Kids Speak Up About Love

They may be young, but kids know a thing or two about love— or at least they think they do. Some of these answers are pretty darn insightful and others somewhat miss the mark, but they're all entertaining. But I'll give Bart my digits any day; he's my kind of date!

What does falling in love feel like?
"If falling in love is anything like learning how to spell, I don't want to do it. It takes too long." — Glenn, age 7

How can someone practice kissing?
"You can have a big rehearsal with your Barbie and Ken dolls." — Julia, age 7

When is it okay to kiss someone?
"Never kiss in front of other people. It's a big embarrassing thing if anybody sees you. If nobody sees you, I might be willing to try it with a handsome boy, but just for a few hours." — Kally, 9

What are some ways to make someone fall in love with you?
"Tell them that you own a whole bunch of candy stores." — Del, age 6
"One way is to take the girl out to eat. Make sure it's something she likes to eat. French fries usually works for me." — Bart, age 9

"No one is sure why it happens, but I heard it has something to do with how you smell. That's why perfume and deodorant are so popular." — Mae, age 9
"I think you're supposed to get shot with an arrow or something, but the rest of it isn't supposed to be so painful." — Manuel, age 8

How do people in love typically behave?
"When a person gets kissed for the first time, they fall down and they don't get up for at least an hour." — Wendy, age 8

Are you looking for love?
"I'm not rushing into being in love. I'm finding fourth grade hard enough." — Regina, age 10
