Dating and romance throughout life
We've loved (and been loved by) parents, brothers, sisters, friends, even pets. It's an intense, new feeling unlike any of these other ways of loving. When people feel close to others they are happier and even healthier.Love helps us feel important, understood, and secure.
So many of us have had enough ambiguously platonic “hangouts” to feel romantically hopeless—without ever even entering into real dating territory. I found myself in just such a situation not too long ago.
Teens all over the world notice passionate feelings of attraction.
