44 Years on and my old boyfriend is visiting
March 24, 2017 5:30pm CST
This feels so odd. Recently I met a man I might have married when I was 17 on Facebook. We started going out when I was about 15. I know he wanted ti get engaged and I wanted to live with him, but he wouldn't! He is driving over to see me tomorrow Bless him. He even has old photos of us! We both married other people and lost touch when I moved out of London at 19. I do not really know whether to be excited or scared or what. This will be the second time in my life a boyfriend from the past turned up. The last it was a boy I went out with when I was 10 who emigrated to Australia. He turned up on my parents doorstep when I was in my 20's and had just got engaged. I remember that one asking if I still had a silver locket he gave me. I didn't. G.who is coming romorrow was my first serious love. I keep remembering all this stuff from when we were 15 I had forgottten. Like him climbing onto the veranda of the YWCA when it was past curfew. I left home at 15 and lived there for a while. Now my head is full of love beads thar broke and Fender Stratacasters in shop windows and a loud band that was pretty awful in a church hall. He says my Dad chased him out of the house demanding he never darken the doors again. Neither of us can remember why!

It is always interesting to see our first love. 45 years ago I met my first love. I last saw him when I was a young mother at 21. That was 1976. Then I saw him again in 2011 at my mother's memorial. I did not recognize him.

@JudyEv No definitely no romance. I think just friendship. Our politics are different and he likes the Church of England and evensong, while I am pentecostal All sorts of changes had taken place to the young man I went out with.

Sounds pretty heart breaking. But I guess rather than becoming scared you can enjoy the moment which you are about to have, Or there might be a time in your life again when you will feel sorry for missing this moments. In life never do something for which you could feel sorry at any point of time. Be happy
