Sorry, guys I was slammed yesterday and didn't get to post this week's question until this morning. So, who was your first love and what's the story? Was it true love, just a crush, or simple lust? Did you make your feelings known and if so how did it work out? ____________________________________________________________________ My "first love" was in grade school, 5th and 6th grade to be exact. There was a girl in my grade named Lindsley and I had the biggest crush on her. She was athletic, nice, and had a body that made my prepubescent hormones pretty crazy. Not that I would have known what to do with those hormones as I had never even kissed a girl. Let's just say she made me feel warm and fuzzy. So, on a field trip to the roller skating rink I gathered the courage to give her a note. This being the late 80's I, of course, asked her to "go with me". For you youngsters reading this in the 80's "going together" meant being a couple, kind of like "going steady" in the 50's. Well, she said NO! Flat out, no hesitation, she didn't want to be my girlfriend. Being a small school she told everyone else and showed them the note I had written. I was crushed, embarrassed, and humiliated all at the same time. So for me, first love was brutal. So much so that I didn't ask another girl out until college.
