The Summer I'll Never Forget.

My first kiss reminded me of what you would see in a sappy love story. I wouldn't't change it for the world though. I was 16 and he was 15. We had met each other Sophomore year in high school. I can safely say that he was my first love. We had been hanging out for a couple of months just as friends when we started to develop feelings for one another. He was and still is a very shy, quirky, and lovable type of boy. I guess you could say he was kind of the nerd of the group, but had the best sense of humor and laugh out of anyone I knew. He wasn't't the tall blond built tan surfer guy whatsoever- but that's what I loved about him. He always knew how to put a smile on someones face, especially mine. I knew I was in love with him because I didn't't have to pretend who I was. He was my other half.

Anyway back to my story. I think it was during the summer of 06'. (Can I just say that any type of romance that happens during the summer or even Spring is the best kind of romance? Especially during the evening when the sky's are clear, the air is warm, and the smell is spectacular.) I'll give you a visual image to show you what I'm talking about;



I don't live on a farm with sheep lol, but the sunset and the open field is definitely something I can relate to. Our first kiss was underneath this kind of sunset tucked away in a corner of an old elementary school down the street from his house. We had just been sitting there and making each other laugh for a while when a moment between us just kind of sparked. I think it was him who leaned in first and gave me a small soft peck on the lips. I was pretty surprised when he did it because we were both so shy- I didn't't think either of us were ever going to make a move. It was definitely a butterflies in the stomach kind of moment. The scenery was perfect, the atmosphere was perfect, my life then was pretty much perfect.

Fast forward 5 years later, my life with this boy was definitely a 500 Days of Summer roller coaster ride.- (if you've never seen that movie, I highly recommend you do.) If you have seen that movie, I'll admit that I did have my Summer Fin moments. I let something that I loved slip away from my fingers. I had so many opportunities to make it right, but I was too selfish to let this person keep my heart. I knew this day would come- having so much regret and heartache. As of now I havn't talked to this boy in 5 months. I think I broke his heart far too many times for him to keep in contact with me. If I could talk to the little 16 year old girl at that elementary school with the perfect life, I'd say to her, "Don't ever let him go. He's the best thing that's ever going to happen to you."

Every boy I've met so far takes me back to how much better my first love was. These new boys don't make me laugh the same way, smile the same way, or feel the same way. I'm back to pretending. It's weird because I never thought of myself to be the sappy romantic type. I'm kind of a tom boy. I like doing silly and goofy things and I don't really care much about drama and all that nonsense. But when you're in love, it doesn't't matter what your personality is like or what you wear. It's like an explosion of deep connection and happiness that overwhelms you. And when it's gone, your whole world goes black. I wish I had some color in my life again.

Sorry for how long this was, I would love to chat with people with the same emotions or experiences that I had!

This story, and the picture, will always touch my heart. I wonder what's going on in your life right now. I just want you to be happy. This picture will be in my heart always. <br />
<br />
Maybe your summer has returned again, and everything is well now. Wonder if you will ever continue your autobiography here again. I give you my best wishes. <br />
<br />
If you can finally believe that there is a heaven, I wish that we will have a small village above, and one day we will always hang out there (when we all finally cross over), like childhood friends.

our first kiss was late march 1961 just before easter break from shool that year and i was going camping with robert and her mother up to the cabin with there grandparents for the next 10 days and we had a great life till 1/14/1967 when she was taken from

I FELT LIKE I WAS READING MY OWN STORY..SIMILAR KIND OF THING HAPPENED TO ME.I SHOULDN'T HVE TAKEN HIM FOR GRANTED. HE ALWAYS MADE ATTEMPTS TO MAKE ME HAPPY. WE SHARED AND TALKED EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN. IT WAS AN INNOCENT LOVE. BUT I SUPPOSE WE WERE NOT DESTINED TO BE TOGETHER. BUT I REALLY THANK HIM FOR THE MEMORIES.

Awww... I like this :)

Aw, that's a great story. I'm not the romantic type either, but that story was really moving and bittersweet. I know that our first love is something unique, but I know you'll find that feeling again with someone and this time you'll hold on to them and never let them go. :)<br />
<br />
Oh, and PS, you were 16 and he was 15? Cradlerobber! Hahahaha! Just kidding. :P

I still don't have my first kiss yet, because my conviction was abstinence before marriage. I am not judging anyone here, but sometime I wonder if I have wasted my time waiting for that girl who will be my wife, and I don't know who she is yet. <br />
<br />
Your 2006 was pretty much like that beautiful picture... Every body seems to have some epic love stories while they were in that ages. Had I missed something? Or am I undervalue myself here? :P<br />
<br />
Thanks for the beautiful story. I am really impressed by girls who see the qualities in a person.

Sometimes it's a curse when your first is so special. It means that you always know what your missing out on and it seems nothing else will ever measure up. Maybe it's not too late, 5 months isn't a long time. There's still time to colour the picture in....

Wish my first was like that...

"It's like an explosion of deep connection and happiness that overwhelms you. And when it's gone, your whole world goes black. I wish I had some color in my life again." That was deep girl, whew. Put very beautifully!
