    Go back in time and try to remember that first crush.. the times you spent staring at your crush from afar and trying to come up with your best line. ( Of course it sounded perfect in your head.) Confess that awkward moment.. confess your first crush

      Hmmm...the first crush?  What a cute question.  My first real crush was when I was 14 -- a lowly freshman in high school.  He was a junior; a quarterback for the varsity football team; very handsome with an intriguing mystique about him.  He was dating a cheerleader who was also a junior.  I remember walking down the hall, past his locker as he was canoodling with the cheerleader.  I'll never forget how I thought with an absolute certainty that was rare..."some day."  We met two years later after he had graduated at a summer field party.  I walked up to him; he smiled, and I said his name, smiled sweetly and then walked away.  He said, "Hey, wait a minute.." and followed me.  We dated for two years.  He was my first love...and I still think about him today.  {Shhh.}  :-)

    My first crush was when I was nine years old. I was crazy about this little boy who lived down the street. Today he is still a good family friend and married. Every time I see him, I think of how crazy I was about him.

      Hi Dana, yes, we never forget that first crush it seems.  I know seeing him brings you right back to those days of your strong feelings towards him.  Thank you for sharing.

    My first crush was an eighth grader who lived about five blocks from me, and I was in 6th grade. I used to walk past his house hundreds of times, and someone wrote a note pretending to be him and saying that he liked me. It was a fun time in my life and many others to follow. He would say hello to me, but we never had many real conversations. I think I liked him so much, as he was a basketball hero at his young age. He took someone else to the 8th grade dance in the gym, and all the other girls  looked in the window and drooled over the guys who were with other girls. It sounds real crazy. I wasn't  popular but gawky, until I got to high school. Then, I acquired a real boyfriend.

    I asked a boy to the Sadie Hawkins dance in the 9th grade. He said "No".  I was furious and embarrassed.  I moved out of the area shortly after.  Years later his sister was my kids kindergarten teacher. I look at his yearbook picture and wonder, "What was I thinking" He was never my type..

    Oh, now, this is adorable ...our first crush ...Hmmm, I remember when I was in Third Grade just how terribly shy and scrawny I was, plus I had a crooked smile (not teeth) and crooked bangs LOL ...I'll never forget how this one boy made me feel.  He had lovely chestnut brown hair, sparkling blue eyes and the biggest smile ever and he was tall for a third grader.  I never really thought about anyone noticing me before until that one day we were all outside to run the 50-yard dash.  When it came my time to run against this other girl, just out of the blue, this sweet boy started yelling my name and cheering me on and saying that I could do it in front of everyone...I glanced his way and he was looking right at me with this big, sweet smile and understanding eyes. I remember my heart felt like it was going to leap out of my chest. I could hear him shouting my name the entire time I was running. My knees became so weak and wobbly that I knew I wasn't going to win the race, and I didn't.  I felt like I had let down this sweetheart of a boy and was too embarrassed to even look at him, especially after he was jumping up and down and cheering for me to win the whole time... Finally, I glanced his way and I was met with still a beautiful smile, kindness in his eyes and acceptance in his body language, plus he said "It's okay, you'll win next time!" and he said my name.  It was how he said my name too that endeared me to him.  I could not wait to go to school every day as he made me feel like a princess.  Even after decades have passed, I will never forget how special he made me feel.  I think his name was Michael Duncan or Duffy ...something with a D.

    Now, your turn!  Fair is fair : )

        Yes, and this answer is actually part of one that I had started working on a while back in thinking of poet Maya's famous quote about how we will always remember how someone makes us feel. I even have photos of the girl with the crooked smile and bangs LOL.  Funny thing is that I don't recall ever being able to utter one word to him, but just look at him with lovesick eyes and a demure smile.

          yeah..LOL.. it happens... I remember always thinking to myself today was the day to say something to her.. and when I saw her I turned beet red and started sweating.. I approached her and I think I called her a name.. a dirty bad name.. in my head I swore I said something sweet.. but in the princicples office many witnesses said I called her the C* word her name was Carolyn..  but it got all twisted.. you see made me spill some beans  smile

            Woo ...you bad boy LOL That was a major faux pas there! WTF Frank ..."What the Faith" In my head I'm thinking something nice. I hope you really didn't, for that is the worst thing to say to a girl ever of course. However, with the many witnesses ...oops. But when that chemical attraction hits our pea brains, who knows what will come out. Now I am glad I could not utter a word : ) Maybe you can spill a little more after each comment hahaha.

              Her name was Carolyn and I only got most of the ca-ca ca out...  In my head it was clear Carolyn.. no stuttering o no offensive word.. but my friend Tommy said I just walked up to her and called her a bad name..

      Faith Reaperposted 2 years ago in reply to this

      I'm almost afraid to ask, but what age were you when you were ga ga over "ca ca ca Carolyn" ...and what was her reaction when you tried to talk to her?  Did she walk away, laugh in your face, cry, slap your face, run away as fast as she could or what?  Were you still good friends with Tommy afterwards?  LOL

              I am on lunch break and came back to see if anyone else shared about their first crush, well, obviously not. I would have thought more would do so. Interesting that your first crush wasn't until age 14; some boys do mature slower than most girls though. Yours was not meant to be it seems.

                  Hahaha ...Yes, I can see it, you "Little Rascal" you!  Except for all the Darla s of the world out there who are game changers.  Even Alfalfa broke down and sang "You are so beautiful, to me" ... to Darla, and he was a member of the He-man Women Haters Club.  Yes, I can see it ...the bow tie and hair : )

    OMG, the memories.  I haven't thought about it in years. I was in the first grade and so was he.  I played Cinderella and he was Prince Charming, it was wonderful.  His name was Brian.  We laughed and had fun together and everything was right with the world, and then, HE MOVED AWAY!

    Thanks for the memories Frank.

    OMGosh !!! Frank, have I ever got a story for you - true, too. My first crush was on a kid named Jerry, but my best friend had a serious crush on him and I thought I should, too. I gave up on that fairly quickly though. My first REAL crush was on a really cute Italian boy named Frank - honest. We were both 14 - honest, I am not copying you.

    We were in our second year of Junior High at the first "sock hop" of the year. I was very shy and stayed behind all my friends, trying to hide. This new boy managed to find his way past all my friends and asked me to dance. It was an instant crush!!! I think we danced several times together. We had eyes only for each other. I was in love! and thought about him all weekend.

    When Monday finally came, I could not wait to see him. First thing on that morning all my friends gathered around me at my locker, teasing and praising me for being THE ONE to catch the new cute boy's attention.They were jealous yet happy for me. Finally, HE came up the stairs and headed in our direction. By that time, I was beet red and so embarrassed and felt like crying. He smiled at me and when he got close I turned away to hide my embarrassment the girls had caused me. When I turned back to see him ... he was gone!

    I never saw him again and cried myself to sleep every night for weeks. My very first crush and very first big mistake. He did not give me another chance !!!!
