    Do you ever really stop loving someone?

    I'm at my parents house over my winter break, and I was going through some of my old stuff... Well I came across some pictures of the first person I loved, and... well, I just felt everything again. Part of it could be that he's now dating the person I was best friends with in high school (who is an awful person to her very core), and part of it could be that the only other boyfriend I've had since him was an emotionally abusive and highly unstable alcoholic. I'm just wondering what you guys think about this... Do you think you ever really stop loving someone if you truly loved them? Or does that love just take a different form?

    Also, sorry I got a little ranty about my own personal situation. Just trying to explain how I came to thinking about this.

    Nah, I love everyone. And then when I fall in love with someone that feeling for them is always at least an undertone.

    no I can't say that I have either...I feel as though the reason is that I don't give my love away very easily to others. I don't mean that I don't care about them, but its just two different things to me. So when I do actually love somebody I love them whole heartedly and I don't feel like thats a kind of bond that can easily be broken

    Well, truth is that you will never ever ever forget the first person that you were in love with.
    And if it was true love, oh well, that person is gonna be inside your heart till death do you apart.
    The fire of true love burns the brightest, but the brightest flame also leaves the deepest scars.

    but hopefully you're all smiles now

    I think you can. But you never stop caring about them and wondering "what if".

    Yep, that's the same with me and this person. We always said that no matter what happened we'd still love each other.

    Once we (generalised we) love it's hard to stop feeling that way, it can change but it never really goes. People have continued loving others who have done horrible, gruesome things, things that have others believing that person must be as sick as the one they love for still loving them, but it's not exactly something you can turn on and off. You can mask it, attempt to hide it, smother it until you think it's dwindled out, but stopping it? No.

    I half-joke that I fall in love with everyone I meet, perhaps not the romantic everlasting love others are describing, but still love. I give them a little piece of myself and it's hard for me to stop loving them. Even when they've moved on, fallen out of touch, or say things that cut me to the core I still love them. All the hurt and cursing in the world can't turn back time and allow me to simply not give them a piece of my heart, even if I could I wouldn't know how. It does change, it stops hurting and they become a fond memory, a shadow of someone I once knew that reminds me of how people who flitter into our lives can change us for the better. Well, sometimes for the worst, but something positive can still be gained from it.


    What was the question again?

    Oh. Actually I think the feelings can change depending on the relationship and who comes into your life after them, but it can be complex, messy and time consuming depending on how deep you plunged.
