What is love? Everyone wants to know. Love will always be defined differently, depending on the person and their experiences. I myself, feel that love can’t be defined in just a simple sentence. Love for me, is when I look at my boyfriend, and know that I want to give him everything. It’s when no matter the situation, you will do anything to fix it and fight to keep your companion. Love is when you can be completely yourself and not have a single worry about what the other person is judging you about. Only because you know that they won’t judge you. It’s hard to tell when you’re in love, especially being a teenager. Although, there are just times when you think, “This is it. I have never felt this way before and I don’t think I ever will.” The media displays high school relationships as a heartbreak waiting to happen. But look at Mitt and Ann Romney. They were teenage sweethearts, and grew up to have five sons and sixteen grandchildren together. I believe that if you truly put your heart and soul into a relationship at a young age, you can grow to the customs of each other, and make it work. Love at such a young age can make you do wild, unbelievable, but beautiful things. When you’re a teenager, your hormones are already going crazy. With such compassionate feelings, it could make a great mark on incredible ideas and actions. If I wasn’t in love at 17, I would have no idea what to write for this essay. I have been with my boyfriend for two years now and I have experienced so much. I have grown stronger from the fights, and grown more loving and kind from the happiness of having someone there for me always. Most teenagers feel that sex is such a great part of a relationship. Sometimes, it is. You have to have that physical attraction in order for everything else to fall into place. I think that trust comes into play the most in a relationship. With teenagers, there comes many times where trust is broken simply because we are young and reckless. Our hormones are out of wack, and we do stupid things. It takes a lot to gain trust back, but it’s really worth it. Another huge part is honesty, which ties along with trust. Our parents always tell us that honesty is the best policy. That saying comes into play with relationships a lot. No matter the lie or the back up you have for it, it will always come right back to you. Teenage love is so complicated that it would take me days to explain what all I feel. I hope that this is understood to anyone who reads it, and enjoyed.
