    Describe your first love and what was it like and how many times have you truly been in live?
    I have been in love three times (I'm 31 now) and the first time I was 18/19 years old with my second serious girlfriend.

    My first love felt exciting, scary and in the end heartbreaking. He cheated.

    I've been in love once more after. That's going pretty well

    Yes, I loved them as in I cared for them and wanted the best. But I wasn't in love with them, after a while I couldn't see a future with them, there passions didn't become my passions etc. The girl I was in love with, I thought I'd spend my life with.

    Girls can get away with saying I love you but I'm not in love with you why can't I :P

    I've loved two. One was a guy who I was in a very confusing situation with, which took me almost a year to get over. On paper he was my "perfect" guy in terms of interests and looks, and we always had really interesting conversations but he was a "nice guy" who unintentionally treated me like crap.

    I don't regret meeting or falling for him, because after that I promised myself I would never allow a guy to treat me like that again. The second love is my current boyfriend, he liked me from day one but at the time I didn't want a relationship so we didn't get together until a year after met. I find the way I feel about him interesting because I didn't fall head over heels in love with him from the moment I met him. It was a gradual process, and now I can't imagine being without him.

    that's a wee bit like my current (first) relationship...i met my girlfriend like 2 years ago and we were just friends but I had a crush on her for the whole time and now that we are in a relationship, it seems quite gradual probably because we've known each other for so long...

    Just happened a few months ago.

    First girl I've ever liked. Hopefully last.

    She's basically perfect in almost every way. Just has a past which I soooo badly hope I can get over, cos it really gets me down and causes some friction in an otherwise perfect relationship.

    It's just. Wow. We're so in sync it's unreal.
    Let me guess - she's slept with more people than you have? Maybe she's your first, but you're not hers? If so, it doesn't matter one teeny tiny bit. Not a jot, and you need to get over it, because it would be utterly ridiculous to wreck a relationship due to something she can't change and which doesn't affect your relationship. Unless you allow it to, which it sounds like you are with your "friction." These issues based in insecurities are like self-fulfilling prophecies.

    If I'm wrong, please disregard the above

    Coming from a Mediterranean country, that girl was the only ginger girl in our year and possibly the school. I found her so....mesmerising.

    Haven't seen her in 12 years now.

    exciting, intense and all consuming to confusing, painful and utterly heartbreaking.
    I have loved two people - my first and my current (and seemingly last ) - but its a different love. The first time I was swept away...it was all consuming even when he began to neglect me.

    This love is kind, comfortable - much more complex and beautiful. I know that I can talk to my current- i trust him not to put me down or neglect me - I know him inside out. Its a more mature love, it's not as overwhelming...but it's passionate and warm - so so much better.

    Yes; so much more precise than 'infatuation'. I've loved twice, but would characterise only the first of those experiences as limerent, and doubt that I've the romantic constitution to fall prey to such a profound yet euphoric agony ever again. Thank God.

    Hilarious.

    But seriously, what satisfaction are you getting from writing like that? It would be like using algebra to work out your tax and national insurance on your pay slip. It's needless.
