Day 3 - My First Love

Okay, I have to preface by saying that I'm actually going to break this up into two different kinds of people.

1) A first love, as in someone that I really loved, but didn't necessarily feel the same way about me, and

2) A first love that was someone I fell in love with, and who DID feel the same way about me.

So, person 1, people may say that because I was a teenager it was probably just a huge crush, but I don't feel that way. In my sophomore year of high school, I met Aaron G. Getting to know him, I truly came to love him (as much as a teenager can, I suppose). I had never felt that way about anyone. I had had many crushes before, and this was more than that. He and I became good friends, and about a year after he graduated from HS (he was a year older than me, and at that point had moved to another town), we lost touch. I wish I had kept in touch, just to see how his life went. (I finally found him a few years ago, after having searched for several years. I contacted him by email, mostly a sending out into the universe type email, and he responded back. He asked me for my number so we could get in touch, but really, I had said all I wanted to say, and wanted to retain this wonderful memory of the person I knew him to be at that time. I don't regret not getting in touch with him on the phone.) Knowing him led to the second person I loved after him, in my early young adult years (they had that similar "thing" that me me love them) -- though, I would say, that second person was someone I had a more mature love and understanding for. That person and I became really good friends, and at times I thought "maybe," but it wasn't meant to be, because ....

I eventually met Brian, my husband. I would have to say that he was the first person I fell in love with that fell in love with me. He was my first boyfriend, but that's all I needed. ^_^ I know I should probably have so many things to say about Brian, but bottom line: he pursued me (which was refreshing for me); he said the "I love you" first; and he is my best friend. From the moment I met him, I was comfortable with him and could talk to him about anything. Doesn't my marrying him say everything else?! ^_^
