What does it mean when teenagers say "i প্রণয় you" to eachother, অথবা when they tell their বন্ধু that they're so in প্রণয় with so-and-so? It's not true, forever and always love, not yet, but teenage প্রণয় does exist. What is it, exactly, though?
Teenage প্রণয় is falling in প্রণয় at a young age, possibly for the first time but not the last.
Teenage প্রণয় is thinking about someone and no one else in your spare time, and fantasizing about what "should have been".
Teenage প্রণয় is sometimes saying "i প্রণয় you" not because আপনি mean it, but because আপনি know its what আপনি should say.
This isn't an attempt to pass this প্রবন্ধ 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 বন্ধু 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....
