There was another girl I liked a lot in college that over the years I thought a lot about. Because I'd been keeping in touch after I graduated but not getting anywhere. I move on and before long propose to the woman who is now my wife. I swear to God, later that night, college girl calls me on the phone and wants to talk. Seriously wants to talk. I cut her off before she gets too far to tell her I'm getting married.
Over the years I often wondered "What if I waited another night to pop the question? Would it have been a lot different?" I mean I used to think about that a lot.
Well when the power of google made it easy to find people I looked college girl up. And there she was. With her lesbian partner. End of wondering.
Not quite the OTGA because I never really had her to begin with, but I was friends with a girl all through jr. high and high school, and was completely head over heels obsessively in love with her. For 6+ years I pined for this girl. I always thought somehow we'd wind up together. When college came around, even though she was in Cleveland and I was in StL, she flipped out and basically severed all ties with me. I was crushed. It still hurts some after all these years.
A couple years ago, she finally friended me on Facebook. Same story as you, Joe. Stark. Raving. Lesbian. But she's still beautiful and I am glad I can at least chat with her again.
