Question #5 Kiss me baby one more time

Asked by Merrianne (who is full of life and knows how to live it up!)

Question #5
When was your FIRST KISS????? And DID you LIKE it?
--------

Oh this is a fond memory for me! My first kiss was at the age of 13. I was "going out" with this handsome young lad that lived down the street from me. It was a first for the both of us and we weren't exactly sure how to make it happen. We had met up after school and gone rollerblading. We took a little break (so we could sit down) on the side of the elementary school nearby but neither of us could work up the nerve to make it happen (though passing notes in school we both knew it was going to happen soon!).

A few days later we met up again and went for a walk this time. After an hour or so we were back on my front porch and it had gotten dark. I was hoping so badly it would happen. We both stalled (not leaving) as long as we could but nothing was happening so he said he needed to go. Then he took my hand and pulled me to the side of the house. We stood there face to face not moving. I really wanted him to make the first move but I was dieing to kiss him. Then he said, "So, uhm should I lean in or should you?" (I hadn't realized how nervous he was too.) So we both agreed we'd both lean in and we had a cute little 7 seconds long kiss. (Ok I'm not positive about how long it lasted but I do know for sure I wrote down in my journal, haha.) So to answer your second question, yes I liked it. I thought it was a fantastic first kiss!!

Ah, the first kiss. Such an innocent, hopeful sort of moment. It's all anticipation and awkwardness. And yet, I think it stays with us forever.

Yours sounds like a great memory.

Mine, not so much--I felt pressured into it, it was gross, and I regretted it. The result? I refused to kiss anyone else for YEARS. Next boy I kissed ended up being the one I married. (Didn't plan it that way--it just happened that way.)

Oh cute:) I was the same as you...couldn't work up the nerve. Except---we never DID work up the nerve. I didn't end up kissing that boy...had to wait a few more years:)

I think I had my first kiss when I was 7. I was a hussie!

My first kiss, when I was 16, sounds a lot like this. Except with out the "should I lean in talk". But it took forever, every date standing at the door leaning in close and talking but never kissing until FINALLY after months and months we had this tiny 5-7 second kiss. HA! Oh such great memories!

So fun! That's great story. It's so adorably cute. It's these kind of stories that have my wishing I had had a first kiss when I was younger.

Erin said...

Very cute. And at age 13! I was the ripe old age of 14.

How sweet! Mine was on my 16th birthday. We were playing a game of flashlight tag called Jailbreak. We both were avoiding getting tagged and he leaned in and did the deed! Not nearly as cute as, "Should I lean in?" but I thought it was the bees-knees then! :)

Victoria said...

My first kiss... not nearly that sweet:) Ew! hahahaha!

What a sweet memory! Unfortunately for me I'm trying to block out my memory of my first kiss-it was really bad!
