Would you seek your first love after 40 years?

What would you do if an eighty year old complete stranger comes in front of you with a bunch of flowers claiming that she or he was your first love ( a long time ago ) and that she or he has always thought about you during all these years? I was watching a programme on Italian television in which a gentleman tried to search for his first love after forty years. She could hardly remember him after all these years. What your reaction will be?

I would love it, I have never forgotten my first love and nor he I so if that were to happen we would both be happy. Only last year he was looking for me but the person he asked had their own agenda and didn't pass my number on. Ellie :D

The title should have read 60 years not 40years. It's a pity that the person involved did not pass on your number. Perhaps he was interested in you?

You got it in one, which is sad as the person that didn't pass on the info knew that I would be truly happy if he had but yes he did have his own reasons not to as he was interested in me himself. If it is to be it will be eh! Ellie :D

id say hey lets give it a go and see. if they still care after all that time maybe they're worth it. i have tried looking up a couple of old beau's on myspace and anywho with no luck. Did you see the movie out on DVD now called "Love in the time of Colara?" anyway, if this topic interests you you should see it. its cool that someone would love that long.

Hi ronaldinu, I know I would be very surprised and I guess a little flattered that she had remembered me after all these years. As I'm happily married nothing would come of it, but it might be fun to reminisce. Blessings.

Well at first I would be totally flabbergasted then honored when it finally sunk in that someone carried a torch for me all those years and came forth finally to find me. Maybe we could become friends.

Well, if the genteman was eighty years old, I guess I would be about the same age. At that age I would be flattered that anyone was attracted to me Maybe, after talking with him, I may remember him and some of the events at that time. I guess I would be happy to have a new friend to talk to from time to time.

The strangest thing happened the other day when I joined Friendstar. I searched my high school name and the very first, still handsome person that came up was the man I had my first crush on. I doubt he has thought about me all these years, I'm not even going to request him as a friend.

I definitely would not. I have not forgotten my first love and I have never forgotten his attitude when I asked him about the woman he had gone away with for the weekend and he told me it was none of my business. Since I thought I was going to marry him, silly me, I thought it was my business. That was the day we broke up. He married the woman he went away with. 35 years on and I am glad I did not marry him. I certainly do not want to meet him again.

Love is a great feeling which has to be expressed. If you find it true, never fail to convey, thats a tribute to the love in real.

It depends. But I guess I would be surprised. I would probably try to remember of the times spent together if I'm still single at that time, I would invite her to a date and see if we still have something in common after all these years. It's strange, because people say that will probably react this or that way, and when they confront with the reality they react so strange and different from what they thought they would.

Well my first love is now married and 8 months pregnant. If she tracked me down years from now... well I would catch up and keep in touch but not go any further than that. Not after the crap she put me through! No hard feelings though :)

Maybe would I do is to find out if the feeling is still there. LOL, the flowers are very sweet, romantic. Granted if both of us are still single maybe we can work it out, who knows right? But definetely, you can't tell what actions you would be undertaking.

[i]Hi ronald, I have seen the same story on TV and at 60 years or more, they met again and got married! LOL! Very sweet and inspiring! Well, in my case, if I will have my husband, I will thank this man and tell him that I am in love with my husband and I appreciate all his thoughts..LOL![/i]

Hi ronald If I hadn't seen the man for 40yrs and didn't remember him I would ask him to prove he knew me first..eg to tell me things that I would only know from 40yrs ago but definitley wouldn't be able to accept him just saying he knew me littleowl

I guess I would be gracious but very distant. Just because I am his first love doesn't mean he was mine.If I remembered him, then it would be different. I would be more open.

Hi ronaldinu, Wow! I think it would be wonderful to find out what is life has been like and wether he regets anything at all but then it will never happen to me as I would havet to be going out with someone a lot older than me, but I never had. Tamara

I think it isn't a good idear.Everyone have their own life. It sounds romantic but... when you find he or she is almost a stranger,what will you do?
