What’s does Teenage Love Actually Mean to Teenagers?
It is a complicated and beautiful thing. It’s staying up late for each other and barely staying awake in class the next day. It’s passing each-other between classes and stopping to say Hi, but ending up running to your next class right before the bells ring. It’s going to the mall, wandering around hand in hand, with a silence that’s comfortable. It’s watching a movie together with his arm slowly creeping onto your shoulder. It’s walking around at night for no reason at all, his chest, her head, and looking at the stars. Its uncertainty of how long will it last, a risk you’re willing to take, even if it means you’ll have a broken heart. [ Read: Letter of Teenage Girl ]
Sure, teenage love is not easy, but here we provide you with some steps that you may do to make it more bearable:
- Always be yourself.
Never change your essence as a person for someone else, and the right kind of a person will automatically find you.
A smile can light up your face, and it makes you look happier, prettier and more approachable. P.S. A sure way to get noticed!
- The other person is as scared as you.
Your partner is also going through the same phase as you are. He/she is as confused and as uncertain as you. [ Read: 10 Dating Love Lessons 80’S Teen Movie Can Teach You ]
- Asking out
Gone are the days when it was a taboo for a girl to ask a boy out first. If you like someone, take a chance. As for guys, muster up your courage and simply tell her how you feel about her. Yes, rejection is scary, but not as much as letting the person you like pass away.
- You can’t force people to love you
Sometimes, the intensity of your love doesn’t matter. He/she may not feel the same way about you. It may never happen you see. So, you really need to learn when to accept that and move on.
- First kiss
For most teenagers, their first kiss is the most awaited event, because it makes you nervous and excited at the same moment. Lot of teenagers are in a rush to have their first kiss. Honestly, I think that’s too much pressure. All things should happen as per their own good time. You just have to learn to go with the flow and be patient as well.

Its teenage love.
Here to stay.
Here to play with our hearts.
And never to go away!
