Because if it was real, it should have worked. You would have sacrificed something to make it work because love is sacrifice. You would have found ways for it to work. Maybe you just wanted a better future more (i.e. going to a different college too far) or you wanted to pursue something you want more (i.e. becoming a musician).
And that "we were just too young"? Did age really matter? Maybe you weren't old/mature enough to understand what love is. Or too young to handle it?
What about "I love her/him, it was just the wrong time and place"? I heard that that is just an excuse. Because you would have made it work. You wouldn't have been able to leave. I think that if you really love someone, either anything else doesn't matter as much (I mean there had been people who gave up their dreams to get a real job that will provide for their family) or you'd be willing to go through that experience or pursue your dreams with them. Not see them as the other option.
I guess in order to love, they had to find out who they really are first. Or maybe it was real. People have just learn to love again. And right.
But when you're young, you only know so much. People say that you should go and explore out there and find out who you really are. Time changes people. So things will change. (btw, you know how in marriage they say for better or worse, what if your spouse changed for the worse, would you still stay with them?) I guess what I'm saying is, no matter which one you pick (your lover or your dreams, if you're going to pick one), make sure you're not going to blame anybody for it.
Is there really such a thing as that "first love"?
