First Love Strikes Again on This Week's Scene Cover

Posted By on Thu, Feb 9, 2012 at 8:00 AM

The Love Issue, the Scene's annual paean to matters of the heart, hits newspaper racks today, and the 2012 edition finds us training our sights on that most momentous, disastrous and inevitable of human calamities: first love.

Jonathan Meador recounts the tale of his fateful first kiss, and the watery death (his) that nearly resulted. Danny Bonvissuto gives credit where credit is due: to all the ones who came before The One. Kim Green examines first love in the digital age, or how a little vigilance — and a little service called InvestiDate — goes a long way. D. Patrick Rodgers retells how Olympic Fever made him flip out over a tiny dancer on his TV way back in 1996. Kay West wades through the sorrow of watching her daughter get her heart broken for the first time, just like she told her she would (in the Scene, no less). And David Paine thinks he might be ready for this crazy first love business after all — or more specifically, after coming out at age 55.

Check out the whole thing here. How about a little music to set the mood? Hit it, Linda ...
