I think you are right,I shouldn't assume that every girl would lower her grades when they have their first boyfriend, that said, you also can seriously assume that is "abnormal
". I understand what you are saying but perhaps the word you use is a little harsh don't you think?
I know many girls, incluiding myslef that lower our grades when we had our first boyfriend (no so much the 2nd or 3rd) because everything is new, and we are all
, daydreaming, and if the boyfriend is at your school (maybe not your classroom, like it was mine) you spend a lot of time going to the bathroom, writing notes (well, this was before Twitter, and text, lol) so I am sorry if I put out there my own experience, I totally don't think I was abnormal.
