They both sound like really interesting people. Glad they found each other again.

Yeah, I'm absolutely sure that she'll live up to a lifetime's worth of his dreams, fantasies, and expectations.  Totally.

I listened to her story on The Moth a few months ago.  Glad to hear it worked out.

Make sure to get drunk first.  That's when the words really flow. And then mail it while still drunk, you wont have the guts to send it when sober.

She told him she only had a friend but she got what he needed
 
2014-08-24 07:01:32 PM  
But she already had a boyfriend at home, and Howie was too honorable to risk complicating her life.


/Really dude, you should have said something. She was obviously interested in you from the beginning. But glad to see things worked out in the end. Very romantic.

Well, it's not like either just spent the next 60 years wallowing in remorse.  They both lived very full lives.  It's nice to see they still have each other at the end of it all.

I am happy for them, and glad that things like this can happen in a relatively cold and unfeeling world.

That said, I'm pretty sure that article gave me diabetes.

Fate.  One of those things, where you are destined to find each other, again and again, over decades of separation.

Let me tell you, Fate don't care if it makes you happy or miserable.  If you think sticking your dick into crazy is risky, try sticking your dick into Fate.

In those days, Cynthia loved talking to Howie, but she never thought about him romantically. She saw him as a big brother.

These things are not always sappy.  True story.  My grandmother, who was recently widowed got a call from an ex boyfriend from 60 years ago.  She met him for coffee and brushed him off right away.  I asked her, "Mere Mere, why?".  She said "Because he looked too old."  My Mere Mere was in her early 90s.

That was ONE person, who was mocked roundly for it. Sugar water would have worked just as well.

I'm going to make a joke about jailbait coming on things, right after I see what these nice men in suits and dark glasses at the door want.

I hear Brit spies had a great formula during WWI.

And this story just made me think of this....

CSB:

My current girlfriend and I were close friends in high school (this was ~1990, so I was in the "friendzone" before friendzone was a thing). Due to some complications with my family I actually lived with her family for my senior year. We finally got together three years ago and it has been the best relationship I have ever had.

So much dust.  Also very glad that I didn't wait 62 years for my wife.  I'm gonna go give her a hug now.
 
2014-08-24 08:04:07 PM  
Some time ago I met a chick on facebook, she was friends with a friend and all that.

I chatted her up, she knew all the people I knew---lived in the same town at the same town, knew all the people I knew---raised a comparable amount of hell, and let me tell you:  I was one helluva nasty SOB when I was young!

Our lives led parallel paths, but we never met---our paths never crossed.  We kept sending stuff like: "You remember so--and--so?"  I would reply: "Hell yes I do, his wife tried to set him up to kill me!"

So she would shoot back:  "Well, what about this chick and that?"

"This chick I balled, but only once, before she married a prominent attorney---and she used to shoot him up with dope while he was sitting on the toilet with his pants down around his knees!  That chick I never balled---I think I am the only man in town who didn't, by the time she was 21 she had had roughly 500 dicks run through her!"

"God damn you are freaking me out!" she wrote, "How the hell can you know all this?"

Well anyway, I finally rode out to see her---1200 miles from Corpus to Taos, NM---and a beautiful scenic trip!  She is an absolutely fantastic chick: Nice face, decent body, excellent personality---good brain; everything a man could want in a woman-----but our paths never crossed.

What a fathersticking pity.

That was a very well-written article.  Such a story could have quickly turned maudlin in lesser hands.

Years ago I reconnected with my high school sweetheart-- the "one that got away"-- after over 20 years apart (and three marriages between us). We've been together ever since and we're both happier than we've ever been.

Listen to your heart, kids. Don't let people tell you you're "too young to know what love is" because we knew it when we met at 17 years old, we knew it when we were 18 years old and dating, we knew it when we were 22 and saying goodbye despite not wanting to, and we knew it when we were 38 years old and found each other again... And we know it now, as we approach 44 and celebrate another year together.

Everything is still as amazing to us as it ever was. We haven't gotten bored, yet. I doubt we ever will.

I've recently been seeing a woman that I went to HS with 20 years ago.
She is a friend of my cousin's wife who were High School sweethearts.
I remet her at their daughters party, we went out a few times, but I didn't really remember
who she was.
So, we went for a walk after dinner last Tuesday,  and she confesses to me that she had a huge hate-crush
on me for the last 20 years. I was a long haired Goth guy is a very richie, preppy school. Fairly noticeable.
Apparently, she had been thinking of me for the last two decades, and thinks that its fate that we have reconnected.

My reaction was, who are you? It should be interesting to see what happens.

Same thing happened here. We were Jehovah's Witnesses and the elders told her that she had to make a choice ,either Jehovah or me. They married her off to a man that wanted a domestic slave and I made my own mistake. When we were both away from the religion we were finally able get back together in 2010.it was like starting where we left off.She was the only one that ever truly knew and respected me. We are married now and this is what life is all about. Raising 5 kids (3 hers and 2 mine, but both ours) with the one person that you were meant to be with. NEVER settle and NEVER let some tell you that they know what is best for you.We missed almost 20 years but I am finding out that these are the best years.
