Reading this I was thinking of their description of trawling the Internet search sites, Google, Facebook, and Myspace looking for folks that people went to high school and college with and it had me thinking. Why not look through your past and find old friends and old flames? What they do with them when they’re found is their own business. I’m sitting here thinking what do I have to be smug about, I’ve done pretty much that same thing… almost.
I’ve searched through Google and had good luck finding old friends from College and High School, a few teachers, and even a person who shares my first and last uncommon name in a small farming town in Nebraska. With a last name like mine, we’re related if you go back far enough. We figure five generations or so should fit. Nice guy and we always talk like long lost friends when we do for a LONG time.
There are others I’ve reconnected with like an ex in Palm Springs who I’m truly happy to know is doing well, a couple random college friends here and there, but never to date. I’m the person who says “there’s a reason they are your ex”, for right or for wrong.
An interpersonal relationship is as innocent or as tawdry as the people in it. It all depends on where your head’s at. That’s a trend that is old as mankind.
