This week’s question: What was your first kiss like?
I was a late bloomer with this one. It’s still a little embarrassing to admit that I didn’t have a first kiss until I was 18. Well, when I was 7, a boy kissed me on the playground, but it was a complete surprise and I ran across the playground yelling, “EWWWWW!” so that one doesn’t count.
But as far as first kisses go, it was a pretty good one. It was as we were walking away from a party, hand in hand. It was late at night and we stopped under a big tree. I leaned back against the tree and he leaned in and kissed me. It was soft and sweet, and there was no crazy tongue or anything. I later went on to lose my virginity to the same guy, so the passionate kisses came later. But I like remembering our first kiss. It was perfect.
Of course, the one that matter most to me, though, is the first kiss I had with Cash. It was on our first date, after weeks of talking to one another online. We were waiting for the train to go into the city, and he said, “There’s something I really want to do right now,” and he gave me a peck. I was a little shy and not really ready for it, especially in public! But it was a great first kiss, followed up by a lot more at the end of the date.
Your turn! I want to know about your first kiss. How old were you? Was it good or bad? Did you regret it? Do you still think about it? If you’re currently in a relationship, do you remember your first kiss with your current partner?
