Teen Love: Not So Simple
This is one of the things I think people are judged most on these days.
Let's face it, being a teenager and having all these hormones flying about and trying to get the girl or guy you like can be hard.
There is one thing that is really getting to me though.
I'm all up for a teen relationship; I'm in one. Y'know, go ahead date who you want but girls seriously stop giving your body to every single guy you're dating! It's ridiculous; unless you know this guy/girl seriously cares about you, don't give them your body! You get to know them, they get to know you, you go through the whole sparks phase.
Being a teenager is supposed to be one of the most fun times of your life; this shouldn't mean you should be trying to get into a serious relationship.
Another thing is that girls and guys are dating people up to 30-years older than them and more to the point, they are in intimate relationships with these people. I know that age shouldn't matter but in most cases the guy is doing it just for the 'fun' not the relationship. Wait till you're old enough and then go for whoever you want. [Sub-Ed Note: The age of consent in Wales is 16-years-old.]
Things with teens these days are so complicated now; it used to be go to a bar, fall in love, summer romance. Just fun, now everything has to be so serious.
Don't try and get tied down as a teen, make it fun!
Just be you, and don't let anyone get in the way of who you are!
