Some of my guesses?
We Miss Being the Center of Attention
|Bella & Edward - Twilight|
Our Complicated Isn't Really So Complicated
|Elena & Stefan - Vampire Diaries|
You Can Only Experience Your First Time Once
|Joey & Pacey - Dawson's Creek|
First kiss. First love. First sexual experience. First heartbreak. Those things only come along once, and because we don't have any experience with them all our senses are running full tilt. We're constantly caught in a state between terrified and exhilarated.
We Still Believe Fairy Tale Endings Are Possible
|Sam & Austin - A Cinderella Story|
Not that we all turn into jaded shrews as we age. . . but after we suffer a broken heart or two, we often guard our emotions a little more carefully. After we lose our first love, we tend look at new romantic partners with the hope that he'll turn out to be our Prince Charming. Whereas the first time we fell in love we were sure it was going to last forever.
Those are just some of the reasons why I think I tend to get swept up so easily in a good YA romance. How about you?
