What does it mean when teenagers say "i upendo you" to eachother, au when they tell their Marafiki that they're so in upendo with so-and-so? It's not true, forever and always love, not yet, but teenage upendo does exist. What is it, exactly, though?
Teenage upendo is falling in upendo at a young age, possibly for the first time but not the last.
Teenage upendo is thinking about someone and no one else in your spare time, and fantasizing about what "should have been".
Teenage upendo is sometimes saying "i upendo you" not because wewe mean it, but because wewe know its what wewe should say.
