In life, people fall in love at many stages. It is very possible for every person no matter their age to feel or fall in love. However, there is a certain stage in life where we reach and everyone seems to want love. I’m talking about the teenage years and love. When a teenager falls in love, it is referred to as teenage love. Teens are very volatile people and this is pretty understandable. It is the first time in life to feel the urge to love the opposite sex. This is on the onset of their physical growth. Their hormones are usually referred to as running wild and this is very much the case. Teenage is a confusing place to be because you are not old enough to be called mature and you are not too young to be called a child. This is the time where most youth act out and when it comes to the matters of the heart, a lot of them fall in love. Teenage love has sometimes been referred to as not being real love. Instead, experts say that a lot of feelings that teens have for the opposite sex is mainly infatuation. This is a form of lust that passes with time.

However, love is hard to define, it is vital that all cases be looked at differently. It is during this stage that many teens make the worse mistakes of their lives but, this is usually not the case in other situations. Sexually, teens what to experience and explore first hand, the kind of emotions that are associated with love. It is therefore paramount to understand exactly what they are going through before you are quick to give them advice. The biggest issue that is always a source of debate is sex during teenage. Many want to know what it is all about. Others believe that for love to be real there must be sexual intercourse. With the modern world, more and more teens are having choices when it comes to sex. Many have not come up openly to condemn teenage sex. In the past, when young people reached teenage, this was a time for them to be married off. For this reason, teens cannot be totally condemned for wanting to exercise that which has been there since time began. However, with civilization, more and more parents have come out strongly to condemn any love consummation for their teens.

The question whether this is real love or not still remains as more teens get involved emotionally with other people. One thing that we can say for sure is that if the love during teenage is not real; the person involved will have to learn through experience. Thankfully, teenage is only a phase of life and as you grow, you will discover things and become wiser in the matter of love. However, when it comes to love, no one can claim to be an expert. It comes without mention and no one has control over it. Therefore, the best thing that teens can do is to empower themselves and know how to handle themselves when it comes to matters of the heart. Otherwise, love is meant to be enjoyed to the fullest.
