These are truisms known to anyone who has watched 10 minutes of a teen movie or spent 10 minutes in a high school cafeteria.So are some other old prom-era chestnuts: Teen boys are primarily—obsessively?It seems as though every teenager in today's age is always looking for love.As a senior in a public high school, and as a person that has spent almost 12 years of my life in the public school system, I can confidently make that statement.
