Should I contact him or not?
I am going to let my readers decide, because let's face it, I think through this blog I have proven I have AWFUL instincts when it comes to dating!
Ok, here is the back story. And by back a I mean like 15 years ago.
I was living with a guy (let's just assume it was a loser, dysfunctional relationship and move on).
I was working with another veterinarian. Wait, did I call him a veterinarian? He was the ADONIS of veterinarians.
Oh, his longer silver streaked hair. His little earring. He was the toast of the town. EVERYONE loved him. His clients, his staff, my staff, the staff at every other clinic in town.
And he was oblivious to how hot he was.
Now did I mention how sweet he was as well. He always helped at the humane society. Spaying and neutering our shelter animals for $5. Like I said a sweet-heart.
I, of course, was in love with him (because clearly I wasn't with the guy I was living with), but so was... well... the rest of the town so I didn't think any about it.
Then my relationship blew up and I left town. I went by the Adonis' practice to say good-bye. Somehow my breaking up got mentioned and he was floored.
"You can't leave."
"Um... the car is packed."
"No, I love you."
"WHAT???????????????????? I mean I love you to, but WHAT?????????????"
Turns out this whole time he had been pining for me as well. And Quote: "$5 spays? I'm a nice guy, but come on!!"
To make a very long story short, we kissed and then I left. Forever.
I know, I know. I was a retard, loser, crazy, psycho chick. I panicked and ran.
I hadn't talked to him in forever. Now about 3 years ago I looked him up and called. We had a great talk (not touching of course on any of the I love you part) and he gave me his email. I wrote and left a followup call at his house, but never heard back from him.
I let it go.
Then out of the blue I was telling this story (although not as abridged)to co-workers and they were like - look him up!!!
Which I swore I would not do.... until later ;-)
No facebook, no twitter (I mean that's a problem right there), but I do have a current photo and work number. According to his bio, he is unattached.
So? Do I let it go and chalk it up to mistakes of youth or reach out on the off chance there is something still there?
