Daily Prompt: It’s Friday, I’m in Love

Remember your first crush? Think about that very first object of your affection. Oh, the sweaty palms. The swoony feeling in your stomach. Tell us the story of your first crush. What was it about this person that made your heart pound? Was the love requited? Change the names to protect the guilty or innocent if you must! No judgement here. Happy Valentine’s Day!

Photographers, artists, poets: show us SMITTEN.

Of course it being Valentine’s Day today the daily prompt has to be about love of some sorts. First crushes to be exact. Ah, those first young loves are always special are they not? Mine was probably in the third or fourth grade. His name was Roy, and he had the cutest dimples. Blonde and blue-eyed, he was too. Such a cutie. One summer he moved away and I never saw him again. So sad.

Well, that was my story. Not very interesting, but then most loves at that age aren’t I supposed. So many years ago.

As I’m being a bit lazy today, I decided I would honor first loves by including some old-fashioned Valentines. Hope you enjoy and have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!

  1. Awwww…Happy Valentine’s Day, Jackie-P! This is great. It’s all about LOVE! XOXO My first crush was a boy named Tim. I was in second grade and he audaciously kissed me in the school library. I was floating for days. Oh, and he was also blond-haired and blue-eyed. I was such a sucker for blue eyes. 🙂


  2. Great Valentines, Jackie! I fell in love with the puppy! Happy Friendship Day (that’s what it’s called where I’m from) dear friend! Hugs!


  3. My first love was a girl in Kinder/First class called Anne. She was beautiful, in my eyes at any rate, and I used to like to sit next to her. She was a whole lot better than Gayly who actually said she would marry me in the first class. Thankfully we all grew up!!


    1. Yes, thankfully we grew up. I had a boy who had a crush on me in 5th grade, he climbed up a tree at recess and wouldn’t come down. A teacher had to come get me out of class to talk to him and get him to come down. As he said I was the only one who could get him to come down. He was a bit weird. lol


  4. Mine was in the 4th grade. He gave me a note that asked, “Will you go with me. Check yes or no” After school he took my hand and we went behind the church where we smashed our lips together and twisted our heads around. Boy was I in heaven.


    1. I bet you were in heaven. haha! Yes smashing lips together was a big deal when we were kids. Hmm I still like smashing lips together. Just much better at it now. 😉


  5. Mine was in first grade. His name is Rich, he walked in the classroom and stopped in his tracks. Our eyes met and that was the end of it for us. We were inseparable until I moved in 4th grade. But that wasn’t the end of it. We met up again right after high school graduation and were together for 10 years.
