We all have the high school sweetheart, that one person we fall completely head over heels for. Is your FI/ SO/ Darling Husband that person or someone different?
My Fiance is a completely different person from my first love. I don’t regret it, but it makes me wonder what I saw in them. What about you?

My first love was a real jerk…. just took me a while to figure it out 🙂
I’ve been friends with my Fiance since about 6th grade and I had a raging crush on him from the second I met him. My friends and I like to joke about how I’ve *always* been in love with him. So maybe he was my first love 😉

Thank G-d I am not with my “first” love. He was/is a loser…. I have no idea what I saw in him? Maybe that I could save him.
My FH is everything I wanted on paper… which is great, but even better he is everything I wanted in my heart. It just works. We agree on all the important stuff, and disagree on all the stuff that makes life interesting.

So happy that I am not with my high school boyfriend! He’s such an ass but at the time with me he was a really good guy..until the end when he became a cheating a*hole but anyways….When we first started dating he found out that I wasn’t a virgin at the beginning of our date. He cried the whole night! And I thought that girls were suppose to be the sensitive ones.
It seems odd but with my boyfriend now it seems like we have been together forever. I still turn to him to say “don’t you remember so and so from high school? Or don’t you remember what happened at this football game” and then realize that we met almost 10 years AFTER high school.

Far from being my first love. I have no regret in not staying with any of the exes, but I went through a lot of toads to get to my prince.

My first love was a complete A$$hole! I look back and I am like what was I thinking, i did everything for this fool. But in the end after all the tears were shed, I knew what I wanted in my next relationship, if the guy didn’t fit the bill I knew how to move on quickly. When I finally met my husband as soon as we made eye contact I knew he was the one, everything just felt right and he treated me like a queen! No regrets, I am absolutely loving my life now!

Mine is not my first love, but he is definately my first true love

Not at all. He’s not even the first I thought I was going to marry. I was certain I was going to marry my college boyfriend. And my high school boyfriend (and the two of them are complete opposites of each other–the nice boy next door vs the hard assed bad boy). My husband is a fabulous mixture of the two.
Funny though, my HS boyfriend was at our wedding (with his new wife) and my college Boyfriend or Best Friend edited my vows for me (he’s a writer).

@KaitlinHudson: My fiance is not my “first love.” I was actually engaged previously and called off the wedding. Turned out to be the best decision ever because I fell in love with my fiance!! He was also previously married.

Yup! Of course, we broke up for almost five years in the middle (two and a half of those years with almost no contact). Gave us enough time to grow up and become the people we needed to be. We each dated other people in the middle, but now we realize that the best we ever had was what we first had, and now we have the experience and maturity to appreciate it.

Here’s a funny story: I went to high school with my SO and had the HUGEST most embarrassing crush on him. I knew which spot was his in the student parking lot for crying out loud!! (altho there were less than 100ppl in our graduating class) so i crushed on him for 3 years. and after I graduated, I was FINALLY introduced to him at a house party. He stuck out his hand and said Hi I’m blahblah, what school did you go to??? I was shocked!!! He had no idea I existed, while I was hopelessly in puppy love! and we went to the same school! 8 years and two kids later, we are planning our wedding together. Although, in our early twenty’s we did break up for nearly 18 months, we had ALOT of maturing/growing to do. He was my first everything (EVERYTHING) and now he’ll be my last as well!

I honestly believe that we have more than one soulmate. My first love is an amazing man and he taught me about relationships and how to love and how I should be treated. I will always have a special place in my heart for him. I have had one serious love in between my first love and my Darling Husband so I guess it’s safe to say 3rd times a charm.

I had several loves before my husband, and remain friendly with almost all my exes. They’re all generally neat people, and I learned alot from those relationships.
