People SHOULD fall in love in their late teens. That’s when people are at their most idealistic. When anything is possible. When emotions run their strongest. When love can truly be appreciated and felt wholly. I always thought, even when I was one, that the impetuousness of the age left teenagers unable to truly know what they want. I was wrong. They know what they want and when they want, they really and truly ache to have it. Yes, thoughts, feelings, ideals do change but that isn’t unique to teenagers. It’s just natural and nothing lasts forever. But enjoy it as long as you have it and with everything you have within you. Besides, the potency of the memories you’ll create at that heightened emotional stage will be what keeps you going when you have nothing left.
