I Learned Something From My First Love

    Dont trust anyone. I mean anyone.

    People are not as kind as they look and even less kind than they act. Secondly, never tell a girl your true feelings, she will remember it and one day she will use it against you.

    I mean i guess you learn something from every

    single person you share your life with, even if you learn with the hard way. I learned that i have to love myself and i deserve a good person by my side, i dont know if i ever going to find that person, maybe not but at least im clear in what i want in my life.

    Friendship is important.

    But even when you think you have built that foundation as strong as you'd like it to be, they might still leave, and choose to forget everything, including the bond you both shared. And you can't hold them back. You should not. You have to let them go have/seek their own...

    First Love is truly unforgettable

    for most of us. No matter how much we try, these fellas are always meant to stay in our hearts. For years, I thought "What makes him so different?" It's innocence. It's something that makes it so sacred. something new will always be special to us. Especially if it's our first...

    the age of 35. I never knew what love was until I met him. I learned from him that not all men are horrible. You don't necessarily need a fairy tale ending to love someone. Just caring about that person above yourself is the best feeling ever. It won't ever work like it should...

    As a teenager, I understand what goes through the adolescent mind. Love is one of the first things on it. If you think you’re in love at a young age, more than likely you’re not. When I was 16 I thought I was in love for the first time with an older guy online who lived...

    I learned if they lie once,

    give them a second chance. If they lie twice, be worried but give them another chance. If they lie CONSTANTLY you need to know you're better than that and can find someone else. Don't stay with a liar!! No matter how big or small the lies are.

    If a guy cheats on his girlfriend with you,

    he's going to cheat on you, too. If you show up at his house in the middle of the night, guys find that creepy. If a guy likes to dress in woman's close, he's probably "heteroflexible." Love isn't always reciprocated, and you can love someone too much. Drugs change people...
