Whatever happened to your childhood sweetheart?

Not only your childhood sweetheart, but your high school or college beau (or belle)? Do you ever wonder what has happened to the past loves of your life? Assuming it ended amicably, you may wonder what these people are doing now. They may have married, had kids, maybe they are grandparents. Did they move away? Where are they now? Life is funny, the way people go in and out of our lives. Have you ever typed the name of someone from your past into Google, or into an online telephone directory to see if you could find out what they are doing and where they are? I'm not talking about stalking, just being curious in a friendly way. I wouldn't want any of you to get arrested... LOL.

My childhood sweetheart is alive in well back where we grew up. I talk to him a few times a week actually. He was my first love and we split because he moved away. Here we sit 16 years later and we're still friends. My highschool sweety and I lost contact last summer, and up until yesterday when I got a message from MSN asking permission for him to add me to his messenger I had no clue what happened to him. Him and I were actually gonna get married at one time, but he cheated and we went out seperate ways. He's still been on of my best friends and has been there for me when life has thrown some crazy curve balls at me. I think maybe he was in jail over this last year which is why we lost contact.

Actually we still keep in touch - over 30 years on! We've both been married and dicorced, both gone on to ive with other partners, and now live at opposite ends of the country, but we still exchange \Birthday Cards etc, and if ever he is back down in London we meet up for dinner or a drink. We grew apart just because we were both too young to settle down, but we still have a lot of the things in common that drew each other together in the first place - same taste in music, similar sense of humour etc - so why lose touch completely?

Interesting point of view. I have a problem with forgiveness. It's so easy to say I forgive but yet so hard to really feel that I do.

Well, i don't have much wondering to do, for i never had a high school or college sweetheart. Didn't even go on a single date, all through highschool... But i did have a grade school sweetheart...his name was Dino, and we used to play house together...i was the mommy, he was the daddy, then in the middle of the school year, his parents decided to move! I was heart broken, and never heard of him or saw him ever again...

I had a kindergarten boyfriend named Andy. We always spent recess together. I remember going to his birthday party and he came to my house for supper one day. He said, "This is very good, Mrs. B," to my mother, "but my mom's spaghetti is better." Oh to be honest and open like a five year old...

in my elementary days, i have a crush on someone....i really liked him a lot, we were good friends, best friends...until graduation day came. we got separated without communication. i wondered about him ,, his whereabouts, what became of him, then after so many many years, after a number of boyfriends, .. i saw him or he saw me. he came up tome, and i cannot recognize him no more. he met an accident. he still looks good though. the feelings were gone that moment i mean i felt sympathy instead. worst, he came to our house one day and i felt the interest he has for me more than friendship. i wish we never met again. he must have seen that look in my eyes. he never returned. and the friendship, it was gone also. why dant people be good friends after a relationship...for the sake of the term " civil "

It's hard to get to that stage where you only love someone as a friend, or that they feel that way about you. I'm sorry for you that it turned out that way this time, but there will be others. Life does go on.

I have thought about my ex boyfriends a time or two. I have never seen most of them again, but it has crossed my mind to know how they are doing and how their life is since we have last seen each other. But, most often the feeling passes and I don't worry about it anymore. Sometimes it is best that way.

If you are most comfortable that way, then that is a good choice for you.

I just recently got in touch with an old highschool boyfriend (on myspace). Even though the break up was bad and there were a lot of hard feelings we both seem to have gotten past it all and don't even talk about that. It is like we are just old friends which is great. I know his wife (we all went to the same school) and it is great to see how he is doing and to see his kids and everything.

With that discussion, you make me wanna find out about a guy that I had a crush on it and that was a very good friend of mine. I'm happy that he doesnt have a common family name, so what I found I'M almost sure it's him. He's still at school and working on things with theater. Didn't find much. The other guy I ha da very big crush on it, I know that 5-6 years ago he was found burned in is car. But I wasnt surprise. I knew he was doing wrong thing.

My high school sweetheart, before my hubby came along, is still one of my closest friends. We did end badly, he wanted me to quit high school and move away with him, he was extremely in love and could not wait. I was in love with him, but not enough to throw away my education. I explained this to him, and asked him to stay with me, but he ended up leaving the state and we lost contact for 7 years. Now we have been back in contact for 13 years and we go out together when he is back in Missouri. I am glad that we can still have a close friendship.

Let's see, I married and divorced my high school sweetheart. I know exactly what he is doing because he lives right next door to my parents! Luckily we are still friends since he lives in such close proximity to my family. He is also the father of my 3 oldest children.

It's good you can still have a civil relationship with him. That's not always easy with your ex.

I don't have a childhood sweetheart but I have a childhood crush. When we were in high school he courted me but I did not fall for him coz I dont want to go into a boy=girl relationship that time, even when I went to college. When I go to our home province I could see him with his grown up sons. The feeling of excitement when I see him before when he was my crush isn't there anymore. I know he has already grandkids now. Sometimes I wonder and think... what if he was the one who became my hubby...what would be my life... will I be happy?

I'm not real sure. My schooling situation changed and she moved away due to family issues. Sad part is, that was the best love I've ever had.
