I have come to realize that it really is a small world.
I was contacted by someone on a niche dating site and he was cute and seemed honest and down to earth. So, I emailed and it began a nice relay of emails between us.
Tony, it turns out, went to the same Jr. High School as I did. But, I sure don’t remember him. He sure grew up nice.
It was fun to realize this … although I did have to admit to taking 2 years off my real age to yield my “internet age.” Two years on your age on the internet is like the 5 second rule when you drop food on the floor — it’s OK! Really, it is 🙂
We strolled down memory lane and each of us had kept up with different people, yet had some common friends. It sure made the dating conversation more comfortable.
Tony was a great guy, but after a few dates, I think we realized the “spark” was not there … but the upside is that we became fast friends. How great is that? It sure is a small world.
Funny how you can know someone as a kid and not be aware of them so much or be friends with them, and yet possibly grow up and meet them thru a different venue and wind up dating or getting married.
Have you ever had anything like that happen with people from your past? Or just nice encounters that gave you the hope to go on?
Please share — everyone needs a positive story!
