Throwback Thursday — First Crush

Maggie, at From Cave Walls, and Lauren, at LSS Attitude of Gratitude, alternate hosting Throwback Thursday. The idea of the prompt is for them to give us a topic and for us to write a post in which we share our own memories or experiences about the given topic. This week, Maggie chose the topic of “First Crush.”

Here are Maggie’s questions.

  1. Who was your first crush? First names only! Her name was Michelle, but everyone called her Mickey.
  2. Was this a celebrity or someone you knew? She was the older sister of my best friend, Marty.
  3. How old were you? I was nine.
  4. How old was your crush? She was twelve.
  5. Did you let your crush know you liked them? If so, how? I liked it when she was around when I went over to play with Marty and I think she may have suspected that I had a crush on her.
  6. Did your crush like you, too? How did you know? I believe she was kind of flattered that I liked her being around even though my friend Marty would have preferred that “a girl” didn’t hang out with us. I’m still not sure why a twelve year old girl wanted to hang out with her younger brother and his friend. Maybe she had a crush on me, too. But we never talked of such things.
  7. Did you get teased by your family for having a boyfriend or girlfriend? I didn’t tell anyone in my family that I had a crush on Mickey, so no one knew to tease me about her.
  8. Did you feel like you were in love or did you think it was simply a fleeting crush? I knew it was just a fleeting crush. She was pretty and she had boobs, and that fascinated me.
  9. Was this just a temporary crush or your first heartbreak? Just a temporary crush.
  10. When you think of that person today, do you have fond memories of them? To be honest, this was six and a half decades ago. The only memory I have of her, fond or otherwise, was when she let me feel her up over her sweater one time when I was over at Marty’s and Marty excused himself to go to the bathroom. For a nine year old boy, that was memorable.

    My brother was a year older than I, and I was always around on Saturday when he hung out with all the ‘guys’. My girlfriends were jealous, but if they could have watched them sitting around making underarm farts they would have been disillusioned. Junior high boys in a group can be a little gross. 🤪

    Thanks for joining in Fandango. I can only imagine what a nine year old boy thought of that experience.

    I’ve thought about this a little, trying to remember. My best guess is either David (Cassidy of the Partridge Family) or Alex (the neighbor son although he was too old for me and his little sister was young enough for be to babysit)… not sure which was the very first. I think Alex had an idea of it, although I did nothing to make it known to anyone and I knew it was nothing serious. However, I ran across him at college a few years later and still found him attractive (his blond heap now long hippie hair and his feet bare on campus as they probably had been around home too like we all did). Nevertheless, our social paths were not to cross (and he seemed a little shy or introverted then). As for David, my closest (in age and genetics) cousin and I both sang and danced to this music; no teasing. I’d actually kind of like to know what happened with Alex.

    My first crush was on my friend’s older brother… Keven was not the cutest boy but he actually talked to me and had an amazing smile.
