This is the classic vintage way of proposing a girl who’s your classmate in school/college/university (and super romantic too).
Get hold of one of her books/copies and insert your heart in! I meant heart melted into a few (or five thousand if you can’t control it : P) words on a sheet of scented paper.
Adults have long reckoned with ways to protect adolescents from their own misjudgments.
Only recently, however, have researchers really begun to understand how the teen brain is wired and that some of what appear to be teens’ senseless choices may result from biological tendencies that also prime their brains to learn and be flexible. It’s certainly different from that of adults, but not in the ways you’d expect.

I hope that doesn’t make me racist but honestly that’s the 1st thing I think of (white male respondent) This respondent is middle-class with no black female friends, rare interactions with black families growing up, and who states his interactions with black women only consist of work-related experiences, yet, he expresses strong racialized, gendered, and classed views of black women as the first impressions that come to his mind.
Research also shows that black women are overwhelmingly excluded as interracial dating partners, with one study showing that white men excluded black women as dating options at 93 percent.
