Somebody has to say it........ teenage love is awesome, especially your first love. I might even go as far to say that *nothing* beats it, or ever compares to it. You know the feeling, sweaty hands... heart racing... big, stupid grin on your face at all hours of the day and night. Do you remember your first love?
Ten years ago today, I met my soul mate. And it is so crazy to think that time has gone by so quickly. I had just broken up with some jerk (you know, the way older scumbag that I was only dating because my parents hated him) and I was feeling pretty down. Actually, I was feeling like I wanted to get him back because I distinctly remember him breaking up with me over instant message and then finding out later that he was trying to get with one of my friends. Awesome. Anyway, I was babysitting at my church and we were out on the playground when I see this HOT guy walk by. I was very, very shy... but somehow I managed to spit out a hello and the rest is history.
I remember talking to him that night and feeling like I was going to throw up because my stomach had so many butterflies in it. I had dated a few guys, but none of them were very nice to me and it felt really great to be asked about my opinions and to talk to some one who seemed so genuine. I remember going to bed that night with a gigantic grin on my face, and then the utter shock and excitement when the phone rang and it was actually him! (I had always been told that guys play little games and wait at least 3 days to call a girl, and was over the moon excited that he called me THAT night!)
So, he asked me out on a double date (April 1st - we saw The Mexican and part of Chocolate, and had our first kiss!) and from that point on we have been inseparable. I quickly forgot about that moron I was trying to make jealous, because I was lucky enough to find a guy that didn't play games.
Sometimes I reminisce about 'the old days' when we were so young, so inexperienced, and so free of baggage. Everything was new, and I was so lucky to meet some one who made me feel so good about myself... he really pulled me out of my shell. Seriously, who finds something like this when they're 14?
What was your first love like?
