Well, in your last statement you point out how i group individuals and judge them, yes, i do that, but my friend, see, i dated a girl for 1 year 3 months 12 days, after the first 5 months we said i love you probably 10 times a day each, after a year we broke up off and on, both cheated on each other, etc. Now, with that in mind, nd all the other relationships ive been in, you must realise why i myself simply CANNOT believe in teenage love. At this age, and until the day that we are old enough to live our own lives and be able to move in with someone. As teens, we have alot of problems, trust problems, other girls and boys, not being able to see each other alot, theres soooo much. I think that we can have our own little image of love that will satisfy us as long as the relationship is healthy.

You are right about that. You are right that you, in such society and at that age, will encounter many childish things like cheating. As i said earlier, i simply want to convince you that exceptions do exist. Just not in the societies you are in.

Relatively, i bet cheating is normal. In other societies, cheating would be like what incest is to us now. It is in those societies, that children are most likely taught the true values of love like chastity and what not. It is those teenagers that will identify their first love with the person they have to be loyal to, live their life with, have children with....
Whereas you are taught that love is something that involves sex, kissing, having fun and that involves alot of drama and influence from other persons. You are learnt that losing your virginity on a young age is "cool".

I was taught these things too, but personally, i like the medieval values alot better. Back then, people had alot of anticipation with their first love as they had never seen a naked body before. Now, all teenagers masturbate to them daily. It's so unfortunate, because they'll care more about the sex than the special bond with the person. In medieval times, you were already married and simply knew that you trusted each other to be the only one you'd ever sleep with. Now, girls compare their ex's penis sizes and boys are more interested in big breasts than a devoted girl.
But still, these "medieval" exceptions exist!

Well, yes the mid evil beliefs are perhaps more favored among some religions and some individuals, heres the reason i do not like mid evil values and ways, (Vikings is the example im using)
Daughters usually did NOT have a choice of who they would be wed to, they could possibly hate the person that their fathers sold them to. Most men in the mid evil days had many wives, so is tht actually true love? and mid evil times was before the woman actually had rights, yes, there were gods devoted to women and such (Artemis, Hera, other greek and roman gods), but women were still only viewed as sex slaves, only few women were actually respected in mid evil times.
Also, the loss of virginity, its a uhm, idk the word to use, i guess a "Wish?" for males? its something we use to brag about (Ex: ohh i fucked her) now, that is most common among teenagers who are "Popular", such as my friends and other i hang around with. Tbh, this wholeeee arguement depends on ones surroundings and such

It is indeed very unfortunate that among the rich, people were married off, and among the poor; the situation wasn't much different than ours. Except that religion taught them chastity and made them believe in such a thing as a sin.
I am ofcourse pleading for the cases where young children did fall in love with their husband. Most oftenly, the two did get a close bond that teenagers these days don't have. It is closer to true love than what teenagers call "love" now.

Yes. Surroundings matter. That is what i'm saying: elsewhere, teenagers CAN truly be in love. Just not in the western society.
