My First Love

Yup, I am joining another blogging challenge in tne interests of keeping this thing moving!! Over at Word Nerd Speaks, a weekly challenge is going on in which everyone writes a post about a chosen topic!

This week, the topic is First Love, and as this is a dating blog, it seemed like a good time to join in!

When I think about who my real first love was, my brain gets in a tangle. You see, for me, there are different levels of first love. A first crush can feel like first love, then a first boyfriend, and finally the more....grown up version of love, the first time you feel it.

When anyone asks me who my first love was, I often tell them it was Patrick Swayze in Dirty Dancing! When I was around 6 or 7, I watched the movie for the first time and I swear that man is the reason my expectations of men are so high!

It wasn't until I reached high school that I got to experience those feelings towards a real person. I won't mention him by name, but he was my first boyfriend. He wasn't even remotely like Patrick Swayze, but that was okay with me. He was fun, sexy, sweet. Although our relationship was pretty short lived and full of ups and downs, I sometimes think that it was one of the best relationships I have ever been in - present relationship aside.

Who was your first love? Did that person feel the same way? Are you still together?

  1. I was 11 years old. I had girl friends, but I never saw them as girls. Then she came to our school. From the first moment I saw her, I knew there was something about her.

    When we were in high school, we dated for 2 years, which in high school is a bit of a record. We broke up senior year for reasons I won't go into here, and went our separate ways.

    I got married. She got married. I actually video taped her wedding.

    I got divorced, and 10 years after high school, we got back together. We got married 2 years later & had 18 wonderful years.

    Then August last year, she tells me she is leaving me for someone else.

    Well, it was nice for a while.

  3. Great blog! My first love was the love of learning, as I blogged about. However, with people I didn't truly know love until my second husband. It's certainly a feeling unlike any other.

  4. It was so sad to see strong, good looking Patrick Swayze dwindle through his illness. He is missed.
