This site is no longer being updated. Am I Missing Out? I wish I had the same certainty. We started dating our freshman year of high school. He was my first kiss he still had braces, I had just gotten mine removed. When we first reunited after college, I thought, How extraordinary. How special that we found our way back to each other. That we weathered the rollercoaster of teenage hormones and landed on the other side, changed, but still intact. A few years later, I thought, How terrifying.
