When I was a teenager, I believed in love at first sight. It sounded romantic just like the
At that time, when I was amazed by the good-looking boy, I thought he was the one. He was handsome. His eyebrows were thick and he was pug-nosed. He had thin lips which always smiled at me. We were in the same senior high school. I was a new student in the first grade, while he was in the second grade. He looked at me with his glittering eyes, I smiled at him then he approached me, walking down slowly towards me with pronounced steps. He took my hand and shook it tightly. When he mentioned his name, I looked into his eyes where I could feel the warmth on them. We talked about the school, the teachers and other things. Soon after the first meeting he came to my house on the next Saturday night in order to know me better. Before he went back home, he took my hands and gazed at me, “Would you be my girl? “, whispered he. I was so happy, I felt like Princess Cinderella, or Aurora or Rapunzel who had found her soul mate prince charming. So far was so good. I thought I had found my love.
The following meeting was not as good as I expected. Our conversation was boring, he was just sitting there in front of me, kept silent, didn’t know what to say, so the situation was a far cry from being romantic as the love scene I saw on the movie. He often gaped when I talked about the latest news, or the music genre that was popular at that time, or any other things. From the gaze of his eyes, I knew that he didn’t understand at all, he didn’t get the point of my words. The day after that he came to me and asked to teach him mathematics and English. He had homework but he couldn’t do it. I wondered why he couldn’t answer such simple questions , which were too easy to solve even for the first grade student like me. On the next two hours I tried hard to explain how to solve the problems until finally I was blue in the face. It was futile, he couldn’t understand at all. I began to ask myself, “Is this love?” Why are my feelings for him gradually turned off? Is he the one I should share my life with forever? Can I live happily ever after with this stupid, handsome guy?” Not too long after that day I broke up with him.
