No, I’m not in love. Nor do I have a crush on anybody. This is just a reflection of a conversation I had with another friend.

For the past years, I have insisted that teenage years should be spent only on things that benefit me directly in my journey of life – such as academic stuff or hobbies (MVC, websites, piano). Having a lovey-dovey relationship with a girl is clearly not in the list – not only does it drain away my time, energy and money, but also, at a chance, it makes me face a heartbreak.

My friend thinks otherwise. He believes that love can help him build a larger friend circle, more experiences of communicating with other people, and, in his case, better studying skills (apparently she was one that cares a lot about grades, or something along those lines). And to him, time energy and money weigh less than those things.

I think all of us here (well, teenagers here), understand that how we do in academic stuff are really important in our lives. Just out of curiosity, for those who date, why do you date? For those who don’t, why don’t you? (No, answers like “I can’t get a date” don’t work)

And seriously, I do NOT have a crush on anybody. Somehow this topic just taunted me after the conversation.
