Teen love is something that is very popular. From TV shows, movies, and even books, teen love is something people crave for their entertainment purposes. But for some people, teen love is not just entertainment, it’s life. Which brings us to the question: Do teens really know what love is?
“Love is too powerful for teens to understand,” says junior Ramone Simmons. He believes that teens confuse sex with love and that they’re too young to really understand the meaning of true love. So, he does not think teens know what love is. It seems as if some people think teens have not gone through enough experiences to understand the whole concept.
It seems like people have different inputs on where love comes from. Some say love comes from the heart, not from your age. But some people think that at a certain age, you don’t know what love is.
Ms. Ward, who teaches juniors at V.O.I.S.E., stated that she thinks teens know what love is because they are more open minded than older people. Older people are more mature and serious, while teens are more open minded to new ideas, like, love.
Sydney Miller, a junior, said, “Teens get confused with the word love.”
When someone says “I love you,” it does not most likely mean that they are in love with you.
A lot of people get confused with that and end up with their heart broken.
Goldy Young, a junior in a teen relationship, says that age shows a lot in a relationship. “Younger teens really don’t know what love is compared to older teens, around the ages 16 and up. All because they have not went through enough experiences to know what it is.”

“Love has no face,” said Katie Moss, a 50-year-old woman who has been through a lot of relationships. Love is something that is viewed in many different ways.
