I still remember the first love letter I received from a boy when I was fifteen. It was during the afternoon and I heard an old friend called me out of my classroom and when I went out he said to me, ”here is a letter from my brother. It is for you and he likes you.”
I looked at him for a while, and looked at the letter in his hand, and said, “o, I don’t know him, so I won’t read his letter.“ And I immediately turned around but he pulled me and said, “you must read it! He is my brother, and my best friend, please?” And then he put the letter in my hand and walked away from me.
So I opened the letter and it read, ”Email, I have watched you for a long time. I want to be your boyfriend, please. Can you give me a chance? I will take care of you. Believe me. Yours XX”
Oh, what a stupid guy he is! I was annoyed when I read his letter, especially the part that said he ” wanted to take care of me.” But there are still some girls who want to get a kind of protection from boys. I think that’s the reason why this sentence is so popular. However I think it comes off as if couldn’t take care of myself! So after reading it I tore it up and went back to studying my lessons.
During the next class break, a strange boy stood at the door of my classroom. And he called my name. But I really didn’t want to talk to him. I didn’t go out.
After another break, I received another letter on my desk.
I open it. It read, “Email, I know the letter maybe troubled you, but I really like you. I hope to spend the boring time with you in this school…” I didn’t read the rest of the letter and I tore it up again.
After a while, my old friend came again and called me out.
I told that I had to go out but he said, “This is my brother, he want to make friends with you.“ And that boy just wants to say something!” I said “No, I don’t like your friend and I don’t like you now. You can go now, with your best friend, go! Get away from my classroom!“
And then I went back to my seat. Since that moment the boy didn’t trouble me anymore. I like to be alone. I know many students who have boyfriends or girlfriends from the same school. I think it really influence their study in a negative way. I will find a boyfriend in college, way in the future.
In China, often someone who likes you will write a letter to express their feelings. This is how it is usually done by students who like other students. There are also many other ways, such as making phone calls, asking a friend to tell him/her, and of course just saying it out really loudly also works (maybe this last method is a little crazy way).
I don’t know whether other teenagers feel the say way as me. The way I see it is that we all don’t know what love is but the ones who are talking about love are just talking. They have boy/girlfriends out of curiosity. They get together and they don’t talk about what it means to be in “love,” and they don’t even talk about marriage, the future or even their families. I think they just want to have a very intimate friendship.
Tell me about your first love letter – that is if you can remember it!
