Ebony, I don't think anyone says 16 year olds can't be in love - they absolutely can. I think what people say is that as you grow and change, it's unlikely you'll be together for a lifetime. Passionate love fades, and if you're as young as you are, it's likely when the "in love" stage goes away (after about 3 years) you will still have enough in common to continue your relationship.
I don't know about where you live, but here there's a LOT to do that's free. Lakes and rivers, you can volunteer to walk shelter dogs on the hiking trails, free hillside theater, free band, orchestra, choir concerts during the school year (which are actually fun, really) look in your local paper for things to do and every day there are great things to do.
ay ma im 16 and i know what your saying about being in love. but i also do agree with you never can really be sure at our age, but if u feel that way then good for you (:
and about the no sex thing gooood choice. i gave in to my boyfriend about 5 months in. and i regret it at times. because i was only 15 and he was 17 and didnt know what i was getting into. now i feel thats all he wants from me. and i learned that he wasnt even loyal to me. and now im scared if i dnt give it to him .. he wil go lookin for a random girl to. soo be sure hes wont end up like that.
as far as other things to do maybe just like (bare wit me it might sound corny) but u should spend this year really getting to know your boy and see if he truly is worth having sex with. since the movies are out of the question. go to the zoo? lol or the park or concerts quality time doing anything should be enough for a boy who loves u. because i learned this too late but a boy who isnt happy with just chilling with you..isnt reallly in love. because when u love a person all u want is them. it doesnt always have to be sexual
