Turn Back The Hands Of Time

Updated on June 27, 2010

First Kiss

I remember the first time I noticed boys, I was nervous, and didn't know why I had these feelings . I didn't know what to do. I was 16 years old, and this boy pursued me for two weeks. He knew or could tell that I was attracted to him. He asked his sister to ask me out to see a movie with them; I told her he needed to ask my parents. He came over and introduced himself to my parents and asked if it would be ok for me to double date with his older sister. My parents were impressed by him, and we went to a drive-in movie, and don't ask me what the movie was about, because I don't remember,my whole focus was on this boy. He held my hand and we talked about mostly our friends. The next day at school I couldn't wait to tell my friends about this boy named Noe. They all were so envious because he was so handsome. Noe followed me at lunch and stopped me and ask if I had a good time at the movies. I said, "Yes I did", and before I knew it he took me in his arms and kissed me. Oh my goodness! My first kiss! I thought I was going to faint. He walked me to my class, and I felt like I was walking on a cloud the entire time. I will never forget that kiss. I was so in love, but this wasn't his first kiss. I have always wondered what became of him.

Girls Now a days.

Things have changed so much since then. Boy that's the truth, it seems that girls are so forward now a days, for example, Just look at the way that they dress, showing belly, butt, breast, and they have a different way of interacting with their girlfriends also. If I did, or said the things they do, back then they would have thought I was a lesbian.  I can't believe the way they act, its way out there. No wonder the boys are the way they are concerning girls. I would like to see a boy now ask for permission to date, and have a chaperone. Girl's are getting pregnant at the age of thirteen unbelievable!

Shame on the parents and the schools that let their children dress and wear makeup at that age. Also society has to take part of the blame because sex is everywhere. You can't get away from it.

Showing your Knees

Those were the days my school had a dress code. Unlike today , back then I couldn't wear jeans for crying out loud. Things have really changed and not for the good.I believe it all started in the seventies when pot was free flowing, and so was the sex.That's where the young teens started pushing themselves away from their parents. No more respect for authority of any kind, school, teachers ,principals, police, and mother and fathers. I believe that's when it all got started. I remember when I was at school one day and a parent came to the principal's office to shout at the principal for disciplining his child. His child by the way, had slapped a teacher. Still the parent was so mad at the authority figures instead of being upset with his child. Unbelievable! Later I found out that this boy was put in jail for committing a crime. I think it was assault and because of his prior record he did some time in the big house. I am sure his father was still protecting him. Some times parents wear blinders about their own children. I guess this parent never heard of tough love.

Do you remember your first kiss?

      great hub.very relevent in contemporary times! I am from India which is a beautiful country. We are taught right from the childhood a value system which entails 'respecting our elders' amongst other things.A teacher is a very important and respected figure in a student's life.Even in our religious texts,we are told to give more respect to one's "guru" or teacher than to one's parents as the teacher guides us always.Guru is composed of the syllables gu and ru, the former signifying 'darkness', and the latter signifying 'the destroyer of that [darkness]', hence a guru is one characterized as someone who dispels spiritual ignorance (darkness), with spiritual illumination (light)!!!

      hi rose

      I enjoyed this, I feel that way and I'm grateful my Mom me what you were taught

      I value values

      I also agree things have gotten "cheap" as I put it

      It really isn't quality

      My bf grew up like you said in the 70's

      He's nice but is a bit too worldly

      It's a conflict sometimes

      It confuses me

      thankyou rose

      Gpage thanks for your feed back. Sex is every where on the tv on the radio, on books,on commercials, on bill books. Cant get away from it. Its also the saying "If you cant be with the one you love then love the one your with." Thats when it all started.

      Some things are merely fashion, but some things really are a problem with the way people think. Too much focus is placed on materialism, what we have and what we don't have, and people tend to respect those who have money, and disrespect those who don't. They don't call it that, but note the expectations of today, and most involve having enough money to do them. Few are related to behaviors that only include love, caring, or respect without a need to pay for something. Hopefully, I'm making sense. For instance, we expect people to live in nice houses and keep their yards nice. This cost money, but it earns our respect. Take someone who lives in a house that is falling apart, and cannot afford to have their yard done, and people will look down on that person. Anyway, hope I made myself clear. Good thoughts. (: v

      WB, you are absolutely right. That's how I remember the tattoo area. That's so funny.And yes I would be scared if I had a teen age girl right now. I think grown ups have dropped the ball for sure any thing goes now, God help us.

      Rose, I think it all started with my generation...we were mid-60's high school grads. It was the love generation. Many of the kids felt everything was wrong..shooting presidents, Vietnam, civil rights, etc. In the 70's we got married, became parents (they should fixed all of us) and proceeded to create a bunch of kids who were given everything that were were denied in all lives. They in turn grew up and created their kids. In some ways, we are not much better than the cockroaches in that we continue to exist but our gene pool is not improving. I can remember a day when tatoos were considered the mistakes of drunken sailors and multiple body piercing was associated with real low-lifes. We have come a long way, baby! Can you imagine how the children the tatoo/body piercing generations will turn out? Scary stuff huh? Thanks for a good write. WB

      Nice hub and you are so right about young ladys these days, there are no limits anymore and many girls are being raised with very little morals. Nice job. Cheers.
