I like the way you think. People are so desensitized after a few relationships it becomes very easy to forget how intense physical showings of affection used to feel. Really, they should be taken with far more responsibility and consideration than they are.
This is pretty much what I was thinking - my first kiss was on my twenty-second birthday and I was wasted at the time. Yes, I can remember it, but it didn't really mean anything. The first time I cuddled a girl was around the same time (with a different girl), and she became my first girlfriend. Kissing and cuddling her wasn't the most amazing of experiences. It just... was what it was.
Then when I got with my second girlfriend, the cuddling was a lot better, the kissing was a lot better, and it felt generally very good.
And now, with the girl I'm seeing... it's just different. She's never been with a man before, and while she's surprized me with her confidence, her... innocence... has made me stop and appreciate the moment a little more. And it just feels right
. With her, the only reason why I don't regret it not being my own first flight is that I make it a policy in life to not have regrets, but find something to learn in everything that's happened to me and that I've done.
She and I have shown each other affection openly for quite some time now, and we're long-distance, so each time we see each other it continues to be special, intense, and - cliché as this sounds - magical.
