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'm still the same height I was when I was 12.

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

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

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.

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

4 You start to think about the future

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

5 You start spending time alone
6 You hit puberty

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.

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

7 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.

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'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.

8 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.

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

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

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

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...

The Contenders
11 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.

12 You get more calls or texts
13 Getting super mad over everything, crying, cussing and then regretting all of it
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.

15 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.

16 You get addicted to mobiles and video games
17 Your parents annoy you more often
18 You enjoy chatting with male friends
19 You are overflowing with all of the homework you have

I won't force myself to do Homework because it will waste my time.

20 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.

21 You eat more often
22 You become depressed or have anxiety

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

23 You perfect the art of procrastinating
24 You become more serious
25 You think about the future family
