Are you ready to know way more than you ever wanted to know about me? I think you will see that it is all much less scandalous than I made it sound. At least I hope so.
#1 - I used to sneak out the bedroom window in the middle of the night to go meet my boyfriend and then sneak back in before morning.
TRUE. But it was quite innocent. The summer I turned 15. I liked a boy who was the cousin of my brother's best friend. Does that make sense? Boy and his cousin would walk up to our house, and my brother and I would sneak out the window (we had really strict parents - sorry mom and dad, but you know it's true - and had to get creative when it came to having a social life). My brother and Boy's cousin would take off to do 13 year old mischief, and Boy and I would hang around my dad's apple orchard. And we never did anything bad! He was my first kiss and that didn't even happen until the end of the summer. Then school started and he dumped me. The end.
#2 - I once kissed 2 different boys in the same night. And they were best friends.
TRUE. Although not quite as innocent as number one. I was at an after school activity my senior year. I think it must have been a stomp....do they call them "stomps" everywhere, or just in Utah? Anyways, basically a "non-date" casual dance. I sorta liked this boy named Jake. I thought he sorta liked me too. He kissed me and then told me he just wanted to kiss me, not be my boyfriend. Thus I was first introduced to the concept of "friends with benefits". Yes I was almost 18 - and a little naive. I got a ride home with a friend, who was also Jake's close friend. Coincidentally this friend happened to be Boy from the above story. He brought me home, and then he kissed me. I shouldn't have kissed him, but I guess I still had a little thing for him - being my first real boyfriend and all. Then I told him I didn't want to be his girlfriend. He said the feeling was mutual. The end.
#3 -I met my husband when I was 18 - cruising State Street, and he came back to my friends house with me and stayed all night.
TRUE. But also more innocent than it sounds. I DID meet my husband when I was 18. I was never a girl that went downtown and "cruised state". However I had an awesome girlfriend who thought such activities were quite enjoyable. I had just purchased my first car (I was not allowed to have a car until I turned 18), a 94 Ford Mustang. I went to my awesome girlfriend's house to spend the night cuz her parents were out of town, and she and her sister
coerced me asked me nicely to take my new car downtown to cruise State Street. Funny how I'm the one who got a husband out of it. ;) Now, the story of this night is quite amusing, and a blog post all in itself. One for another day. I will tell you that at the end of the night (actually the wee hours of the morning), he came back to my friends house with us, and my friend and her sister conveniently decided to turn in for the night. Leaving Future Hubby and I to chat and watch Aladdin for the rest of the morning. He was a perfect gentleman, and gave me a chivalrous hug before he left to go home. NOTHING HAPPENED!! But we were engaged 6 weeks later, and married 3 months after that.
#4 - I believe in, and practiced abstinence before marriage.
TRUE. I may have been a little too free with my kisses, BUT THAT'S ALL!
#5 - I kissed my best friend's boyfriend at the baseball park one night when they were in a fight.
Let me just say that I am highly offended that any of you would think I would actually do this to my best friend. Seriously! I am and always have been and extremely LOYAL friend. I never kissed a friend's boyfriend. However I DID get accused of this - I think it was Junior year. It was not a fun experience.
#6 - I had a boyfriend at the time I met my husband.
TRUE. Mostly. I was in a pretty dysfunctional relationship. For almost a year. I was 18 - he was much older than me. The age difference really started to show after first few months. We were constantly fighting/breaking up/making up. I had never been in a relationship like that. I kept thinking I needed to get out of the relationship, but never quite had the courage to follow through. During the week we had an ugly fight and I said maybe we should date other people - but was too chicken to break it off completely. He disagreed and we never actually agreed to what our relationship status was going to be. So technically we were still together when I met Future Hubby that weekend. Needless to say, I had to quickly break it off completely after meeting him. Ex-boy is how married as well, and I hope happily.
So there you have it. Judge me if you will - but I hope you don't! Please say you understand and don't think I'm a complete skank!
