Portraits Of Boston: An Amazing Realization

“In 2007, my middle school class went on a field trip to Washington, DC. In one of the museums there was a cute blonde girl from a different school. She was too nervous, so she asked her friend to walk over to me to tell me she thought I was attractive. It was the first time anyone ever told me I was attractive. We didn’t see each other again for a while.

Years later, when we started dating—and after a bunch of story exchanging—we confirmed that she was the blonde girl from the museum. It was an amazing realization.”
