The Power of First Love

Early romantic experiences can leave a lasting imprint on who we are—and who we fall for.

Relationships

Love is the most profound emotion known to human beings. For most people, romantic relationships are the most meaningful element in their lives. But the ability to have a healthy, loving relationship is not innate. Almost all of us have experienced a failed relationship, and most of us have to work consciously to master the skills necessary to make them flourish.

While it can take adults time to regain psychological equilibrium, whether or not children ever recover a stable perspective continues to be debated.
