Grades before dates
I kinda just stopped talking to this girl who I actually really liked at school. It wasn’t anything she did or said that made me stop talking, but at the time I just got back some of my exam results and they weren’t so good. My grades were dropping and I was freaking out. I was worried having a girlfriend was going to be even more of a distraction. I feel pretty bad about it, but it would be too awkward to say anything to her now. – Christian, 18.
