When I met my first love, I was fifteen years old. I had spotted him working in my local shop, and decided I really liked him. I told my friends about him, and they decided to set us up together.
Our first date was fantastic. We clicked as though we had known each other all our lives. We had both come from step-parent families, were the same age, and had lot's more in common. I had really strong feelings for this guy-Robert. It was as though we were the same people, Soulmates.
He asked me out about three weeks later, and I immediately said yes, I didn't have to think about it.
We were so happy, we knew we were meant to be together forever, it felt so right.
Time passed, and we left school and got jobs. We started to spend less time together, so it meant the time we had was more special. Then we stared arguing, mainly because I worked in a male-dominated workplace. I decided the end was nigh, and we inevitably split up. Just three days after we split up, my friends called and asked me to go to a party, and told me Robert would be there. I decided not to go. It was then that he slept with one of my best friends. The whore of the group to be exact. I was devastated.
I met Robert a few weeks later. We talked, and decided to have another go at 'us'.
Things were great again. I slowly started to trust him more, and even got a new job so he wouldn't get jealous of me working with other guys!
I went out with him for just under three years, and decided it was time to move on. We broke up and he begged for another chance. As much as I wanted to give him it, my decision was final.
It broke both our hearts.
Now we've been apart for a couple of months, I realise I love him more than ever. I would do anything to have him back. But I broke his heart, and he's told me he hates me, so I know we will never be as one again. I believe he was 'The One' and the person I was destined to be with, and now that I have interfered with fate, who knows what will happen.
It is true what they say: "You don't know what you've got 'til it's gone".
