In “Boomerang boyfriends” I talked about how former beaus — or potential beaus — resurface in my life. If we parted on good terms, I enjoy seeing a guy again to catch up, but so far I’ve not rekindled any former love interest.
Tomorrow night I have an opportunity to see if this pattern changes.
I have a date with a man I dubbed “Dreamboat” when we went out three times a year ago. He went “poof” without a word, but I knew his new job had him traveling 28 days a month. I figured he hadn’t felt the spark I did, so, as many men do, just went away rather than saying so. We connected in Dec. when I asked his advice on an area of his expertise. He was helpful and friendly on the phone, and I offered to cook him dinner to thank him. He didn’t turn me down but also didn’t accept, so I figured he wasn’t interested in getting together.
Three weeks ago he emailed me and inquired about getting together. He’s taking me to dinner tomorrow.
Now I’m curious if my memory has embellished his characteristics over the year. Will we click as easily as we did the first time we met? Will we find each other as easy to amuse, interesting, and sexy? Or will the chemistry have fizzled?
Have you ever reconnected with a former love interest after a year or more? If so, did you pick up where you left off, or start to build rapport again? Did your memory match who he was, or had one of you grown beyond the other? Did you start seeing each other again, or did you decide it best to just be pals?
