Reconnecting part 1
What are the odds of reconnecting with a person you knew almost twenty years ago and completely forgot about. Then the moment you see him it all comes back to you. How could you have forgotten this person. If you would have connected back then what would your life have been like now. That question came up in my thoughts but we can not go back in time. There is a saying that if you see it and you want it, it will happen. It will come true and that has proven its self to me countless times. I saw myself with him all those years ago and I wanted to kiss him but at the time we couldn’t be. It was not our time so why now. Well I happened to be on a dating app and I saw this guy that I knew but could not place him. His name was so common that there was no way I could place him. I had to know and I swiped right and we instantly connected. It was an instant match and my message was Hello, you look very familiar. He was so sharp he said hi maybe we meet in our dreams. I found that hilarious and we briefly chatted. A couple of days went by and I couldn’t get him out of my mind but I couldn’t place it. I had to know so I messaged again. I said hello, it’s driving me crazy but I know you. He says nope your not familiar. I say come on help me out where did you grow up. We grew up in the same neighborhood but he is older so we didn’t go to highschool at the same time. Then it dawned on me I linked my account through Facebook and have my nickname on it so I tell him. Wait my name is Arelis and he said yes I know you. You were my neighbor from 1999. Whenever I hear a Jlo song “if you had my love” I think of you. I said what wait who the hec is this. Then he told me he dated my old college roommate hence why we could never be though we had a lot of chemistry. I never understood why he was with her but we were young and he should have been with me but the hoes always got the man in college. So I have to be proud of myself for not being that kind of girl. We start chatting and exchange numbers. I was so excited to meet him and get together. We met in the city neutral territory its almost 20 years I didn’t really know him anymore. Really the city was equal distance for us so we met there. The date was exactly what I always wanted. I desired a man to walk with me and hang out with me. We went to the Brooklyn Bridge and we walked to a bar had an appetizer and a drink each. Then we spent a gorgeous day by the bridge walking, sitting , talking and laughing. He has the most beautiful eyes but they are a different kind of eyes. His eyes are lost eyes. He doesn’t use them much he looks away. He didn’t seem to know how to relax so maybe I got him nervous. We went to a pizza shop that was famous and waited like 45 minutes on line to find out they only sell by the pie. We ordered one and had another 15 minute wait but we sat and talked. A boat passed by with a couple that had just been married. He asked me how I wanted to get married and I said I love the water and boats. We laughed at how much that particular boat was rocking. We both agreed maybe not the best wedding venue. I did say I wanted a small private wedding if I ever did it again. I said I didn’t know how to love. Maybe not the best thing to say on a first date. I should have said I don’t know how to love a man. We got our pizza sat by the water and ate it. Then he walked me to an ice cream truck and we got ice cream again sitting by the water. It was gorgeous. We walked back to his car and he said he had wine at his place and invited me over. I said yes without any hesitation.
