Writing that post about how I’m a competitive asshole reminded me of my uber Christian ex-boyfriend. We dated on and off in the 8th and 9th grade for about a year, making him my longest relationship to date. But, don’t worry, it wasn’t that serious… sexually. In the year that we dated, we made out a total of three times. He was my first french kiss and it was just terrible. This is probably due to the fact that I’m super gay. Luckily for me, his mom didn’t want us to ever be alone together. I used that as a perfect excuse to never, ever be alone enough to have to kiss him.
Point of the point, it was the 9th grade and I was supposedly “in love.” While I was at Christian Camp for a week during the summer, my uber Christian ex boyfriend sent me one letter for each day I was there. Letter number 3 was this:
Kimberly Anne Wetter,
Why do I love you Kim? Ill tell you why, here is the entire list of what I love about you… hopefully I wont forget anything important hehe.
- I love the way you love me
- I love the way you smile
- I love the way you understand and listen to me when I talk about things that are important to me (usually hehe)
- I love the way you make me feel when I’m around you
- I love the way how you always want to be with me
- I love the way you forgive me when I screw up
- I love the way that you screw around and piss me off, cause then I don’t have to feel bad when I do it back 🙂
- I love the way that you love god just as much as I do
- I love the way that we have so much in common
- I love playing games and sports with you (unless you get mad hehe)
Well there it is, most of the reasons why I love you, cause I’m most sure that I forgot some of them, or even better, cause I wouldn’t be able to fit all of them onto paper cause they on forever 🙂
So there it is, in all of it’s glorious 9th grade perfection. First, my middle name is spelled Ann, without an “e.” Secondly, I was just reminded of the letter because number 10 is proof that not a whole lot has changed since the 9th grade. Thirdly, number 8 is proof that a whole lot has changed since 9th grade. Especially because there’s also a letter from this bunch called “Kim the Pure,” and given the many tantalizing topics of this blog, that’s changed quite a bit.
His life, on the other hand, didn’t really change all that much. He started dating another very Christian girl right after we broke up around the 10th grade and he actually married her and they have a kid. I haven’t really talked to him since high school but I did know that they were waiting to have their first kiss (yeah, like ever) on their wedding day, which was only a couple years ago. For both their sakes, I really hope it was nothing like this:
