Because it's Valentine's day, this week's edition of Friday Confessions will be a brief history of my love life. Sorry, not sorry.
Confession #1: The earliest crush I can remember was a young Leonardo Dicaprio, who then played troubled homeless teen Luke Brower on Growing Pains. His hair was so perfectly slicked back (still is) and I just couldn't help myself. After finding his "address" in a Teen Beat magazine I wrote him a letter that opened with something along the lines of, "Dear Leo, even though I'm only six years old, I really REALLY like you..." Leo, if you're reading this (which you probably are), I'm still waiting for you to write back.
Confession #2: My first kiss was in second grade. His name was Richard, and you guys, he was weird. Immediately after he kissed me, I punched him in the face and ran down the hallway screaming, "Eeeeeeewwwwww, Richard kissed me!!!!!" I've always been quite the romantic. And tactful too.
Confession #3: I have a growing collection of T-shirts I've stolen from ex-boyfriends. The shirt I'm wearing in these pictures is one of them. Whoopsies.
Confession #4: I once backed out of a date after he told me his favorite band was Hoobastank.
Confession #5: Last Valentine's Day was spent huddled in a dimly lit room playing video games with two of my very platonic male best friends, while all of our other friends were cuddling on the couches with their SOs. And honestly, it was one of my favorite Valentine's Day memories ever.
I hope everyone has a fantastic Valentine's Day. If you gotta boo thang, be sure to give em lots of kisses today. If you're single, remember that you're awesome and don't hesitate to declare this day Treat Yo'self 2014. No one's stopping you.
