Can you be too young to fall in love?

Do you think you can be too young to fall in love? I ask this because when I was 14 I fell in love with a girl and adults told me I was too young to fall in love and all that BUT who are they to tell me what I love? Nobody can define love. Nobody can see what you see in a person. In my eyes and reality I was in love with this girl or what I believed to be love at that moment in time. They didn't know what I was seeing or feeling. Why else would they say 'love is blind?


Let me hear your thoughts, do you think you can be too young to fall in love? Remember love is not just towards a person.

Oh and if you're interested in what happened - Me and the girl was together for nearly 4 years and split on a mutual decision as we was completely different people over the years, but I still love her, not in a sexual way but in a friendly way. Love is strange. Young or old.

    Nov 25 2013: I don't know,i personally didn't had that experience.
    But i do think that you don't get that sense of responsibility until you becomes an adult.Even some adults today are still not mature enough to care for others,still called "kidults".
