What My First Kiss Taught Me About Love

I’m very happy to share my first article for Huffington Post was published today. It’s a rewritten version of an article I wrote for Thought Catalog, formerly titled “Kissing Girls And (Kinda) Liking It.” It’s one of my favorite articles because it reminds me of a happy time in my life, and I share the memory with a very good friend. My first kiss may not have been with a member of the sex I’m attracted to, but it taught me an awful lot about love and romance, and that’s what the story is about. I hope you enjoy reading it!

(And as an added bonus, here I am as one-half of the most impossibly sexy 13-year-old couple you’ve ever seen. I’m so, so lucky that we’re still best friends a decade later — we’re like family.)
