This sounds like the old debate about when a person is old enough to have sex, the loss of innocence, etc.

If vampires are anything like the people they came from, then the american puritanical vampires will be more against half-lifes than the Amsterdam vampires would be.

No one trusts anyone else to make their own decisions. We all think we know better for someone else.

You don't learn those emotions from your elders anyway. Perhaps you learn how to censor your emotions. You get to see image your elders want to project, moreso a public image. Parents don't typically invite their children into the bedroom to observe how to make love to another person (and I'm very thankful for that, I'd be scarred for life). I certainly didn't learn how to love my partner through observing my parents, though I did learn what not to do!

So, who do you learn these emotions from? Well, from your peers, and through introspection I guess. I didn't really know if what I was feeling was love when I met my partner. However, I knew I cared for him, and so I told him I loved him. I think a lot of people go through that fumbling attempt. We worry that others will think our love is not valid, or wrong, or premature, or just puppy love. We're not really sure what it is ourselves and we try to get our emotion to conform to the societal description of what love must be. Define for yourself what love means to you, and don't be afraid to let those you care about know that you love them.
