Dear Dish-It: Is It Puppy Love?

Dear Dish-It,

My boyfriend's name is Corey and we've been going out for almost a year. He wants to marry me and have kids. But sadly we are in two different states. Do you think we would or are we too young and its just puppy love? (I'm 14 and he is 17.)

Haley


Dear Haley,


Only you know whether or not what you feel for your boyfriend is puppy love or more. And, only time will tell whether you two end up together forever, or if you grow out of the relationship, move on, and find new partners to love.


To give you a better idea of the difference between puppy love and a deeper kind of lasting love, here are some other kids' thoughts on the subject.


Caroline, 15: "A crush is totally different than love because a crush is the feeling that you really like them because they're cute. But love is like to trust, care, worry, and know each other better than anyone else. I'm totally in love with my boyfriend."


Anthony, 16: "She gets me like no other person or any other relationship I've ever had. We just have this amazing connection between each other, we're able to talk about whatever with each other."


Davia, 17: A crush is filled with infatuation. But you know it's love when he sticks by your side when you get into a car accident, or even when your hair isn't done, or when your clothes don't match."

    Thank you. I don't think it's puberty, though; there are reasons for this depression that I know of, but it won't be that simple to treat. One, my crush probably doesn't like me back, most definitely, my mom is screaming more often, and I have a lot of stress.
