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

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 stopped playing with toys once I was 13.

Kind of like in Toy Story 3, where Andy grows up and has to give away his toys. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I grew out of toys a while ago. Except for LEGO, I still occasionally play with LEGO. - BeatlesFan1964

3 You care about the opposite sex more

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. - BeatlesFan1964

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 - Goku02


4 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. - Goku02

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

That explains my young playmate - Neonco31

No. Not necessarily. - BeatlesFan1964

I've always thought about my future. Who doesn't? - Goku02

"Hey, Eckhardt! Think about the future! " - BeatlesFan1964

Yep I do a lot - Neonco31

A little bit.

6 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. - BeatlesFan1964

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

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

7 You discover new music

Yup, I only used to like Hip Hop and Jazz but now I like Heavy Metal, Rock, Electronic, Ambient, Chill step, Epic Orchestra, and some others I can't think of - Mcgillacuddy

Yeah still trying to find good bands to listen to so far I've recently listened to Evans Blue and decided I kinda like them.

Used to like simple songs but now I enjoy a wide variety of that - Neonco31

When I was younger I liked R Kelly's "I Believe I Can Fly" and Aqua's "Barbie Girl". Now I like Andy Lau songs and "Home for Christmas " by Hall and Oates.

8 You get more emotional

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 - Goku02

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

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

It depends. - BeatlesFan1964

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

10 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. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

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. - BeatlesFan1964

This is so obvious! I turn 13 this year!

The Contenders

11 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" - Mcgillacuddy

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. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

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

Nope. - Elric-san

12 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? - Mcgillacuddy

I didn't go trick or treating this year. Not because I thought I was too old, because I just didn't want to. - BeatlesFan1964

Yeah I stopped Trick or Treating I think since last year.

I just pass out Halloween candy now. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Not THAT often, but definitely more than before. - BeatlesFan1964

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

Well... - ModernSpongeBobSucks

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

14 You started spend time alone
15 Hating everything

I'm currently going through this as a teenager. And my friends. And my enemies. And my classmates. And strangers. And- - AsteroidCat

I've always been that one guy that "hates everything," but I don't hate things that I used to love. - BeatlesFan1964

That's discrimination - codydoestuff

Not everything, just being in public and talking to people and having other people speak loudly next to you aand... I just don't like most people
