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?
