I was speaking with my mother yesterday. I had not heard from my one sister in a while and asked my mom about her. That usually means she is hiding something or up to no good. Turns out she has reconnected with an old boyfriend on FaceBook and has been "busy".
Here's the deal with that. In college, my sister dated alot of men (I mean alot) until she settled on her husband. This one fellow she date until she met the husband and then she dropped the guy like a hot potato. Fast forward 30 years... My sister's husband tragically died 4 years ago. She has been foundering for some time and very guilty and depressed about his death. This guy apparently never got over my sister dropping him. He got married, but divorced after 18 years. He wrote a book about my sister called something like "My One and Only" or something odd like that. The book talks about how my sister was his only real love. Although his wife is OK, he never got over my sister and always thought and dreamed about her. The book talks about how this affected his life because he always longed for my sister.
Apparently he has been checking for my sister on FB. When she began posting a couple of years ago, he got in touch. They have been dating since. My sister has never mentioned this guy to me. Her kids haven't either. Apparently her oldest is angry she is now seeing this guy and its caused alot of family drama (I so hate the drama!!!).
My mom never liked the guy - she thought he was creepy 30 years ago. She was really happy my sister found her husband and dropped the creepy guy. She's alittle upset the guy is now back but isn't saying anything 'cause my sister is an adult.
My sister is not known to make good choices in life. It's one thing to think fondly of a past relationship but its another thing to pine and obsess about someone for 30 years. I find it down right creepy and stalker like.
Your opinions? If you found out some guy won't a book about you and how he wants you - is that romantic or weird (it's weird to me).
