Wanting to Know you Wens.

how old were you when you had your first kiss?  {first real kiss}

what was his name? 

where were you at?

i was 10.

his name was Andre. he was shorter than me. 

it was after a school dance... i remember thinking "where are the fireworks?" 

he walked me home and held my hand... neither of us saying anything. 
i was nervous wondering if he was going to kiss me again at my doorstep. 

into our 20's he found me on facebook and once commented on a photo of me saying, "can you believe she was my first kiss?" {sweetness}

your turn! : please leave your answers in the comments? :

Are you ready to participate in another photo round-up next week? my idea was inspired by this engagement photobooth strip:

send me a photobooth strip of yours (with your lovers, ex-lovers, best friends, mom, dog... or just you!) from any time in your life to

you'll see yours right here on Dolce Vita next Wens.

I'm so excited about this one!

15. Halloween. AJ. Not the most romantic moment, and I think that was the only time we kissed!

I wish I could locate a really old fashioned photo booth, the photos are always so cute.

Tiffany said...

Wow, my first kiss...haven't thought about that in a long time!

I had just turned 13 and was spending the summer in Iowa with my aunt.

His name was Jamie, and he was older....and so cute!! haha.

We had went to the movies with his uncle, who was his age, to see Batman Forever. After the movie we stopped to get gas and he kissed me. I remember that moment very clearly...Kiss from a Rose was playing on the radio!

I left Iowa a week later to go to England, we wrote a few letters while I was there...but I haven't seen or talked to him since.

Awww...great memories...

I'll have to scan my photo strip of my and my's from the State Fair of Texas...where he proposed to me under Big Tex!! =)

I was 14. His name was Sam- he was in high school when I was in 8th grade. I KNOW_ super cool. We went to see Center Stage. He kissed me during the movie- the ice cream part. I was soooo nervous.

A couple months later- in high school- I met a girl who had the biggest crush on him, but he was dating her friend. He was dating her friend when I thought he was "dating" me. 14 years old and I was already the other woman...

Marz said...

I love reading the comment to your wanting to know you wed series!!! :) They are so adorable!!!!

Oh Andre...he was such a cutie!!!! :)

I was older than you lol prob 12? We were living in Germany at the time and his name was Bobby. It was after we had gone to the movies and we were downstairs in the storage area of the building we lived in.

Remember that oldies song I use to listen to? Marcie Blaine sang:
"When people ask of me What would you like to be
Now that your not a kid anymore (You're not a kid anymore)

I know just what to say
I answer right away
There's just one thing
I've been wishing for...

I want to be Bobby's girl
I want to be Bobby's girl
That's the most important thing to me..."

HAHAHA memories! :)

I was in 8th grade so I guess I was about 14.
His name is Steven Chavers.
It was in his room. It turned into a KISS and his mom walked in the room and quickly turned around! I was so embarrassed!
We had a joke that I could get the gum from his thats how it always ended up starting! lol

This gives me an excuse to find a photobooth!! Ive been wanting pictures like this forever!!!

Oh, FUN.

I was 14...and the older woman! It was at the cast party of a play we were both in. He had an angel face.

Rhianne said...

Yikes, I haven't thought about that in a while - I think I was 14/15, it was with a boy called keiran who was really cute at a school disco and honestly, it was terrible. I don't think I ever talked to him afterwards either lol.

I don't think I have any photostrips with anyone :(

Carolyn said...

Steve 16 first boyfriend first kiss at the beach...we were HS Sweethearts. Now many many years later we are FB friends! Aw thanks for the trip down memory lane

erin elder said...

I was 14.... and it was with a boy i met at the fair in 4-H... yep, we were young little hillbillies. His name was Greg, and we were on our first real date at the movies. He was a year older... and played football, such a sweetie...

We are still very good friends... in fact he married a girl I used to surf with. Funny how things turn out...

kittycat said...

i was 15 years old! his name was kris and we were at the movies. he actually ASKED me if he could kiss me haha

and i will DEFINITELY be sending you a photobooth strip of i just need to pick which one! :)

i hope you're doing good !

Lauren Nicole said...

10. like my caela, i had/have a thing for older guys and he was 14, almost 15.

our parents knew one another from work and his family was over for the fourth of july.

his name was jonathan potter. (how is it you remember your firsts' names? geez!)

it wasn't weird or magical or any sort of basic description. it was just a good kiss.

what was even better, looking back, is that he liked me just as i liked him, which i've had trouble with ever since that moment. so that's always a great part of that memory, that i was liked back and it was mutual, you know?

a lot of people don't like that, when they ask these things and they get the answer w/ the age difference. but as you know, i was never "in my mind or soul" the earthly age i was. so, it's never made sense to me why people make such a big deal about age differences. (unless of course, there's like a 30 yr difference - that's just odd.)

so, yep. haha.

<3 <3

Lauren Nicole said...

i was 14. he was my first boyfriend. it was on my bed and he was wonderful. we broke up a couple of months later, but are still friends to this day.

Claire Kiefer said...

Micaela, this is by far your cutest one yet. :)

My first "real" kiss was with Abe. We met when I was about 12 or 13--he worked in the kitchen at my dad's restaurant--but he first kissed me right after I turned 15. We were in my room on my bed, and I was so nervous and it was so sweet. He was my first "real" boyfriend, too, and we were together all throughout high school. He was a couple years older--lived on his own--had a baby (yikes)--and was the sweetest guy I've ever been with to date, ha!

We're facebook friends, and I'm still really close to his younger sister. Once in a while, my mom runs into him around town. Although we definitely went in opposite directions, I still think of him very fondly!


Not sure about photobooths--I'm sure I have strips around--for instance, Jaime and I took then at my sister's wedding--but I don't have a scanner. Conundrum.


