    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.
