The One?

by - Sunday, August 25, 2013

Sometimes I find myself thinking about a guy from my past... way back in my university days.

We liked each other... but the timing was always off. He had a girlfriend, I worked too much, we lived in different cities dying the summer (really, when I went to university it was before the advent of texting, smart phone and in all honesty, the regular use of email)... the odds were always against us. Then I met my ex and eventually got married, and last I heard he was with a first-class bitch that had him secured by the gonads. 

We hooked up a couple of times during school, the time we spent together was good... but we never had a relationship. 

Is it weird, that even though we haven't seen each other in well over 10 years (and the last time was just a quick hello in a hallway... I'm pretty sure I was already married at the time), and even though we never had a relationship, that I wonder what would happen if I ran into him now. Would the timing finally be right? 

Or would we just say "hi" and keep going along our current paths?

  1. My second chance hallway happened.

    The timing was finally right.

  2. None of my ex's or almost boyfriends suffered from timing problems. But I do think timing plays a LOT into a good relationship.

    I'm pretty sure if I'd met my husband when he was in high school we wouldn't be together.

  3. timing is everything....and I find myself often wondering the same thing about a certain someone. You just never know what's meant to be until it is. We all change so much from day to day...
