    Your first love

    Do you remember? Some members are awfully young, here. Have you even met your first love yet?

    Love or infatuation? My first infatuation was a gal named Faith. My first love however was a gal named Katie. Didn't meet Faith until I was in 8th grade. Didn't meet Katie until I was 22. Then after all that I didn't meet my real love until I met my wife at age 25.

    Btw, voted for "quite clearly" but "with great fondness" works also. On both of them.

    Love. The kind whereby you ... man. I remember being in the back of a deuce-and-a-half. Doug looked up as he was going to help me down, and I remember to this day, 30+ years later, how his blue eyes were a match for the October sky, and I promptly quit breathing. I remember pretending to beat on him, laughing, when he looked at me and sang "Wish you could come, but I don't need no woman tagging along."

    Re: Your first love

    I married her and 33 years later she betrayed me. Not who I thought she was at all.

    You married your first love?

    I hear ya. I was betrayed after 13 years of marriage, and had the same shock and disbelief. Almost threw away the entire marriage, assuming it had all been a lie. But we WERE happy for at least 12 years. I'm not giving up that reality simply because that man no longer exists.

    I'll never forget the day, she turned up on my doorstep, she was a really dark black, with holes in all the right places, I plugged in and away we went for hours, I'll always remember that X-box.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    But I notice you didn't vote the disdain/contempt vote (I didn't make the votes public, but nobody has voted that as yet.)

    Re: Your first love

    Yeah. I also remember the types of love I experience evolving as I'm getting older.

    I had a high school sweetheart. We were together for 2 years. We cared about each other a lot, and loved each other in the way we could at the time. But I can't quite figure out what it was based on. We're still friends - and I'm not sure he knows either. Anyway, it was a nice ride, and we both walked away from it fondly.

    But it doesn't hold a candle to the type of love I experience now. The definition of my "first love" has changed. I thought it was that high school sweetheart... but I think I was wrong about that.

    Nah. I met my first love about 2.5 years ago. And it's pretty much the saddest thing ever. We broke it off, for practical reasons - I was leaving the country - in the hopes that if we did it early we'd get over it.

    That never happened. It still hasn't happened. It's been a year. We've carried on, dated other people. We had to make a rule that we don't talk while we're dating other people. But eventually that got stupid, and we're both single (for reasons unrelated to each other), and in the same place with it. This is ridiculous, but it's still there, and it's not going away. We send letters - paper ones - sometimes. We get into stupid self-defeating conversations, and idly talk about a visit sometime. A time that generally seems to exist somewhere in the mid-term future. It's a sleeping dog that stretches itself out, and waits until we're ready to deal with it.

    We're not yet.
