No I still didn't have a boyfriend yet, I am still 15 and trying though, telephone dating is a modern concept so people thing but actually I was doing it when I was 15 years old back in 1970. excerpt: I spoke to many guys over the line from the ages of 14 to 18. I was particularly crazy over this boy - Larry Hitchcock. He was 16 while I was 15. He lived over in the next neighbourhood from me and he and I would talk for hours and hours on the phone every night. It was wonderful. It was the first time in my life that I ever had a guy spend that much time with me. I was enjoying every minute of it and of course I wanted to meet him. Discussion questions: what techniques did you try to hook a boyfriend or girlfriend, or perhaps your spouse today? Have you ever dated through the telepersonal ads, on the telephone or have you tried internet dating - many of you know I found my boyfriend matt from internet dating, what is your story, past or present.

I did at one time talk to aboy on the party line as we had them back then somehow dont know how we got connected and h lived around the corner. We never went out or anything. Something he said cant remeber what put up a red flag for me and I wouldnt talk to him any more. But looked like it was alot of waste of your time with all the things you did looking for boys ya didnt get much out of being a teen did you. ?

this was exactly what being a teen was all about and it excited us to use that party line, all the teens were on it.

Well I only met that one boy on it and got out of that as fast as I could. I was in a group that met all the time on a street corner my cousin and I were in it we all enjoyed each others company but we never got into trouble then one of them had a car and we would drag the strip or main Blvd.
