The first time you fall in love just may be the hardest you’ll ever fall. Falling in love for the first time is almost dream-like, and I truly believe it’s incomparable. Perhaps this is because it’s all just so new and exciting to feel the warmth, love and acceptance from another person.
Perhaps it’s because your heart is a clean, untainted slate, yet to be damaged. All of a sudden, all of the little things they do become perfect. Even the way they get angry at you somehow retains a cute and endearing façade because after all, that’s your Prince Charming who’s yelling at you.
The second time you fall in love is going to feel different. It’s going to feel real. The dreamlike fantasy has somehow vanished, and that’s because you now know that not every fairytale has its happy ending. No matter how hard you try not to compare it to your first love, you will. And that’s normal.
