I agree with Post 7.  Poetry is really not "in" among teens in any serious way.  It's seen as something for school and for greeting cards. So I don't think that love poems are at all interesting to most teens.  Of course, you can see songs as a form of poetry.  If you do, then love poetry is of interest.

I'm guessing that songs about love are most popular among teenagers, who are at the age when love seems to be an especially pressing matter of attention. Poems about love -- especially those that are taught in schools -- probably strike many teens as too artificial and remote from everyday experiences.

From my experience teaching 14-15 year olds, most will openly say they are not interested; however, after teaching them about metaphors and other figures of speech, how to find meaning in poems, and that most poems are more intellectual than they are emotional, students tend to warm up to the subject. Take Shakespeare's Sonnet 18, for example; this can be considered a love poem, but after breaking down the intellectual meanings behind the figures of speech, students can see that the speaker of the poem is logically weighing reality with the world's perception of love. In the end, the speaker proves his love because he recognizes the frailties of life and he didn't have to whine, complain, or grovel about love. After reassuring students that poetry doesn't have to be an emotional task, they appreciate it more; and, some of the boys actually wanted to learn how to write poems like that for future use in dating! :)

Yes, students today are very much into love poems, especially love poems that are set to music (i.e. pop songs). There are a number of poems, too, the kind written on paper with no musical accompaniment, that inspire kids. In fact, the Internet has allowed hundreds of thousands of teenagers to post their work online and read the work of other young writers. Is all of it good? No. But it does display a certain popularity.

Well, me being a teenager myself, I believe I can answer this. Whether correctly, however, that is a different story entirely and that is up to the people who may respond to me. =P I believe they're interested in it because they're at the age where love or relationships might be the most appealing to them. They may love it because they can relate it to their lives, whether they just had a bad breakup,  are chasing after someone who's not interested, or just got their first boy/girlfriend. This is the stage in life where people think of relationships the most idealisticly I believe, and the stage where most people start dating. (Granted, this is just a opinion, i'm not really so sure. I am merely just stating my own opinion)

Definitely they do! But considering the word 'nowadays', their interest has deteriorated. This has been observed due to the introduction of other sites where their fantasies about love and relationships can be fulfilled. Teenagers at their stage have their interest centered in such issues and they are so interested in areas concerning love and relationships. Before the introduction of the internet where they can download all issues concerning love and relationships, teenagers were very much interested in love literature. They would read all the love poems they would came across as well as any other love literature. Teenagers prefer love literature because its from it that they are able to get insights concerning the world of love. They find it fascinating since they are new in the world. When it comes to examinations, teenagers prefer love literature to others. This is mainly because the love literature to them seems easily understandable compared to the others pieces of literature. According to my observation  teenagers are still interested in love poems and other love literature though not as much as they used to there before.

From the opinion of my, I do not agree all of it. When it comes to the interest of one group,we need to Separate the group into distinct parts. Based on the research of the character of every group,we can reach a science conclusion. In response to your question, I argue that teenagers borned after 1990 would like to follow the popular culture, not matter what it is. In the field of poem,it is the same. Out of Love is one of the constant theme in human history,and love story is attractive to everyone, in a sense,  what you said really make a bit sense.
