Can you be too young to be in love?

Young and in love.  Either we’ve been there and done that, or we are anxiously awaiting our turn to come.   It is almost every little girl’s dream to grow up, find their prince charming, experience their first kiss and have their foot pop up (think Princess Diaries), as she breathlessly declares, “I’m in love!” But when exactly is the right time to have a long awaited first love relationship?
