I had heard a lot of people talk about how deep being in love for the first time could be and how much it could hurt when it ends, so I was determined not to let that happen to me.
When I met Dan, I didn’t even see the potential of a relationship, I just saw him as a cool guy that I loved to hang out and spend time with and before I could catch myself, it was too late.
We got to the point where I was deeply in love with him but I knew deep down that he didn’t feel the same way, yet I couldn’t stop myself.
That was ten years ago now and we have led separate lives but a part of my heart still pines for the love that could have been between us. First, cut really is the deepest.
