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. - BoredJeff02

I haven't had a crush since I was eight. But, I have made more friends of the opposite gender since then. - BeatlesFan1964

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

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. - BoredJeff02

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

Yeah. - NikBrusk

9 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. - BoredJeff02

I just pass out Halloween candy now. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

10 You think about sex quite often

Kind of? Not extremely so, but more then when I had plans to be a virgin for my entire life (true story). I don't have to go out and lose my virginity right here and now, though. - Elric-san

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

Nope. And I hope this will never ever happen to me - FireWasp2004

The Contenders

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

Growing a little mustache, but aside from that, puberty hasn't fully happened yet. - NikBrusk

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

12 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. - BoredJeff02

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

It'll be 6 months later (25/08/17) - FireWasp2004

13 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

I wish I could do this. When I go with my parents, it took hours, but I'm sure it'll only take 10 minutes or less if I shop by myself, because I only buy the things I really want and need - FireWasp2004

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
