Zeno feels lucky to have found someone she can relate to so easily. Even if things are a bit boring right now, time'll bring new things. Hopefully most of them being good.

Fuck I should probably be over her by now shouldn't I.
we, unlike the bourgeoisie, have nothing to lose and therefore our expression will be the only honest one, our words will be the only challenging ones and our art will be the one revolutionary expression. We need new noise and new voices and new canvases to become something more than the last poets of a useless generation.

Depends on what you mean by "love." Depending upon how you describe it, I would answer either "six," "fourteen," or "never."

Look at the poll, if you will. Look how many people didn't find their first loves until after 15.

You'll do fine.

Didn't have an interest in anyone much until I was 14, truth be told. And it never really was kindled again until I was 17.

I didn't have a serious interest in anyone until I was 18, if it helps.

"Like" and "love" are two very different concepts. If you can't tell the difference in the same way you can tell the difference between stumbling over a rock and running head-first into a concrete wall, you just haven't yet experienced love.

"Love" is simply the name given to an undefined series of complex chemical impulses. It is an effectively meaningless term, only given importance by modern culture and society.

I don't know about love, but my first hardcore crush was the summer after 3rd grade. I didn't even really understand that's what it was, at the time, but I would bike past her house and actually give a big sigh just knowing I was passing near her...yes, I was that silly.

No. It's a very meaningful term and has been given importance by every human culture across all chronology. It's also much more complex than your implied neurochemistry, involving a wide variety of somatic and psychological phenomena. You got the rest right, though.

I had a crush on a girl I knew at my school in 6th Grade through 8th Grade, but I never said anything to her.

I might have a slight crush on Hetalia Belgium...such a minor character, but....so...kawaii~
I swear I don't use that word very often...

...but I don't think I've ever really fallen in love.

Really? All human culture? I guess you didn't do so well in history class, eh? "Love" has really only existed since 18th century Europe started the Romanticism movement.

Um, really? Because there's references to it in the Tao Te Ching, Poetic Edda, Odyssey, legends of the Cree, the Amazonian Basin, the Australian Aboriginals and tribal Africa, the Old Testament, Kalevala, Vedic texts... really?

Er, no?

The concept of love, in various permutations, has shown up in countless cultures throughout human history, dating way the hell back.

Now, different cultures have had very different views on what love is, what it should be, who can experience it, and how it should be expressed, but that doesn't mean they didn't believe in love.
