* Day 19 – First Love

Discuss your first love.

This is a toughy for me, because I’m not sure if I should talk about the first guy I THOUGHT I was in love with, or the first one I was actually in love with. Let’s do both.

When I was growing up, in the ‘new age’ of technology and computers, I had my fair share of going to chat rooms. Mostly, AOL and the blue and red user names, asking your ‘A/S/L’ (age, sex, location). Which, come to think of it, was like the perfect question for pedo’s to ask. Hmmm… Oh well. I met a lot of people, guys, this way. One I remember to this day was a guy named Gene. I talked to him every single day. When I got home from school, I would immediately jump on the computer to instant message him, hoping he was also by his computer. (Old school, am I right?) Him and I both said I love you to each other all the time, and he even sent me a huge bouquet of flowers on Valentines day. (Literally, the one and only time I’ve ever gotten roses for V-Day.) He lived in Wisconsin I believe, and I was in Illinois. We never met though… I was never in love with him though, looking back on it.

My first actual love was Chandler. I met him on a dating website actually and he only lived one town over. I was about 21 or so, and of course we met in real life and dated on and off for about 5 years. I may not love him anymore, but I definitely did love him when we were dating. We had so much in common and had great chemistry. Even talked about getting married one day (planned colors and everything). We broke up several times over silly things, and some not so silly things. I moved out of state for a fresh start for myself, and we somehow started talking again and he moved out here for me. Unfortunately, it didn’t work out. We fought almost every day. He then moved back after only a few months.

And now I’m single cause, as I’ve mentioned, I suck at relationships. 🙂 ##

She is also just as comfortable being at the beach as she is standing in a pile of cactus. If you want to really impress this unique specimen, offer her a box of your best wine.
