What does it mean when teenagers say "i प्यार you" to eachother, या when they tell their फ्रेंड्स that they're so in प्यार with so-and-so? It's not true, forever and always love, not yet, but teenage प्यार does exist. What is it, exactly, though?
Teenage प्यार is falling in प्यार at a young age, possibly for the first time but not the last.
Teenage प्यार is thinking about someone and no one else in your spare time, and fantasizing about what "should have been".
Teenage प्यार is sometimes saying "i प्यार you" not because आप mean it, but because आप know its what आप should say.
This isn't an attempt to pass this लेख off as my own. I read it and I thought maybe others would appreciate it as well.

This is my tribute to the nice girls. To the nice girls who are overlooked, who become फ्रेंड्स and nothing more, who spend hours fixating upon their looks and their personalities and their actions because it must be they that are doing something wrong. This is for the girls who don't give it up on the first date, who don't want to play mind games, who provide a comforting hug and a supportive audience for a story they've heard a thousand times....
