You’ve probably heard people talking about their first love.

It leaves a real mark on your life!

Your first real relationship is jam packed with lessons and learnings and magical moments, and if it doesn’t last, it’s where you’ll pick up a lot of the knowledge that you take forward into other relationships.

Want to check if you’ve missed any?

Here are the things that you’ll learn from your first serious relationship.



When you’re first in a relationship, you want to tell everyone.

It’s not unusual for you to become a bit like a groupie – you’ll prioritise things so that you can spend more time with your partner, your social media will become a shrine to them, and you’ll talk about them to anyone that will listen.

But when it ends, you can often regret letting so many people in.

Sometimes it’s nicer to have things just between the two of you – even when it’s not about breaking up, just about having some sweet moments together.

Privacy isn’t negative.
