1. The first love
Let’s talk about the best one first. First romances are unforgettable. No matter how many relationships you have in your life, this one will always hold a special place in your heart. First loves are so innocent and all-consuming! The passion, emotions, and happiness- everything is in excess!
However, most likely this guy has matured into a completely different person from the one you fell in love with and probably wouldn’t fit into your current lifestyle.
2. The type of relationship that was never meant to work out
You genuinely liked this guy, but deep down you felt something wasn’t quite right about his personality.
Your gut told you this relationship wasn’t going to work out, but you decided to ignore it for a while. You also avoided the warnings of your parents and friends.
Eventually, you realized that you didn’t see a future with this person. So, how long did it take for you to come up with a concrete reason to break up and move on?
3. The relationship that couldn’t survive the long-distance phase
The relationship was going pretty well. But then, you both graduated college and moved to different parts of the country with new jobs, and big dreams.
Communicating with him across time zones was becoming very hectic. Moreover, you felt like you needed to experience the adventures life has in store for you before settling down with someone. As a result, both of you decided to go separate ways.
I’m sure you both still catch up from time to time. It makes you fondly remember the great connection you both shared. It probably makes you wonder if you took the right step. Maybe, you wish that you had tried a little harder. Then perhaps the relationship would have worked out fine.
4. The relationship that was as long as the season (or vacation)
No talking about commitment. No future plans. Just a short, fun romance.
Yes, I’m talking about that summer-love you enjoyed during your university days. Or the fling during a backpacking trip. You both knew this type of relationship wasn’t meant to last. It was just about enjoying the moment. It might have been very short. Nevertheless, it was super exciting!
