First Love is a short story by Samuel Beckett, written in 1946 and first published in 1973.

The narrator tells of his discovery by a prostitute on a park bench (where he slept after becoming homeless), and the cruel, even revolting, sexual relationship that develops out of this.

A stage version was performed by Ralph Fiennes at the Sydney Festival in 2007.
