What was your first relationship like?

Asked by nailpolishfanatic (6612points) August 18th, 2010

I am bored and this question just popped in my head. I myself have never been in one, but would like to.
I just want to hear about your experience, how old were you?
who started-you or the other boy/girl?
how long?
how far did you guys go?
and all that stuff, you don’t need to tell me all the personal things if you don’t like to.

My first relationship was with my husband, when I was 20. But I’ve told that story enough times.

My first crush was in fifth grade. His name was Craig, and his family had just moved here from England. He had white-blonde hair in a bowl cut, and blue eyes, and he was the tallest boy in the class. And, he was a whole year older than me (I started school early). So dreamy. We talked sometimes, and he picked me first for kickball.

Then Kristin, the popular girl, claimed him as her boyfriend, and my dreams were shattered.

Copy/paste that over once in sixth grade, and once in eighth. Always Kristin.

She made my life so miserable, I was almost happy when she got knocked up at 16 and dropped out of high school. Y’know, almost.

It started at the end of 10th grade, he was in 11th. We wound up together almost 6 years, but the last two I was away in college and he was cheating pretty much the whole time. He had cheated on me on and off during the beginning of the relationship also. Of course with the cheating came some lying too. But it was not all negative. He had a great sense of humor and his family included me like family right from the beginning. I also learned from him the value of family, his family was very close, and he taught me not to hold a grudge.

I met him at my first job at Chick Fil A. I was 16, he was 17. We dated for 2 years. It was a decently serious relationship for that age. It was fun. He was my first everything. I was stupid and too flirtatious and messed around with others and he found out. I broke up with him, we got back together a few months later, then he broke up with me for good. It was a bad break up. I was torn apart at the time. He wouldn’t speak to me for months. I would try to call him to talk it through and just to get some closure but he really wasn’t feeling it. A year after that we started hanging out again and now, even though we live across the country, we’re still pretty good friends. He’s a gem. Him and his girlfriend actually came out to Colorado to visit me in February! It was a lot of fun!

I was some teen age, like 16 or 17. The woman approached me in class and we started hanging out, then ‘dating’, then ‘doin’ it’, and that went on for 7 or 8 months until I broke up with her because I wanted someone else.

free_fallin's avatar

I wasn’t allowed to date until I turned 16. My first relationship was at 17 with the star of our track team. We dated for 3 years. He is still one of my best friends.

nailpolishfanatic's avatar

@lucillelucillelucille , wow, 10 years. I’ve never heard anything like it before, your first bf and you be together for 10 years?
wow

@Seek_Kolinahr , WHAT A BITCH!, -Kristin. Well she got what she deserved.

@JLeslie , aww! he’s a cheater, but at least he taught you something that helps in reality.

@deni , wow!, You ex visiting:D that’s kinda cool I think!

@Blackberry…. was she older than you? – if I may ask lol.

@free_fallin , and were you the girl-start-popular in school?:O

Blackberry's avatar

JilltheTooth's avatar

I was 13, he was 14, we dated on and off for…well, we’re still dating on and off 43 years later!

Austinlad's avatar

It was on my 14th bday. I beat another guy’s time and got as far with her as her front door. We dated all thru school and into college. The first date was 50 years ago, we live in different states but still email, and I love her to this day.

nailpolishfanatic's avatar

@Blackberry , Oh! :D

@JilltheTooth , that’s a long time!:O

@Austinland, wow! 50 Years and you guys are still in contact:)

Sarcasm's avatar

I was 16 (She was too; but she was 4 months older than I). We were good friends, we hung out a lot. For a few months, we heavily flirted back and forth. But being an oblivious guy, I thought she was just being friendly, not that she liked me moreso than other guys.
That summer, my family and I spent a few weeks back East. While I was waiting before we left for the airport, I wrote up an email telling her how I felt about her, asking how she felt about me. I sent the email right before we left. That night when I checked my email while at my Uncle’s house, I got a very excited reply from her.

Once I was actually back home, we spent a lot of time cuddling and watching movies. During the season, I helped the coach out at her volleyball practice (coach needed the help, I had nothing better to do, and I liked to spend time with her). First time I ever smoked was with her, we did that inside of a silo behind her house, it was weird.

The first time we kissed was the last day of school before Christmas break. That was also the day that we broke up, it was weird.

We didn’t really end in any “bad blood” but we haven’t talked in quite a long time. She lives in a different state now. So I don’t have to worry about awkwardly running into her.

nailpolishfanatic's avatar

@Sarcasm , lol wow! kissed, and broke up at the same time :D – really weird, but it’s okay:D

etignotasanimum's avatar

He was 18 while I was 17. So, he was graduating and I was still in HS. We met through a mutual friend and went to prom together, even though we’d known each other for less than a month. The whole thing was the mutual friend’s idea, but I went along with it because I wanted a date and thought he was sort of cute. :) It was my first date. I really liked him but didn’t think he liked me back, because he never said anything about it when we would hang out. Everyone assumed we were together, but I was too shy/awkward to ever ask him about “us”.
He graduated and we didn’t speak again. He has a new girlfriend now at college.
I guess it wasn’t really a relationship because we never acknowledged it, but it’s the closest I’ve ever come to being in one…

nailpolishfanatic's avatar

@etignotasanimum, wow kind of a strange story, but cute^^

My first was a summer relationship when I was fifteen, she was 15 or 16. We messed around all summer and had a good time. She liked to slow dance, but each time I would have to fight down erections. I was a virgin and didn’t realize it but she was rubbing her pelvis against mine all the time. Turns out she wanted to go all the way and I missed it. She dumped me at the end of the summer for someone who would go all the way. I still run across her occassionally.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Thesexier That’s probably what made me the perv I am today. lol That and Buckcherry singing “Kiss you right between your thighs”. Honest, Talk to Me.

