It’s an intriguing question, isn’t it? Do guys ever really forget their first love? And if they do, what happens that makes them forget? Does time play a factor? Or is it just that they meet someone new and suddenly their first love is forgotten?
Unfortunately, there’s no one right answer to this question. Maybe for some guys they never forget their first love. But for others, maybe time does play a part and they eventually move on. It’s hard to say for sure.
But one thing is for certain, it’s an intriguing question worth pondering. So go ahead and read on for more answers. Who knows, maybe you’ll find the answer you’re looking for.
When do guys go back to their first love?
Almost everyone has a first love, that one special person who you just can’t forget. For guys, the experience of falling in love for the first time is often intense and overwhelming. It can be all-consuming, making it hard to focus on anything else.
Of course, there’s no set age for when guys fall in love for the first time. It could happen when they’re teenagers or it could happen later in life. But one thing is for sure; falling in love is an unforgettable experience.
First loves are special because they are often the most intense and passionate. They are also new and exciting, full of potential and promise. No matter when a guy falls in love for the first time, it’s sure to be a memorable experience. But when and under what conditions does a man remember and go back to his first love later in life?
1- It was very passionate and special:
Guys only remember their first love if they truly loved that person and if that love was special and passionate. As opposed to some little fling they had in high school that they look back on fondly, the first love should’ve been more if there’s a chance they’ll go back looking for it.
It must’ve been the one of a type, all-consuming love that they’ll never forget no matter how much time passes. The love that made them realize what real love actually is. The kind of love most people only dream of having. That’s the only kind of love guys ever really fall for and when they do, it changes them forever.
They become more open, more loving, and more committed because they know what it feels like to be fully and completely mesmerized by that one person. And once you’ve experienced that kind of love, they will always want to try and find it again.
So if you’re wondering whether your first love will ever come back into your life, the answer may depend on whether he was really in love with you or just infatuated.
2- The girl they fell in love with will still be their type years later:
Most guys have a “type” that they are attracted to and if they see their first love years later and she is still their type, they may feel drawn to her again. So two clear conditions for this to happen are: either for the guy to still have the same type years later, or for the girl to have only gotten better both looks-wise and personality-wise.
If the girl took care of herself and looks fitter, healthier, happier, more attractive and more years down the line then it’s possible that the guy that was her first love will get fully intrigued when he sees her again.
In addition, as explained before; if a guy’s taste in women hasn’t changed over the years, he may also feel attracted to his first love again, when he sees her if she didn’t change or evolved much. In this can he can even fall in love all over again with the same person. If she looks similar to the types of women he is currently attracted to, it could be good enough to around his curiosity again.
Finally, when a guy has fond memories of his first love, he may be drawn to her again because he remembers her in a positive light and hopes to rekindle those positive feelings.
3- Nobody could compare or come close to matching her:
It’s funny how guys sometimes seem to go back to their first love, no matter how we try to look at it. In the end, it’s not sure if it’s because they’re nostalgic for the good old days or if they just can’t seem to let go of what they had.
Either way, it seems to happen more under one condition: if nobody could compare. If all their relationships after their first love failed then there’s probably a sign that they were meant to be, right? Well at least, that’s how they could perceive it.
In any case, it’s true though that they would always find some reason to go back to their first love if they thought not a single person could match the passion and emotional aspect of that specific relationship.
Sometimes, they would even try to rekindle the relationship, only to realize that it was better left in the past. It’s almost as if they’re trying to recapture something that they may be never able to get back. But. who’s to stop them. or even blame them for trying?
In what situation do guys easily move on from their first love?
For most guys, their first love is only a passing fling anyway and in that case, they’d never go back to them. They might think they were in love at the time, but it’s usually just infatuation. Once they meet someone else that they’re attracted to, they quickly move on.
However, there are some guys who do fall in love with their first girlfriend deeply and if the conditions discussed above apply then it may be possible for them to find their way back to that person.
First love is true to some extent but for most guys, it’s just a physical attraction and an embarrassing experience; where they were very inexperienced. If the guy is young when he meets his first love, he might not be ready for a serious relationship and he may not even want to go back to that person years later when he’s wiser. That’s because he’ll feel that the girl has a bad image or idea of him as she only ever dealt with a younger and immature version of himself.
As time passes, a guy might start seeing his first love as more of a sister than a girlfriend or a potential partner. Or he might meet someone else who he’s more compatible with and makes him forget all about it. Either way, it’s not unusual for a guy to move on from his first love and never go back.
