Miss "Goody Two Shoes" gets a man

Boys don't want to date Miss Goody Two Shoes!

All through high school I was painfully shy. I just did not fit in with the rest of my classmates. Most had stay at home moms. Mine worked in a factory. They discussed their favorite television shows, we had no television. They listened to the latest songs and knew the newest dance moves. I was not allowed to dance,  and the mere mention of going out to the movies would really set our father off. He claimed dances and movies were places girls got pregnant and that was not going to happen to his daughters! I was not asked out by any of the boys at school. I heard them refer to me as "Miss Goody Two-Shoes" . It hurt. At times I would think that I would never meet a boy and fall in love. I would never get married and have children. In those days unmarried women were pitied. A girl was made to believe that she was not complete without a male companion.

 I exchanged my shoes for skates and met a man!

But fortunately for me I met a young man while out skating with my Sunday school class. After we saw each other a few times we got up the nerve and exchanged numbers. I was scared to get happy. I was scared to hope. He would meet me every time our Sunday school went skating. But each time I was sure it would be the last.

He had sandy brown hair and the most beautiful soft blue eyes. His hair would fall into his eyes when he laughed and he would toss it back with his hand only to have it fall again. His gaze would make my heart beat faster. I was a gawky tall, but he was taller. I could hardly balance myself and was so nervous. I would joke about needing a pillow to tie to my bottom because I ended up on the floor so much. He just laughed, then he would reach out to steady me... He worked in the factory near there but I was just a senior in high school, so I felt young and inexperienced, and I was...Each time I left the skating arena happier than I ever thought I could be but at the same time I was plagued with the thought that I would never see him again. What if he found someone (anyone) better? What if Father found out and forbid it?

High school is never easy but with a really strict father it must have been very painful.

Your sandy haired young man sounds very nice. Maybe there will be more of this tale?

That was quite a story. That just proves that you can find love even when you are not looking for it.

I like those first loves, it is so innocent and so tough to handle for a kid, but it is all worth it!
