A Teen Ager's Courtship Story... True to Every Detail :) Fascinating! ^^

Courtship?? it's still present. it's no wish for me... it's more of a must. here's my very own story

we started of as highschool classmates...
i'm closer with his friends than i am to him before...
he asked me if he can court me...
he started hanging up with me and my friends for lunch...
there's so much to talk about phone calls last until we fall asleep very late at night...
we met each other's parents in an unexpected meeting in a mall... -talk about total surprises
he started paying me a visits at our house... bringing some food or eating with the family then we'd chat or enjoy a couple of games or movies at the living room or this little backyard...i got to eat with his mom twice...
he started hanging out with me and my friends on groupdates...
there goes my roses, chocolates, yumm!
we have some petty fights and all when he gets jealous of my guy buddies or so but we're cool...
then he started doing favors for my mom... including having to buy veggies... (my first reaction?... mom?!)
and then for my dad... some souvenir from baguio...
we got the chance to meet some of each other's relatives... aunties, cousins...

he's been courting me for more than two years now... i'm 16, he's 17... we're in college now... and he's in a different college and lives in a place far from here in Manila... we chat over ym... call, exchange emails occassionally... but always there's the much awaited college break or holiday when he'd come home with his family here in Manila... he'd pay a couple of visits... some presents... stories...

every now and then my friends would ask how he is and they'd be surprised to find out we're still not committing ourselves to anything... no bf-gf thingy... just mutual understanding, i guess....

but really, throughout the courtship i grew to be interested in him... we got to know each other pretty well... and we've grown to be great friends...

someday i'll finally say yes to him so we can be bf-gf... but that will happen in its time... when we both are ready... we both know how young we are as my parents and most of all the grown ups say... and it's such a great thing that we both know how to wait... studies go first at around our age...

though he already had a short (less than a month) relationship before, everything's my first... and since he admits that first relationship he had wasn't so serous, it's fascinating how somehow we are each other's firsts... there's the first holding hands... first date... first hugs... (first kiss? i'm saving it)

everything's pretty new to me and it's fun that we're discovering stuff or growing together...

but how sweet was it when he told my bestfriend during a chat with her that he doesn't really want to be the first... he wants to be the last...

aww...

it's fun to have him around... it's sweet that we keep holding on to mere promises sealed with trust...

i'm enjoying our friendship... and whatever we have now... call it puppy love or so but in a way neither one of us can explain, i have this feeling we've grown to love each other already... i'm happy he feels the same way...

first and last?? i wish for it.

what we have is the closest i have to fairytales and true love... and when i say true love... expect it to be true... it's just that...

nothing feels truer.

 

i feel so lucky.

blessed.

it's always a nice feeling to love and be loved. but remember, when you love you are also vulnerable.
