It's not schmaltzy and Nicholas Sparks-y, so that's good. It's a "real" piece of writing, because I can remember going through something like this myself (not my FIRST kiss, but I did kiss boys I wasn't crazy about.)
My only criticism is that it's a little too wordy. I think it would be better to trim the fat and get to the action quicker. Also, the first couple of lines don't make much sense. :P
