5 Love Lessons I Learned from My Past (non-)Relationships

Myra, FN's features editor, shares what she has learned about love for the past two decades. By Myra Mortega

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!
