Letter to My First Love

In anticipation of its upcoming production of Onegin, the San Francisco Ballet has just created the Tumblr Letter to My First Love, featuring anonymous missives written to first crushes (along the lines of the lovelorn Tatiana’s letter to Onegin). The messages can be funny or earnest, addressed to a high school sweetheart or a personal passion—like ballet—or a celebrity. I like the short/sweet/funny ones, but some of the longer ones with a twist make bittersweet reads. (Want to participate? Submit your entry here.)



As for me, I would dedicate mine to my local TV weatherman, to whom I was entirely devoted at the age of 4.

If you were to write a letter to your first love, what would you say?

Update: They ran my submission. :)
