimum age to fall in love. Some people may just be mature enough to handle true love before others are. Two of my best friends are engaged (he's 18 and she's 17) they're getting married sometime after she turns 18 in January. They've been together since they were 15, and they are more in love than any older couple I've ever seen. One of my other best friends wears a promise ring her boyfriend gave her, and they plan on getting married/engaged sometime after she's done with high school. It really just depends on the person. I wear a promise ring my boyfriend gave me. We're not engaged, but it's a promise to ourselves that we will do anything for our love and each other. He's made me a better person, and I'm in love with him.

What gives them the right to tell us when we can and can't be in love? @pinkandlime i TOTALLY agree with u

i definitely think its possible to be in love at a young age. my grandpa fell in love with my grandma when he was thirteen and now they've been married for 50 years! i dont think im in love with anyone right now ( im 13 ) but i do think i have a really really big crush on someone right now
by tswiftluver13 on 9/7/2011 5:30:45 PM
Love is probably possible at every age, but I don't think you can love your crush, or a boy you haven't been with for AT LEAST 6 months. I am 16 and I love someone very special. We've dated for over 2 years now and I am very blessed. We were each other's first date (best night ever), first kiss (which was in the rain), first dance, etc. My advice to all the girls would be to wait till high school to date, and save yourself for someone very special.

I disagree. I think any age is old enough to be in love... maybe some people have different views on what love actually is, but as I always say.. Age is just a number
by icecreamsandwich13 on 9/7/2011 4:50:30 PM
Possible? Yes. Likely? No. If your friends are anything like mine were back in middle school, it is SO not love, lol.
But i think there's different types of love. You can like someone sooo much that you kinda do love them and you list off all the things about them you love and think they're so perfect (or maybe perfect for you). Then I think there's another type of love, and this one is more real to me. You feel something totally different from anything else about this person, and you might not realize it at first. You'd do anything for this person (not just say it) and their friendship is really important to you, like if a relationship doesn't work out you'd still care and want to be there for them. You really care about them and notice all the small things about them, and things like that....now i'm not saying I've ever been in love, but from what I know, well, this is what I know, lol...and I think I'm falling into some sort of it

I totally agree with you. There is no age.
by Meeshmeesh on 9/7/2011 3:54:42 PM
i disagree. i think its okay to love someone just as long as you dont do anything crazy for him or change yourself to be with him. if you love him then get him to notice you for you and as long as he loves you for you and you love him for him nothing can go wrong.
by FairyKari on 9/7/2011 3:52:55 PM
I disagree. I've never gone out with the boy I love. I've know him for..jeez... 8 years now. I LOVE him. I don't a crush on him, I don't like like him, I LOVE HIM. I LOVE PATRICK. I'm 12. And you might say I'm an exception for knowing for so long, but its not like were BFFs, we've actually been "enemies" since kindergarten. So, your wrong. There is no age minimum on love. I know what I want to do, and where I want to go to college. And I'm in love. Age is but a number.

I think 13's to young. I have a BF and were not in love we really like each other. My BFF was dating this total player and he said to her he loved her 2 days after they became BF/GF. she broke up with Him right there. The worst part is he told me he has told all his GF's he's loves them!
by Deedles1621 on 9/7/2011 10:56:10 AM
I disagree..i think that it doesn't matter how old you are, i say "love" all the time but most of the time im just playing around when im talking to my friends (i'll be like "I loveeee *name*)and one of my friends is like "you shouldn't be saying love at your age"! im 11 and shes 12. i still think if i love someone people shouldn't say its not true just because my age only I know if i love someone.
