I received an email from Facebook the other day saying that I had a friend request from someone I knew a long time ago. It seems like my ex-boyfriend from about 20 years ago found my profile. I have no idea how since I didn’t think he even knew my married name.
Turns out he got married 11 years ago and is now living in Las Vegas. He looks exactly the same as he did all those years ago and a flood of memories came rushing back, good and bad. And believe me, there were both. However, I look at him now and I am amazed at how people can grow and change. Reading his profile, I now see a responsible adult who just made a few unwise choices in his youth. After all, I’m sure we all have things we’d like to erase if we could.
I don’t think I’ll keep in touch with him but I am happy to know that he’s doing well. He was once an important part of my life and I wish him the best.
If you’re on Facebook, who’s the most surprising person you’ve found or who has found you?
