Now I know why he never even TRIED getting to second base
Or actually, come to think of it, first base.
(But then again, this was during the ancient times when 'serious boyfriend' meant 'holding hands.' Or a humourless guy. Fortunately he wasn't the latter.)
Last night I found my high school boyfriend on Facebook. I was so excited, because he was the only guy I ever went out with who attended the same school* as I did. The rest of the poor sods who took me on back then were all extramural.
I wasn't sure if the person on Facebook was REALLY him (he had a picture up, but it was kind of small and besides, it has been a long time). And even if it turned out to be him, I wasn't sure if he would even remember me, so I sent him an ''is this really YOU?" e-mail.
Turns out it IS him! I know this because he obviously e-mailed me back. He is alive and well and lives not all that far away from me with a menagerie of animals (no labs though, but I won't hold it against him)... and..?
Yes, my high school sweetheart is gay.
Which either means that he couldn't bear to be with another woman ever again after me, or - and this is far more likely - he couldn't bear to be with another woman ever again BECAUSE of me...
So now that you all know what we didn't do... what DID we do? We held hands at the movies; we wrote each other frightfully artistic letters (at least his were... and I wrongly thought mine was too!) which we stealthy exchanged in class; I giggled like a nervous hyena whenever he was around; and he performed his incredible musical compositions for me. (At 16 or thereabouts, the dude won an international contest with a score he had composed for a full orchestra! Yes, I dated a modern Mozart.)
*The fact that my high school was a performing arts school where most of the boys in attendance were as straight as Lombard Street in San Fransisco, probably should have been my first clue. Not to mention the never-even-getting-to-first-base part. Still, I was melodramatically crushed when the 'relationship' was over.
