Young love feels different than adult love. As a teen it can feel like a wave crashing over you. You have no choice but to ride it out. It can feel like you short circuited and can't think straight. Being apart (even just for a day) can feel like you chest is being ripped out of your body. When you are together it can feel like you are deliriously happy and almost floating out of your body. You can give yourself a panic attack when he doesn't call you back. You worry if you are good enough and how to make him stay. You might even make stupid choices in attempt to stay together.
As time goes on love doesn't feel so dramatic, but the connection is built of stronger foundations. I don't stress if we don't talk for a day or two. If I'm worried or insecure I just discuss it with him. He doesn't completely me, but he does make me want to be a better person. I can sigh and snuggle into his chest and know consistency, safety, and respect. Thinking of him feels like a warm hug even when he is away for work.
Love is different for everyone. I don't regret loving anyone. With each relationship I have learned more about myself and my needs. Each experience helps guide me to a better match.
Don't let anyone change who your are and don't go in expecting to change them. Believe me it's just a lot of heat ache that way.2
