Old Flames from Long Ago

This week I'll be meeting up with my first boyfriend who I have not seen nor talked to (except recently) in about 31 years.* It's only because of the internet and some arbitrary remark on someone else's Facebook page that we started having a "conversation" and discovered although we live worlds apart (I moved from the US 24 years ago) we have a lot in common and have led very similar lives. It has been great fun talking with him and finding out I was his first love in that cupidy way- awwww!

So, what am I expecting when I finally figure out who he is at the airport? Nothing, except a good time (laughs), frequent flyer miles and to be able to buy some "Crest" toothpaste. Oh, and a valid reason to hug any man 6'3'' I see there- who cares if I get it wrong?

What about you? What happened when you met with someone that has reappeared?

*we all get older and you will too if you are laughing at the time span.

Re: Old Flames from Long Ago

Sweet!
I had a reunion with my first sweetheart last Christmas. Was very nice to see him again, and I recognized him immediately (I'm sure you will do too).
We used to be best friends and it was hard to believe we hadn't seen each other for about 12-13 years. Appart from few extra kg and few chest hair sticking up, he looked just the same.
It's nice to catch up with old friends, but you can also expect a reminder why it didn't work out in the first place

Awww, for your story too!

I don't need a reminder of why he broke up with me, I know why. I wouldn't have sex with him. Lol!

Re: Old Flames from Long Ago

Old 6'3 does not sound so bad, hahah

We have a saying, what's in the past stays in the past. I guess something about skeletons and reasons things didn't work out, yada yada..

Re: Old Flames from Long Ago

Wow that takes courage to meet the past.

mmmm not sure if I would.. I mean by that you keep a certain image in your mind of a dream long ago and with time it becomes a pleasant memory.
It's linked to a time when everything was possible, and the world was to be discovered and events were all amazingly new.
It belongs to a time of youth.

Perhaps it's an incredible moment or perhaps it would be like a 20th high school reunion..
Regardless I suppose you'd have to consider that the sweet memory would be replaced by an unknown reality.

Don't think I'd try that, I prefer my memories.

Re: Old Flames from Long Ago

I haven't run into anyone in RL. But I did run into my first BF on Facebook. I haven't seen nor heard from him in about 18 yrs. (Yeah, what J.L-P said, you'll get old too so don't laugh!)

We spoke on the phone once, laughed alot, caught up, reminisced, he even apologize for a bad thing he did. Over all really nice to chat with him. But that's it. We've not spoken again but I see his posts every now & then on FB and I smile, happy that he is happy and still a good person.

Now.... Crazy Boy... that's a different story. He's a fireman now, still in his home town, never left, not even to the next town over & I really think he is lighting fires to get the credit for saving people......

That is a good point. It's nice to have the old image in your head, while he was young and fit. Seeing an old, fat fart isn't what you want to see.

But just remember my dear JLP:
Sex with an ex can be depressing. If it's good you can't get it anymore. If it's bad you just had sex with an ex.

Don't worry....... I think the bloke has preeeety low expectations anyway.


JLP - I'd wear a low cut top, and take your grandmothers cardigan.

Hide somewhere, and call him when you get there to see what he looks like. Then decide whether its a 'boobs out' first impression or if you should cover those puppies up and talk about religion.

Re: Old Flames from Long Ago

Take a hot looking female friend with you and tell him that you've turned lesbian ever since he left you.

Ha Ha.... There is no way that would work !!!

Besides, what if the bloke turns out to be a good looking billionaire, and you just sold yourself short by bringing the 'hotter' friend - FAIL



Believe me JLP - Using the hypnotic powers of boobs, you can control a man's mind. It is an ancient power that you have complete control over Men with.

Use the Force

You are so crafty, jeez, no wonder simple guys like me cant survive in this shrewd world!

Bill Im disappointed in you, but anyway lets analyse the situation scientifically.

If the guy is a good looking billionaire then he should have no probem finding some 20 something stunner. If hes still trying to meet an old flame then:

a) He has strong feelings for the old flame.
b) Still does not know what he is doing.

But if you're really going to suggest using the Booby trap then I would also recommend some arching and leaning over while sitting across the gentleman on the dinner table and then just watch his reaction. Atleast his eyes should pop out.

BTW, is it okay to cry or atleast get teary eyed when you meet an old flame (for guys) or just act like a cold barsteward?

The last time when the lady got teary eyed, I just said I think its time to leave. Got a lot of shyte from her after that but I hate crying on the airports.
