Do you believe in life after (first) love?

My first boyfriend/first love and I recently broke up after nearly four years together. I know this was the right decision, but I feel like I'll never feel this way about anyone else ever again. I realize that sounds dramatic, silly, and naive, but I'd really like to hear from the perspective of someone who's been through it that, yes, life does go on (and maybe get better, in a different way) after a first love.

Also, is it normal to freak out and feel like I'm going to be alone for the rest of my life (and like I'll never connect with anyone else like I did with him) after this type of breakup, even though I'm only 21?
Is it also normal to feel guilt about the relationship's end? What's the best way to deal with this?
Thanks so much.
