@Knight- I've gotta be honest, I think that the girl would be greiving about the death of her family to much worry about her love life. Dealing with the social changes, a change in housing, and of course the emotional aspects of it.
Movies may show that, but it ain't how reality is. Sometimes, guys just have to accept the fact that Jimmy's girlfriend is someone he wouldn't know because she goes to another school. Stuff like that.
