|I started dating a girl my first week of college. We were off and on for 2 1/2 years. I moved away. 14 years later we reconnected by e-mail. I moved to where she was. We got married and are expecting our first child (any minute?).
|Very nice! And congrats - any minute!! :) nm||rideslikeagirl|

|I had an old girlfriend that I broke up with, got back together, broke up, re-united, broke-up, she tried to kill herself, I felt guilty - but for no reason, I moved. Amazing what the desire for regular sex will do to the brain of a 20 year old! Since then, I've met a a wonderful woman. Got married, had children and lived happilly ever after. End of story.
That's been 15 years. I recently heard that the old girlfriend got married, had two kids, and is happily making money as a drug rep. Ever notice that life sometimes just "fits"?? She's a drug rep now, but tried to off herself with a hoge-poge of pills she stole from the pharmacy that she was working at. By the way...her mother also tried to "off" herself a year or so before I met her. Weird family to say the least.

|Laughed out loud when I read your question. Very close to home for me. Let's see: we met in college in 1989, and dated for a couple of years. This was in NYC, and we were poor students with little money and hardly any privacy. It was very difficult. We had both planned to attend grad school in DC, but we broke up before that phase began.
So we both lived in DC for about 10 years without seeing one another (we talked a few times though). Then we lost touch and she moved away. We didn't talk for years. Then she sends an email from her new home in Chicago, and we start seeing each other as much as possible and talking every day for a couple of years.
Low and behold... it wasn't the poverty and lack of privacy during our college years which presented the problem... it was our lack of compatibility! Ultimately, it was good to have that "what if?" question answered...
Oh wait, what if we both lived in the same city again...?
|Wow, this seems really common||TypeOne|

|Maybe couples need to fight and break up in order to grow and find out if they can be together, eh?
I met my wife when we were seniors in high school, went to (different) colleges, made one awful attempt to get back together after college, then fell out of touch. Ten years later, we learn we are "introduced" by mutual friends...married 2 years later and are expecting a baby in October after 5 more years together.
People hear the sanitized version of the story and think I married my high school sweetheart.
