The first love- there’s nothing like it. Being in love for the first time is almost magical a feeling, and the memories of it remain etched in our minds forever. The entire experience is like a little fairy tale-a fairy tale we hope never ends. While some are lucky to have a lasting relationship with the first person they ever fell in love with, some of us have to endure the gut-wrenching pain of it ending. A part of us changes forever, and eventually, we become grateful for it because it makes us who we are.

Here are 12 life lessons we learn from our very first love.
