I usually see articles and writings about the first love. The writers say most people don’t forget their first love and feel touched as they think of their first boyfriend or girlfriend. When I remember my first girlfriend, my heart always beats fast. When I was 14, I was in Pohang Middle School and my first girlfriend was in Pohang Girls’ Middle School, so we didn’t know each other at all. Moreover, she had been in Seoul and she transferred to a school in Pohang. Most men of Pohang like girls from Seoul so much. This girl was famous for her beauty in my school. She was called “Seoul Girl” in my class. We first met in the same class of a math academy. I was enamored about her face, her personality, her way of speaking, especially her very clean and white skin. A few days later, I received her phone number. I proposed to her by phone and she accepted. We were a very energetic boy and girl but when we dated, we were very shy. We held hands but didn’t talk. However, I was so happy and very fluttered with her voice.
In the winter, our school finished class early because of a very heavy snow, so we were going to meet at the beach in front of her school. In the snow, our shoes and clothes were wet, but we enjoyed staring at each other. I took her to her apartment.
A few days later, she suddenly stopped the academy. At night I called her and asked why she quit. She told me she was going back to Seoul and she couldn’t meet me because she felt so bad for me. As soon as I heard that, I started to cry. Then, I felt resentment and cried in the bathroom alone.
Nowadays, she is in Hanseo University and she will be a flight attendant. Her face hasn’t changed since before. Now, I think that then our love was very clean like snow. Like snow, I remember my first love story.
At university, I met my girlfriend who is the same major as me. She’s in Seoul, too. And she is the most beautiful girl to me. Tomorrow, we will have been together a month. I hope my girlfriend doesn’t read this diary. I hope if she reads this, she will understand.
