My First Girlfriend

Back in 1998, when I was thirteen years old, was the time I started to become a teenager and when I started to care more about myself and how I looked. Also, I started to feel love for the first time, which is a normal thing for most teenagers around the world. I began to look for a cute girl to be my girlfriend. I kept looking for a while and at last, I found her.

Now, let me tell you about my first girlfriend, how we became together, what we have been through and what happened when we went out together.

One day, at the beginning of the first term when I was in Mathayom 1 (high school year one), I went back to visit my old primary school and to work on my web site. I went in the computer room and saw that there were quite a lot of students there. I walked straight to my usual computer and turned it on. I tried my best to ignore the students who were staring at me but I wasn’t trying hard enough. I looked back at them for a few minutes, then I looked around the room. I saw a girl with big eye glasses who kept glancing at me so I gave her a smile. Then, she turned her face back to her friends quickly and started to talk.

After the lesson finished, I walked up to her and asked for her name. She said that her name was Malee (not her real name). I told her my name then I started to tease her and her friends. We were joking around for nearly half an hour then they said they had to go, which made me sad. Malee said that she always went home by herself every day. So I went down to the first floor and ran outside to wait for her. When she came around the corner and saw me there, she was a bit shocked. I walked and chatted with her to the market, where she catches the bus back home. It made me feel good and I was very happy.

The next day I asked for her phone number. She gave it to me. Really, she didn’t want to because she said her dad is very strict and didn‘t like her talking to boys. She told me that when I ring her home and someone else picks up the phone, just hang up. I told her I would do that. After that we talked on the phone every night. The longest time I talked to her was for three and a half hours. I don’t know how I could chat for that long on the phone as we saw each other often.

We met every day after school and we always went to eat ice cream or take sticker pictures together. If one day I didn’t see or talk to her, I felt badly. I think I started to love her. My feeling for her was getting more and more every day. I finally decided to tell her how I felt. I told her that I liked her and then I asked her how she felt about me. She replied that she liked me too. I was really happy when I heard that. We became boyfriend and girlfriend then.

We went quite fast up the levels, from holding hands to French kissing in only three months. We loved each other a lot and we promised to marry each other when we grew up. Lots of people told me I was taking her too seriously, also they said that it was only puppy love. I never listened to what they said. At that time, I was blind because of love. We were having lots of wonderful times together while we were hanging out.

But it wasn’t long before we started to have problems. Some with each other and some with people around us.

Come back next week to find out what happened and discover why my 15th birthday was the worst day in my life.
