    What happened with that girl?

    Hello.

    Is the following question grammatically correct?

    "What happened with that girl?"

    Context: We lived nearby. You know the typical story of the quiet boy who feels in love of the cutest and sweetest girl of the entire planet.

    Thanks.

    Re: What happened with that girl?

    The situation you provide makes me think you want to ask What happened to that girl?

    What happened with that girl?
    is also correct but it's a different question for a different situation.

    I am guessing the "feels" was a typo, but in case it was not...
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    If you are asking that question of a boy who has talked to you about that girl, maybe said he was going to try to meet her, then your question works. The "with" restricts the possible ways you can apply the question, however.
