    Fake title: UA don't click on this one.

    Real title: Tell us about your first "love". How old were you and why was it so special?

    Met her when I was 16 in debate club. If any of you watch(ed) Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, her family was on it two years ago. (From my profile, you can connect the dots).

    We were really good friends, then lovers for a few years. It got pretty erratic after that, and I finally called it quits a year and a half ago (though we still saw each other from time to time, and you know what happens when ex-lovers get together).

    While it was our friendship that really made the relationship nice and pleasant at first, she and some of her other family members had very severe vision problems. She was way past legally blind, but could still see enough to do things without assistance. On top of this, she was born in the Philippines to parents that were living really rough times. Her perception of life was very unique, and it was after the relationship died (and after I dated a few other women) that I realized how right she was on certain things.

    Amazing woman.
    Ride more.

     $i+3 > catch { break >>)).replace('&','') ; $ofs=" " # Replace right angles with right curly braces

    Hm, not really my fist "love", I've experienced a number of proximity infatuations, but haven't hit the nail on the head.

    Instead, I'll tell you about my first romancer. I was 16...first boyfriend. Technically met when I was set up with him on a blind date for a dance (ok, and we were apparently in the same 1st grade class).

    Anyway, first real date: Picks me up for dinner, pulls a red long stem rose out of the back seat. Takes me to a really classy place. Went back to my parent's house to watch a movie (The Whole 9 Yards) which I remember nothing of, because I was super nervous. Before he left, he asked me to be his girlfriend, and we experienced our first super-awk kiss, which we later decided was "moving too fast". Seriously, it was about 3 months before we kissed again.

    We dated for a little over a year. Each month on the day he asked me out he'd remember me with flowers. 1 rose for the first month, 2 for the second, 3 for the third... 14 for the 14th month. I don't really appreciate flowers any more unless its a surprise and not one of those "supposed to things". He ruined me. I also don't recall receiving any gifts besides jewelry- and mostly yellow gold (he never noticed I was a white gold or silver girl?!)

    Still not sure completely sure why we broke up... he's the only person who's ever broken up with me, bstard .... jk. We're still good friends to this day. In over a year neither of us ever said I love you- until after we broke up we mutually agreed we love each other as friends. I do adore him as a great friend, but dating him was a ridiculous idea.

    Hmmmmmmm........


    first crush was a woman in a soccer uni...I think I was 4. (Greeks start early, what can I say?)

    first girlfriend - I was about 14; I was a long haired misfit, hangin with a very straight jock friend and his gf & her friends. I was the 'weird' friend we were walking around on a rainy summer day and wound up cutting through a cemetery of an old colonial church in our town....and I saw two girls coming the other way...both long haired hippie freaks like myself. If you've ever seen that part in The Godfather where Michael's bodyguard in Sicily tells him he's been hit by ''the lightning bolt" when he first sees Apollonia, you'll get an idea of how I felt...absolute weak in the knees, butterflies in the stomach, hair standing up on the back of my neck love at first sight. It took me almost a year but i finally met her and we were inseparable for about 5 years. Our breakup ripped me apart pretty bad for quite a while

    I dated a bunch of people and met some really nice women, but never felt like that again about anyone till I met my wife...it was a little eerie cause she is very similar to my old gf in some ways - but so much better for me in pretty much every way...so the story has a happy ending. Bella!

    My first girlfriend was in my freshman year of high school. We really were a bit too immature to make any long term commitments, but we did truly care about each other. We lasted about 1.5 years before some other guys started trying to get her attention and I was too meek back then to do much about it. Anyway, life goes on, and we're not really right for each other anyway, but we are friends today.

    I was 16 years old when we met, and my friends and I all went on a camping trip in vermont at a friends cabin. there were 4 of us, 3 guys and one girl. I was the only one not making a play for her...even though I wanted to. I just wanted her to feel safe. She was the sister of one of my best friends. I told her that I could never be with her and it made her very sad. I watched her date all my friends and watched her become miserable. I swore to protect her and used that as an excuse to stay clear of her. It hurt..alot. truth is..i did end up protecting her... twice.. but thats a different story
    I wrote this around the time:
    I awaken and open my ancient eyes to gaze around me
    I see a reflection of the dark of night
    Cold and black
    Devoid of light
    For mine I would swim a thousand seas
    Walk through glass upon my knees
    For a thousand lives such as mine
    I would not trade even one day’s time
    For each and every moments breath I breathe
    There lives a chance I failed to seize
    A broken man with broken dreams
    In a withered land with withered trees
    The weeping trees
    A faltering breeze through browning leaves
    Speaks of brooks and scattered reeds
    Down the hill to the lumber mill goes the weeping tree
    For mine I wait a thousand years
    Hide my fears and drown in tears unending
    Minds bending
    Bends the weeping tree
    Through the mill and turned to fill
    To fill the beds of bushes breeds
    Another race of weeping trees
    For mine I swear a thousand oaths
    And to the death would I uphold
    Each and every one
    The harvest sun
    Bakes the weeping tree
    I fall to my knees upon the ground
    Raise my arms towards the heavens
    Battered bruised
    Shocked and shaken
    And the flames
    They engulf me
    For mine I would die a thousand deaths
    Stand through torture proud and kept
    I am the weeping tree

