Ok Ladies...

A couple of says ago there was a question on here about "the one that got away" well, my "one that got away" out of the blue calls me and says that he loves me, he never stopped thinking about me...and he wants to get married. I am in a position where I totally could. I am not asking for advice I am just wondering what you would do???

  • If he is the one, do it.

  • I'd see him, but it would be on a beginner basis, not on past relationship. We'd have to start over. I wouldn't be swayed by what he is saying now.

  • Wow that would be awsome in my case of the one that got away!! I just dumped him and went on to the next one that I do love but it is different! He tried getting back in touch but I just ignored him. I didn't realize after so many years and four children later I would still love him. I still get butterflies when I think of him but I had no guidance and no one to really to talk to about it. So here I am just caught in a trap. I hope you do what is right! Goodluck

  • I agree with Bmat. Obviously something happened in the past relationship that made it not work. Just start off fresh and see how things work. Good luck!

  • I have been through something like this before. My first love cam back into my life after 6 months, telling me that he loves me and that he will always come back to me. At the time it meant the world. I do regret letting him go, I did it for his own good, plus I felt betrayed that he left for so long without really a word. I say go for it, if he's the one you are meant to be with he will stay (or come back), and if not, at least you have the moments inbetween. Don't like him be "the one that got away" again, be happy, be in love. See where it goes. Good Luck!

  • I would take it slowly. Marriage is HUGE, how do you know that this person has or hasn't changed over the period of time that you've been apart??

    My first love & I are friends, I see him jumping from relationship to relationship, saying I love you to the girl within the first month. What kind of stability would he provide? He's in no way in "love" with these girls.. he's lonely. He doesn't know how to be alone. He hasn't been alone since he & I split in 2002!!

    I think, if it were me, I would have to seriously, seriously, take the time to get to know the person again.
