It seems like everyone at some point ends up dating a partner who then all other partners are forever compared to in our minds.

For better or for worse, that’s just what happens. Often times, this person was simply the first real relationship we ever had, and so it became the rubrik. Sometimes the comparison stems from it having been especially bad, or maybe “the one that got away” good.

But on a more shallow realm, we have to admit that sometimes we compare our partners based on looks alone. That’s the kind of thing happening in the mind of the people who wrote these anonymous contributions.
