    Good point, JD. I've wondered that too. Not to sound cold, but I've broken a few hearts in my day. I'm sure that I've got an old boyfriend or two who'd like to tie up a few loose ends. I heard that this one guy I dated right before college never really hooked up with anyone else after we broke up-- and that was more than 6 years ago! Well, I'm sure he's "hooked up" but never got real serious with anyone. His name was Vinny and he was so adorable and nice to me and with my teenage girl maturity :rolleyes, I was nothing more than mean to him. I wish I could connect with him now (as friends) to show him that I'm not the same heartless you know what. God, just thinking about how acted around him now makes me want to vomit at my own behavior.

I won't say her name because some of the trauma that she went through then, but her name is the same as a famous author who is also a favorite of mine. The first time I saw a book in the library with the author's name I felt an electric spark go through me. I thought It couldn't be...; I looked at the author's picture and thought Maybe... , but according to the bio the author was from a different area of the country than me and my friend.

    Anyway, I was a total dummy about sex and such matters. I remember my friend telling me that her father took her to see Deep Throat and Beyond the Green Door for her 17th birthday. Even I knew those were pornographic movies. I said eewww to my friend, and in all seriousness she told me that her father loved her so much he wanted her to know all about sex from him rather than someone else. I was just majorly grossed out by this and felt very sad, but it didn't occur to me that a FATHER would do something sexual with his child (yes, I led a very sheltered life). I just thought to myself Man, I'm glad MY Father doesn't want to show me sex , or something like that.

    It didn't occur to me until a few years later what must've been going on. I'm so sorry that I wasn't more aware of the situation. I could've told someone instead of just thinking her father was a weirdo.

    Anyway, after high school she moved away. She kept in touch sporadically for a year or so. I remember that she got involved with an older, married man, which I couldn't understand, and we just kind of grew apart. Five or six years later I saw her mother, who told me that all three of her siblings had followed her to a distant state and were living together happily. Mom wouldn't give me her address. She said my friend had not been happy here and she was starting a new life for herself. Mom and Dad were divorced by then, and I by that time had figured the whole thing out. I guess seeing me would bring back bad memories. I've always looked for her to come back home someday to a high school reunion or something, but I guess she really was serious about cutting her home and her old memories away. I don't blame her, but even after all these years I miss her. I've tried looking her up on people search websites, but I don't know what I'd say to her if I did find her: "Gee, your old man sure was an [mod edit]."?
    How awful, Dinahann! I think it's really sweet of you to have such concern for your friend. Just be happy that she's moved on with her life and is healing. I hope that you guys reconnect someday.

    Thanks, Stargazer and dvm for the kind words. I think sometimes we all look back and wish we'd done things differently. I hope someday to see her again.

    Sometimes the reunion can be a disappointment.
    When I was young and divorced I worked with a young woman who had come here from a city about two hundred miles away to attend the same school I was in. I liked her immediately and sort of took her under my wing. She had never been away from home before and was so homesick she just dragged around all time. She started spending weekends with my children and me and we always had a good time. We finished school, I went to a better job here and she went back home. I didn't hear from her for a few years but once we passed through her city and I called her home and spoke with her dad. He was a very nice man. He gave her my address and she wrote. We exchanged a few notes, cards and so on, then lost track again. A couple of years ago I read an article in the newspaper about a project she was involved in. I got her number from information, called her just to say hello. She could not remember me! I tried to remind her of the fun times we'd had when she stayed with the kids and me, she still didn't remember. I finally just let her off the hook and said, more or less, have a nice life. I was sad that she pretended to not remember me. Our friendship must not have mattered to her at all. There are several people I'd love to hear from but guess I would never make the first move again.

    OH Muduh. That's so sad. I'm terribly sorry that happened to you. Maybe she was having weird issues in her life at the time you called. Still, very sad.

    Mudah, that is sad. It's true though, that most times when you try to contact people you've lost touch with, it turns out they aren't thrilled to hear from you anyway. I've also decided not to make first contact anymore. If that means I never see anyone from my past again, so be it.

    Mudah that's awful. I don't know what makes people behave like that, but you can take comfort in the fact that it wasn't your issue; it's hers. She'll regret her behavior someday, if she doesn't already.

    I'd like to reunite with one of my good friends from high school. Our friendship was a little unusual, but we had lots of good times. Things kinda of ended badly and I wish things would have gone differently.

    Thanks girls for your support. Now I have to feel bad for her. Just think of the friendship she is missing out on.
