The One Hook Up That Got Away

I am pretty sure you’ve all wondered about your first love back in high school who will forever hold your shared memory of your first kiss, or maybe that cute blonde you spent the whole summer with at camp. Whoever this old flame is, she is someone who has always left you thinking about what could have been if you decided to stick and hook up with her. Although it is useless to dwell in the past, guys should always know how to look forward and learn from their errors, if that can be considered. Wisdom grows with time, and the right love comes after going through many heartbreaks. Unless Cupid teamed up with Lady Luck and conspired to give you the perfect romantic bliss, it’s possible you’ll need to have a few attempts before you get it right. But what if your first time hook up was the best you ever had? How would you know she was your best possible match? The issue arises when you don’t know if she really is your true love, and you only realize her worth after you let her go. In an attempt to avoid sounding melodramatic, I am trying to paint a picture of how it might feel to have your lady love slip through your fingers like fine powdery sand on a pristine white beach. As much as you want to hold on, it’s simply too late once you’ve decided to let go. Guys, don’t confuse love with passion and attraction for a woman. Being smitten with a woman does not necessarily qualify her as a perfect hook up partner for you. She could actually be a venomous temptress who can sink her sharp teeth deep into your flesh, injecting her deadly poison.


Still, the best way to go is to live in the moment, and not just in love. You should know how to plan ahead, making sure you meet all your needs in the present. However, taking regular breaks from each other is not the right way to test if the relationship is worth keeping. What couples should avoid doing is the yo-yo game with their relationships wherein they break up, realize they can’t live without each other, get back together, and then break up again because they become fully aware they were right the first time around. Just like when milk turns into yogurt, there are relationships that turn sour after a certain period of time. However, the trick here is knowing if it is headed that way. Some love stories end in tragedy, but then again, that’s perfectly normal.
