i met a girl over the internet and i have strong feelings for her. is this love?
It’s not always easy to know if we love someone — that’s true for both teens and adults. Generally speaking, love is a strong caring for someone else. People demonstrate love by being there for each other, solving problems together, sharing hard times as well as good times, helping each other grow, and by being patient with each other.
Love isn’t the same thing as sexual desire. Sexual desire is a strong physical excitement and attraction. Sometimes people confuse sexual desire with love. People can love each other, or have sexual desire for each other, or feel both love and desire for the same person.
It’s important to protect your privacy on the Internet, and be careful about how much you reveal about yourself.
