As Long As You're In Love, Your Age And The Length Of Your Relationship Doesn't Matter

Love has no boundaries, and it was always meant to be that way.

As Long As You're In Love, Your Age And The Length Of Your Relationship Doesn't Matter

For anyone who has experienced it, love is an amazing feeling. It is an emotion that can't be described, an overwhelming feeling that makes my heart want to jump out of my chest. It is a never-ending happiness that keeps a smile on my face and forms butterflies in my stomach. I feel on top of the world. I'm sitting here trying to explain what love is, but there are simply no words that can describe what love and being in love are and what they feel like.

Unfortunately, some people think that love has restrictions and boundaries that the entire world must follow, like rules that are set in stone. There are some people who believe there is a certain age when someone can really fall in love, or they believe that you have to be in a relationship for a certain amount of time in order for you to really know if you love them. People may say that you can't fall in love until you are in college, or you can't say, "I love you" until you've been dating for six months. Just hear me out when I say that none of that describes my life.

I just turned 16, and I have been dating my boyfriend for almost four months. He is my go-to person, the one who is always there for me when I need a shoulder to cry on or when I need someone to lend an ear to my rants or simply to just have a good time. I love him. I am 16, and I love my boyfriend. We both said the three words before we had even dated for two months.

I am sure there are some people thinking, "They are too young," or "They haven't been dating long enough to feel true love." There are no boundaries when it comes to love. When you love someone, you love someone, and you will know when you love someone. It doesn't matter how old you are or how long the relationship has lasted for. It only matters that you know you love them.

Some people may take a shorter time to open up to their boyfriend or girlfriend, which may cause a faster advance in feelings. To be honest, my boyfriend was the first real person that I really talked to about my emotions, and that makes me treasure our relationship so much because I know he isn't here to judge me. He is only here to listen to me and support me. Our feelings for each other moved faster than we thought, and we reached the point of love after only two months. That doesn't mean the love we think we have isn't real. It is real love, and no one can tell us or convince us otherwise. Our bond and emotional connection to each other is too strong for anyone to break.

Yes, we are only 16 years old, and yes, we have only been dating for four months. But none of that matters when you know that you love someone or are in love with someone. All that matters are the feelings we have for each other and the bonds we share. We love each other to the moon and back, and that is never going to change.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
