There are certain things you should always remember about your first love, because how you felt about them will always be different to how you feel about the others to come. What do you remember about your first love?
He made you feel alive and wonderful, like you had a purpose in life and that was to be with him and fight for what had together because it was worth it at the end of day. He made you feel like you two shared something together which no one could ever attempt to understand or be a part of. He made you feel like it wouldn't be wrong to picture a future with him...five years from now or even ten years from now. You felt that you had found someone who could potentially be in your life for a long time yet to come.
He looked at you like he really noticed you and everything about you. He looked at you like he could see right into your soul and it was almost as though he knew what you were thinking at any given time. He looked at you like you were special and unique, like you were the only person in the room and you were the only one he would ever have eyes for. He looked at you like you were the most beautiful thing he had ever seen.
He spoke to you in a different way to everyone else, almost like he saw you in a completely new way to anyone who had ever looked at you. He told you private, secret things which you knew he wouldn't share with just anyone. He chose to share them with you because he trusted you, felt it was safe and knew that you would keep them. He spoke to you about important matters in his life, his past and his future. He was honest and truthful in every sense, always wanting you to know exactly how he felt about anything and everything. He understood the importance of clear communication and was able to have those tough discussions which arise in every relationship.
In a metaphorical sense, he touched your heart as you did with his, so much so that it will withstand any amount of time and distance. He touched you so deeply that he will always be the one that you remember and can't forget about, no matter how much you try to block him out. He will always have a presence in your life, such as being in the back of your mind, much like a song you can't get out of your head. He set the bar high for those to come and he's the person who you will automatically and subconsciously compare other boyfriends and relationships with.
You saw him as "The Special One" who you could completely trust and fall back on, even when there was no one else. You could always rely on him when push came to shove. His presence in your life made you realise all those amazing qualities about yourself that you may not have known existed until now. You realised how much you can offer someone who you care so deeply about.
You felt and believed he was worthy of your heart, love, loyalty, affection, support, positive energy and so much more. You felt there was something important to fight for, because love gave you that strong and infinite feeling of hope, faith and positivity. You felt he was worth keeping throughout the good times and the bad, someone to have a significant presence in your life. Your feelings for him were very real, regardless of how little or much time you had spent together.
You wanted more time together, more time to have him in your life and keep him close by when you needed him. You wanted to be together so long to prove that your relationship could withstand each and every battle, maybe even the test of time. You were ready to fight every obstacle that stood in your path. You wanted to have a successful relationship that would keep progressing naturally and excel great lengths and heights, never to dwindle, fail and end.
This is especially true if he was your first kiss. You remember the way he kissed you with passion, no matter who was around, the way he wrapped his arms around you so affectionately, the way you held hands and entwined them together so that you become attached and inseparable. You remember how warm and safe he felt when he was close.
Whether it was your first kiss, first time having sex, or even just the memories that come with a first love, as you read this list one person comes to mind and brings a smile to your face. It's healthy and perfectly normal. It's important to have those memories and carry them with you. Those memories and that experience shaped you into who you are today which is awesome.
It's amazing to experience your first love. It's such an intoxicating high that's hard to resist and even harder to forget when you do experience it. You'll never find that naïveté again because your first love is all your childhood fantasies come true. But then you have it and you grow up and realize maybe it wasn't the healthiest relationship. If only we could always have that fun and excitement of a first love. It's a never again replicated feeling.
What do you remember about your first love? Do you still talk to that person?
