Navigate: FAQ Home Page > Emotional Issues > Being in love
Here is the catch though -- love should be healthy for both people and not harm either one, which can be tricky. Your body is still growing and it is important to value this emotional love, and postpone the physical intimacy until you are older. I know that is not what you asked, but I want to make sure you read my answer as "being in love" not being sexual. Sorry -- it is a mom thing.
