There was a point in my life when I thought I had it all. I had a career, a personal life, great friends and a wonderful significant other. While I loved having it all, I took it for granted. I started to get comfortable, and I let that special someone slip away.
While for the past few years I have wallowed in my pity, stayed single for periods of time, and tried serial dating, I have never found someone who was the same as my first love, the one who completed my life and allowed me to actually say “I have it all.”
I had the crazy idea that I could try to find my long lost love and see if we could give it another chance. I searched on Google and other sites, trying to find the right contact information. It wasn’t until I ran into a site called Canada 411 that I was able to search for my long lost love using his name and matching it with public records. This gave me a trail I could follow.
It’s amazing what the Internet can do for you when you know how to work it. There I sat with a physical address, email address, and phone number, all leading me to my one true love. After allowing the butterflies in my stomach to calm down and the giddy feeling I had to pass, I choose to make that first call.
While I’d like to say that we talked for hours, fell hopelessly in love again, and all was happily ever after, it wasn’t. We did talk for a few hours, got caught up and have since stayed in close contact, but we will never share what he had before. It never hurts to try, doing nothing is what can really cause you pain!
