From Gotta Get Some Bish Bash Bosh by M.E. Allen:
"If you're planning on going out with a girl, take my
advice: don't start over the summer holidays. Do it
in term time, when there's loads of other
distractions. Over the summer holiday, keeping a girl
happy on a day-to-day basis can really drain you."
Ah, but for a lot of teens the boyfriend or girlfriend is the major distraction.
I have one girl who was a very enthusiastic participant in almost every library program for the past two years, this year she has a boyfriend.
I hope she'll be back when they go their separate ways, but such is the world of teen.
