Ageless, Timeless, Limitless Love ... ( Part -1 - Young Love ) !!

Whether you are 80 or 18, everyone just needs to be loved. Lets dicover how notins of love are expanding and how falling in love has lost its retirement age !

We are living in a world where the age span of love is rising. A world where boy of 14 wants to read "How to be a Perfect kisser", a middle-aged women figure out "10 ways to please your man in bed", etc. Dr.Rohit Juneja says "We are expanding our notions of love and are finding new expressions to show it. The increasing divorce rate, in a way, is healthy because that shows that people dont want to be in loveless relationships."

YOUNG LOVE

( Spring is in the air; There's magic everywhere; When you are young and in love - The Marvellettes, American band )

Desire to Love : When you are at 14, you dont need a reason to be in love. Love has got marketed in every space of a youngster's life. A girl of 14 feels that boys are a fascinating subject. We can't stop talking about guys. I'm in love with a boy of my class. At my age, the pressure to fall in love is intense. I dont know the difference between attraction and love yet. So I'll just experiment.
For youngsters in the love market, it's about experimentation and glamour. Love in teens is dreamy. There's openness in the post I-pill generation. Its more fiary-tale and fantasy-like, where they think that everything is possible.

Maintenance of Love - There's hardly any maintenance required; love comes easy and also goes easy. Women are more upfront in expressing love, which is all about deep intimacy, sexual longing and exploration fuelled by a consumer mentality. When you are young, and you fall in love, its an illusion.

To Be Continued.......

PAIN-KILLERS
Are you always quick to pop a painkiller ? Do you keep stack of Disprin or Ibuprofen handy? You are not alone. This is growing addiction, especially amongst the youth. The composition of these drugs is such that they provide instant relief. A psychologist says that people addicted to pain killers are stressed and resort to quick fixes, not wanting to face bigger issues.

Harmful effects

CHEWING GUM
Do you chew gum constantly? Is it becoming an integral part of your owrkouts and official meetings? Chewing gum is a common addiction.
