    The novel will reminisce you about the old school days when everything used to be simple and the first love memories. The reason my love story is so compelling to read is because there is something so powerful about a young love experience. It happens when our hearts are still innocent and pure, relationship that will forever remember the hugs, cuddles, holding hands, sweet whispers, long drives, late night conversations and the romantic strolls. First love is the first experience of intimacy. Hugs, kisses and cuddles in a first love relationship form the basis of the sweetest lifelong memories. This is the time when a simple act of holding hands makes you sweat and a romantic hug gives you goosebumps all over your body. People don't fall in love for the first time with expectations or malicious intentions. It is pure attraction, led by the heart and not the mind. The whole world seems beautiful and life becomes perfect. The only thing truly unique about my own story is that I found my love so young, before that first inevitable heartbreak. An unfinished love keeps some allure for many years. Just like how the euphoria of falling in love is extreme, so is the subsequent heartbreak. If love was a poker game, first love can be described as going All In. Peaking levels of happiness weaken sense of judgment and make it hard to draw boundaries. This makes you do stupid things including committing too early, putting your hopes into one person, getting intimate even if you are not sure. Your first love will be one who will be the hardest get over. You think it’s going to last forever, but it only lasts in a matter of seconds strung out into elongated moments. And then it ends, just like that. It seemed simple to me, I was young and naive and I had more faith in romantic indie films, holding hands and doing those small little things to make her happy. At first glance, it seemed infinite. But looking back after these past years, I can see it for how it really was, and that’s kind of sad. I’m not wise and I’m not old. I’m a 21-year-old college student, but I do know what it’s like to fall in love and still cling onto those moments because there is just too much history to push aside. I used to get really melancholy at times, because I remember that she had this hold on me. It’s not permanent, but the girl who hurt me a consecutive amount of times, and in the worst ways ever, will be my first love. However, if you’ve never fallen in love, it will be difficult for you to understand. It’s not that simple. You can’t just “let go” completely. It’s not just a “somebody” that you mindlessly dated for a few months before you broke up. Once you move on from your first love, there will be a disheartening sense of realization that you will never be able to recreate this perfectness in love again. But TIME HEALS, ALL WOUNDS. Sometimes your heart needs more time to accept what your mind already knows. The novel will give you a series of flashback.
