Well everything that happens to you for the first time is hard to forget.
Love being the strongest of all emotions is definitely the hardest to forget
I don't remember it to have been all that hard, in retrospect, although it did take over two years before I found someone to really replace her. I guess that seemed like kind of a long time back then, although it doesn't now.
What made it as hard as it seemed was the fact that shortly thereafter, I moved from a lilly-white suburb into the cold hard city, and girls were much different, and I had a hard time finding people my own age to relate to.
They're the first imprint of the feeling of love, the sort of yard stick that the others that will come into your life will live by. But it passes and each experience informs and shapes the way you act around the next person you're with
Aha, because they were our introduction into love. Ya know..LOVE! , that shocking feeling, that unexplainable sensation, that passionate what the **** feeling! It's quite an impression to make , to be someones first love.
