like adults, some teens & high schoolers find dating relationships as confusing as calculus. Then again, you can hook up with the right person and it can
be just like winning the lottery.
More often, there's the awkwardness of the first date, or eye-opening experiences -- like when your knight in shining armor turns out to be a loser in aluminum foil.
Control issues can also become a problem (and just because it's not physical doesn't mean it isn't abuse.) On the flip side, that dream girl with the face of an angel could turn out to be the beaatch from hell!
