  • Mood:
My first kiss occurred when I was 14 years old. We were both freshmen in high school and tried to date, but my parents would have none of it once they learned that his parents were divorced and that he lived in an apartment building with his mother, as opposed to a proper house with proper parents. My mother and father angrily sat me down and told me Dating Was Serious, and that it was the process of selecting a Marriage Partner. It was NOT to be done casually.

When my older brother would see me and my young boyfriend walking together holding hands in the halls at school he would immediately run home and tell my parents. My life was hell until I finally gave in to the pressure and stopped seeing the boy. I can not begin to describe the resentment I felt towards my parents for forcing me to do so.

Decades went by.

Then, earlier this week he found me on Myspace and we're making plans to meet up for a drink. Ha!

Don't tell my mom.
