I'm no relationship expert. People don't come to me for advice about love and all its complications. In fact, I'm somewhat of a late bloomer. I had my first brush with infatuation when I was 10 (which can be considered as quite late, when I've been hearing a good deal about my peers' crushes when I was still seven), and I got into my first relationship when I was 19. Of course, I've had a fair share of heartbreaks along the way, like most of us do.
I might have started late in the game, but I was able to cull from my experiences (albeit limited) several love lessons that will stay with me throughout my lifetime. For example, I learned the hard way that I could get easily caught up with my fantasies and emotions, which prevented me from seeing a person for who he really is. On a more happier note, I also learned that it pays to give love a chance, even if you risk you heart getting maimed and trampled over--again.
So get ready for a load of mush, as I share with you my top five picks. Do you have your own love lessons that you would like to share as well? Do leave a comment below and let us know!
