    Ah, brought back memories of my first “experience” with a girl. I knew her from Band and I was in a lot of classes with her. We were both on the college track. She was one of the 4 girls who would be all be valedictorians when we graduated. She had the same boyfriend for most of high school but we were friends. I think she knew I liked her…I assume she did.

    After graduation, I moved to the east coast, but we kept in touch via letters most of the summer after graduation. I was coming back to my hometown to visit my mom, so we made some vague plans about seeing each other. The last letter I got, she erased a lot of the letter (it was in pencil) but there was enough that it caught my eye and I could read some of it. There were some flirty comments and a very affectionate tone.

    When Mom picked me up at the airport, she was there too…..that was a surprise. It was obvious now to me that she knew I liked her…I was going to be home for a week and she said “we could go out” during that time. She was my first real girlfriend and I’d never experienced this before. We spent the week together…..we hung out, kissed and it was wonderful. Then I left for the airport and never saw her again. I’m not ashamed to say I cried all the way to the airport.Report

    In my senior year of high school, I wandered by the mall and saw Shelly and… oh, I forget her name… anyway, they were both working the Easter Bunny Photo setup. Want your picture with the Easter Bunny? Shelly took your fiver and whatshername took the photo.

    They waved me over and we chatted for a while and the bunny held its arms out as if it wanted a big hug. Well, I’m not made of stone and gave a nice big hug. I asked Shelly “who’s in there?” and she laughed and refused to tell me.

    I still don’t know who was in there.Report

  3. The only thing I had close was I got a bunch of anonymous valentines one year. I figured it was a joke because they kept talking about my blue eyes and my eyes are very green. Other than that, no girl looked my way until I was … uh … older. Much older.Report
