How do i get over my first love?

I met this guy when i was 16 years old and i haven't felt the way i felt about him for anyone else. I just can't seem to connect with anyone else the way i connected with him. I was young, insecure, and extremely shy around him. I thought i wasn't pretty enough to be his girlfriend or to be seen with him. It's been ten years since i have seen or spoken to this guy that i fell in love with but not one day has went by in the last few years that i haven't thought about him and wondered what our life would have been like if we were still together. I even got married to a guy that reminded me of him and eventhough i know it wasn't him i felt connected with him in some kind of way. I just want to get over it and let it go. You see we were both young when we met and i was very insecure in the relationship which caused a lot of problems but i really did love him and i tried to be the best girlfriend that i knew how to be but when i kept putting myself down and behaving as though i wasn't good enough he eventually got tired of it and we broke up. I just want to know how the story really would have ended if i would have had more self esteem and stood up for myself better than what i did. I wonder if he even remembers me or if he ever loved me? Well, i guess i will never know.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

You never get over your first love. I was 17 when I met mine, and to this day I still love him. Me and him are still very close, and in my situation, we just weren't right for each other. Both of us had depression, and that does not equal anything good.
Maybe you should try to find him on facebook or myspace. If you do, send him a quick message. "OMG. Hi. Do you remember me? It's been so long!" Something that'll open the lines of communication without the emotional strings. And maybe from there, you guys can become friends, or maybe more.
But, dont try to change yourself for someone else. Change yourself for you. Also, don't rush into love. Let it happen. It will. =]