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

Hmm, I think my first relationship like my last and current relationships began online, lol – through aol chat (classy, I know) – we met up around my house and liked what we saw, played pool together a couple of times…his name was Val and he was Jewish and I thought it’d never work (for his or my family, not that I cared)...we did naughty things in construction sites but no sex…he never told me where he goes to high school (he was a couple of years older than me, I was maybe 15) and I found that weird but ignored the red flags…we were a good couple, in teen terms…eventually he just stopped calling me, period. I remember I gave him a naked picture of myself…many years later, I learned he’s still showing that around – can’t do much but laugh at him…I understood too that he must have also been seeing someone else and she was allowed to be with him around his school and that’s why he never told me where it was.

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

@Thesexier -Wow is what I said.We did have little breaks here and there where we dated others and I narrowly escaped getting married to him! XD

nailpolishfanatic's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe , hmm.. I don’t quite understand the last part:/

@Simone_De_Beauvoir , wow WHAT A DOOCH!

@lucillelucillelucille , LOL!

Fleeting… was in 1st grade, his name was Fitzgerald. I left him after only going out with him for one day for a boy named Charlie. Charlie offered me a chocolate chip cookie, how could I resist?

@MoxieGal , Lol how sweet!^^
Chocolate and you are for itxD

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

Just goes to show women learn at a young age to make the guys ply them with gifts and trinkets. :)

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Thesexier Maybe we’re just not bright as a group. We start to give it up for sex at a young age.

nailpolishfanatic's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe , LOL!
Though I think all the guys have the same brainsxP

BoBo1946's avatar

not a good start…she dumped me! ruined me for life! not really, but it really hurt at age 15.

nailpolishfanatic's avatar

@BoBo1946 , aww ^^, Hope you are enjoying life now:)

BoBo1946's avatar

@Thesexier oh yes my friend… i saw her pic on facebook recently! glad she dumped me!

Aster's avatar

Sweet. Met at the church and he started walking me home. Then he gave me my first kisses, long ones, too, then I lost interest in him and he got a new gf very fast. Such a nice, cute guy. We were both 14 I think. I recall he smoked and I thought it looked and smelled attractive!

nailpolishfanatic's avatar

@BoBo1946 , lol why? Does she look ugly? don’t be offended I am just being honest as usual

@Aster, when I started reading I thought you guys were together for a long time and I thought the guy was an angel since he went to church. But the smoking and smelling turns her head down

Aster's avatar

@Thesexier well, maybe he quit.

BoBo1946's avatar

@Sexier——as a “mud rail fence!” never did know what that meant..loll!

I had a high school sweetheart. Almost all through high school .Towards the end of my highschool senior year he dumped for a girl named Treena. Treeeeena. I always say it so snotty. LOL The jackass.

Vincent_Lloyd's avatar

Haha okay well my first relationship was about 2 years ago I was from 11–12 and in 6th grade. It was almost the end of the year and my friend confessed to me that she liked me and I liked her. So we went out for a couple of months. We didn’t do much honestly. It was honestly very awkward to me. She always asked me “hey ever thought about making out with me” I always said no since I wanted to be respectful towards her and I didn’t want to get pressured into making out with her since I didn’t really want to at the time, I was nervous and didn’t even get my first kiss yet! (I still haven’t yet…)

On almost the last day of school I found out that she was cheating on me with some surfer dude…I felt sad and depressed and didn’t really eat for a little since of the depression….It hurt me thinking that “Wow…She was out making out with some surfer dude just because I didn’t want to?” I ended it and she didn’t care… I don’t speak to her anymore and don’t give a damn for her any more.

So much for a good relationship…..

I dated a woman for five years and those we got fairly intimate we had not had intercourse by the time we marriage. After a year of marriage, she was screwing a guy from work while she was still making excuses to avoid intercourse with me, her husband. I divorced her.

I met a woman who’d have more sexual experience than me but who had never been treated well by men. She’d never ever had an orgasm, despite numerous prior partners. She was the first woman who welcomed me to make love with her. She discovered the joy or orgasm and learn it was her right to expect a lover to fulfil her needs. She was my first real sexual relationship. I am grateful to her and I will always remember her name and her sweetness. We did not have enough in common to keep us together longterm.

nailpolishfanatic's avatar

@Dr_Lawrence , aww I am sorry about your first stupid wife bitch! as I would say, how can she marry someone and then be screwing some other guy from work instead of the husband!?.

I am glad that the second woman treated you as you are supposed to be treated:)
Hope you will find someone else who will last much longer together:)

Dr_Lawrence's avatar

@Thesexier Actually, I did not get that until I married for the fourth time nearly seven years ago.
She was worth the wait.

nailpolishfanatic's avatar

@Dr_Lawrence , Well I am happy that you finally found someone who appreciates you:D
Hope everything continues going well as it is right now:)

Dr_Lawrence's avatar

@thesexier Thanks

mYcHeMiCaLrOmAnCe's avatar

I was 11, he was 12, and it lasted for…. five days? it was weird, because everybody at school knew about us, his ex saw us kissing (awkward….)
anyway I don’t remember who started it, I’m not sure….
but I broke up with him, and it was because that day it was raining, and he had promised me that we’ll kiss in the rain, but he just left me waiting. and I got angry.

Vincent_Lloyd's avatar

@mYcHeMiCaLrOmAnCe Aww I’m sorry to hear that….Some guys suck I guess (not to offend any one out there) Their better have been a good explanation to it…
