Well, by "over it" I didn't necessarily mean "forgot about it." What I want to know in general is whether or not the memories still hurt. I mean right now, looking at pictures of her is like looking at the sun. There are certain places that I make conscious efforts to avoid because I know that it would hurt to go there. Does that stuff remain, or are they just memories at this point?
Not that I expect myself to be the same as any one person, but a general consensus couldn't hurt.

I also learnt alot about myself while I was trying to get over her and I can honestly say I'm a stronger person because of it. I've also learnt from my mistakes - I've learnt to stop being OVER protective, which was the reason why she ended it.

Huh? I never get over my ‘first’ (still laughing – Am I even allowed to mention why?) or any of the ones thereafter. Anyway, each ‘love’ has always and will be a part of me no matter how hard I try to move on with the new love(s) in my life. I love them all. God, I could cry! Thanks a lot! Waaahhh!

Wow, crazy. I guess I didn't quite understand the magnitude of what I was getting into when I got into it.
But hey, it's not like I'd go back and change if I could. I mean sure, I'd do things a little differently, but you gotta learn your lessons somehow, right? It's odd to think that there are so many people, so many years later, who still think about that one person.

I'm not over my first and it's been 3 years now. I still love her so much and wish she would feel the same, but she doesn't anymore. It's tough but I try every day just to push her to the back of my mind and not think about it. Sometimes it's hard not to though. I'm sure one day I'll get over it, but it'll take a lot of this -> :w:.

I don't think i'll ever get over my first love, I was with her quite a long time, it didnt help that I saw her everyday too since we live in the same town. I think the pain would have dulled a lot quicker otherwise.
The main thing that I cant get over about it though, is the fact that shes a completely different person now and the one I loved will be forever lost, except in memories.

Maybe its not her that I miss but the feeling of being that close to someone and the fear that I wont be able to get that feeling again in the future.
