Who Was Your First Love? – Vanessa Tai

First love is an exhilarating experience. Everything feels new and exciting, and you’re unfettered by the baggage of past relationships. While not all of us still keep in touch with with our first love, it’s always fun to reminisce about the first time we fell in love.

While I’ve had crushes on like, I don’t know, a million guys before, somehow falling for X felt different. He was someone I got to know through a school camp, and I was immediately taken in by his sleepy eyes and dimples (these two physical features are my absolute kryptonite). One thing led to another, and we soon found ourselves chatting on the phone every day. Thinking back, it was fairly chaste – we rarely went out on official “dates” and if we did, our friends would be there too. Even though we’re no longer in contact with each other, I still hold on to some fond memories. For example, how we would exchange presents via our friends because we were too shy to do it face-to-face, or the time he called me from the airport before he left on an extended overseas trip.

Of course, the story of my first love is not as exciting as those in the movies!


Endless Love is a new romance drama starring Alex Pettyfer (last seen in The Butler) and Gabriella Wilde (last seen in Carrie). Wilde plays Jade Butterfield, a privileged and bookish high school student who falls in love with David Axelrod, a charming young man with a troubled background. David is Jade’s first love, and she’s so enraptured by him that she’s willing to forgo everything, including her parents’ approval. However, there’s something about David that makes Jade’s father uneasy, so he sets out to uncover more about David’s past …

We have five pairs of tickets to the Endless Love premiere to give away!
