If you try to understand love at age 16 you're gonna have a bad time.
jemslie123 Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I agree. Every single time I've believed I'm "In Love" with from ages fourteen to about nineteen or even up till the present have, in time, either caused me a great deal of pain because I didn't understand my feelings and they weren't reciprocated. or have just faded away like a harmless crush.
At twenty years old, I still don't think I understand what it is to be "In Love," and I don't believe I will until it happens. I think that Infatuation is very good at tricking us into believing it's Love, and I dunno, maybe that's how love starts, but it isn't Love. A kind of love, yes. But not Love with a capital L
Of course, at sixteen it's not wrong to want to fall in love. Might just be a good idea to wait a little while before you rush into the first relationship that MIGHT be Love and end up hurt.

Cause believing you're In Love and making a rash decision hurts. That's personal experience talking.

Don't be in a rush to Fall In Love :-)

I fell in love at 14... I am now almost 16, and we are still in love.
LOVE shouldn't have an age. You are right, to love someone. You deserve to love someone.

I found the love of my life at 16, but we're waiting to get together until I'm 18.

I totally understand you..
For me it's the ideal way to be loved, total devotion from both sides.. 
And the need to fill owned, cherished, wanted
I think is the best way to know that you are in love, really in love..
KittycatKit Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2013
Of course you're not too young to understand the concept. In fact, I think that a good amount of people start feeling that at your age. However, you are young, so keep that in mind. Chances are, the first person you have a relationship with isn't going to be the one you'll marry, so keep that in mind. If you convince yourself that this person is your soul mate and that you'll spend the rest of your lives completely and utterly in love, it'll only make it so much harder when/if they want to move on. I'm not saying by any means that you shouldn't trust your companion, I'm just saying that you should be a bit realistic. That being said, enjoy it! Even if it doesn't last forever, make it something that you can look back on and smile. I wish you the best! :)

You're never too young to fall in love. Heck! I just turned 15 two days ago and I'm madly in love with a great guy!

Regoleta Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2013  Student General Artist
No, I think love is shared freedom, no control over someone else. 
skytiger859 Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
It is, but with is comes a sense of giving up control. You hold the other person in a higher regard than you do yourself, and the beauty of it is, they do the same. With each person trying to lift the other higher up, both end up taking flight. I'm not sure if that makes sense, but it's the best way I can explain it.

Sometimes...people believe that if we feel love, we feel live,, you are alive no matter if you're alone or with friends, you are alive, this is yourself, this is your life, you are a great writer, you will write so awesome poems, and you will be a nice writer
WalterKarsemeijer Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2013
You are not too young. Girls can be the most evil creatures on this world, yet you will need them more and more. Prepare to face 1-2 years or more of hope and rejection.

abymon Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2013
love is the devotion you feel for another person, if that feeling takes the form of control for you i think that is ok, nothing should be denied if is the true feeling of your heart and you don't hurt other in the process.
Veritas-Aeternia Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2013
The world suffers from a lack of understanding the word love.
Love is eternal, it is the light, it is inside us all waiting to be discovered.
If one can first find the unconditional love that is given to them every beat of their life, the one can find all of the love they desire in life.
dantesdisciple9 Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
personally I believe that it depends on how mature you are and your understanding of yourself
ZaubererbruderASP Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I also think like this, but sadly most people seem to have another opinion.

providing its a female but no, i was thinking of something either a little more stalkerish/obsessed, or something a little more megalomaniacal
SakurakoAnamiya Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Well Love is a confusing thing. Can you define love in your own words. Well you can but your going to have to think about it for a while. Yes no one can truly understand love until you know for sure that it is love. 
Honestly I think that once you find that person that you know you will love then it all becomes clear as glass.
lordrook Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2013
Yes. It is possible!
Among my friends who happen to be Hebrew, 13 is the age of adulthood celebrated by a Bar-Mitzvah or Bat-Mitzvah. 
During the "Biblical" days this meant marriage, job, taxes, all of it!
My advice for you would be:
1) Know yourself before you rush into something!
2) Do not fall in love just for the sake of being in a relationship.
3) Never settle for second best!
4) Find that someone who already LOVES you and give them a chance, they might actually be the one you're looking for!
Hang in there!

I think this was written by a mature 16 year old really, I remember being at that age everyone was kissing on everyone and having relationships that sometimes didn't even last a day, I think what is written is just a way of saying : I want someone faithfull.

That's the hardest part of any kind of relationship, be it boyfriend/girlfriend or general friend/partner in crime: the balance of giving and taking without overdoing one or the other.  I tend to take a lot in Sis's and my relationship, but there are times I wish she would take as well so I can give just as often.
Buirat Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
and oh my god, these people saying teenagers don't know what love is kill me
you guys are pitiful, do you honestly expect every single person on the planet to have the same experience? I got together with my boyfriend when I was 14
We're now living together and I'm 19 and we're perfectly fine. 

I have a friend who has been with his girlfriend since they were 12, and he is now 21. Shut up with your jealous bullshit.

Risu-chan14 Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
When you get older, you'll probably understand that love isn't really about "ruling" and "being taken". It's a little of both. It's compromise. It sounds like you're just interested in sex right now-- being a 16 year old (boy?). Try to remember that when you want to love another person somewhere down the road, don't try to control them and also don't expect them to make all the decisions for you (in sex and out of sex). You can experiment by all means (like with BDSM I guess? because it sounds like you are thinking along those lines), but it's not healthy to love someone based on control. That's kind of psychological manipulation.
SundaeSurprise Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I don't think he meant sexually O_O i thought he meant more of a emotionally kind of way.

You're never too old to love, but if you're talking about those concepts (BSDM-type stuff), you may want to wait a little bit...

Did I say old? I meant young... :meow:
KayIscah Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2013  Professional General Artist

If you think love means to rule and be ruled, then yes, too young.  That's not love, more like obsession, love isn't a chain or a domination.


You're not too young to love and be loved.  But real love doesn't work like Twilight... if a guy is sneaking into your room to watch you sleep, we call that stalking and it usually doesn't end well.  Controlling relationships can become very dangerous, very quickly.


That doesn't mean you can't love someone very strongly with devotion and build a life with them.  But you should aim to be their partner, not their boss or jailer...OR their captive.

SundaeSurprise Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I think he meant control/rule as in, emotionally, like he wanted to occupy their thoughts and their dreams and he wanted someone to think of him as much as he thought of them. But idk, each to his own.

Love is a good thing... but I don't get that close to anyone. Hell, I'm not even that close to MYSELF!

I unexpectedly fell in love at 18. Never dated before, never really though i was ready. Then I made a new friend senior year, and we ended up developing feelings for each other that neither of us had really had before (and she had a few bfs before) so i decided to take a chance and ask her out. It's been almost a year now, and we're still in love. We aren't a perfect couple. We've already been through some tough times, and we worked through them. At first we didn't really have normal conversations, but we got used to each other and learned how to have a nice time without constantly snogging ;)
There's no sign or gene that makes us work so well together. We share true love. Love is a choice. And we BOTH choose to stick together. Because we wouldnt give up each other for any riches in the world.

TLDR: Love is a choice. If you both want to be together, and be together no matter what, you'll learn to work. If that makes any sense.

Not sure why i wrote this. Hope this tells you something useful. :) god bless
