My First Kiss

... I guess all I can really say is, "I kissed a [boy], and I liked it."


Actually, to be honest, I was hoping that I would feel some guilt, some tinge that would tell me that everything my family believes about this 'issue' is true. It would have made everything so much easier. I would have been able to justify finding a girl and making it work with her -- thereby making my family the happiest.

But, nope. No guilt. There was no pinch of shame, whatsoever, no feeling like it need be kept secret/hidden.

... and you know what? Since our officialness, he was even included in my invitation to my nephew's wedding.

I think it's time I start giving my family more credit.


  1. The first kiss I had was really a peck... and it was my companion on my mission. It sent electricity down my whole body. I should have known then that I couldn't have ever successfully married a woman. Thank goodness for authenticity now!

  2. I'm so happy for you! And I think we both need to give our families more credit. Yay for open-mindedness!

  3. It's an amazing feeling!

    May there be many more!


  4. Awwww, sweet! I think you should keep trying it, it is a "practice-makes-perfect" sort of thing ;)

  5. Kissing is so gross. And kissing boys is even grosser. I can't believe you would ever talk about such a thing.

  6. Hey Andrew. Congratulations!! May you and your new 'boo' have many months and years of happiness. :)

  7. @Devin: I hope this comment gets to you. I want details for that story. I'll trade for details on punching my companion in the face after he literally asked for it.

  8. Oh, and Andrew, I'm glad you waited for me. :P
