Now before we dive in, I just want to let you in on a little discouraging secret about teenage guys and their love pattern. Teenage guys rarely fall into a long-lasting relationship. There! I said it! I hope this does not crush your hopes but it’s the truth. I guess it’s probably due to the fact that they usually fall into crush instead of love during those early teenage years.
Psychological Facts About Teenage Guys
Although some teenage love affairs grow into a lifelong love, the percentage is very low. With that being said, don’t let this fact discourage you from trying to make things work with your awesome teenage sweetheart. read on to learn more about the 10 psychological facts about teenage guys and I’ll let you be the judge.
1. Can’t Fall In Love
Yes, you heard that right! The majority of teenage boys simply cannot fall in love due to the fact that their brains are not mature enough to handle the responsibilities that come along with a love affair. Teenage boys have so much going on in their bodies especially when it comes to hormone fluctuations that cause their feelings to be all over the place.
Yes, some teenage love affairs grow and last into a lifelong relationship it is rare because most teenagers experience infatuations and crushes instead of real love. A teenage love that lasts usually happens when the teenager is in his late teens instead of early teens.
2. They Are Confused
Teenage guys are tempted easily due to all the different hormonal changes happening in their bodies. They are mostly confused about their likes and wants which is why you will find that most teenage guys exhibit personality changes very often than more mature men. If you are in love with a teenage guy who is acting out, blame it on the hormones and don’t take it personally.
3. They Have Turbulent Thoughts
Yes it’s all about a person’s personality but speaking broadly, most teenage guys have so much going on in their minds that they can be very hard to predict. One minute they are quiet and thoughtful and the next minute they can be very loud and express their emotions. All in all, teenage guys usually experience self-doubt, self-examination, and turbulent thoughts.
Understanding how your crush thinks and feels can help you predict or come to terms with their actions.
4. Looks Are Everything
If you haven’t noticed already, your teenage crush always looks top-notch because he is going through a phase where looks mean everything to him. Smelling good, getting six-packs, and looking his darn best is all he thinks about so if you find your crush spending too much time on his appearance, you now know why!
5. Girls Are Scary
Talking to a girl or interacting with one can be a very scary experience for teenage guys! They simply don’t have the courage to approach or talk to a girl due to their low self-confidence. Teenage guys are usually very shy and will usually date girls who make the first move. In most cases though, a nice guy will have a very hard time attracting girls because girls on the other hand are usually attracted to bad boys!
6. They Still Cry
Believe me when I tell you that teenage guys actually do still cry regardless of their looks! They get so confused sometimes that words simply cannot express how they feel so they cry instead. This is a normal phase and it will pass. If your crush is crying on you, try to be supportive and help him through his feeling. Never take it personally and rest assure that he will become his normal self in no time.
7. They Are Competitive
Insecurity is something that teenage guys struggle with so be prepared to notice a competitive nature every now and then! Also one of the main reasons why teenage guys go from one girl to the next is competition! They can’t stand the thought of a friend having a more beautiful girl at his side. It’s always a competition so if you are in love with a teenage guy, you will need to always look your best!
8. Don’t Try To Change Them
Good luck trying to change the way your teenage crush acts or thinks because you are in for a losing game. Guys this age struggle a lot with their actions and even when they are disgusted with themselves, they simply don’t have the maturity to change the way they act. Having someone around who tries to change them will cause despise.
9. They respect Modest Girls
You may find this hard to believe but teenage guys actually do respect girls that are modest in the clothes they wear, the way they talk and act. You may find them checking a girl wearing a short skirt out and lusting over her, but that is simply all it is, lust not respect! A guy will have more respect for a girl who actually deserves it.
10. Positive Actions
Here are some common positive facts about teenage guys to make your day! If a guy is quiet while around you, it means he is listening to you. If he is staring at you, it means he thinks you are the most beautiful girl in the world. If he calls you every day, it means he is in love with you and if he tells you he loves you, he most likely actually does.
If a teenage guy tells you he misses you, you can bet your lucky stars that no one can possibly miss you the way he does and when your head is on his chest, he thinks that he is the luckiest guy in the whole wide world.
