We would sometimes call each other on the phone, would hang out at recess, but never dared to hold hands and definitely did not kiss.
Though actually, there was the one time we held hands at the monthly skating party when pressured by all of our friends to skate together during the couples skate.
Mostly, I think I was in it for the presents. Valentines Day, St. Patrick's Day, Easter- and and every little excuse to give each other a present. I remember the box of chocolates on Valentines Day, the Troll doll with green hair on St. Patrick's day, and a little stuffed bunny on Easter.
The school year ended and I went about my summer as usual not talking to my boyfriend once. The new school year began, we were the first 6th graders at the grade schools, having just switched it from the junior high, so we were once again the big men on campus. I ended up in the same class as my boyfriend. His best friend asked if we were still "going out". "Umm yea, I guess" I replied, and so our relationship continued.
It think it might have been around Halloween, the first Holiday back together after this new school year and he did not get me a present!
We broke up after that.
Thankfully my relationships got a little less superficial over the years.
Who was your first Valentine?
