Top Ten Signs You're Becoming a Teenager

The Top Ten
1 You get taller

Yes, in teenage you'll get taller. You'll notice how tall you're becoming.

I was very smaller than my father who is 6'5 and now I've grown taller than him

Started off 4'11 in Middle school. 4 years passed and I was 5'11

I'm around 5'6 in feet

2 You don't like toys anymore

It depends. For example I'm 26 and I still like stuffed animals but I like DIFFERENT types then when I was a kid.

When I was a kid, I liked Barney plushes. I literally dragged the EVERYWHERE. They're now dumb.

Now I like horses, Perry the Platypus, and a minion.

I don't like toys anymore but I do not hate them I still have stuffed animals from my childhood

I grew out of toys a while ago. Except for LEGO, I still occasionally play with LEGO.

I still have a few toy boxes, and my bed is FULL of plushies! Most are customs. I also have my custom Demi Lovato doll!

3 You care about the opposite sex more

Most of my friends are boys ever since I was a kid. I care about them just as much as I did when I was younger :P

I might be attracted to the opposite sex but that doesn't meant I'm going to be lovey dovey any time soon.

I haven't had a crush since I was eight. But, I have made more friends of the opposite gender since then.

Yeah, I always liked boys, but boys never liked me. Anyway...

4 You start to think about the future

I think a lot about the future like will I have kids will I get married who am I going to marry what am I gonna look like or will I just adopt a baby

I've always thought about my future. Who doesn't?

"Hey, Eckhardt! Think about the future! "

Yup, a lot.

5 You hit puberty

I had started puberty a year ago when I was eleven a lot of parts of my body started to change a lot I have so many bumps on my face right now and I'm getting extremely tall

Growing facial hair for the first time was the best. I started to realize how sexy it made me look

A sign a girl hits puberty is when she has her first period. It's awful.

How ironic, I'm trying to pop a massive pimple I have

6 You start spending time alone

I feel like I need some time alone not from my family though or my mom just I need me time to talk to myself try to figure out who I am and I just need a break from drama and social media

Yeah, because you want no interaction with the outer world

7 You think every thing people younger than you do is bad

What? I'm a teenager but I think playing with young kids are awesome! I like playing with both kids and teenagers. If anything playing with adults is the most boring.

I just don't interact with younger people you know, and I don't agree because little ones are just so cute. If there's someone who does annoye me, that's my youner sister

Well, when they throw tantrums over simple things like Caillou, then yes. I hope kids never watch Caillou.

That explains my young playmate

8 You discover new music

As a kid, I didn't listen to music that often, but did enjoy music. I now have a wide taste of music, even listening to bands you may have not heard of, like "Catfish and The Bottlemen", "Bombay Bicycle Club" and "Placebo".

I have discoverd a lot of new music but there is one artist that never changed and will never changed and that is ariana grande she is my favortite singer my favorite everything and I feel like her music helps me get through a lot especily as a teenager

My music taste was significantly different 5 years ago. Back then, I pretty much just liked whatever was on the radio. Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber etc. But I started getting into bands like Evanescence and eventually Three Days Grace.

I've always liked Rock, but now I'm listening to more Punk (real punk, not Green Day), Heavy Metal, Rap (but not that they play on the radio nowadays), Jazz, Blues, Classical, and even EDM.

9 You get more emotional

I think about a lot of things that make me emotional and I have drama with my friends sometimes and I just wanna cry sometimes

Doesn't apply to me. I'm more emotional when I was younger. I keep getting colder and colder as I grow older, and is pretty much emotionless at times

I have been noticing this in me. I hate being emotional, I wish I was less emotional and I cared less.

When I was younger I dark and isolated now that I'm older I'm just bored and tired.

10 Your group of friends changes

Generally, I mean, I'm still friends with many people I've known for a long time, but how often I see them varies.

Yeah, I did notice this with my group of friends.

Yeah. The older I get, the lesser friends I have...

Yeah from existent, to nonexistent

The Contenders
11 You think about sex quite often

Eh every once and a while but not too often unlike Metts I'm not a sex addict.

Not THAT often, but definitely more than before.

Nope, nope, nope

Hey it's true, but don't do it too early. Higher risk of STD

12 You get more calls or texts

my friends call and text me nonstop

13 Getting super mad over everything, crying, cussing and then regretting all of it

Literally the past year of mine

ok I do cry a lot because I'm emotional and I do get mad a lot too and I do curse sometimes

14 You think you are too old to go trick or treating

I stopped Trick or Treating when I was like 10 because I realized why go to people's homes to get such a small amount of candy when I could just get my mom to buy a big ass bag of the candy I want from Stater Bros?

Well, I went trick or treating this year, but I instantly regretted it, cause I went to houses where kids my age were giving candy... BUT I love CANDY

I didn't go trick or treating this year. Not because I thought I was too old, because I just didn't want to.

I stopped trick or treating in late elementary/early middle school

15 It is your 13th birthday

This reminds me of that plot element from Codename: Kids Next Door where if you're a Kids Next Door operative and you finally become 13 years old, you have to be decommissioned since you're no longer a kid and now you're a teenager.

That birthday's already passed pretty soon next year I'm going to have a 15th birthday god I feel old.

I know that it says 13 on my profile, but I'm 12, I only put 13 so you can see the rest of my profile.

I'm only11 and all the others are true for me

16 You get addicted to mobiles and video games

I always was!

17 You enjoy chatting with male friends

But also with female friends

18 Your parents annoy you more often
19 You go shopping by yourself

I shop with my Mom still since she buys my stuff but she's very in tune with what kind of clothes I like. My Dad is kinda the opposite. Even though my clothing style is based on his taste, he sometimes thinks that I my clothes have to be expensive for them to be "high quality"

Me and my sister were only able to shop at the mall by ourselves with her friends one time. Otherwise, we always have to go shopping with our mom. And trust me, it's just DREADFUL whenever I shop with my mom.

I don't, my parents are overprotective, so I never did this, and I probably won't until I am 18.

Yeah, because if I go shopping with my mom, I'm not getting anything I want

20 You become more serious
21 You eat more often

I eat a ton when I’m bored, but I’m trying to break that habit

22 You become depressed or have anxiety

I’ve had anxiety since elementary school, probably because of my mean teachers

23 Your period starts

I got my period when I was 13

Normally girls starts their period at 12 or 13, like at high school or grade 6, but I started my period when I was in grade 4 and I was 10 years old and the worst part is that when I had it, I did not know what was it just imagine... And I could not talk to anyone in my school.

24 You are overflowing with all of the homework you have

One time, I got 11 hours of homework over the weekend

25 You perfect the art of procrastinating

Procrastinating is my hobby

Doing that rn
