It's a true saying that we never get over our first love. But why is that? You may have moved on, you're probably in another relationship and years might have passed since you were with them, but then every time you think about it, it seems like yesterday. Life may have happened for you, but your first love wasn't ever over for you.
Here are 6 reasons why you can never get over your first love.
All those feelings were new, something you haven't felt before. The beating of the heart and the uncontrollable urge to kiss this person. You've never felt that kinda attraction towards anybody before and you had the attraction reciprocated.
You've had most of your 'firsts' with them. You may be in a better place right now but each time you think about the first time you were physically intimate, you think of them. Even your intimate moments now will never be as exciting or exhilarating as it was your first time.
You were young, inexperienced and probably didn't know how to handle it. That's why it ended before you could wrap your mind around it. You regret it only because you could've done it differently right now and you only missed out because you didn't know better.
First love is fearless, adventurous and probably even foolish. It is pure and innocent, without any selfish motives or malice. The only thing you want to do is spend your time in their arms and you wish the world would just stop spinning when you're with them. Even if you're in a relationship now, you have more responsibilities because you're grown up and you also understand what it's like to lose the person you love, so you're also in a constant state of fear. You can't be entirely free like you were with your first love.
Even though it turned you into the person you are right now and you're a lot wiser, it still broke your heart. You felt hurt and you were grieving. You felt such emotions for the first time and you had no idea how to deal with them.
Even though you were young, you wanted it to work out like nothing else. The fact that it didn't for whatsoever reasons still haunts you and you are ever in a state of wonder regarding 'what if'. That question still haunts you and you would probably want to relive those moments again.
