I was 13 and he was 16. He said he wanted to marry me, but that is just something that happens when you are so young...it doesnt always last, most of the time it doesnt. It ended because he lived 4 hours away and I had a b/f at my school also, so i didnt want to be a "player" so i broke it off with him. Probably a big mistake because my feelings for him will always be there.
when i was a froshy in high school, i had this mad crush on a senior. it lasted 3 years. but that wasn't my first love.
when i was 16, i enrolled in a summer university-prep program for high schoolers who had just finished 11th grade. I was taking economics 1, and i met this boy who absolutely made me forget about this other guy (at which time, i was still using this photo of him for a bookmark). I thought this boy was wonderful, handsome, sensitive, smart and artistic. We spent so much time together, talked for hours and just enjoyed each others' company. But he fancied a friend of mine. So I just admired him from a distance. I figured I'd tell him at the end of the program 'cause I'd probably never see him again.
We were studying for out econ final when we got sidetracked, talked about the ppl we were attracted to and the ppl we fancied. he said he liked me, but didn't want to say anything because he figured a girl like me would never give him the time of day. i was floored, so I told him i liked him, too. There were only 5 days left before the program's end. after class that day, we locked ourselves in my room and cuddled.
We kept in touch. And we wound up going to the same university. We dated off and on for several months. And as much as I loved him, we made a lousy couple. We broke up after he left school (he wasn't doing so well). And that was the end of that. That was in the span of about 3 years.
I fell in love again shortly thereafter. I didn't think I would, and in a way i didn't. This time around, I haven't been so selfless and trepid. I was so much more vulnerable then, and I didn't know how to handle what I was feeling. But I took those experiences and I learned from them. I learned that if you give all the time, pretty soon, you have nothing left; it's okay to take every now and then.
I think about him from time to time. I miss him and I always wonder what he's up to.

I had been dating this guy for a while, we liked eachother a lot, but it wasn't love - yet.
We were on a school trip to Chicago and they took us to Navy Pier ( on Lake Michigan ) where there was a huge tent for ice skating. He took my hand and we skated together...it just happened. I felt like we were the only ones there, just the two of us in our own little world. I ended up falling and he smiled, reached for my hand and as I stood up he looked at me and we kissed and it felt like magic.
We're done and over with now....Forever is never as long as it seems.

Etoile, even though your done, I loved your story . That is soooo sweet. I kinda have a similar one but he didnt kiss me after i fell.
Actually at my school there is a levy and i was walking down it with this guy I had a crush on. I slid one of my legs forward and scraped my other knee. Pretty embarassing, I told him "I hope that makes YOUR day" cuse he laughed at me. But he walked me to the ladies locker room so i could clean my bloody knee off. And i was wearing a skirt too!
Later that day he said "I am so happy today!" and i replied "Well i guess i did make your day." Things between us got better from then on. We never started a relationship. But I'm sure when school comes back around we will still be friends.

I first fell in love (this time it was actually love...not an infatuation that i merely thought was love) on Valentine's day 2002. Twas with my current boyfriend of 10 months. I can't wait to get my new guitar book so i can play him the love songs from Moulin Rouge!

i was 14 and so was he. i fell hard and fast. u know the usual, "gosh he is SOO annoying" and then well he grew on me. i didn't even realized i had romantic feelings for him until well, not until we kissed. it wasn't all that romantic. it just happend, and me being my somewhat querky self ran out of the room and ran towards my bus. he called later that night and we decided to get together. and in the short 4 months that we were together we went through hard times...and then he called it off. *sighs* oh well. i miss him, but i think i just miss the relationship we had. i actually went through this phase when i absolutely decided not to let myself fall in love. (im still in that phase) i agree that love is an amazing thing, i just don't want to get hurt like that again.
