    We were at a club, dancing,

    and I was wearing a red tube top and black pants. He said he needed to talk to me outside, so I walked out with him. He said, "I love you." I said,"you're drunk." He insisted that he wasn't. I said,"I love you, too." The next day he called me and said,"omg, I was so drunk last...

    ..... It was a clear summers night

    and the mosquito a all wanted a bite- it felt like they ate me alive_ but his smile and the smell of the dentyne off his breath - sobered my naive sleepiness - and the awkward placement of his hand on the small of my back- gave me a tingle/ and the butterflies of my stomach...

    This is going to sound like a completely made

    up story but here goes. And I obviously can't tell the entire story so it may include some rather large time jumps. So I was about 12 when I first met this guy in High School and I noticed this guy(erm let's call him Darren), Darren looking at me. I was 12 so wasn't fully...

    I Had Already Told Him...

    ....the night before. We were sleeping at normal times then, so I knew I had a long wait to get any kind of response. I had told him in the most impersonal way, and had already stopped him from saying it weeks before. We both felt it, I just thought that saying it so soon would...

    We'd been seeing each other

    for weeks. Everything about him was perfect to me and I could somewhat tell he felt the same about me. It'd been off and on my mind for days and I had finally decided just to keep my mouth shut. We'd gone out drinking with his friends and afterwords decided to come back to my...

    I Wasn't A Teenager Anymore, And I've Heard It Before From Other People, But This One Rocked My World.

    4 years back, we were just strangers who found comfort in just chatting with each other anonymously. As usual, I didn't feel like putting up my picture or even telling him my real name. So he told me, he would do the same then. I was fine with that. We freely told each other...

    He was my best friend.

    For someone who was always there and made me feel like I was the most beautiful and precious girl in his world, I couldn't help falling for him. I don't know what I did or if there was something I said, but one night, he told me he knew. He was too smart to figure it out. I had...

    It was the night after he asked me out actually.

    We were just at a dance and we had a slow dance right before it ended, hugged eachother and he walked me out to my moms car and opened the door for me. Later that night he called me to tell me Goodnight and said "Goodnight beautiful. I love you" ^__^

    I Thought We Were Just Going To Be Friends

    We weren't supposed to even meet but fate took over; that chance meeting soon became me crying on your shoulder and from there a friendship of greatest proportions.  We weren’t supposed to fall in love; it was to be a friendship of convenience but suddenly one day, and...

    I thought it was a joke.

    We first spoke through text messaging, and we would joke around and flirt carelessly. When he said it, I had to ask if he was being serious or not. He was. I love you, too.

    I always wondered when

    and if he'd say it. I remember the first time he did and I'm so glad he said it first. I was in love with him too. It was spring break from school and I was really missing him. I wanted to go to his house, but my mom wouldn't drop me over because his parents weren't home. He...
