Hello, Internet. After telling the woefully embarrassing tale of my first kiss, I wanted to create a space where the equally mortified could unify and share their own stories. So, continuing on in our series The First Kiss Project I give you, the wonderful Sarah:
Set the scene: What year was it? How old were you? What era are we talking, were you in acid wash jeans or was it more, My So Called Life flannel?
The year was 2002 and I was 17. I was living in baggy sports hoodies and jeans. I was more excited about my new car and being able to drive than boys. Being in a girls' school, I was bored of the constant talk of boys so rebelled against it all and much preferred hanging out with friends
Who was the kiss with? How did you know you smooching partner?
Alex, we’d met through a friend. He was the typical good looking and charming boy with the fashionable curtains hairdo. He was used to get attention from all the girls so, when I wasn't swooping at his feet, I think he saw me as a challenge
How did it come to pass? (or something less Gandalf-y).
We were at the train station. He travelled from Kent to Essex for my birthday so I met him there and standing on the platform, like the teenagers that we were, he lent over and kissed me
What was it like?
It was very sloppy and definitely a case of too much PDA
What happened next? Are you still in contact?
We chatted over e-mail for some time but it fizzled out
How do you look back on it all these years later?
I shudder at the thought of the PDA but laugh back at it thinking we were teenagers!
When Sarah isn't charming the pants off handsome Zach Morris types in the Noughties, she's busy taking beautiful pictures. You can visit her website or catch up with her on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram. Basically, she's all over the internet catering to your photography needs and you should stalk her.

Until next time, you devastatingly attractive people, you.
