    i have often asked this question myself, but mostly to myself, being a teenager and all. i dont think we as teenagers can honestly know if we are in love, but then can anyone really know? we can only know judging from what people say that love SHOULD feel like! and authors from books can often misguide how love feels. but to answer your question, i personally think you can fall in love at any age, 16 or 60! teenagers do often mistake the signs of a 'crush' as a proper feeling, i guess one can never really know until they've experienced a few reletionships to tell the difference, so teenagers cannot honestly put their hands up and say 'i love you' until they too have had their share of experiences

    This is a very difficult question.I suggest whatever it is serious or not We older people must help teenagers when they ask for something about their feelings,I've seen a lot of bad situations for kids when the didn't had any advises at all

    I think that teenagers have a wonderful capacity for love, and the same capacity for every other emotion under the sun.  What many teenagers may lack is the wisdom of someone they trust who is a little older and hopefully a little wiser, to confide in and to guide them during those first tentative steps.

    A teenager's emotions are all over the place as they hurry to try and keep up with their hormones.  Add to this their desire for independence and the need to develop their very own emerging and unique personalities and still find acceptance, and you have the makings for some very explosive emotions. 

    The passage from teenager to adult is often fraught with high energy and impatience.  When emotions are added to this mix it can be difficult but absolutely not impossible to differentiate between love and lust.  However, impatience may influence some decisions they make. 

    I certainly believe that teenagers can know love.  The telling point I think is how mature they are when they find it, and in knowing what a wonderful gift it is to have someone love you.

    I have never asked myself this question. I always understood how I felt, even if I could not put a definition to it. If you are happy in a relationship than your in love I guess??? who cares? really, I believe if I am happy in a relationship that is all that matters. I can always move forward and get married ,but the "charisma", "communication" has to be there and  I need to understand the difference between a want and a need. Im quarter of the way there in my YOUNG age, thank you.

    It is hard to tell how teenagers give meaning to their feelings because they are not mature enough. For them to find out if it is love or infatuation, teenagers need to take it slowly, starting with friendship together with other friends. If it is indeed love, it will surely come to place in the right moment.
