yeah, I know, I haven’t been around much…. I promise to get it together soon.
People change, but not always the way we want them to. I’m just going to throw that out there as a starting point.
I apologize if I’ve already told this story, or parts of this story. A long, long time ago I was a young college student. Not a young, naive college student. I don’t, actually, remember ever being naive. But I was young. And for a while I had this boyfriend who I’ll call D. D was very, very cute. And kinda not very bright. But very, very cute. He was a few years older than me and claimed to have graduated from college a couple of years earlier (not the same school I went to) but I never entirely believed him because, as I already mentioned, he was kinda not very bright. I’d like to also mention that he was a really great guy, in a lot of ways. He volunteered at a local nursing home and was good to his family (babysat for his sister’s kids, for example). And the sex was great.
Anyway, we split up for a fairly mundane reason, but I never really regretted it. I didn’t see us having a future. Just lots of fun while it lasted.
Skip to a few years after I graduated when I get a call from my mom. D had called her and told her that he never stopped thinking about me and really wanted to get in touch with me (which translated in my mind to, he just got out of a relationship and was dreaming of gfs past). My mom didn’t give him my number, but she did take his for me. And I was curious (read – not seeing anyone special) and so I called him.
