via You Miss This From Your Teen Dating Days … — Magic 95.9
I have to admit, Ladawn Black’s Post about Teen Dating made me reminisce about my past teen dating days (which weren’t that long ago) by the way. I instantly started to compare how innocent dating was back then, to how ridiculously superficial and confusing it is now.
- Social Media pressure
- Reality TV pressure
- Entertainment (rappers and vocalist) pressure
- Subliminally sexual images and messages everywhere
- The pressure our young teenage girls have to look a certain way
And the list goes on.
So What Did I Miss Most About Teen Dating?
What do I miss most about my teen dating days? Did we even date? Or did we just venture out into a concrete habitat and pursue convivial activities completely bereft of thoughts of our affinity for one another?
However, once the seed was planted (like the serpent telling Adam and Eve they were exposed) we started to feel the pressures of teen dating (“oooohhh ya’ll go together!!!”). It took away from the sweet and blissful innocence you felt when you would stroll around town together, venturing to the corner store. Me combining pennies and nickels to purchase a pack of Lemonheads I would gladly share with her.
Innocent laughter about random yet imaginative thoughts of days past and fictitious accounts of days to come. It was all there. I miss that. After hours of conversation, with some hesitation, finally conceding to the overwhelming narcolepsy weighing my eyelids south and shading my brown iris like a lunar eclipse. We agree to end this night, but neither of us wants that to be, so we, decide to play a game of, “count to three.”
“No you hang up,”
“No, you hang up,”
“On 3 hang up.”
I miss shared yet recalcitrant thoughts on paper of potentialities and possibilities of a future with her. Sweet looks from afar that garner a smile with a quick turn of her head, hiding as is if she was in a haze. Nervous tension and apprehension, hoping you didn’t notice her gaze. Indeed, I miss those ways… I reminisce over those days.
Do you like me?
Check, yes or no
Intertwined hands, smiles you could see from a distant land, you damn right I’m your man. I want the [entire] school to understand…(and see) you’re with me.
This wasn’t fantasy, it was my reality… today it’s fallacy. Destroying the possibilities, of what-could-be, so organically, flowing end-lessly.
So I repeat… “Do I Miss Teen Dating? Damn Right I do!”
That’s when it felt free.
