Breakin' up is hard to do.

Princess is 16.
She and her boyfriend have
been a couple for 11 months.

They have "broken up".
She is very sad.

Young love and heartbreak
often go hand in hand,
don't they?

Do you remember
your first heartbreak?
I remember mine.

His name was Robert.
He broke my heart.
Thankfully, a 14 yr old's heart
mends completely
with a little time.

What do you remember
about your first heartbreak?

Please tell Princess that although it hurts now, every single day it will become easier and finally, she'll realize that there's someone else that God has in store for her on this adventure.

My first teen breakup was tough because my boyfriend decided he wanted to be with my twin sister instead. I didn't speak to my twin for a week. After that, she broke up with him and we both saw the no good guy that he was.

Aww, your poor Princess. First loves, and first heartbreaks, are so hard. My first heartbreak wasn't until I was in college but I still remember how much it hurt.

My philosophy about it is that a chocolate milkshake makes everything better!

I remember mine...we dated for about six months and he just decided he wanted to get back together with his old girlfriend (I was 16 he was 17). Totally broke my heart but I tried very hard to remain his friend. Then a few weeks later he came back to me and told me that he wanted me and no one else. He has been my husband for 22 years now!

I was just thinking about this as I have a 16 year old son with a girlfriend for the first time. I just know the heartache is coming, and it makes me so sad. I know how bad it hurts and I don't want him to hurt. Ah the joys of parenthood!!

I remember lots of unreciprocated love when I was young. But my first heartache was when I was 17; and then there was an intense heartbreak (couldn't eat or sleep) when I was 20. It was awful!

It hurts, especially after 11 months. She will get over it, of course, and move on to better. But it sure hurts now!


I do remember mine....it hurt for what seemed like forever...and then there were bigger and better things. Give Princess a hug for me.

My first love broke my heart at 14 and 8 years later married me. That'll teach him. LOL

First of all I am sorry for your daughter -that is hard to go through.

I was 16 when my parents moved. I loved Daryl. I was the one who had to leave. Thought I'd die.

I didn't, but it was still painful.

Oh, poor Princess. Those young broken hearts are really hard. Don't you just wish you could still kiss it and make things better.
I remember a couple of young heartbreaks and they are no fun!

Well, mine never lasted 11 months. More like a few weeks. But I was devastated. Put on a brave face, but I was DEVASTATED. We all go through it, but it's much harder to see our kids go through it. Makes me want to punch someone.

I always wanted to warn my boys that heartache was part of growing up...but I didn't, they went through it more than once..and they survived. I can remember when it happened to me as a teen...times I would not want to repeat! But I'm glad I was able to realize it would be ok..and it was!

Munir said...

We all survived our first hear break, she will too.
First love is first love though!

Sure, I remember. I was 14. He was 17. We only dated a couple of months. My BFF would go talk to him for me. ( You know how that works) Of course they started dating. I never got mad at her though. I don't know where I found that maturity. They dated all through H.S. and got married and are still marrried.

So, it was a great romantic story....just not mine.

It hurts but time does heal. I remember getting a broken heart in high school. His name was John and he ended up living in a tepee! I am so grateful I have the sweet hubby I have! Listen to Simone. she recently married her soulmate! Life can be so good! I have not forgotten you. Our phamily has been crazy and if it is not one thing it is another. I am going to get that teapot over to you and surprise you! I need to add a little something to it! Ha Ha! It is a surprise for you. I am having a C R A Z Y week! Love to you and Princess, life is so mean sometimes. Anne

Aww poor Princess I feel so sorry for her. It is so hard being a teenager I think!
My eldest two boys are 16 and 14 and neither have had any real relationships yet (you know other than the ones that seem to last an entire lunchtime lol).

My first break up was traumatic in my eyes, I remember lots of tears and not wanting to ever lay eyes on him again,,,,this lasted a while but life moves on and there are plenty of fish in the sea as they say.

I wish her well.

BTW I have just discovered your blog and am enjoying having a sticky beak around, might just go grab a coffee and continue exploring lol.

Unknown said...

That is hard. Just one more reason I wouldn't want to be a teenager again. Give her a big hug.

My 17 year old daughter broke it off with her first boyfriend, and then her 2nd boyfriend and she just agreed to go separate ways.

She decided that for now, she likes being thought of as "herself" instead of "him and her" all the time.

That'll change, but for now I'm enjoying it.

I think I hurt more for OS when he had his first heartbreak than I did when I had mine!
