Signs You Are Still in Love With Your First Love: Remember that our first romantic experience is one of the most formative and formative experiences of our lives, and one that we never seem to be able to forget. The memories of our first love seem to always seem to linger on in our hearts, just as the first day of university, the first salary you got, or the first kid you had all tend to do. Even though we may have moved on with our lives and had other lovers, it seems as though there is some sort of magical connection that prevents us from ever forgetting the first person who we truly liked with all of our hearts. It is perfectly normal for us to think back on happy memories, such as the first time we got intimate with a particular person, the first time we hugged them, the first time we kissed them, and so on.
On the other hand, the vast majority of people consistently hold the false belief that they have successfully moved on from their first love. There are certain things that you do, both consciously and unconsciously, that make it obvious that you just might still be in love with your first love, despite the fact that you may have moved on to a new partner. If you continue to engage in any of the behaviors that I will describe in the following paragraphs, then you can rest assured that you are still in love with the person who was your most significant first love.
Signs You Are Still in Love With Your First Love
Here are some indications that your feelings for your first love have not changed
1. You have not stopped thinking about them.
If you are the type of person who believes you have moved on from your first love, you shouldn’t dwell on the past too much or think about them too frequently. It is normal to think about your first love from time to time, but you should try to keep this to a minimum. You probably do it unconsciously most of the time, but it amounts to the same thing: you think of them quite frequently. You might be concentrating on something else, but for some reason, your thoughts will always bring you back to them. This is a very clear indication that you are still in love with that person, and that you can’t help but think about them whenever the thought occurs to you.
2. Following them on various social networking sites
Another indicator that you are still in love with your first love is the fact that you find yourself visiting their social media pages more frequently than you are comfortable admitting to anyone else. You check their Facebook profile quite frequently to stay abreast of what’s going on in their life; you consider it your responsibility to be aware of who they are dating at the moment, and you simply can’t help but engage in this behavior. The fact that you are staying abreast of everything that is occurring in their life can, in some small way, serve as a solace for the fact that you are no longer a part of it. You need to come to terms with the fact that you still care about your first love.
3. Comparing your present lover with your first lover
You are unable to prevent yourself from making comparisons in your head between your new lover and the person who was your first real love. You make an effort to compare everything they do to your own. When you think about how your first love would have reacted to something that your new love does, you start to wonder if they would have done it the same way or not. Although you don’t do it on purpose, you can’t help but draw parallels between the two despite the fact that you don’t intend to. If you find yourself comparing every new lover that you enter into a relationship with to your first love, this is a sign that you may very well still be in love with them.
4. Keeping the Dream of a Reunion Intact
There is a part of you that believes there is still a possibility for the two of you to get back together, and there is also a part of you that believes the two of you could potentially have a future together. You can’t let go of the glimmer of hope that one day, by some miracle, this will turn out to be true. In point of fact, you simply cannot wait for it to take place. It is a very clear sign that you are still in love with that person if you still think about and entertain the idea of reconciling with your first love. When you do this, you are showing that you are still in love with that person.
5. Keeping in contact with friends found through common connections
Naturally, all of us share friends in common with our first significant other. There is always that one, two, or three friend that we both share with our first love, and it doesn’t matter how many friends we have. When you keep in touch with mutual friends just to get first-hand information about what is going on in the life of your first love, when you can’t stop asking them how life is going with your first love, when you always want the gist to be about them whenever you meet a mutual friend, frankly, this shows that you haven’t moved on and there are still some lingering feelings for your first love. So, when you can’t stop asking them how life is going with your first love, when you always
6. Going Back to the Locations You Used to Visit With Them
You always have the strong desire, for some inexplicable reason, to take your new partners to the same places that you used to frequent with your first love. This is likely due to the fact that doing so evokes a sense of nostalgia and a flood of pleasant memories within you. If the place where you used to go on picnics with your first love is the same place where you now go on picnics with your new lover and if the place where you used to go on picnics with your new lover is the same place where you used to go on picnics with your first love, then you clearly still have feelings for your first love.
7. They cause a physiological response in your body
This does not necessarily mean just in a romantic sense; you may experience feelings of anxiety or have a hard time thinking clearly when they are around.
Even if you don’t like the way your body follows their every move, they have power over you simply by being there. You can’t help but notice when they walk into a room, and you can’t help but notice when they leave.
Consider the possibility that your body is not reacting to the presence of your partner because it is. The fact that you had a reaction at all indicates that their presence has an effect on you, regardless of the nature of that reaction.
Simply being aware of another person is a sign that you care about them, even if this sign is not immediately obvious. You don’t tune out someone’s presence you care about, it just doesn’t happen.
8. Keeping the presents they gave you as a sweet reminder of them in your possession
You remember the couple’s shirt that you both got for Valentine’s Day, the hair clip that he gave you for your birthday, the handmade bracelet that she made for you on your anniversary, and all of the other gifts and mementos associated with your relationship, right? Do you still have them in your possession? If you are keeping them as some kind of reminders so that you would never have to forget your first love, then it is very likely that you still have feelings for that person. Keeping the presents they gave you as a means of keeping their memory alive is a very clear sign that you care about doing so.
9. Being able to recall each and every facet of the previous relationship that you and the other person shared
It is a sign that you haven’t moved on and that you still have feelings for your first love if you remember every single detail of your relationship with them as well as the memories you shared together exactly as you had them. Reliving memories of your first kiss, sex, arguments, dates, and everything else that occurred while you were with them are signs that you are still in love with your first love. Another sign that you are still in love with your first love is when you find yourself longing for them.
10. Finding it difficult to accept that they have moved on
The realization that they have moved on, either by getting engaged or married, has been the most difficult thing for you to deal with.
The majority of people are unable to successfully move on from a previous relationship because they are unable or unwilling to accept and acknowledge that the love that once existed between them has come to an end.
The sooner you can come to terms with the fact that a relationship is over, the simpler it will be for you to move on to other things. You won’t be able to move on to something new until you’ve dealt with the loose ends from your previous relationship.
