Yes you can. At the risk of sounding old age, I’m not sure at your age.
Let me explain.
My first love was a whirlwind, as they typically are. I went through a ridiculous amount of shit and by the time I met my now boyfriend I didn’t know which way was up. I convinced myself I felt nothing. When we went separate ways, I realised it wasn’t true.
My boyfriend sort of ticks the boxes, and that’s why I grew to love him. I dated someone before who ticked the boxes and it was awful. Most people’s first loves don’t last because they are unrealistic. And for that reason I think you need that first unrealistic love to really appreciate the next.
