The Crazy Ass Way I Met My First Lover

  1. Went to a movie theatre (old Varsity theatre in Evanston,IL) Was watching film with girlfriend to my left, empty seat on my right, cute blond boy next to that...kept sneaking looks at each other, he laid his hand on the empty seat, I laid my hand on the empty seat...he stroked my thumb, I stroked his thumb...eventually we just held hands.
  2. Felt like there was no air in theatre. Our friends never noticed.
  3. End of film, all got up and in the lobby, I quickly gave him my name and number. He called me the next day.
  4. We fell madly in love and lost our virginity to each other. Dated for almost a year. We were 17 years old.
