    Is it difficult to forget your first love?

    First love is something which gives you the biggest happiness in the world. Each and every person goes through this phase in life. But if you are not with your first love right now. Is it possible to ever forger him/ her?

    Rarely does one forget the "first anything" which had an impact.
    What usually makes a "first love" difficult to forget is our first heartbreak. For many people it's the worst one of them all!
    Some people never allow themselves to be "all in" again.
    During the time of a "first love" it's usually when we're teenagers lacking in worldly experience, naïve, gullible, and extremely optimistic about our future. We've never been hurt before.
    Lots of people truly believe they've met their soul-mate at age 16.
    For many of us our "first love" usually takes place during a time where (we have very few responsibilities or obligations).
    Therefore we're free to be whimsical and internally romanticize the slightest of activities and time we spend together.
    Adult love on the other hand comes after heartbreak, disappointment, betrayal, and wisdom gained from experience.
    We now have our "must have" list, "red flags" we look for or things to avoid, and we don't (assume) feelings are mutual.
    We also have demanding jobs, bills to pay, or possibly children from past relationships or marriages that keeps us "grounded in reality". Our wants/needs of mate also evolve over time.
    What made a guy/girl an ideal mate at 16 might not fly at 26, 36, or beyond. As we get older our list of "must haves" changes.

      Thank you for your comment..i think you are right its more difficult to forget your first heartbreak..and definitely age brings maturity... and being a scorpio i think you are much more intense about your feelings..scorpions never forget their past.

    Off the cuff I say no. My first love was Michelle when I was a first grader or about six years old. Hence I still remember her. Herein we may enter a discussion of what it is to be a lover and beloved. Is there some kind of age limitation for that like the movies having PG, G, M, and R? In other words, was my first love rated PG, so has no validity with an 'adult' perspective?
