If you have an amazing love story to tell, or if you want to track down your first love, even if it’s just to say hello, then Motive TV in Dublin wants to talk to you for their new TV series for Virgin Media.

In an email, Yvonne Kinsella, a senior producer with Motive Television in Dublin, said: “I am hoping that we find at least one amazing story from someone in the US who moved from Ireland leaving behind their first love or who had an Irish love who left the States to love home.”

“We would love to find someone with an amazing story that we could help track down the first love of their life, the one that got away!”

Have you ever thought about your first love, the one who gave you butterflies in your stomach for the first time? Did you ever wonder how they are doing now?

Have you ever thought of meeting them again, but don’t know where to start looking?

So many people have lost out on love through situations they had little or no control over. Are you one of them? Did they or you, have to move abroad and you lost contact, or was it just that you never told them how you felt and would love the chance to do that now?

It could be that you were in another relationship, which is now over, but you could never forget him/her. Did you enter a religious order and never have the chance to follow your heart?

Maybe your family disapproved of your love interest back in the day. Were they from a different background to yours, or was there a big age difference? Was it that you were in a same-sex relationship and you had to keep it secret? Or maybe you weren’t aware of your sexuality yet and you felt you couldn’t express your feelings at the time.
