Teenage Romance

...is there such a thing?

One of my students started crying yesterday during our soccer game - no, not because we were losing, but because of a boy. Yep, a boy. He apparently dumped her because "he didn't want a girlfriend right now". How many times have we heard this ladies? Sure enough, he's standing on the sidelines with another girl, that he apparently doesn't want to get too serious with (??) So, this made my little soccer girl cry. Remember when high school romances were the end of the world type of seriousness?

Ah, life is funny. but what is even more funny is when she and I were talking about it she said, "Ms. T, you are soooooo lucky you are married!" Hah!! I had to laugh at this one. Very cute. I didn't have the heart to tell her that I waited until I was 33 to actually get hitched. :) It might have killed her hope. Hee. Isn't being 17 fun?
