Denise let out a short laugh in response to Donnie's comment. Though she may of been able to give good advice sometimes, she wasn't so sure if she'd call herself wise. She was still a teenager after all and therefore young, she didn't have the life experience that Master Splinter had. Still though, Denise was happy to help ease Donnie in a way.
"Thanks" She said in response with a slight smile on her face. Unlike some girls, Denise didn't give Donnie a lot of flak. She didn't expect for him to do the impossible for her and he didn't have to tread lightly when speaking with her. She had seen girls like that around her school, the ones who expected their boyfriends to go above and beyond for them while they did the bare minimum. It wasn't really fair. After all, shouldn't relationships be about putting in equal effort? Of course, no girl should have to settle for less than those who treated them right- But some of them had expectations which would be near impossible to meet.
But then again, what did Denise really know? She was in her junior year of high school and hadn't been on a date before. So when Donnie went on to explain that he had looked stuff up about it, she raised an eyebrow. He was right, reading was totally different from experiencing the actual thing. You could spend a lot of time studying and taking notes and still be unprepared for it. "Well, sounds like we're in the same boat then" Denise told him as she offered him an empathetic smile, "I mean, I never kissed anybody either."
