1955 June 26 Elvis was dating June Juanico who was the only girl his mother ever approved of.
Elvis spotted the pretty starry-eyed 17 year old at one of his shows during intermission.
She shared a three year passionate relationship with Elvis at the beginning of his career.
But Elvis and June could only keep in close contact by phone for the last 5 months of their relationship while he was on tour.
Elvis`s next steady girlfriend was Anita Wood. A pretty blonde several years older than Elvis, was to be `the girl Elvis left behind` when he was drafted and sent overseas.
Anita describes her first date.... "I remember the lounge room was full of teddy bears.... All of a sudden Elvis said, `I want to show you my bedroom` and so we went upstairs and he started to kiss me.
Now, this was the first date and his hands started to move were I thought they shouldn`t so I said, `I think I need to go home now.`
He acted real nice, we went down stairs and he took me home. And the second date? The second date was a couple of nights later and we went up to Graceland again.
...You know Elvis still had an old truck and we`d get in it and he would drive me down to Lauderdale Courts to show me where he used to live.
He`d show me around Memphis and nobody would ever bother us because they really didn`t recognise him in that truck. We just went back to his house, we watched television, ate and had a good time, then Elvis took me home.
Elvis and I saw each other a lot and after about two months we were on a date and after he took me home we stood on the porch and he said, `Little, I think I`m falling in love with you.` He was loving, kind and he made me laugh." — Anita Wood
Anita was an Elvis Presley girlfriend for six years.
"Anita had a crazy sense of humour just like Elvis. She was just a wonderful lady and we all loved her very much.
We were all disappointed when it didn`t work out` — Sonny West.Above: extract from his letter to Anita, who he called "Little"
An Elvis Presley girlfriend Yvonne Lime was also Elvis`s co-star in Loving You, and also stayed as a guest at Graceland. The gossip columns started marriage rumors.
Margit Buergin a beautiful seventeen year old girlfriend that Elvis went sightseeing with while in Germany. Elvis also dated Vera Tchechowa, a young film actress in Berlin.
Priscilla Beaulieu was not quite 15 years old when she was introduced to Elvis. He couldn`t take his eyes off her and found her entrancingly beautiful.
They saw each other for four or five months in Germany before Elvis was discharged from the Army.
Incredibly, in early 1961 Elvis managed to talk Priscilla's mother and step-father into allowing the underaged girl to live with him at Graceland — it was said, under the supervision of Vernon and Davada. Elvis would call her `Cilla.`The press went along with the spin Colonel Parker put on the story, and few seemed to care the King of Rock and Roll was sharing his house with a teenaged girlfriend.

1964 Elvis and Ann-Margaret were romantically linked on and off the set when they made ``Viva Las Vegas'' together. They instinctively knew each other's moves.
They would slither around his living room like cats, with Elvis growling, ``You got me running,'' and Ann-Margret responding, ``You got me hidin.' ''
At the time Priscilla was living at Graceland, but could do no more than follow the courtship in the newspapers.
Ann-Margret also has described a Vegas encounter with Presley -- but in her case, she says, he was the one filled with longing. He phoned her after she opened a show in 1972 to say he was lonely and to ask if he could spend the night.Married by then to Roger Smith, Ann-Margret says she told him, ``You know I can't.''
While it's generally thought that they had a hot and heavy romance during the filming, which gives ``Viva Las Vegas'' its oomph, Ann-Margret is coy about whether they ever were intimate.
She acknowledges that he had a round pink bed made for her because he knew she loved pink, but won't say if they spent any time in it.
``What we had was very strong and real intense. I knew him very, very well. We were so much alike,'' she told The Chronicle three years ago when her autobiography, ``Ann-Margret: My Story,'' came out with a chapter devoted to Elvis.
Elvis and Ann-Margaret remained friends for a life time.

So many women, famous and not, have been linked to Presley that you wonder how he found time to have a career.
Cybill Shepherd has confirmed in interviews that she dated him in 1972, when his marriage to Priscilla was in its final stage.
A friend who knew Shepherd from Memphis called and said the singer wanted to meet her and invited her to a private screening.
When the movie started, everyone on one side of her slid down a seat and Presley, dressed all in white, plopped down next to her.
"He was gorgeous then, and I didn't look bad either," she has recalled.
Other celebrities linked with Presley include Natalie Wood, Connie Stevens, Monique Van Vooren and Nancy Sinatra, who was rumored to be seeing him during his wife's pregnancy.

As her campy persona, Elvira, she has introduced horror movies on TV and starred in a feature film, "Elvira, Mistress of the Dark."

A tribute to the Presley courtship and marriage.
October 9, 1973
Elvis and Priscilla Presley divorce in Santa Monica, California.
(Memphis Mafia member) Joe Esposito's reply to the question — DID PRISCILLA HAVE A ROUGH TIME BEING MARRIED TO ELVIS?
"Yes. It was not as easy job being married to Elvis. Elvis was not a one-woman person — he loved all women and could never be loyal to just one. It must of been rough being Elvis' wife... And it must be ever tougher being his widow. I believe had Elvis lived, Priscilla and he would have got back together. Elvis always said she was the only woman he truly loved. And the one woman that understood him."
