Last week while I was on LinkedIn I was viewing connections and profiles and ran across someone I have known for many years. We have not seen each other in 15 years. I messaged him and he returned the message with “Wow” and the catching up on how we both have moved.
The next message he said to email him at his personal email or call upon which he left his phone number. Now the last time I spoke to him he was married. This man is either married, seeing someone and very seldom alone.
Thinking that he may still be married I emailed him and asked him why he moved and I asked him a question concerning his wife. The email response I received was that it was a long story and he would rather talk to me on the phone.
Should I call him? What if he is still married? I decided to give him my number and put the ball in his court. And to which I asked when is a good time for us to speak. I received that his time was flexible but he did suggest a time. Fine!
I started to get excited to talk with him and looked forward to hearing his voice. The time of day came and I received no phone call. I started thinking that I must of read the email wrong and maybe I was suppose to call him. So I did. I was nervous and giddy like a teenager, in love with the idea that a man wanted to talk to me. Stupid at my age to feel that way. Anyway, we spoke for not very long as he was on his way to work. Long story but what he does has to do with seeing patients in the hospital. No he is not a doctor.
Anyway he said he would call back later and he did where upon we spoke for at least 1 hour. He mentioned he has thought of me many times and did not know how to get in touch with me and he is divorced. Yeah:) Oh he is in a relationship that is the most easy one he has ever been in. Really? Okay my heart sank then he mentioned Skyping each other so we could see each other. In the mean time let’s look at each other on Facebook. Okay.
There he was a little older than I remember him but he still looks pretty good. My picture is of my son and me at my son’s high school graduation. We talked a little longer and then I said I would check in on my Skype account later.
The next day we Skyped each other and “Wow” again at seeing each other. He mentioned maybe getting together and I was feeling all excited that he may want to date me. What? what am I thinking? I know he is dating someone, I know that he dated me in between other women. We live miles away from each other. Stop it! And with that thought I guess it did stop because I have not talked to him in a couple of days. Maybe he was thinking the same thing, maybe his girlfriend is back in town, maybe he came to his senses, maybe we both did.
It’s fun to have someone pay attention to you and it makes you feel special and pretty and sexy but then reality hits and you have to keep your feet on the ground and take your head out of the clouds. I’m fine about it because this way it is over before it began. The best score in tennis is zero to zero – Love.
