    I have occasionally wondered what happened to old flames, but not enough to try to find them. I was lucky to marry the love of my life and he's right here so I can see him anytime.

    Well, I guess, yes, now and then one may wonder whatever happened to whatshisname? But it passes quickly.

    Funny, I was just thinking yesterday about 'two boys' who liked me in junior high when I saw someone who looked like someone I knew. One of them has died and the other I don't know.

    It's hurtful when you really like someone and the feelings aren't mutual. It's also hurtful when you're cheated on especially when you are married. Even so through those experiences you learn not to wear your heart on your arm visibly. I did that and found there was someone who managed to uncover it and win me over for 21 years.

    I often wonder how they are doing and even if they are still alive. I wonder too about the ones that I was too shy with to show my interest and how that would have turned out.

    I guess this is as good a time as any to admit that I HAVE looked up my husband's old flames. :D :p I want to make sure they haven't aged very well. (MEOW!!)

    I'm still good friends with my first old love.

    #2 I know nothing about his fate or whereabouts.

    #3 and #4 are dead.

    #5 I married 51 years ago; unfortunately, he's dead, too.

    I'm still good buddies with my first serious love. We keep in touch, and when Janet and I are up in Dallas, we get together with her and her husband, whom I really like.

    Other old girlfriends contact me, every now and then. I also am friendly with both exes. I always gently moved on as a given relationship was going stale, thus avoiding bad feelings, most of the time.

    I never understood those who held on, no matter what. Life's too short for such nonsense.

    Hi all! I haven't been on this site for a long, long time, and I thought I'd give one last update to my original post. In 2019 (?) i ran one last "people search" on her, and it came back with an annotation that she was deceased. I tried to get additional information, but the web site said that was all the info they had. Later I was on "findagrave dot com" and entered her name. Sure enough, I found her there, and also a link to her obit. She had passed away way back in 2002. She had just turned 50.

    May she rest in eternal peace.

    Seasons Greeting to all of you! Hope to spend a little more time here.

    Sadly, my little guy Hoot crossed Rainbow Bridge in early 2019. i still miss him.

    I lived on the Big Island for about 2 1/2 years starting in 2015, then moved to AZ for a couple of years, then back to Ohio to be near my aging parents.

    I lost my beloved Chipper in 2018, and I still miss him.
    I always will.
    Eventually, I found a Poodle and adopted him, and he is a wonderful companion for me. At first , I just missed Chipper, and didn’t want another dog, but finally, I realized that I also missed just having a little dog to hold and pet, even though I know that no other dog could ever take the place in my heart for Chipper.

    This is my Poodle. He is a total sweetheart, and I am so happy that I got another dog.
