Most romances and relationships don't last forever, due to a variety of circumstances. I have some fantastic, bittersweet memories. The saying goodbye part is awkward and hard, and there was always a little heartache involved; but now, looking back years later, I wouldn't have traded those memories for anything. I ran into one of my summer flings from 20 years ago a few weeks ago, and we shared a few laughs along with a friendly hig and kiss on the cheek. I am so glad now that I took the chance!
I met this girl years ago at a summer camp. The first year I didn't crush on her, but the second and the third I did. She's still the most amazing girl I've ever met. I've never loved any girl, but I was close to loving her. I sure would never trade a second of those memories, even the fights. We never actually had anything going, we liked each other, but it was more of a "I want to, but I know we shouldn't" kind of thing. But my only regret was never kissing her :( If I would go back I'd kiss her and never let go...
I'm a college freshman. This past summer (summer of senior year) I fell for a boy who was younger than me in my high school. This summer was so worth it, and it ended up lasting though we both thought it wouldn't. I ended up at a school only 30 minutes away for college, and I've seen him every weekend. So, summer romances are with it as you never know how it will go for sure.
I'd never trade those memories for anything, it was sweet and amazing but no doubt there's regrets to it, on my part. I wish I could turn back time and go back to this January, best time of my life ever.
