I am 13 years old and I have been looking for love.
So I started emailing guys from all over the world. I was looking for someone between the ages of 13 and 45.
I think I finally fell in love with only two guys. I eventually cut one off but I cannot shake that love feeling I have for the other guy.
The problem I have is that he is 22.
I know I love him very much and I know he loves me the same way.
Now I am thinking of what should I do. Should I leave him alone or wait till I am older for a serious relationship.
I am just naive? It this real?
Dear Confused 13,
Yes, you are being naive. At 13 I don’t think you are physically and mentally prepared for a serious relationship.
As a young teenager I encourage you to start thinking of setting the foundation for your life, go to school, enjoy your life, have many friends.
It is too early in life to be worrying about relationships. That will come later in life.
