What they teach 14 year old boys at school

My son came home with this piece of paper today - I thought I'd share it with you.

50 ways to show someone you love them other than having sex.
  1. Give them your last Rolo.
  2. Say "I love you"
  3. Tickle them
  4. Pick them a flower
  5. Send them a romantic txt
  6. Flirt
  7. Kiss when people aren't looking

  13. Organise an 'I love you' message out the back of a plane
  14. Help them with their problems

  30. Write their name with a sparkler
  31. Throw them a surprise party
  32. Phone them every day
  33. Listen to love songs together

Yes, I know that's only 48, but on the piece of paper he had; they'd missed out the number 16 and had written 'Cuddle each other and fall asleep in front of a fire' twice.

This was given to a 14 year old boy!
