ok, so just to let you know, i am an eleven year-old girl in seventh grade, blond hair, blue eyes,and im petite. my boyfriend, *tyler*, tells me i'm beautiful and funny and that he loves me everyday/night, (i know what you're thinking, oh, how cute!) but he used to have a gf who broke up with him. (she is now my bestie) the thing is, when he broke up with her, he said, (and i quote) 'ill never love again! id be too sad.' so im not so sure if he lied to her or me, and its really confusing. please dont answer by saying, 'you're too young to date!' because i really love this boy. ps: *tyler* is not his real name and he has brown hair, blue eyes, and he is also skinny

He's not going to know how he will feel the next day or the days in the future. That's how he felt in that moment. He was just upset after the relationship ended. When you are a little older, you will understand a little better. [ parsimoniousdino's advice column | Ask parsimoniousdino A Question ]

orphans answered Wednesday June 27 2012, 1:10 pm: I doubt he's lying. Infact, he is just a child, who does not know what love it. As children (yes, ages 11, you are still a child), you think liking someone a lot is love. It is not.
Children have a lot to learn: I used to be one, believe it or not. I'm 20 and I'm starting to get to maturity, but still laugh at stupid things.
So he is just confused. So are you. At aged 11, you can not even fathom what love is. Love takes months (minimum), usually years to develop. What you have is not love, it's just liking each other.
But what he said, he must have just said because that is how he felt at the time. He thought, he would never like anyone ever again. He was just caught up with the moment, and was very emotional.
