Is there anyone from your past who you'd love to reconnect with?

Asked by Jude (31977 points ) June 24th, 2010

The boy that I almost married back when I was in my early 20’s; I’d love to catch up with him. The last time that I saw him was 10 years ago.

He was a sweet guy and a great friend. More of a friend than a lover (I came out right after we broke up).

Hm.

I suppose I’d like to meet my dad again, but he doesn’t seem interested in being found.

Other than him…. Nah, not really. I’ve gone out of my way to find my best friend from 2nd grade, and family members I don’t really remember…. it’s never worked out in my favor before. I’m over the past. However, I’d love to connect with new friends!

It is funny that you asked this question. I had been looking for one of my first cousins for some years now. She had lost touch with the family. Last night she called my younger sister. So now I have her contact information and I am going to talk to her.

I would like to know what became of the long term boyfriend I had in my adolescence, and his family. The boy really shaped who I became and his family cared for me when my own family would not. I’ve tried a few times to find them, but to no avail.

I had some really great friends early in my university years. My memory is so fuzzy that I can’t remember enough about the individuals, just the feeling of being part of a wonderful group of people. This makes it hard to reconnect. The medications I need to control pain and my sleep problems make my memory pretty messed up. Even where I remember names, I don’t know what to say to these people after so long (35 to 40 years).

It is hard to know how to make friends where I live. Many are much older than me and have so little in common with my life history and career history.

My first true love; nearly married him. Have not been able to find him and wonder what he’s doing.

CMaz's avatar

Only if I can go back in time.

I have “reconnect” with loves from my past.

They are not the same. Life does that to people.

Possibly the loved ones I’ve lost over the years. I say possibly because the loss of them made me who I am today, so I’d have to think it over first.

I’ve just graduated from college and have realized there were a ton of people there that I should have been spending my time with. I’d love to hang out with them and befriend them but I’ve moved out of state.

A friend from high school. We lost touch during college and it’s been very awkward trying to restart the friendship.

Previous version of another friend before he snapped.

JLeslie's avatar

Yes. Some people I used to work with who made me laugh and I just loved spending time with them. Also, a couple of people from High School. Otherwise, I am in touch with most people, even if it is minimally though facebook.

@janbb Do you have facebook? If you don’t I can search for him if you would like on mine. Send me a PM if you want me to try.

Yes. I don’t want to explain who.

Unfortunately it would involve raising the dead.

wundayatta's avatar

Maybe. But it wouldn’t be wise.

I had a teacher my senior year in high school who should have flunked me. He called me a“brilliant underachiever”

I’d lime to let him know I turned out ok, and went to college.

AstroChuck's avatar

Ah yes. Roxie! I’d love to reconnect with her. But i’ve lost the patch kit long ago.

pearls's avatar

My first love. I was in the second grade and we would pass notes to each other under our desks. For Valentines Day he gave me the biggest card. Unfortunately his family moved to another state and I never heard from them again. I can’t even remember his last name to this day.

Too many to mention I’m afraid! :-/

This guy Bill from 8th grade. He moved away that year and we had been friends for about 5 years. I wish I could find him but I’ve tried and can’t seem to.

charliecompany34's avatar

her name is gloria. on the night i graduated back in the 80s from college, i went over her house after all the celebration with family and stuff. it was the coolest next three nights of my life after that. she loved prince and purple rain, heineken and weed as much as i did. dont do weed or heineken these days, but MAN, would love to see gloria after all these years.

where u at gloria?

josie's avatar

Not really. The people I truly value, I maintain contact with, unless they are gone. There a few folks that it would be interesting to see how they have aged or changed or whatever, but only as clinical curiosity, and not some emotional attachment. So there ya go.

Your name isn’t Susan Is it?

DrasticDreamer's avatar

Yes, someone. But it will never happen.

free_fallin's avatar

@DrBill Afraid not. =)

DarlingRhadamanthus's avatar

Yes. I think about him a lot. I think I may post a question related to this actually….for some advice. If I get up the courage.

CaptainHarley's avatar

Most of those with whom I’d love to “reconnect” are long dead, but I do have a ½ sister whom I got to meet only once. It would be nice to see her again.

tuxuday's avatar

Very much! Alas, its not possible. :(

netgrrl's avatar

Yes, someone who loved me that I hurt when I was young and stupid, if only to say I’m sorry, I was wrong.

lillycoyote's avatar

No. Not unless the outcome would be different this time.
