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. - zxm

Nope, disagree. I had my growth spurt when I was about 10 and haven't grown since. Messed up - NumNumNum

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 - Mcgillacuddy

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

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

Um my teenage years made me realize I was gay - Manlypants

4 You start to think about the future

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

I started to think about my future since 2015 - CatLeena14

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

Yep I do a lot - Neonco31

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

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 - NumNumNum

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.

That explains my young playmate - Neonco31

6 You discover new music

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. - 3DG20

I like the song Happier by Ed Sheeran a lot. I also like Happier by Marshmello. - sadical

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.

7 You started spend time alone

Yeah, because you want no interaction with the outer world - NumNumNum

Not always - ElSherlock

Nope - Manlypants

true

8 You hit puberty

It sucks at first, but after a while you just kinda get used to it tbh. - BlueTelegraph

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

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

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

9 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

Heck yeah, but I was always like that. But instead of being cute now, I'm annoying - NumNumNum

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.

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. - BeatlesFan1964

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

Yeah from existent, to nonexistent - NumNumNum

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

The Contenders

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

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

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

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. - BeatlesFan1964

12 You think about sex quite often

Nope, nope, nope - NumNumNum

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

13 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!

14 You get more calls or texts than your mom
15 You enjoy chatting with male friends

But also with female friends - ElSherlock

16 You get addicted to mobiles and video games

I always was! - sadical

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

That never ever happen to me, my mom never let me go by myself in this crazy world. - CatLeena14

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

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

19 You become more serious

I actrally been serious this year then any years - CatLeena14

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

Literally the past year of mine

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 - Nic427

That's what I go through - CatLeena14

23 Your period starts

I got my period when I was 13 - Nic427

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.
