    A very interesting article. I remember my first love because it was pure, sweet, untainted. The reality of life, unfortunately, took away that innocence, although inevitable. I enjoyed this article very much. Thank you.

    Wonderful, you’ve taken me down memory lane. He’s dead now, died in a plane crash, but I can still recall the smell of Old Spice after shave :-)

    Obviously if your “first” love was so great than why didn’t it work out. To hold on to memories about a past romance while your with someone else is selfish and wrong. This is probably why women sneaky and flighty. I am male and personally I can’t remember my first kiss, love, lay and I believe that is how it should be, because I can start every relationship like it is my first. I can make the current person most important in my life, rather living in the past. Grow up

    I ran into the parents of my high school sweetheart a couple of weeks back. Her mom hugged me tightly and the very first thing she said to me was that Karen has always said over the years that I was her nicest boyfriend. I hope that means she has thought of me over the years as often as I have thought of her. It is true what they say. A man never forgets his first love.
