How many of you have rekindled an old flame-- reunited with an old crush?

Either an old boyfriend or girlfriend.... or the "one that got away" and you always wondered about? When I got divorced, it was the perfect opportunity to reconnect with the guy I was crazy about in high school. We had always flirted outrageously and the chemistry was amazing... but somehow we never actually got "together" in our youth. It was so much fun to reconnect with him, older and wiser and without any of the inhibitions that slowed things down years ago. I'm just wondering if others have taken the opportunity to rekindle an old flame?

Yes - and we're getting married next year! My highschool boyfriend and I broke up after graduation, and a few other times after that, before finally reunited for good a little over three years ago. Sometimes the timing just isn't there and we both needed to go our seperate ways after highschool to figure out what we really wanted. If we hadn'd done that then things would never have turned out the way they have. When we get married it will be ten years to the day that we first started 'going out'. With a few years in there that don't count, but that's ok!

Yes, I got together with my highschool boyfriend again in college. It was really great for awhile, but I wasn't. He had a son from a previous relationship and I just wasn't ready for the responsibility. He was my bestfriend, so it was really sad that I acted so immature. I just stopped going to his house and calling because I was too much of a chicken to tell the truth. I still regret my actions to this day and have never seen him since even though I still know where he lives. I could never talk to him because I know that he will never forgive me.

yes ... i dated a guy for about a year. we then broke up for awhile and then got back together and eventually got married. After a couple of years of marriage, we had a son together. When my son was 7 months old, he decided he couldn't handle the responsibility and left. We're now divorced and I've never heard from him since he left.
