I remember hearing so often that a 16 year old doesn’t fall in love, it’s “only hormones” or “it’s lust, not love”.
Well, here I am. 29 years old, in great shape, great looking (or so they tell me). I’ve got a job that pays 35$ per hour and am the co-owner of a business on the side. Altogether bringing in almost 150 G’s a year. I’m confident, outgoing, and very successful with women, and guess what. I’ve never felt true love for anyone but that one girl in high school, and I can’t imagine ever feeling that way again for anyone else. I don’t think it’s possible.
Sadly, she moved thousands of miles away and eventually married somebody else before I could graduate and move to where she was to get her back.
One day I will die, and on that day, I will remember the most important relationship I’d ever had, an incredibly, feircely burning love, at the age of only 16. I lost it forever, and so forever I will be lost.
