Discouraged from dating
I honestly felt this exact way years ago, while out at a bar with these exact friends, noticing his absence and wishing for his presence.I felt like I was 21 all over again in a wonderfully nostalgic way.Looking back, we wish we had shipped her off somewhere when she was 17. We didn’t know what a serious problem this was back then.Now, he has made her choose between her loving, close family and him.And most of all, while I might never end up with my blast from my past, it turned around my discouragement that I would end up alone with cats. He has fought us in every parenting decision we have made concerning our daughter — for six years.After getting that nervous, "I should text him" feeling that I used to get all the time in college, I scrolled through my contact list, found his number (one I haven't contacted in years), and pressed send.
It proved to me that chemistry can still exist years later.Unfortunately for me, my blast from the past hadn't changed at all, which was not good.
