Why is it that everyone says your 1st is so hard to get over? What makes the 1st one so different from the 3rd 4th or 5th? People say that you'll never forget the 1st one...Do you think that's true?

Personally, I don't think a first love is any different than a second or third or whatever. I think it depends more on how you felt about that person, and your memories of what happened with the two of you. If two people had a very serious relationship, no matter which "number" it was, it's going to be difficult to just move on.

However, people do move on. It's just not positive to get fixated on a relationship that's already over. Your life isn't going to stop if you break up with someone, though sometimes it feels that way.

I think in general your first love is huge because for a lot of people, it starts in your teens. And with hormones and the general craziness that surrounds adolescence, love can feel a lot more intense than when you're older.

Also, the first time you fall in love, you're not cynical or wary of the hurt of a broken heart, so most people tend to dive in head first.

That's just my two cents.

I think your first love is at times more meaniful. It's the first person you do a lot of those "couple" things with, especially if it's a lengthy relationship. You may have your first 1yr anniversary, and/or your firt very special Valentines Day, and Birthday, and Christmas. Your first real relationship is your first first time for a lot. Who can ever forget those times.?
