“We all have the potential to fall in love a thousand times in

our lifetime. It’s easy. The first girl I ever loved was someone

I knew in sixth grade. Her name was Missy; we talked about

horses. The last girl I love will be someone I haven’t even met

yet, probably. They all count. But there are certain people

you love who do something else; they define how you classify

what love is supposed to feel like. These are the most important

people in your life, and you’ll meet maybe four or five of these

people over the span of 80 years. But there’s still one more

tier to all this; there is always one person you love who becomes

that definition. It usually happens retrospectively, but it happens

eventually. This is the person who unknowingly sets the template

for what you will always love aboutother people, even if some

of these lovable qualities are self-destructive and unreasonable.

The person who defines your understanding of love is not

inherently different than anyone else, and they’re often just the

person you happen to meet the first time you really, really, want

to love someone. But that person still wins. They win, and

you lose. Because for the rest of your life, they will control

how you feel about everyone else.”
