This week's He Said asks a question.... how many of you have a "one who got away?"
I was talking to a dear friend.... she was telling me about a guy. She's
known this guy was "the one" since 1986. But he got away. To this day
they both say they still have feelings for each other & realize,
despite happy lives, they missed the boat.
My friend said she misses him so much & sometimes has a hard time
with it. Meanwhile he appears to be fine with it... or so she thinks.
I spoke to a buddy of mine, a guy, who told me a long long time ago
about his "one who got away." This buddy agreed women appear to have a
harder time with this kind of situation... again, they appear
to have a harder time.... my buddy says the men have just as hard a
time as the women, the men just hide it better. My buddy really opened
up to me about how he longs for his soulmate, his "one that got away".
He has a good life-a wife and kids-but he feels a connection, a love for
his "one." He claims his "one" feels the same. They've felt this way
since 1987 & still talk about it to this day!
I know a few other people who claim they're the victims of "the one who
got away." They all have different reasons why "the one" got away....
fights, religious, financial, jobs, family, etc. Yet, years later, they
still yearn for that person. Now with the power of Facebook, many of
these "ones" are finding their way back. Problem is, most of the ones I
know are married people having affairs.
This got me thinking.... are these people really missing "the one" or
are they in love with a memory? A what might have been notion? Has life
hit them & their spouse so hard that they think of an earlier time
& associate someone from that earlier time which turns them into
"the one?" But, then... take the two friends I am talking about...
they've never stopped loving their "one" since the eighties!! So are
there a ton of people out there who have let "the one" get away? Just
like that movie "The Notebook."
If you have let that "one" get away, why don't you go get that person? Isn't your happiness more important than anything else?
Tell us what you think...
Are you in this kind of situation? Why don't you drop everything & start a life with "the one?"
Do you think Facebook is enhancing people's temptations?
