Love Day

First Kiss. I was what some people might call a "late bloomer" but mostly my insecurities prevented me from accepting dates.  My first real kiss happened on New Years Eve of 2003/2004.  I was in grade twelve.  His name was H.  Unfortunately I don't have any pictures of him but I can assure you that he was adorable  He had dark hair, bright brown eyed, about my height, very built (football player) and sweet as can be.  

We had been flirting with each other since the first year of high school.  One of my good friends had always had a crush on him so I could never accept his requests to go out on a date.  We ended up being really good friends because our constant attraction to each other kept us talking.  One day I just decided to say "yes" because really I didn't want to turn him down again.

I remember he kept hugging me and holding my hand throughout the night.  I wasn't a big drinker and he was sweet enough to support me in saying "no" to the constant flow of drinks.  Our first kiss was as sweet as all the other ones that followed.  We didn't end up waiting for it to turn midnight to kiss even though that would have added to the moment.    

When the night was over, he was sweet enough to walk me home.  People who don't live in Ontario might not appreciate this gesture as much.  It was a very cold, 40 minute walk through the snow and occasional snow bank.  Looking back, the extra drinks might have kept me warmer.

I was a happy & giddy that night.  The sad part of this story is really my own fault.  With all my insecurities and fears... the day after NYE I began to push H. away from me.  I didn't want him to hurt me so I ended it fairly quick.  It's too bad because he was such a sweet guy.   Through out the years we have grown apart but I still consider us to be friends.

I don't blog and have no idea. I just like reading you blog. My first love is a love that has grown over the years. It started when I got married at what was considered a young age to my high school sweetheart. But this isn't my whole love story. This love continued to grow with each child that was born. It seems odd to say I am in love with one person. I am in love with the life we made together and the family we had. The love of my life is my family. My husband and my three children. I don't know how to seperate them and I don't want to. My heart swells with pride and joy when I think of each member of my family. Happy Valentines Day <3

That's a sad story. Is it still too late to maybe get things started again?

oh my first kiss? i was in grade 8 and brian told me he could get his bubble gum into my mouth without the use of hands, and i was like "oh yeah? i dare you, bitch!" and then he tongued me and i was like "oh sick! gross! oh eff, was that my first kiss?" and it turns out that was my first kiss. also, the relationship didn't last past that day in the park. and now i've just retold it here. a young love! but we learn from the past right? you must have grown from your experience too, n'est pas? always a silver lining! now when boys say things like 'i bet i can get you to chew on this..." i say "uh-uh, i know better".

Awe Mom, that was a sweet comment <3

Roshan I didn't mean for the story to be a sad one. In the end I find true love in Chris, who I'm building a wonderful life with. Last time I checked, H. was happy :)

Thanks everyone for sharing your stories of love. It's really sweet to read them. I think this is the first Valentines Day that I've gotten into.

Also, I must admit that H. wasn't my very first kiss. There were a few others that came before but I didn't want (i.e. dares or pushy boys). H. was the first guy I wanted to kiss & did.
