The paper wishes to distinguish three different patterns within love experience at adolescence. The first, i.e. the most classical one, puts forward the drive-narcissistic problematics with the regressive capacity within the object relation. The second, which is sensitive to the enacting within a condensed form of adolescent love stories sequenced differently, i.e. re-discovered differently. The third develops the idea that adolescent love flourishes with reference to a fictitious third partner, always a parental one. Every experience builds a new third-person approach whose mission consists in self-interpretation of adolescences in process.
