How old were you? Do you still think about your first love? I am 42, and I still think about my first love every once in a while. Take care.

Really, true love? I was 16 and I think about him quite often. Perhaps I should stop now.

Hi Gtargirl! Well nothing wrong with that. Do you know what happened to him through the years? Would you want to know? Take care, groetjes.

I would like to find out how he's been but I don't think we'll ever connect again. However, I did find his son on FaceBook.

Hi Margajoe! I was 16 years old when I first fell in love and I was his first love too. We didn't really get to have a relationship since I got scared of what love can do to me. haha..I still think about him once in awhile and wish that he is happy with his life as much as I am with mine. Take care and have a great day! loveslot..faith

Hi Faith! How are you? Hope all is well. Scared of Love and what it can do to you. I remember that feeling. I still think about my first (and others later), hoping they turned out well and are happy. I was never very lucky when it came to love. But the first always seems to be the closest in my memory. Thank-you for commenting. Take care.Greetings.

haha..when I was young I really didn't know any better. I thought if I will fall in love, I will get pregnant and I want to finish school first. haha..But seriously, I know myself very much and knowing how passionate I am, I am not sure if I can handle a serious relationship at that time. So, I decided to just wait for awhile. But sometimes, I wished I decided otherwise. lovelots..faith

Hi Faith! Sounds to me like you made a wise decision. I got married when I was 18. That did not bring me much. 9 years later I was divorced with two little children. But, I can understand the curiosity. If I were to do it over again, believe me, I would not have gotten into a relationship before I finished my school. Knowing what I know now, I would have done a lot of things different. But that's life I guess. Learn from mistakes and move on. Well, I better get some sleep! It is already 5:20 AM!!! And I wanted to go to bed early. Not this early though. Well take care, sweet dreams and have a nice day. Greetings and Blessings.Wishing you all the best.

Falling in love is not my strongest point in life, I don't fall in love quick, but when I do, I fall deep and hard. Anyhow, I have had several crushes, but they've only been crushes, I'm guessing the first time I really fell in love was when I was about 12years old. He was the boy who sat in front of me at class. We'd really talk, and during those few minutes in between classes, we'd talk. It was an amazing feeling because the girl who sat beside him was the batch's prettiest and most popular, but he'd rather talk to me. He was cute. He was also very popular among girls and I soon found out (when I was in 4th year high school) that more than half of the class girls had a crush on him. Anyway, he left our school for high school and I never saw him again, but the feeling lasted till I was in college. Whew! I was really inlove with the guy. Courtship wasn't really 'a thing' way back in my time. There wasn't any boyfriend/girlfriend status for kids (unlike now-a-days). Hope my boyfriend doesn't read this!

Hahaha! Even if your boy friend was to read it, it was before his time. And you are right, the times were different then. We could be in love without the fiscal stuff the kids go through now a days. It was more an emotional thing. I think a lot of kids now a days don't even know this feeling. It is so sad. That is so great when the boy rather talks to you, than to the popular girl. I can imagine that was a great feeling. Do you ever wonder what became of him? Thank-you for commenting. Take care.

Yeah, he's with someone now. He's somewhere in the world away from my place. He doesn't look as good as I remember though, I saw his photos in friendster and facebook. I never bothered to say HI because I'm pretty sure he has forgotten me. But that's okay, I have a wonderful man now and much much cuter. Hahaha! Hope my boyfriend reads this! hahahahaha!

Hahaha! Yes he would like that. Isn't that funny, how the memory makes the person look so good. I remember a boy I thought was so cute, and I thought I was is love. Then I saw him again after a couple of months and I was so disappointed. He was not anything like I had created him in my mind. hahaha! I am happy you have a great guy now, and he is cute. That is great. I wish you all the best. Take care.

Well yes it is funny how emotions take over. When your young, it just all seems to be right. And for young people, it is not just puppy love. It is real, but hard to understand. The feeling of being in Love, that is great to remember. Thank-you for commenting. Take care.

I was 17,when I first fell in love.Before that I had crushes for some beautiful girls,but I know that relationship would not succeed.But with this girl,I lost my senses,just fell in love without thinking of the possibilities of getting positive result.Well,that affair ended one side love.I still remember that love and it can't be forgotten.Cheers!

Well, I know people say that young people are too young to fall in love. But that's not true. It's not age that matters, it's maturity. I was 14 when I started dating this guy, and 15 when I fell in love with him. But then I realized I was an idiot because he cheated on me all the time. Yes, really cheated. Then we broke up and I still love him, just not like that. He moved away, and I moved on. I thought I was in love with this other guy, but that was all a big joke. lmao. And now I'm with the love of my life and happily married for a year and a half.

I am happy for you! Being with the love of your life is a treasure for sure! Yes, when we are young we tend to fall in love. But, it is not always the love of your life. Somehow the first love seems to be different then all the others. Wishing you all the best. Welcome to MyLot! Thank-you for commenting. Take care, have a nice day.

That is easy, I was 15 and I absolutely loved that boy. I still think about him from time to time. I wouldn't say that I am still in love with him, but I will always have a love for him. He was my first everything. He was my best friend, my first love and my first...You know...well that was a long time ago and we lost touch many years ago. I wish I could talk to him again, but I wouldnt even know how to find him. He has an extremely common name, i mean real common, googling him turns up millions and millions of results.

Yes, that is not easy to find when someone has a common name. I was 15 as well. And I left to get married when I was 18 with someone else. And when I was 27/28 I looked him up. I found one very jealous wife! After a couple of years he said he was going to leave his wife, because she was not good for his daughter out a previous marriage.(I was already long divorced) I believed him. That was the first time we did it, hahaha! From 15 to +/- 30, that is a long wait. Then I went on with my life and started a cafe in Belgium. My best friend and my boy friend got close because I had no time. Not enough for fowling around like a teenager. Then one day I went to visit my parents in Holland and the telephone rang. It was his wife, she knew nothing about him wanting to leave. She thought I had an affair with him and was very angry. I calmly said it was not me, it was my best friend. hahahah! Well it was. I gave her the telephone number and address of my best friend.(I really loved doing that, hahaha!) Well that relationship was over and he was back with his wife. And of course I never wanted anything more to do with my so called best friend! I have no respect for best friends taking away my boyfriend. And I did not know his wife and him were still together. So my best friend got what she deserved. What comes around goes around. Well what I want to say is: I wish I had not started with him again. I wish I had not looked him up. I should have left it the way it was. That special feeling I had for him is gone. Now I only feel sorry for him, he never got his life together. I still feel for him, but not like I used to. Take care, have a nice day. Thank-you for commenting.

Falling in love is one emotion everyone go through but more than love first love usually is a crush which ppl think it is love and over the time u realise it was a crush. Usually children have crush on someone even at young age. My first crush was a girl from my school and i was six years old at that time and i did manage to ask her if you would be my girl friend and it took me so many days of practice and took lots of courage to do it

That is so cute! 6 years old. I think that would have taken a lot of courage. And when you asked her to be your girlfriend, did she say yes right away? Thank-you for commenting. Take care.
