Gems, unfortunately, there's just no easy, quick fix for getting over your first boyfriend. It's just going to take some time. And depending on how much you loved him, the memories will stay with you for quite a while. BUT...if you have support of good friends and family, that will go a long way in helping you get used to life without him. Get involved in your passions. Is there a club at school you'd like to join? Student counsel? DECCA club or the debate team? Also, concentrate on your studies and what looks interesting. It's not too soon to start planning for next semester. And most of all, remember, the goal isn't really to forget about him or the times you had altogether. The goal is to get to a point where you aren't thinking about him ALL THE TIME, that you've moved on with your life and have a full, enjoyable life without him, and those rare times when he and the good times do cross your mind, you can remember them fondly for what they were, without pain or sadness. And just as an aside, I stand up and applaud you and pat you on the back for being such a smart, strong young lady and not allowing yourself to be pressured into sexual activity you were not ready for. If he had really truly cared for you deeply, he would not have blown you off after your not "going as far" as he wanted you to. Keep sticking to your guns. I think you'll be just fine.
