My First True Love
Hello everyone, I am 22 years old, and I recently fell in the love for the first time. I went to study abroad in Spain for 4 months, and it was the best time of my life. I told all my family and friends that I would go to Spain, and fall in love. Back then, I was just saying it as a joke. But it really happened!
In the beginning, we were just friends. I did not even look at him in a romantic way. I didn't even pay attention to the way he looked. Then, we went on a trip together with a few friends, and thats were it all began. We were flirting a lot, and when we got back to school, he invited me over for dinner. At first, I did not go, because I knew he was involved with another girl from the previous semester. Eventually, I gave in. He told me he did not love her, and that it was over. We kept our relationship a secret, but after a while everyone figured it out. Wherever he was, I was there. We were attached at the hip. We finished each others sentences, and read each others minds. It was the most exciting and intense thing I have ever experienced. He was different from all the American guys I have ever been with. He was smart, and strong, and dedicated to things besides sports and drinking. He does not do drugs, does no drink alcohol. He is the most amazing man I have ever met. He did hurt me once in a while, by being a bit disrespectful at times. I think that came from his culture (he is Arabic). I dealt with it though, and eventually I fell in love. I have never ever been in love, and I am so happy I was able to experience it. I understand now, how a person can consumer every part of your life. I wake up in the morning thinking of him, and I go to sleep thinking of him. I think of him at work, and when I run, and when I watch tv.
However, studying abroad had to come to and end. I went home, and he went home. The Atlantic Ocean is separating us. Its crazy, being in love with someone that you know its impossible to be with. Maybe he will move to the US, but probably not. I miss him so much my heart feels like its going to explode. The first time I fell in love, my heart experienced a pain like no other.
