Question

Hello, I'm 16 years old. I have fallen in love with a really old friend of mine. He's 18 years old and he feels the same way too. We don't kiss, hug, or do any of the minor or major sins to each other. However, I was wondering if it is haram to fall in love at this age? We both pray 5 times a day, fast Ramadan, and I wear the hijab. So, I like to think to myself that we're ‘good’ Muslims. One more thing, is it haram to have dirty and bad thoughts, even though if they are not shared with anyone else? Thank you.
