1 is the loneliest number

Your first love isn't always the first person you kiss, or the first person you date. Your first love is the person you will always compare everyone to. The person that you will never truly get over, even when you've convinced yourself you've moved on....”

A friend of mine posted that on Facebook today. Is it true?

For me, it is. Every single time I meet someone, I compare them. I don’t mean to do it, and I don’t want to do it, but I do. It’s just automatic. I can’t imagine how horrible it is for the guy, knowing that by the look on my face, I’m comparing him to another in the back of my mind.

It’s a true statement that you need to be fully over someone before you can move on. I totally get it. RM#1 reminds me often. This is the exact reason I haven’t jumped into another relationship. Although it’s been eight months, I’m just not ready. Not ready to replace the one I don’t want to forget. Not ready to come up with pet names for someone else. Not ready to fully give myself to someone that might not appreciate or deserve it. But one day…. 

In the meantime, I enjoy single life, I hang out with cool people, and I think about what will happen, instead of what might have been.

So does the statement above stand true for you?

Happy Friday.
