Many people in their twenties think they may be too young for love and for adult life. They often date around and "talk" to people instead of committing themselves to a serious type of relationship. This article is to explain that it's okay if you don't fall into that category. While it's totally fine to not want to be tied down, it's also totally fine if you want to be "seeing" someone and "going steady"; that is okay too. It's time to stop shaming young love, especially if the people are completely right for each other.
Growing up I've always been a romantic. I loved watching romantic movies like The Notebook and fell in love with the idea of love and romance. I mean how amazing is it that one person feels so strongly about you, that they are in love with you and want to be with you forever? It's a crazy thing to think about -- love.
That being said, whenever you find love, I feel you should go after it. You shouldn't be worried about what other people think because a relationship is only between two people. It doesn't matter how young they may be.
If you do find love at a young age, I feel you should be grateful. So many people in this world are not as lucky to find love at all in their lives. Also think about all the time you save by not having to go on any more blind dates or being lonely. I feel like finding my love at a young age was a blessing because I just get to spend more time with the love of my life than say "what if I found him" years down the road.
I've come to realize that many people are almost afraid of young love, because they may think it can be too good to be true and just lead to trouble or distraction. I think this is untrue. If you're with the right person, that person should just be building you up and helping you get to where you want to be, not distracting you from your career path and goals. They become close to not only you, but your family and friends as well. This person wants to help you reach all of your goals and to be a part of them, loving and supporting you the whole way.
The shaming of young love needs to stop. If you truly care about someone, and you see them happy with the love of their life at a "young" age, you should be happy for them! Some people just don't understand that love really can happen for people early in life. Love knows no age or time. I feel truly blessed that I have met the love of my life already, and I wouldn't want it any other way.
A true love simply just betters the other person, and I don't think anyone of any age should be made to feel ashamed of that.
