    The term "first" implies plural or multiple events or objects. This would disqualify exclusivity. As this pertains to love it would not be logical to have a first and true love being the same thing. First indicates the beginning of several and true indicates the end.


    Peace....

    It was true for me, certainly not for everyone.

    Like brutha Pan......

    My first love WAS a true love.
    I truly loved that girl, but my love faded and I moved on.

    We carry the same emotions in adulthood as we did in our youth; they just get more complex, intense, and usually we're better able to express them....but they're still the same.

    Even little children can fall in love.
    Even if for the silliest of reasons, it's still love.

    Since it is your first love, is it love or just infactuation?
    My first true love was at 18.
    My first for everything so maybe it wasn't love
    Did it last? No! Could it have? maybe
    Anything is possible

    I think that that statement is sorta true.
    I met my first love at 14 but I met a true love at 19.

    Things happen

    Question.....

    Obviously there can be only one "First Love" but can there be multiple "True Loves"?
