All great love stories comes with memorable characters. The benchmark of a great lover has always been Romeo. And now, I would like to share another love story; my love stories.
Up till now, I had 3 great loves. My first love was a boy who couldn’t care less about anything other than himself. My second love was a boy who was gentle and caring and one of the most romantic person I’ve ever met. My third love is to the man who is now the father of my beautiful children.
My first love was like the wind. He was unpredictable, never wanted to admit anything, so full of himself… But I loved him. I adored his confidence and discipline. He was not good looking but his personality attracts me like a magnet. Ask any of my friends and they could easily tell you that he was one arrogant person. Yet, there were moments… Moments where I could feel my heart just burst with fireworks. With him, action speaks louder than words. After he left for his studies, he ended our relationship with a huge bang. I was hurt. It was painful.
The second story comes out like a Nicholas Spark’s novel. I have known him since we were 12. I have been eying him since I was 12. We only got together when we were 22. We share the same sentiments towards life. We even love the same TV shows! He was my Ross and I could’ve been his Rachel. Unfortunately, the fairy tale ended as soon as it begun. I was the villain in this story. I broke his heart when I told him I couldn’t go on with the long distance relationship. It was a test. A test to see if he would fight back to keep the relationship. A test to see if he goes against his nature to say ‘no’ to me. He failed. I broke my own heart this time.
When I met Abu, I never thought I would end up marrying him. He is the middle character of both previous boys. He is generous but arrogant. He is disciplined but gentle as well. He is just perfect.
The point of the story is that some people have all the luck marrying their first love, and some people had to endure heartbreaks to find happiness. I never regret falling in and out of love. It was a privilege to go through the experience with such adverse personalities. I did not end up with my Ross. I married my Mr Darcy instead.
