For the record I had no idea where to put this, I guess this is as good as any.
So...I'm sixteen, and I haven't been kissed. I know, I know, this sounds like it's going to be one of those "I'll never be attractive to anyone ever because I haven't been kissed yet!" type of rants, but I actually have a very good reason why my lip-virgin status must be changed, and I need practical advice to help carry it out.
Every year I'm in the musical production at my high school, and our directors have this ludicrous process of singling out somebody during one year to "build" next year's show around (i.e. give them the lead). Of course they don't actually tell you until after auditions the next year when they cast you, but they have their ways of letting you know and basically it becomes an open secret who they've picked. Well, I'm the 'chosen one' for next year. Since female leads in musicals are inevitably romantic ones, my fellow cast members have been giving me a resounding refrain of "you better get a move on" in the kissing department. Cause who wants their first to be on a stage while acting? So, even though I don't want to be, I am now on this PG-rated version of Rachel Berry's crusade before she played Maria in West Side Story (sorry for the Glee reference, but it was fitting). So, with a roughly eight-month deadline, I have three options as far as the other end of this kiss goes (We'll call them Guy A, Guy B, and Guy C).
Guy A: The male version of myself, the other 'chosen one' for nest years musical. This is the defeatist option, the guy who I'm going to end up kissing on stage anyway. I've known him since I was in elementary school and I've had to reject him something like five times in the past two years. I really don't want this option to be my only option.
Guy B: The ideal option. My first, shall we say, 'practical crush;' one I could actually see myself dating. I've known him since middle school, but we became good friends in high school. Last fall, in true 21st century feminist spirit, I asked him to our school's Christmas dance. He already had a date but he suggested that we go to prom instead, and I agreed. Well, at this Christmas dance a few months later, it happened that we both had ditched our dates and ended up spending the whole night together. After this I started to truly consider him as boyfriend material, and the response I got from our mutual friends was a resounding "It's a lost cause, he just isn't looking for a relationship right now." So when I realized the first kiss deadline thing, I figured Guy B at prom would be the perfect option. He'd undoubtedly be obliging, and since he isn't looking for a relationship, there's practically no chance that he'll be taken by the time we go to prom, right? Wrong. As I write this, he's on a date with Miss 'Soul Mate' (that is the most stupid phrase for a teenage boy to use! but that's another rant for another time). So it looks like they'll be an item before long and we will have a very awkward prom night.
Guy C: This is a pretty good option too. I've known Guy C since I've been in high school, and he's one of those people that if he's your friend, he'll bend over backwards for you. So I have a feeling that he would do me the favor if I asked him (plus, he is good looking). The blatant, glaring obstacle is that I've never actually been alone with him, and I can foresee no circumstance in which we could be alone together and this could theoretically happen.
So, I'm looking for some practical advice (practical in the strict sense of the word, meaning, 'able to be put into practice'). So tell me whether you would go with A, B, or C, and suggestions as to how in the world you would go about doing it or just advice in general that would be great. Thanks
