I was 17. He was a new boyfriend. And we were on one of our first dates.
After he finished the meal I couldn’t get through, I looked over at him and blurted out suddenly “I love you”.
More than anything else I remember that feeling of excitement, adventure and mystery.
My first love story, although familiar to many, is completely unique. And after talking to the women in my life about their first loves, I learned that everyone has a different story to tell.
These are a just a few of the millions of first love stories out there, and I’m confident they’ll leave you feeling as sentimental about your own first loves as I am.

The love that came from a meltdown.
“I knew I was in love when I had a full-on meltdown at Optus because I thought he wasn’t replying to my messages – but it was actually Optus screwing my phone up, and he had texted me a million times. Basically I knew because I went crazy.” – Lauren
The love that happened on a plane.
“We were sitting on a plane going to Japan and he said ‘I love you’. Then the lady next to me turned around and said ‘that’s exciting!’”. – Hijiri
The love that cares about your opinion.
“I knew I was in love with my husband when I was talking to him about something and telling him everyone else’s opinions – and he said he didn’t care about other people’s opinions, just mine. (You can go vomit now).” – Avi
