13 People Share The Cringe-Worthy Things From Their First Relationship

“The first time I kissed a guy I was 18 years old. Up until then my only exposure to kissing was from sex scenes in shows/movies. So when we started making out (in public…in the student union building at our university), I made moaning noises because I thought that’s what you were supposed to do! God, I hate myself. I can’t even look at him anymore.” – Pixiupixiu

 

“I asked out my crush over text and she said yes so I replied with ‘Congratulations! You just upgraded to boyfriend package!’ I still wake up in cold sweat in the middle of the night thinking about that.” – Lutzker

 


“We would put a blanket over us and fool around with other people in the room. The sounds they must have heard, my god.” -CrazyMuppetSex

 

 


“I wore a floor length leather jacket to our first date because ‘The Matrix’ was really cool at the time. I was 15 at the time. My mum bought it for me from a leather shop in Glasgow (which makes the story either better or worse, your choice). There was no second date.” – Songforsaturday88

 

“Homecoming dance. First kiss of the relationship. I wanted to try and do the thing from the movies where you passionately grab the other person on both sides of their face and pull them into a dramatic kiss. I ended up smushing his face to the point where he looked like he was sucking on a lemon and got pushed into a glass door. He was nice about it though. The second kiss was much calmer and sweeter.” – Pastrypeasant92

 


“Once a girl I had an off and on crush on since kindergarten wrote ‘I love you’ on my notebook when I was 14. I freaked out and told her best friend I had an arranged marriage overseas.” – Dilxoxoxlib

 


“If a text went unanswered for more than five to seven minutes, I would hit resend. Again and again. And this was like 2007 so phone plans were not what they are now and I was using my moms which had no texting included. Poor guy and poor parents phone bill.” – Angrytoadwoman

 


“We weren’t official yet so when he held my hand in public I told him we can only do it for five seconds at a time and I would literally count down, out loud, the seconds.We still joke about it and I still cringe.” – Foxesarepuppercats

 


“I think the one that takes the cake is the time we went to see a sh*tty rom com in theaters, but his mom insisted on not leaving us alone. She sat in the row behind us and would ‘tsk’ every time he would try to put his arm around me.” – UnsavoryLife

 

“I called my first BFs home every night, multiple times if he wasn’t home when I called earlier (these were days before cell phones were super common so it was a landline shared by the whole family which made it even more embarrassing because the whole freakin’ family knew I was calling). Once I finally got him on the phone I’d talk about anything and everything. He’d rarely say a word which made me talk more to fill the silence. I’m now convinced that he’d put the phone down and play video games while I talked into the air for an hour or two. Or three. Ughhhh.” – Mmmmmmburritos

 


“I had a crush on a girl and after years of innocent flirting I didn’t know how to take the next step so one day I texted her ‘I love them big ol boobies of yours’ and she never spoke to me again. I still cringe thinking about it. It was just so out of the blue. I was just so stuck in this innocent flirting mode and didn’t know how to take the next step so one day I just decided I would take a trust fall and I fell flat and hard lol.” – MiyamotoMusashi5

 


“She and I did that thing where if we texted each other and used a smiley face or put a period, we immediately assumed the other person was in a crappy mood. A fight would quickly ensue. Because of emojis and punctuation. I wish I could slap myself in the past.” – Rasouddress

 


“Early in my current relationship, neither myself nor my girlfriend wanted to be the first to say ‘I love you.’ To avoid saying it, I once said ‘I like you with all the likes in the world.’” – Nechro
