Every one of us remembers our first love but no one knows why it happens so. Maybe because it is so exciting, passionate and sensual, so we think it will last for a lifetime; or maybe because it is the first strong feeling in our life to a person that is not a member of our family. Another reason may be that this feeling is so tender and pure, that it leaves its everlasting mark on our lives. So if you keep wondering why you can’t forget your first love even if you want to do it desperately, here are some reasons for that.
1. First intense feelings
As you fall in love with somebody for the second time, you happen to realize that true love differs from mere sympathy immensely. You come to a conclusion that swift-passing infatuation is nothing in comparison with loving somebody to the bottom of your heart. One will never forget his first acquaintance with mature feelings that were unfamiliar before.
2. Everlasting memories
The person who happened to be your first love will never be erased from your memory either by time or by other beloved people in your life. The sweet memories of spending your time together will always be with you and they will remind you of themselves from time to time. They may not mean anything at all, but it’s natural to keep those memories in your memory because, in a way, they have influenced the person you’ve become and they are a part of your happy past.
3. First love is incomparable
You might have already found your the only one but there is always a sacred corner in your heart where your first love is hidden. You have a special connection with your first beloved that is very difficult to break, although your feeling may no longer exist. Moreover, it is unforgettable for those things you do in your life: first kiss, first confession etc.
4. A good beginning makes a good ending
For some people first love may serve as a kind of criterion for other people they choose for relations. For example, when first love is extremely emotional and passionate, any other type of relationships will seem boring or unacceptable. That is why first love becomes more and more valuable and unbeatable if new relations don’t meet the requirements.
5. You’ll be interested in him all the time
Every time you recollect your first love, you will want to know where he is and how he is doing. You may get so interested that you’ll even check him up asking your mutual friend or using social networks. It is absolutely natural to find out about his life once in a while, unless it becomes an obsession.
6. Broken heart for the first time
Very often first love doesn’t last long and ends up with a broken heart. Though the break up may be quite peaceful and you both go your own way as friends, it will surely leave its mark on you. The first break up will be borne in your mind as well as all the other good or bad memories and will affect your future relations the same way.
7. First love will always live in your heart
Irrespective of the span of time passed, the person, you loved for the first time, will be dear to you. That may be no longer strong and passionate feeling, but the deep unseen connection between you two remains. It’s sometimes impossible to explain as you can’t name this feeling love but it is definitely not indifference.
Memories of our young immature love are dear to every person. I advise you to revive the period of your first crush on somebody in your memory from time to time. How was it? Share your impressions in comments.
