    Ooooh boy.

    Has someone that was special from your past (but you've moved on) ever come knocking at your door saying..."I miss you. Do you ever think of me?"


    I swear my head is going to explode.

    I always fear that former "someone special" knocking at my door saying..."Andrew...meet your son..."

    Nope, but I've been the guy knocking at the door. I was looking for closure - I never got it. No matter what I did, I could not get this gal to tell me how she felt about me; the best she could do was "I think we should be friends." I would have preferred a "F**K OFF! and leave me alone!" It would have been honest and was how she truly felt. I eventully learned (especialy when dealing with women) that actions speak louder than words. After six counseling visits and a year of weekly support group meetings, I was able to move on. That was 15 years ago. My advice would be to be HONEST. Don't be mean, but be direct and say what needs to be said. This person likely has unresolved issues that need to be dealt with (by them, not you) so the sooner you tell them directly that they are a part of your PAST and you have moved on, the easier for everyone envolved.

    WHAT A FOOL BELIEVES - DOOBIE BROTHERS
    Kenny Loggins / Micheal McDonald

    He came from somewhere back in her long ago
    The sentimental fool don't see
    Tryin' hard to recreate
    What had yet to be created once in her life

    She musters a smile
    For his nostalgic tale
    Never coming near what he wanted to say
    Only to realize
    It never really was

    She had a place in his life
    He never made her think twice
    As he rises to her apology
    Anybody else would surely know
    He's watching her go

    But what a fool believes he sees
    No wise man has the power to reason away
    What seems to be
    Is always better than nothing
    And nothing at all keeps sending him...

    Somewhere back in her long ago
    Where he can still believe there's a place in her life
    Someday, somewhere, she will return

    She had a place in his life
    He never made her think twice
    As he rises to her apology
    Anybody else would surely know
    He's watching her go

    But what a fool believes he sees
    No wise man has the power to reason away
    What seems to be
    Is always better than nothing
    There's nothing at all
    But what a fool believes he sees...

    Once I had someone trying to recandle whatever it is that we had, that was more then annoying when I tried saying "it's in the past" and he continued trying. I found that there is no reasonning with people sometimes and the best way to deal with him was to tell him off and never talk to him again. You cant say to people who hope for more that you can stay friends, it never works. They stay friends in the attempt of making you change your mind.

    Funny you mention that......

    A person did last year. We emailed a few times, but nothing came of it. Then last weekend I saw her in public (she had just moved back area) by accident. I decided to blow her off, so I pretended not to see her.

    Actually, I was the person from the past. Now I'm not talkin' just a bit in the past. We were best friends from kindergarten to third grade. Her family moved to New England and we eventually lost touch. When I came back from a tour in Korea, a mutual friend of our families told me where she was in grad school and that she wasn't married. We talked on the phone a few times, then I drove 25 hours to see her a few months later.

    Now we've been married for almost five years and have just had a little boy!

    My best friend from elementary school, the very guy who got me into bikes, more or less bumped into me on the introductions forum. His username is Miataspeed. He made one post, I responded and told him who I was, and he never returned to bikeforums, so I'm guessing for some strange reason he no longer wants anything to do with me. I guess thats kind of the opposite of what you were getting at.
    Bring back the Sig Test!

    I recently contacted a woman I was involved with about 20 years ago in college. At the time we were both pretty heavy partiers and our relationship suffered because of it. Things ended on a very sour note and I have always regretted it. I found her with the help of Google and decided to email her and apologize. She replied back with a very kind message that brought tears to my eyes. We have both grown into very different people and I was not trying to re-kindle anything, but contacting her after all this time was one of the best decisions I think I've ever made.

    It's especially fun when they do it at your place of work. Your new place of work. In a city they had no good reason for knowing you moved to.

    Think of me
    think of me fondly,
    when we've said
    goodbye.
    Remember me
    once in a while -
    please
    promise me
    you'll try.

    FIRMIN
    Andre,
    this is doing nothing for my nerves.

    ANDRE
    Don't fret, Firmin.

    CHRISTINE
    When you
    find
    that, once
    again, you long
    to take your
    heart back
    and be free -
    if you
    ever find
    a
    moment,
    spare a thought
    for me

    (Transformation to the Gala. CHRISTINE is
    revealed in
    full costume)


    We never said
    our love
    was evergreen,
    or as unchanging
    as the sea -
    but if
    you can still
    remember
    stop and think
    of me . . .

    Think of all the things
    we've
    shared and seen -
    don't think about the things
    which might have been . . .

    Think of me,
    think
    of me waking,
    silent and
    resigned.

    Imagine
    me,
    trying too hard
    to put you
    from my mind.

    Recall those days
    look back
    on all those
    times,
    think of the things
    we'll never do -
    there will
    never be
    a day, when
    I won't
    think
    of you . .

    (Applause, bravos. Prominent
    among the bravos, those
    of the young RAOUL in the
    MANAGERS' box)

    RAOUL
    Can it be?
    Can it
    be Christine?

    Bravo!

    (he raises his
    opera-glasses)

    What a change!
    You're
    really
    not a bit
    the gawkish girl
    that once you
    were...

    (lowering his opera-glasses)

    She
    may
    not remember
    me, but
    I remember
    her...

    CHRISTINE
    We never said
    our
    love
    was evergreen,
    or as unchanging
    as the sea
    -
    but please
    promise me,
    that sometimes
    you
    will think of me!
