8 Life Lessons Your First Serious Relationship Will Teach You ...


You’ve probably heard people talking about their first love.

It leaves a real mark on your life!

Your first real relationship is jam packed with lessons and learnings and magical moments, and if it doesn’t last, it’s where you’ll pick up a lot of the knowledge that you take forward into other relationships.

Want to check if you’ve missed any?

Here are the things that you’ll learn from your first serious relationship.

1. Privacy Isn’t Bad

When you’re first in a relationship, you want to tell everyone.

It’s not unusual for you to become a bit like a groupie – you’ll prioritise things so that you can spend more time with your partner, your social media will become a shrine to them, and you’ll talk about them to anyone that will listen.

But when it ends, you can often regret letting so many people in.

Sometimes it’s nicer to have things just between the two of you – even when it’s not about breaking up, just about having some sweet moments together.

Privacy isn’t negative.

It’s Really Easy to Be That Person


Me and my first real love have recently broken up (on his terms). He still wants to keep in contact, and anytime I want to call him I can. He was such a nice and honest person, and probably the first guy that has treated me with respect with the time that we spent together. It's been 5 days now since we've not been together (as we were planning this weekend together) and its really really hard. With the first two days just crying, I still find moments I don't know what to do with myself (apart from more crying), as we spent the weekends and tuesday evenings making dinner, cuddling watching Fringe, doing day trips to places. I'll be going back to work soon and just checking my shifts for the next two weeks are also making me upset because I know that all I'll be doing is working, coming back to mine, sleeping and repeating, instead of going somewhere different and relaxing and feeling loved in the arms of my first.
