Young love isn't the best thing in the world; it’s the freshness that accompanies it that so many of us cling to. Those first experiences that you can never get back. The first love. The first heartbreak. No matter whom they are or how you feel about them, they are always in the back of your mind, and they will stay there until you find the real thing. You aren't clinging to the past, it's just following you on with your journey until you are ready to let go and finally grow up and live your life.
So don't forget, or regret young love: remember it until Time has played its hand, and you have moved on to find that one person who understands your dreams, your lies, your faults, and your secrets.
When you do that, you will want for nothing.