Summer {Bisfor...} said...

Fabi said...

We have no photostrip automats :(! so no photostrip from me =(!

My first kiss was with Paul. I was 10. We were in the pool in our garden (a childrens pool) and he came close to me and kissed me for a second. So sweet =)!

April said...

I was 16. His name was Blake. It was after our first date, in his truck.
He eventually stood me up for prom a few weeks later. BUT KARMA IS AWESOME, because 9 months after he stood me up, he had a baby. So HAH.

Yeah, I'm not bitter about getting stood up for prom. Not at all.. (Going stag was just fine though, I did it the next year, too. I like being able to do and be with who I want.)

I didn't kiss anyone else for the next two and a half years, either. Fun fact about April.

Geisslein said...

oh what a great idea! you are great. unfortunatelly I have no photostrip, but if I had one, I would send it to you! have a lovely and creative day today! greetings from germany, geisslein

Farah said...

First kiss would be when I was 20, dating boypren for a few weeks already when it happened. Haha God, it was so awkward! I didn't know what to do with myself at all! We still laugh over it ;)

p/s: I hope you get this as the internet has been acting super retarded! Love you! xoxo

Ria said...

I was 13, it was during a disco held at the hall opposite the lower site of my school. His name was Lesek, but he said to call him Lee, he went to the same school as my first love, but that would come later. It was a typical, clumsy, too long, too wet, too much tongue teenage kiss. I remember wondering what all the fuss was about.

It's funny because me and W were talking about firsts the other day, I love remembering the awkwardness, it makes me feel accomplished now ;) <3

Stephanie said...

This is kind of double sad.

1.) I was SIXTEEN when I had my first REAL kiss....
2.) It was with Gage's dad.

haha. He lived with a couple of our friends, we were upstairs in his room, summertime, dark with the window unit blasting, listening to Lynyrd Skynyrd and talking....
Dang, that was a long time ago!

Raquel said...

13. In front of a school bus with my first "real" boyfriend (George). & by "real", I mean we dated for 2 whole months. :)

kid. said...

i was 18.
his name was mykul, and we were in his driveway.
i was really disappointed because i was reaaaalllly expecting it (he put on chapstick and popped a piece of gum in his mouth before he walked me out to my car.)


Claudia said...

I was actually 22 his name was Oscar and besides my husband he is the only person I've ever kissed...

Cynthia said...

my first kiss was at 14 his name was william and he was my first real boyfriend. we were around the corner from my house because I didn't want to get caught kissing haha! can you beleive he and i are still friends to this day

gosh I really wish I could participate in next weeks photo's but I don't have any photostrips darn! can't wait to see what everyone else submits though!

hope you had a lovley day, hugs :)

Leesh said...

I was in grade 6 so I was probably 11. My first real kiss was after school by the playground. Patrick. Oddly enough, a picture was taken of us kissing. 22 years later, at a grade 8 reunion, a old friend gave me the picture. I showed my husband and he is disgusted by it. I actually saw Patrick at the reunion last year, we laughed about the picture and how he was my first kiss.

Sara said...


I was 19!!! and we were outside that cafe, it was dark and he's so much taller, I think it was a little awkward. His name literally translates to sword :D

Did I mention he is a year younger?

Lindsey said...

Such a cute and clever post! I am loving that first photo!!

sanchez said...

My first kiss was actually a few months ago. Outside the back of my house, His name was Andrew and he was lovely and pretty.

hahaha. I'm so lame. :)

Bitsy said...

Martyn, at some house party when I was 15. He was going out with my friend and she told him to. Why thanks. Hahah.

Lauryn said...

My first kiss was in junior high at a musical cast party. We were all playing truth or dare and the boy I had a crush on, Brent, was dared to give me a smooch. Not the best story, eh? :)

Karleen said...

I was 16, his name was Nick, and we were at his house watching a hockey game. Immediately after it happened I ran out of his and drove home!

Maddy said...

I was 12. His name was Justin and it was during the movie Undercover Brother.

We knocked teeth.


Gracie said...

Aww these are sweet. I will definitely have to join :)

Ah first kiss was when I was 16 (a late bloomer lol). It was at a school dance and his name is Patrick.

He in fact became my first real bf a few years later. Strange I know :)

Holly Claire said...

So. It's been a while since I've commented. But I have been keeping up!

Mine was just last fall, actually. Almost a year ago. It's kind of hard to believe it's been that long.

I was 14, and we were actually at his church of all places! He was showing me around, and we found this quiet place outside where we sat for a few minutes. And the it happened! I was so surprised I think I actually laughed! It was sweet though!

Fritzi Marie said...

I was 13. His name was Chris Kingston. We were playing truth or dare at a pool party. I told him I wouldn't kiss him but it happened anyway. When I was 25, I fell in love with him and we shared many amazing kisses. He broke my heart but I don't regret taking him up on that dare.

p.s. I love that you are doing this photostrip thingy. My husband (not Chris Kingston) and I jump in photobooths whenever we run into them.

love love,
Fritzi Marie

p.s. I still have some happy mail to send your way. I moved across country and the move put a kink in my to do list.

Well Nice Chels said...

I was 13 and we were outside of the a festival in our city called Sugar Fest standing against a chain link fence waiting for our parents to pick us up :) Jacob, he was my first real boyfriend too!

He's married now. Crazy. haha

Laura Loo said...

AHH how cute! I love love old photos, and the one of all the couples kissing is super cute! Also, the engagement photo strip is just precious; what a clever idea!
I was 12...I was in 7th grade, and my 1st real boyfriend was in 8th, and everyone was so jealous!! Haha. We were seeing the movie "Keeping the Faith" (why? haha) and I was soo nervous. It was slobbery, and he kinda sucked, looking back, but at the time I was gaa-gaa!
