Well, I guess not really, but I was pretty bummed about it. Why did I have a boyfriend at 9 years old? It was that childhood kinda relationship. The one when he asks someone else to ask you if you would be his girlfriend and you figure why not since you have no major commitments for the next few years other than sixth grade graduation. So that's how I got my first boyfriend at 9. Hey, what can you expect from a girl who started wearing heels at 11 years old. So how did he break my heart? The conversation went kinda like this:
10 year old boyfriend - Umm, you should kiss me (he was so smooth, LOL)
Me - No way dude
Boyfriend - Other people get to kiss their girlfriend
Me - So. You ain't putting your lips on me
Boyfriend - Well, she said if I made her my girlfriend, she'd kiss me *points to girl standing 10 feet away*
Me - Whatever, guess you got a new girlfriend then *boyfriend walks off into the sunset with his new girlfriend who was willing to give up the goods . . . . wench* LOL
So I learned a harsh reality that 9 year old shouldn't have to learn. He will leave you for the girl who gives him what he wants. I considered wrapping my little 9 year old hands around his gullet, but didn't. Instead I licked my wounds for the next couple years, enjoyed telling guys that I didn't want a boyfriend. I started dating again at the ripe old age of 12 (you know, cause I was so mature now). I was never single again. How is someone never single again from the age of 12 on? I'll tell you more in a little bit.
How old were you when you started dating? When was your first heart break and how did you deal?
It typed this entire post then save it proofread. I visited Natalie @ Mommy of a Monster and learned about the new word game that she and her blog friends came up with. Check it out. It's loads of fun. This week's word is gullet - one definition is throat (technically I used it in my post as neck, LOL)
