Do you like me? Circle yes or no.

Ah young love. Do you remember your first love? Do you remember your first love note? If your first love note was around elementary or within middle school you probably received a straight up “I love you” note or a “Do you like me? Circle yes or no.” It’s interesting how even at a very young age we seek acceptance for what we believe is love. I suppose it is called puppy love, the beginning of the butterflies, and the time when you are in “like” with someone because you are too young to know the difference.

I speak of this because I am currently fascinated with what my seven year son Logan is experiencing in 1st grade. A few weeks ago my wife and I walked to pick him up from school. On our way back two girls rolled up next to Logan on their scooters. The younger of the two, who will be named Jean Grey, said hello to Logan and they took part in a small conversation. Jean’s older sister went ahead and called for Jean and she left but made sure to say good-bye to Logan. As she went ahead I noticed her looking back and smiling at him. I told my wife and we both watched as she continued to look back. It seemed as though she had a crush but how could this six year old girl have a crush? How would she know what this is?

A week later I received a text message from my wife with a picture of a love note that was given to Logan by Jean. It said, “I love you” and “True Love”. I naturally thought, “That’s my boy” but I also thought about how amazing this interaction was. What exactly does this feel like to her or Logan? Is it butterflies or do they just think each other is cool? Whatever it is, I think it’s interesting and refreshing. We have all been there with our first love note and first love. Hopefully this story takes you down your own memories of, “Do you like me? Circle yes or no.”

    LOL yo! That’s so cute. As you say it is also intriguing. Seriously, makes you marvel at how our minds work (even at such a young age).

  2. I have a five year old little brother, and this kind of young love is adorable 🙂 It’s pure, innocent friendship without all the complications that come later – wish this kind of thing could last!

      I know! Poor guy, I felt for him. She did little things like that throughout the school year for him. Every student has a sleeve attached to the back of their chair for homework and such and while he was up she put a note in the sleeve and told him to check it because something was there. It’s was pretty cool and he was stoked.
