(CNN) Anyone who's been to high school knows how dreadful Valentine's Day can be for teenagers.

Those with admirers or significant others will get love notes, flowers and chocolates delivered to them in class or secretly in their lockers.

A Texas student didn't want any of the girls at his high school to feel down this year — so he bought every one of them a flower.

Jayme Wooley, a sophomore at Axtell High School near Waco, Texas, said he got the idea after seeing some girls not receive any Valentines the year before.

Sometimes, it'd just be a secret admirer or popular girls," Wooley told CNN.

"It felt heartbreaking knowing that not every girl was feeling special.". »

The researchers collected urine samples from 33 women for 15 days to measure changes in estradiol, progesterone, and testosterone levels.

Righetti and her colleagues found that both women and their partners evaluated their relationships more negatively on days in which women had higher estradiol levels. »
