Middle School Dance Begins Couple's Sweet Love Story (PHOTOS)
The longer you stay in one place or only visit a short list of places, makes you a closed-minded person. Being "scared" of something is stupid, unless it's big, hairy and has sharp teeth. The worst thing anyone can say to you is "No". You'll face rejection constantly. Even from a relationship, it's not you. Hopefully your friends won't let you get arrested. Find someone, of the opposite sex, that you can get an honest opinion from. They know the mindset. Be honest with them and that relationship will be better and stronger than what you tried when you dated.
In fact, be honest in every relationship.

MORE IN LIFE
I was eleven or twelve, awkward and tall, with long, spindly legs. My hair was a blonde bob which I had no intension of brushing, and I had never touched makeup in my life. My biggest interests were my friends, Pokemon, reading, and a slightly unhealthy obsession with dog breeds. The girls looked nothing like me. I might have had budding breasts, but these girls prided themselves on being skinny, flat-chested, boy-crazy, into cheerleading and hating to read.
Needless to say, I was the odd sheep out in that Johnston Middle School classroom. My interest in boys was… zilch. Regardless of the obvious issues associated with it i. The girls in my class proudly asked boys out and were asked out on dates themselves. I even asked the class once why anyone would date right now.
The class laughed at me. The class laughed at me again. I soon changed my animosity towards dating, but it was probably due more peer-pressure than a real desire to date. Even in ninth grade, when I went on my first date, it was one of the most awkward experiences of my life. I was asked out via note in class, passed from my friends to his friends and back. The date itself consisted of playing Dance Dance Revolution at the local movie theater and being dropped off and picked up by our parents.
I had heard rumors about him that both horrified and fascinated me. Once he tried to touch my boobs. I laughed and pushed him away. I was his girlfriend, he was my boyfriend. I thought that when you had your first kiss, it was supposed to be sparks flying and rainbows and maybe some music would play… But it was just a kiss, and we really never kissed again after that.
I found myself getting sick at the thought of seeing him. All I wanted at age 14 was pretty much the same things I wanted when I was 12; I wanted to watch Lord of the Rings with my friends, not him.
I wanted a dog. I wanted to play Petz and The Sims on my computer. In high school, I went on a date with one of my good guy friends. After the date, he called me his girlfriend, and I freaked out. I realized that when my mom had laughed at me when I tried to explain that going on a date meant that you were now an item, she had been completely right. It was freeing to be able to hang out with a guy and not have to worry if this meant I had to change my Facebook status. At the end of 6th grade I called my boyfriend's house phone to break up with him but it went to voicemail so i broke up with him on the voicemail.
Had my first kiss at my 8th grade formal behind this makeshift curtain decoration in the hallway, only for it to be pulled open by a teacher right after we kissed. Then we had to walk back into the dance being escorted by the teacher, and when he tried to hold my hand she yelled at him. My first kiss was at our dance at camp while slow dancing with the boy I had a huge crush on..

This one time in 5th grade I wrote the boy I liked a love letter and stuck it in his backpack and he thought it was lunch money and so he gave it to the cafeteria ladies and they all read it and the whole faculty found out and it was awful.
