Do you feel woozy every time your object of affection passes by your desk in class? Do you swoon with delirious happiness whenever he says as much as a 'hi' to you? Well, guess who's having a crush?

Crushes are a natural part of growing up. During your teenage years, your body goes through physical and emotional changes. One such change is an acute awareness of oneself, and the need to be loved.

A lot of the trials and tribulations of adolescence can be attributed to teenage love. Seemingly insignificant, teenage love can, in fact, mark the beginning of great, mature, and everlasting love. The following love quotes for teens expound on the impish and youthful love that brews between two young hearts.

Is Teen Infatuation the Same as True Love?

Teens often mistake infatuation for love. To be fair, it is difficult to tell the difference between young love and infatuation. You need to know the person well enough to make a fair judgment of your feelings. 'Love at first sight' does happen, but only very rarely. In most cases, the attraction is purely physical.

Is Teen Love Unhealthy?

Teen love is also a wonderful emotion. It helps in the natural progression from a child to an adult. It gives you an identity and helps you understand a new range of human emotions. Jealousy, over protectiveness, lust, self-confidence, self-belief, and emotional maturity are some of the outcomes of teen love. Teens learn to tackle deeper emotional and psychological issues as they grow into adults. You can think of this phase as the butterfly struggling out of its cocoon.

Coping with young love may be difficult, especially when you fall in love for the first time. Don't let your feelings overrun your life. Love should not affect your attention towards your studies or sports. While you may find it difficult to concentrate on your studies or sports, don't stop trying.
