This is a question My first love

I can't remember her name. Rebecca I think. We used to play monkeys in the rhododendron bushes at the edge of the big playground. She was lovely. We were 5.

C'mon, tell us about your first love

I was a fool....just like everyone else
It took me until age 16 to ask a girl out. It must have taken over an hour to get over my nerves and dial the number that night. I must have rushed my prepared sentence, as she asked me to repeat it 3 times.

Decoding the reply still haunts me to this day - she said she couldn't go out this week as she had her GCSE 'mocks' on, but i should call again next week. We chatted for a bit so it seemed OK. But did "not this week" mean "yes" or "no" in reality?

So next week...What did I do? Agonised for hours, then finally admitted I didn't have the courage to call again as it got later and later. TWAT.
In my defence, a few days later I did manage to make myself dial the number...but it was engaged. And that was the end of it.
(Well, apart from mentally beating myself up over it every single day, and trying to avoid her gaze every Saturday at the sailing club.)

14 years later, happily married (to someone else) with 2 kids....I still want to kick myself. Philippa, I am REALLY sorry....whichever way round you meant it.

And no, I will not contact her on FriendsReunited. Even though I've seen her details on there.
