When you're in love

First love is always memorable

What is love to you? How do you feel when you're in love? Since most of us have the same feelings I'm just gonna express it representing all the lovers out there. Lets begin with the first time when you know that you are in love. How did I feel?I will share my personal experience which is really beautiful.

I was 18 years old. He was my neighbour.He asked for my email address from one of my friends. I was kind of surprised when he asked for my email address as we had never spoken to each other before. Anyways, he was my neighbour so I didn't mind giving it at all. We first started chatting at the cyber cafe. He was funny and humorous. He cracked jokes alot.One of the weaknesses of girls is that they can fall for guys who have a good sense of humour.We started chatting and then sending emails.This continued for a long time.I started feeling something for the first time that I hadn't felt before.


And then he proposed to me via email and I accepted him.After that every time we bumped into each other accidentally I used to feel extremely shy.My heart used to beat faster and I couldn't even face him.He hated it because every time he wanted to talk to me, I would just run away.And when I used to see him riding in his bike.Oh man!!I would just fall for him.He looked damn cool.I wanted to be pretty for him.A person like me who was never concerned about her looks started to spend time on beautifying herself.

And then we started dating.Yes!!Can you believe it if I said that it took a whole year for us just to hold hands? I was very shy and so was he.We used to roam around in the streets at night and it felt so wonderful.With the beautiful stars and the moon above we used to share our feelings.How I completely fell for him and he fell for me.One day during the full moon he gave me a surprise.He held me and knelt down and kissed on my hands.I turned red and felt very hot.I lost my consciousness.We hadn't even kissed in a year.But that was how it started.A kiss on the hand was the first kiss I got from him.People talk about the importance of physical relationships and the frequency of dating as important parts in a relationship.But here you can see, we weren't so physically interested at that moment. All what we wanted was love.

Three years of relationship and I became crazier for him day by day. Without listening to his voice I couldn't sleep.I had to see him at least once a day.Since I used to stay at home alone with my helper, I used to invite him.His mother was a vegetarian due to her religion but my boyfriend loved meat.I used to cook him chicken every time he came.He simply loved it.Never did we have sex in our room even when he came so many times to my house.He knew that I preferred to stay that way and sex before marriage for me was against my desire.

This is a short story of my love story. I completely lost myself in love .Three years yet I felt shy with him.He was my first love.I don't currently have a boyfriend but I've always loved him and he loves me too.Due to unfavorable circumstances we had to break up after 3.5 years but he would remain in my memory as the guy I loved.I know he is still out there loving me but I want him to move on now.I always thought that since he was the first, he would be the last person that I'll love but life always shows some twists.He was the first one who made me feel what love is and to him I was the first.We couldn't be together forever but the memories would always be forever.



Let me now tell you how I felt exactly. I felt like talking to him always. I wanted to see him outside whenever I was in my veranda. I felt like running to him accidentally while walking on streets. I started to take care of my looks as well. I was eighteen and had lots of pimples n my face. I wanted to take care of them. I didn't want to get sun burnt anymore. I stared to look myself at the mirror frequently. Every time I went out I started being conscious about my looks.But the thing is I wasn't sure about whether I loved him or not.Especially I come from a very strict family and I was scared of having affairs.I am from Asia by the way.So, I didn't know if he had those feelings for me as well.

I confirmed that he had feelings for me when he expressed it to my best friend.She told me that he was in love with me.I was exited as well as scared. I knew I had a huge crush on him but I wasn't sure if I was really in love. I asked myself.I couldn't hold it any longer.I took a step to go against my strict family and fall in love with this wonderful guy.It was a big decision made by me.When you read this you may feel like whats the big deal about falling in love? But as I already told you I come from a family which is strict regarding these matters I didn't have the permission to fall in love.
