    you'll never be 15 and in love

    lying in your bed on a warm summer night, watching the youtube videos, carelessly chatting on snapchat
    not worrying about rent or bills
    only worry in life is how you're gonna cheat on that maths test on wednesday

    Perfectly described

    I just edited the things in bold, just to suit the modern society....

    You should be kinda glad tbh because young romance is actually a waste of time (from experience) and usually doesn't last long unlike a mature relationship where both partners are not mindless and less hormonal.

    Why did you 'miss out' if you don't mind me asking?

    You surely must have had chances.
    At the ages I speak of I was so awkward and anxious...

    Young love can be a beautiful thing. Will never forget how I felt about my boyfriend when I was 16, I was truly head over heels in love. I'm still with him now and I'm 18, our relationship is very, very different and we are as people. But I do feel I would have missed out without it.

    Am I overromanticising things, or is there something truly unique in falling in love with someone at a young age that adult relationships just don't capture?
    Even a relationship at 17 or so. I'm 22 now, so definitely an old fogie who has not a capacity for massive cuteness any more.

    I have sometimes felt like this and I'm 18, I sometimes worry that falling for someone when you're older just isn't as good or exciting but I'm starting to believe that love is love no matter what age you are; just because you're older doesn't make the feelings you experience when you are with someone 'not as exciting' and that 'you've missed out' because it didn't happen when you were younger.

    I don't know what exactly makes young love different from ordinary love? I don't know about you but when I was 15 I was perfectly happy without 'young love'; I was having fun with my friends and loving fictional characters. I believe that you have plenty of time to experience love, I think maybe people say that young love is different to adult love is because it was their first relationship, and not the fact it was 'young love' possibly? So when you have your first relationship, it might be more exciting than subsequent relationships? Just a thought

    Is this actually legit? cause I honestly thought you did okay with women.

    I'm happy to respond to the thread question, but not sure whether or not to take it seriously yet.

    Fair enough.

    In any case, no you're not missing out. I've experienced it, but I can only imagine the most fulfilling relationships happen later on in life. You can still do the stuff you missed out on, so there's really no difference.

    Young love seeming better than adult relationships? That's impossible.
    It's not like younger people are at a stage in their lives where they have heightened and uncontrollable hormones or anything.

    Teenage love is one of the most horrendous, painful things ever. Be grateful tbh.
    Prsom. It's nice while it lasts but is a ***** that doesn't stop hurting afterwards.
