This is why I hate Facebook.
I ran across something on Facebook the other day that really chapped my hide. It's a couple. These are two people I never needed to see again. When I was 14 I was so in love with this girl. It was 1979. We were both in the 9th grade. But she fell in love with another guy. We'll call him X, for Xtremely Getting In My Way. X was in the 11th grade. X and Y (for Y didn't you pick me!) started dating at that tender, young age. She was freaking fourteen! She wasn't supposed to find her "forever love". But she did. And now it's like a hundred years later and they are still together.
There's a picture of them on Facebook and they're all so freakin' happy and sappy together, him with his graying hair and pictures of their grown kids and everything. Sheesh.
See, the problem is I never had my chance. This dude swooped in before I could get puberty under control and talk to her. She was my first love. But her first love was X. I guess he was her last love. What a freakin' waste of time to know all this crap, all thanks to Facebook.
