Hi there,
Please proofread these sentences.

People usually think (of / about) each other at the beginning of a romance, but when the time passes, they may argue with each other over some trivial things, which badly affect their relationships.

Thanks

Hi there,
How about this?
At the beginning of a romance, people usually miss each other and think of each other all the time so they may not be easily concentrated on their studies or work.

Thanks

It is grammatically ok, though I would probably have said "so they [are not concentrating/do not concentrate] on their studies or work".
