A Journey Through Time

Tonight I took an unexpected trip back in time. I got a call from my 'sister'. She's my oldest and dearest friend from grade school. She called to tell me that she had been "friended" on Facebook by a guy that we had gone to school with. She had actually forgotten that he and I had "dated" when we were 12! We were in fact, first girlfriend/ boyfriends for each other. He was a few months younger than me, so when I went off to high school, he was still in junior high school. It was our undoing. Then it seemed to make a big difference, today not at all.

We both had left the area years ago and went our separate ways. I've run into his sister and mom a few times since I moved back in 1994. So I knew he had moved back also but I hadn't seen him. At one time his mom was teasing me that she was going to get us back together after all these years since she had always wanted me for a daughter in law! But at that time he had a live in girlfriend so I never pressed for a "reunion".

When sis called me tonight she said they had spoken earlier today and that she knew he had checked out my profile and been asking about me. So I logged in and sure enough he's sent me a friend request. I accepted it and checked out his profile. Wow, the past 31 years have been VERY VERY good to him!!! Not thirty seconds go by and he's sending me messages as well. We wound up talking for over an hour! We never brought up the past, merely caught up as two old friends that haven't seen each other in a very long time. But still the memories came rushing back! He let me know quite early in the conversation that he was single now and asked nearly immediately if I was single and if so if I was seeing anyone. We both agreed that "the one" is very elusive and hard to find. Several times in the conversation he asked me what I enjoy doing for fun these days and finally asked what I had planned for tonight. I got the feeling that he wanted to ask me out, but just wasn't quite sure how to go about it. We both finally made our excuses and logged out.

So now I'm sitting here wondering if the memories are flooding him like they are me. Our 'dates'. My mother driving a carload of us to the movies on Friday nights. Him asking her permission to kiss me goodnight! I blushed all the way down to my toes when she told him "yes, you can kiss her, but you better hurry cos your mother is standing on your porch waiting for you too!" But even with the embarrassment of the moment, the kiss was sweet, tender and of all the kisses I've had in my life, I've never forgotten it.

Yeah I kind of got "it handed to me" by a dear friend on here later last night for "letting him get away"............(you know who you are!) so I'm gonna play it by ear, see what happens. I've got a feeling I'll see him pretty soon!

Aw girl...don't let it slip away. At least get together and you'll so enjoy remembering old times and catching up on each other's lives.

If you remember, my old boyfriend and I got together after 50 yrs. and although he is married...happily....we so enjoyed talking and reminiscing. We still have feelings for each other but in a good way, you know, a bond of long ago times. If he wasn't married, who knows...

Even in you and your old beau can't bond in a serious relationship, you can be dear, dear lasting friends. Like I said....don't let this opportunity slip away.

Good luck sweet lady...
