The Girlfriend Before I Lost My Virginity
Jimmy Hap

Yesterday I saw an old girlfriend, but it wasn't just any old girlfriend. This is the girl that represents everything that was once innocent with me. She wasn't the girl I lost my virginity to. This is the last girlfriend I had before I lost my virginity. This is the last girlfriend I had before I got corrupted, the one before I became jaded. Since her it has all been heartbreaks, sex, games, lies, and women with children, and baggage, and pasts. We had that innocent relationship where the night ended with a kiss, and that kiss meant so much that it seemed to last all night, and it was fresh in my mind for the entire week played over and over again in my head. She was before all the drinking, all the bars, she came before money was important to me, I was with her back in the days before I wore a watch, before I carried an umbrella, before I knew what the date was without looking at a calendar, before I knew what being stressed out meant. Before I had a past, before I planned for the future. Iv really never missed her until I saw her, I ran into her and for a second I almost just waved and kept going like I have done to so many people, but something made me stop and say how are you, and I really meant it this time. It wasn't an elevator type how are you, it was a "I want to know how you are" And she was great she seemed exactly the same, It was amazing we walked and talked for about 3 or 4 minutes, but In cant stop thinking about it, I can't stop thinking about her, about me then, and me now. I realize it isn't her that I actually miss. I miss me I miss that young innocent guy. Iv missed him before but until now I wasn't sure what I missed. I thought I missed my carefree days, I thought I missed all the high school girls around me, I thought I missed my full head of hair, I thought I missed my ripped jeans and sweatshirt. But it wasn't any of that at all, it was my innocence that I missed. But for about 3 minutes I was back, I was innocent, I cared, I wanted to know about this girl, I was sincere, it felt great, I felt inspired. And the best part is it hasn't faded I feel great. I know now that I don't want to wear my ripped jeans, I still want to carry my umbrella I, I like knowing the date, and I don't need a crowd of girls around me. I have just reached out into the past with both hand and grabbed a huge piece of innocence that I will never let go of again.

"Your essay was well written and expressed a lot of feelings. I think that your essay can relate with a lot of people. You have a few errors in your typing but other than that your sentence structue was great. Your essay flowed very easily and was well organized." -- Stacey Helregel, Normal, Illinois, USA.
"I think this was a good essay. The author was very descritive in telling his story. You could tell that he had a very sincere voice. His words came out at me from the paper. I think that he should proof read the paper before he submitted it, because there were a lot of grammar mistakes made. Overall it was a very put together essay. I could really relate to the essay! Tucora, ISU " -- Tucora Henry, Phoenix, Illinois, United States.
"I thought, your general idea was great, it was different. However I'd like to see more description, in the form of solid details. right now I you have these lists that go on, and on, it's like a poem rather than an essay. Thanks for sharing" -- Romel D. Jamison, Normal , Illinois, USA.
"I enjoyed reading this essay quite a bit. I liked how the author described his innocence from the past. I especially liked how he reached into the past and grabbed a part of his innocence and brought it back to the present." -- LeAnn Rocha, Normal , Illinois, USA.
"Very nice essay. I really enjoyed to read it and I think that it happens with all the boys of the world." -- Pedro Marinho Coutinho, Normal, Illinois, USA.
"I thought the eassay was pretty good. Your ideas and thoughts really hit home. Your typing needs a few corrections, but it was easy to follow and well constructed. " -- Ty Winkelhake.
"your essay was very well written. I think all of us have that side but most of us dont know we have it or dont want to show it" -- Nick Barclay, Normal, Illinois, USA.
"I really enjoyed what you had written about meeting up with this previous girlfriend. I think that the way you described how you reminisiced about what used to be, really gave me a sense of what really went on before you claim you were "corrupted." I think that you had a lot to say about the way you felt then and the way you feel now. " -- Andrea White, Normal, IL, United States.
"I really enjoyed your essay. As I read along I found myself going back and remembering what it was like to feel innocent and not have to worry. I almost felt as if the essay ended too quickly. I would have liked to know more about the girl and your feelings with her. Not just that you felt innocent. How do you feel now that you brought back some of the innocence with you? Do you find your relationship(s) any different? Just a thought, great essay!" -- Joril, Normal, IL, usa.
"It makes you feel how an apparently insignificant memory, can turn in to a show of emotions..very interesting, very real." -- Adriana Quevedo, Rio de Janeiro, RJ, Brazil.
"Your essay is very good because it recognized a certain life pattern that we all have but have not realized. We all have that brush with innocence once in our lives, and as quickly as it comes, it goes away. The only thing it needs as more quantity. It sounds like a very good introduction to something that could be really good." -- Abigail Copuyoc, Pembroke Pines, Florida, United States.
"Uplifting stuff. " -- ___.
"I really enjoyed your essay. It was something that I could personally relate to. I enjoyed the description and details that you used. There were a few grammatical errors but it was a great essay." -- Tom Lassandrello, Normal, IL.
"I really enjoyed your essay. It was something that I could personally relate to. I enjoyed the description and details that you used. There were a few grammatical errors but it was a great essay." -- Tom Lassandrello, Normal, IL, U.S..
"The story was pretty good, I would have liked to hear more about this girl though...what she's like now, why they broke up way back then. I think allot of people can defiantely relate to the story, it attracts a big audience. It was a good story, but maybe some more substance could be added." -- Jenny, Normal, IL, USA.
"Very interesting, made me think of innocents lost, and how I lost it. " -- Janae D. Anthony.
"I thought that what you wrote was from the heart. I dont know what made you write about that but it was very interesting. I cant say that i have went throught the same thing yet but i can see that you liked yourself alot more before you corrupted yourself. I would have liked to know more about how this girl acted toward you when she saw you. I would have been better with a little background. Overall very interesting," -- Kevin Bollman, Normal, IL, USA.
"All I can say was the story was true. You were able to find out what was missing in your life and figured out what happens to us guys. It made me think back to the time of innocence that I once had. " -- Gavin Pearson, Elmwood, Illinois, USA.
"I thought your essay was good. But maybe next time you should check your grammer mistakes so people can read it easier and understand what you are writing a little better. You were very descriptive and sincere in you writing and it flowed well. I think your essay can relate to a lot of people." -- Paige Siemion.
"Man... as a guy soon to lose his virginity, this essay has taught me to appreciate exactly how great I've had it so far. That won't stop me from doing what I want though!" -- Looney Bin.
