The first time
Do you remember the first time a boy (or girl) told you he loved you?

I do. I was sixteen. I was at an ice skating practice, and had called my boyfriend on the payphone while the ice was being resurfaced. I don't remember why I called him, but I remember: there in the noisy ice arena, on a crappy pay phone, I heard those words for the very first time. I love you.

I remember I hung up the phone with a grin on my face that I just couldn't wipe off.

I skated for another hour after that conversation, but I don't think my blades touched the ice during that entire time.

Current Mood: nostalgic nostalgic

Re:

Interesting! I wonder if it's because I started dating a little later in life than a lot of people (not 'til junior year of high school) that it made such an impact on me.

Well, I'm a sophomore and I haven't dated yet. . . my first time is still ahead of me ;)

At least you've had someone that meant it.

That's a very sweet story, it's to be expected, you're an angel.

I started a lot later than you too... I know I was 21, and I know who it was... hmm, goodness, but I don't remember which one of us told the other first. It was a gradual thing, and honestly, I think our friends noticed first. I remember the time we were standing in line at The Bakery (a po-boy shop) and Kara shouted out, "Oh my god, they're making noises at each other. It must be serious!" At least I realized then! I know she left heart shaped baloons outside my window in the French Quarter on Valentine's day... maybe that was the first time those exact words were used.
