Can you find love in the 8th grade?

Dear Panel,

... And all the time that he and Jennika are going out, he is telling me that he loves me and that he can't wait to have a relationship with me.

What should I do about this relationship?

Can you find love in the eighth grade? Is this really love?

Dear Panel,

I am 14 years old and I am a very confused little girl. I hope you won't turn away my question because of my age. I am very smart. I take honors classes I am very a very passionate and loving person.

Andre is a very smart young man of thirteen. He is very kind and gentle and loving. He also has a quick temper.

Jennika is Andre's girlfriend. She is nice as can be and is also my friend.

Well, this is a confusing story. Okay, me and Andre are like best friends. We know everything about each other and we have so many things in common. The thing is we have very deep feelings for each other. In other words, we love each other. But then we are only in the eighth grade. How do we know what love is? So we decided to wait until high school and see if we have the same feelings for each other.

While we are waiting, we are going out with other people. His girlfriend goes to my school but my boyfriend doesn't. I have to go around school and look at him and Jennika cuddle and kiss and stuff. Envy is tearing me up inside!!! I can't take it!!!

What should I do? What should we do?

And all the time that he and Jennika are going out, he is telling me that he loves me and that he can't wait to have a relationship with me.

What should I do about this relationship?

Can you find love in the eighth grade? Is this really love?
