My First Crush: The Perfect Girl

I remember like it was yesterday when I had my first crush. I was in the 6th grade and her name was Toi Barnhardt. Wow! She was the perfect girl and I don’t mean sexy like I hear some of young guys talking. I mean cute, sweet, everything that a girl in the 6th grade should be. I thought she was the best thing since sliced bread and assume everybody around me was crazy for not liking her. It’s true! She was so clearly this perfect, amazing girl and I was honestly so confused with the fact that she wasn’t swarmed with pre-pubescent boys, that I tried to examine her critically, looking for flaws that I hadn’t seen before. Unsuccessful at this attempt to find something wrong her, I realized that people have different taste. In the 6th grade that was a profound message to me. She may have been the perfect girl to me, but that doesn’t mean that she was perfect for everyone else! Anyways….I was shy and I didn’t say anything to her, but I did give her some fries and a piece of my primetime pizza at lunch. That’s pretty much the sum of our relationship. I guess I didn’t have my swag yet lol. In some way it was pretty na├»ve for me to think that everyone would like this girl, but another way it was to me really romantic you know? I thought she was, objectively, the best girl ever!
