Do You Think You Ever Truly Get Over Your First Love?

In my personal opinion, I don’t believe you do. I think that person will always hold a special place in your heart, regardless. You don’t have to still have feelings for them, or want them anymore, but I think how that very first person made you feel will always stick around. From there on, I believe you love differently, but you’ll still never forget them. I’m very much in love with a guy right now, but that doesn’t stop me from time to time thinking about my first love, and fondly looking back and also realizing how it’s carved the love I give and receive now.

  • Things change as you get older, and past experiences are seen from new perspectives.

    Speaking from personal experience, I will always remember and cherish my first relationship. To be honest, it still kind of breaks my heart that her mom suddenly moved her 2000 miles away. That really devastated me a young guy, and no matter how many failed relationships came after that, I always hold that in my heart as the gold standard of what love should be.

    Depends on how strong the love was I guess. It's been nearly 13 years since my first love left my life, and a part of me still hasn't gotten over it.

  • Tbh yeah but thats only when you truly meet the one, because once uou do no other past relationship will matter to you it almost feels like practice for the one your with today, you learnt your lessons on what to and what not to do so now you can make them the happiest you can

  • I don't think so... I was hardcore in love with this girl I knew back in middle school. She thought I was creepy, and frankly, she turned out to be a total bitch, but I still think of her as the one that got away. I believe we could have made a fantastic couple to this day.

  • Yup. In my opinion that is not possible. Whenever you meet yourr first love somehow your flashback memories come into ur mind. Personally I had that experience and I think it is for me not possible. You will still love your first love no matter what happens.

  • Yes I did. And at that time I was fully in love with her, like crazy.

    At some point you simply realise it's pointless suffering for that.

  • In my case, I mean it damaged me I guess. I don’t look back fondly at all. Wish I’d never dated her.
