just wayne

Post by ragtopW »

I am heading to the BAY next week

home; I guess, I was raised in Northern California. as with everyone I know I have unfinished business.
I have the opportunity to connect with some one face book,her Brother was my Best man
I had a mad crush on her, back in the day, I got the feeling that she never was that impressed with me,
I have the chance to send her a message, and attempt a meeting. it's been over 30 years
I am thinking of trying to get in touch and see if we could at least chat.

has anyone tried this after all these years? I do not expect any miracle, she is there and I am here.
maybe just some way to see what might have been. any advice?
should I try or just let it lie?


thanks

Just a meet-and-greet; a chat and maybe a cuppa joe?  What have you got to lose?  I say try it.
Besides, you'll be second-guessing yourself forever if you don't.

Hi Wayne! Of course, it's worth a try to reconnect and possibly strike up a new friendship, or more. But you seem like a really great guy, and I am concerned for you -- be careful. People have baggage. Just be very in tune with what is really going on, not just what you hope is happening. Don't mean to be Debbie Downer, have fun!

It can't hurt to meet up. But I wouldn't go with any expectations. Just hang out reconnect and go from there.

All she can do is say no. If you don't, you will always wonder what would have happened. Give it a shot.

Hell go for it. What do you have to loose.

If the worse of the worse happens, at least your not going to run into her everyday or have to have any dealings with her unlike if you had a kid years prior.
Did you hear the one about me being a punk?
Did you hear the one about me being a drunk?
Did you hear the one about me losing my nerve?
Or how I'm just another f**** sheep in the herd?
Did you hear the one about me giving a s***?
Cause if I ever did I don't remember it.

Do it, Wayne.
I did and am very happy I did.
The worst thing that can happen is you'll have a great day with someone who is apparently still very special to you.

The older you get the more you really appreciate the people who are or have been a part of your life in whatever capacity.

Ya gotta get in it to win it!

Best wishes for sparks, fireworks, and charming the pants off her! Aim high! How great would that be?

But if it ends up just a couple hours of smiles and catching up, well, that's pretty excellent too!

I agree with Janice, too. Just be yourself, be happy and funny and true: you're glad to see her again and catch up on what's been happening to her. :D

My advice? Don't overthink it. Just go in, be you, and see what happens.

Do it, do it!
I re-connected with an old flame from about 1984.... We've been going out off and on for three years. We have had some of the best times together.
If you were friends then, you'll be friends...... maybe more......now!
