All I ever wanted… Was a real kiss!!!

All I ever wanted… at age 14… was a real kiss!
Nope, not a kiss from the guys in my class (who were boy friends but NOT my boyfriends, big difference at that age) not a kiss from mom or dad and not a wet, all over your cheek, kiss from grandma (although I loved those)! NO I was ready for my first real boy kisses girl, like in the movies, kiss!!!



Bastiaan & me Kissing!







Whenever a boy or girl from our class would have his or her birthday everybody would be invited to his or her birthday party and it would be lot's of fun but nothing too crazy. On this particular Friday evening my neighbor boy had his party and I was allowed to go! And I just knew this was gonna be my night!

All my girlie classmates had had their first “real” kiss, and yes by this I mean all the most popular girls (yes, peer pressure is everywhere even in The Netherlands) and I just desperately wanted to get it over with, so I could talk about “that” feeling and the of course, GORGEOUS boys, me and my girlfriends would be dreaming about!

This was a very special party because there would be boys out of the BIG city coming! Not the hillbilly boys that were my classmates, noooo REAL BOYS!!!

I had this in the pocket!

I put my best looking jeans on, stuffed some extra pads in my bra… (Yes, I know)… Gave my mom and dad a kiss and told them I would be home by eleven. My friend picked me up and with our bikes, as in bicycle, and we rode the half mile to my neighbors house.

The party was in full swing but they boys from the big city had not arrived yet… Good thing cause I needed to prepare. The big thing, or so my girlfriends told me was, if they boy in question would ask if I would like “to go out”, that meant he wanted to kiss me and I better put a piece of gum in my mouth if I wanted to make sure this was gonna be a good first kiss..

“Oke!”, I had it all under control…



Bastiaan & me almost kissing at the farm in the snow!













Finally the boys from the big city arrived! Two handsome blond guys and 3 dark haired, even more handsome guys. One of the dark haired guys was the captain of the soccer team and he, according to my girlfriends was "the one"! After some initial shy introductions i learned his name was Robbie, he was 15 and loved playing soccer.

The rest of the night I was pretty nervous, but I “slow danced” on Roxette, Toto and Duran Duran and even did some sitting on the couch discussing latest “best shows on TV ever” with Robbie. It was almost eleven and I was freaking out a bit because he hadn’t asked me “the thing” yet! Desperately I looked to my friend and she was just shaking her head… having an “I don’t know” look on her face.

At ten minutes to eleven I went outside to find my bike and figured this was not my night after all and tinkered with the lock. Robbie who followed me like a real gentleman, helped me and while we are standing there, he asks me; “do you wanna go out?”…

My response: “Hu? Why??? We are already outside???”
He was looking at me if I just landed on earth from another planet, and for a moment I thought I was…

And then IT hit me!!! He was asking me to do some kissing!!!

Oh, I was NOT prepared at all!!! First off; how could I respond after I asked this incredibly dumb question and second; I did not have any chewing gum!!! Anywhere!!!

He came closer and closer, took my hand…. Put his other hand on my back… and we kissed…

I still had one hand on my bike…



At our wedding day KISSING in front of our farm!






YUCK!!!! my gosh, all this slime…. And this tongue…. And this slime… YUCK!!! And why is he acting like our almost broken, clothes washing machine on spinning cycle with that tongue… YUCK!!!!

This was nothing like in the movies!?!
I think it lasted 3 minutes... Tops…

I grabbed my bike, hollered to my girlfriend to get her butt and bike and speeded away, home!

I never saw Robbie again, and it took quite some time before I ever wanted to kiss a boy again.

You started my day with a laugh! Thanks

Patrice said...

Funny story. Great pictures! I guess it turned out alright anyway!

Clint said...

Great story. I was too shy to kiss a girl when I was a teenager. I wanted to kiss a girl but I had no self confidence, so I was 18 before I got that first one....and she had to take the initiative. Your post brings back the memories.

BTW---he slipped you the tongue on the first one? Yowza.

Dawn said...

Lana said...

You paint such a great story that we can all relate to. My first "grown-up" kiss was followed by about 5 minutes of serious teeth brushing! YUCK!!!! and Double YUCK! Your story made me smile!

Canyon Girl said...

I love the pictures and you know how to tell a good story. Right now I can't even remember my first kiss....something must be wrong with me. I have to think about this for a while.--Inger

Very nicely told tale, I enjoyed how it ended.

Julie said...

oh yuck!! I am so sorry that was your first kiss. funny story though. ;)

Jeanie said...

It sounds like "luck" was not with you when you got that first kiss. As bad as it was, I'm glad you got it instead of going home still wondering. I love how you just wanted to get your girlfriend and get out of there as fast as possible afterward.

rita jean said...

you are such a good story teller! I love real life stories...and yours are always laced with humor! :) I'll admit, I'm 18 going on 19, and haven't had a "fist kiss." Probably because I used to love to beat up on boys! Oops! :D

Angela said...

Oh my! That sounded just awful! My first kiss was wonderful!

Lori Skoog said...

Could this be a sweeter story???? Great photographs too. That is some farm you have. Our youngest daughter got married on our farm...it was like a dream wedding (as you must know).

Judy said...

That could totally describe my first kiss. I worshiped that boy from afar, and when he finally kissed me, that kiss totally cured me of any more worshiping of him.
Happy to say a couple of years later when I met the guy I eventually married, our first kiss was nothing like my first. His kiss was just like in the movies ;) It's too bad his had to be my second ;0

Garden of Egan said...

Very cute description of your first experience with playing tonsil hockey!
