More than friends

Remember your earliest romantic relationships?

It's hard to forget the thrill of "going out" without, well, never actually going anywhere. Not to mention "breaking up" without a long, involved conversation.

What's your earliest memory of romantically pursuing someone of the opposite gender?

One study suggests friendships become romantic at an average age of 10. Does that surprise you?

I think it sounds right. My first serious "crush" happened in fourth grade, the same time I watched people pass notes devoted to the complexities of "going out." By fifth grade, I was witnessing full-fledged love triangles.

Do you have similar memories?