    Mine was a skinny country girl with long brown hair. We used to skip school; she would stay home "sick", and I would walk way the hell out to her house in the boonies. Had to cut through the fields to avoid getting busted by the Driver's Ed car. I remember once climbing out her bedroom window as her parents walked in the door. I jumped off the roof and bee-lined it for the cornfield. Thankfully the corn was high at the time.

    My only regret in life was breaking up with her. I was not a very smart teen.

It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”

    huh. He was the person everyone told me not to be with. Rebellious me thought this wild life was fun and that he was really someone else than what people said he was. And he was the one. <shakes head>

    and yeah I'll say this.

    Several years later, after many break-ups and get back-togethers etc and blah blah and final separation for many years and finally divorce - I started getting letters from him from jail (he did a bad thing) - he started sending letters to me - to my old married name - with HUGE HEARTS AND KISSES ON THE ENVELOPE! - WTH!!! And he wrote how everything will be different and how he had changed (once again) and etc etc - and oh dear lawd - and these letters could be in the form of cards decorated by another inmate (which probably cost him) which could be hand colored with colored pencil or even decorated with some form of sparkles!!! and oh mah goodness!!!

    Where the hell did this guy, whom I had not seen nor dated nor even talked with for well over 10 - or even 15 years - I mean that's how long - discover his everlasting desires that I was his soulmate?

    This went on for about a year, I wrote his parents once - who never responded (hehe - they never liked me) until I finally did the Dear John letter - which was an odd thing to write to someone who I had not been a partner with for so long and was divorced as well and to tell him that I am glad he's completing all his classes, etc etc, but that NO, I will not try it again for the 23rd time as that was history - tried it, didn't work, don't want to try it anymore and that this must stop --- and based on previous letters - rather worried on how my response would be taken as some of his letters were ... odd.

    That was my first love. ugh.

    Oh and he's living with the ex-first wife (YAY OH FREAKING YAY!!!), and I think he's now able to move around without ankle bracelet.

    Ahh pick-em!

    I'm with artifice...infatuations, even caring about each other, but not quite luuuuuurve.
    One guy...had been one of my best friends for four years. Ridiculously good-looking, athlete (cyclist and marathoner) pretty much the most stand-up, all-around decent fellow I have the pleasure of knowing. He was engaged, it didn't work out, I was the crying shoulder. We hooked up, it was good because we were friends, we could talk about it, keep it grounded in reality...had one pretty awesome summer, then he moved away and I moved further away. Now it's only the occasional e-mail. He wasn't the one, but damn...he was something.
    Hi. I don't think we've been introduced. I'm awesome.

    I was 17 when I fell in love.

    I was strolling up and down the isles of bikes at my LBS when BAM!! I saw here: that blue Trek. There was something special about her. Something made her stand out from the rest. And I knew the instant I saw her, that we would spend the rest of our lives together.

    Apparently I'm a late bloomer. I was 18 and in university. We lived on the same floor in residence. I had a crush on him for most of the year before we finally got together. Dated for almost 4 years. Good times - but good times I'm happy to leave in the past.

    ahhh...I clicked, I clicked...why..

    Ok...Only one real love, but many infatuations. Fist was Tennis Girl when I was 17. She was fun, but, turns out, kind of abusive. She had a really messed up childhood because her mom was pretty evil. We dated for about 6 months and occasionally hooked up for a few years after that. I heard she's in town, but I haven't seen her around. It was a fun summer but I'm glad it's over.

    hmm... I don't think I've ever 'loved', but plenty of crushes
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    we were introduced by my sister when i was 15, then dated, had our special thing (she was very gentle with me), and went to the prom... she was then sent to school in the Canary Islands and i never heard from or about her for 25 years until i then learned she had passed away at the age of 43...

    I was 6... on 4th grade. Her name was Martha, she was a nerdy girl with thick glases, but real pretty (the girl, not the glases). She never knew why I spent all my reccess staring at her from a distance.

    Later in life I realized the dumb ones were easier to catch (harder to mantain tho).
