Related to SummerSky's thread, how old were you and how bad was your first heartbreak? There was a guy that my dad work with, our families became friends. They had a daughter that was my age, she was a typical blond, blue eyed California girl and looked and was built like Hayden Panettiere. I liked her for years, but because we actually lived around 40 miles apart, we only saw each other occasionally. We would always talk on the phone and seemed to really know each other well. When I was about 13, I asked her on a date over the phone and really got up my nerve and decided I was going to ask her if we can go steady when I saw her?? Our parents agreed that we would meet on a Sunday morning at church and that she would go home with us for the day. I'm on cloud 9, we get to church and are seated a couple rows behind them, and for some reason she's there with some other kid. And during the service, he takes her hand crossed fingered. WHAT?? My heart was torn from my body! I could not believe after all our long talks, she never mentioned this kid, and then she brings him when she was going on a date with me. She came home with us and we went to the movies, but everything was spoiled as far as I was concerned. That night, I was crushed when I later found out that they had been together for a while. She soon became popular and had guys chasing her at her school, and I rarely saw her after that. I tried inviting her to a couple things and she always turned me down because she was always "busy", so I finally just moved on . When I was 17, my dad went to their house and came home and said that he was shocked beyond belief, she had blown up and doubled in size. He said she kept asking how I was and that she wanted to invite me to some activity. My mom was the one that first got pissed, she told me "hell with her", she played hard to get for years, now she's fat and alone and suddenly remembers you! She called over and over after that, not long after, I saw her myself, and my dad wasn't kidding! She looked like Gweneth Paltrow in the "Shallow Hal" fat suit. I know just because she's fat, that's no reason to shit on them, but I was older and was dating so I really had no time for her like she once had no time for me.
