first love quotes

We all have our first love. For most of us, first love is our very first emotional relationship that also involves a lot of memorable firsts. We tend to invest all of our time and effort for our first love. Being with our first love involves a lot of silly arguments but we always find a way to patch things up before the day ends. 

However, to be in a relationship with your first love does not really guarantee a happy ending. When the relationship ends, we usually refer to our first love as “The one that got away.” The truth is, sometimes love is not enough for a relationship to last. One of the reasons is that we unknowingly took the love for granted thinking nothing will make that person leave. But just like plants, we need to water the relationship and give it its much-needed sunlight to keep it alive. 

Below are over 100 first love quotes. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
