Clear as a bell
Kinda/sorta okay. Not really. No.
With great fondness
With great disdain/contempt/hate is such a strong word, no?
We have not yet been properly introduced
I remember my first love clearly. I was so worried about rejection my friend had to force me to ask her after he had assured me 5x over she would say yes. Nice girl, but bad family life. She was doomed from the start, but I was as good a b/f as I could be. Circumstances beyond our control broke us up, so I guess I remember her in a good light.
That and she had an incredible rack at age 15.

Depends on whether we're talking about a puppy love crush kind of thing or actual real love.
If it's the former, it was my best friend when I was 8. Her name was Kirby and she was the first girl I ever kissed.
If we're talking about actual true love, I didn't find that until I started dating my future wife at 19.
If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.
If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
When I was 17 (I'm 40), I actually thought, for a number of months, that I could spend the rest of my life, happily, with this person. We married at ~20 and divorced ~24. It's the only time I've been in love (that youthful year). I only say it (selectively) to family. I show "it", to my friends and lovers.

I remember it clearly (I was 16/17 at that time).
At first, we were really happy. After two years, she realized she is transsexual and wanted to become a guy, which is when our relationship ended. That actually relieved me, because I had been feeling something is wrong all along, but she had always denied that. Then I finally knew what it was.
We're still buddies, he has made his way and is a happy and successful guy now. Last year, my fiancée and I attended his and his boyfriend's civil union ceremony in a church and I was asked to give a blessing.
