True Confessions Time

I know this is probably completely awkward, but I'm so happy and pleased and excited that I have to tell everyone this.

Hi, I'm 21 years old and I've finally been kissed.

For the first time. Ever.

I know it's kind of ridiculous. You're probably like, "What? People wait? For kissing? Why?"
In my case, it was a one-two punch of firstly dating boys that I realized I didn't like halfway through the first date and then going on a dating hiatus for almost two years ("Dating hiatus? People do that, too?"). Most of my friends either: a) think I'm some sort of prude; b) applaud me for waiting because they're afraid I'll get pregnant (I come from a line of very fertile women, and I'm not about to tempt fate); or c) think I'm joking. Anyway, I guess my planets never aligned until tonight, when a friend I've totally been crushing on asked if he could bring a movie over. To "watch." It was 1963's The Great Escape, which is nearly three hours long.

We did a lot of "watching."

It was so sneaky and kind of Bollywood-esque how he surprised me. I was completely engrossed in the film and to get my attention he said, "I have something in my eye." I was all "Let me see" when he slid his hand to the back of my head and pressed his lips to mine.

And it was totally worth waiting, in case anyone was wondering. Totally.

I read this post with the biggest smile on my face!!! That is just too adorable for words, TB :>

Does the man in question know of your blog...and does he know that people all the way in South Africa know about "what happened?!"

BTW - don't feel bad about waiting. Becaue - I still am. I kid you not.
