It’s no secret that I was never the popular kid in High School. I certainly wasn’t who I am now. At least as far as looks go. Personality, some yes, some no. I was skinny, had long blond hair for a year or so. Even had a perm hairdo for a few months. Looked like a young Robert Plant sort of. Needless to say, I pretty much stuck to my small circle of friends. I only dated girls from that circle for the most part. I did manage to land a pretty girl, marry her and have two amazing sons. Alas, her and I weren’t meant to be forever.
Though while I was single and roaming the halls of my school, being a typical teenage male, would catch a look at all the other very pretty girls. It was the 80’s for Pete’s Sake. You already know I’d go back and relive the 80’s forever if I could get away with it. Girls hair styles alone at the time were worth it. Some wild, but most were not. But any who had nice hair at the time, had to put a lot of work into it. Then there was the makeup, the attitudes… I could on and on… In short I was hypnotized by some of them. But I was too shy to even approach them. I had this mentality that they were all out of my league and I only watched them from afar.
Some I remember more than others. Many I can’t remember at all. As with everything time moves on, and so did I. One thing led to another and I find myself back in my home town. And for the past year I’ve just been mostly keeping a cool low profile. Made a few changes to my grand plan and when June comes, I’m moving to a different town. In the mean time, I’ve been poking the proverbial stick in the dating pond to see what ripples I can create. Until now, not a lot of good things have come of that. I did make a friend. All of the dates outside of that haven’t gone well.
That is until I got this mysterious message.
Hey there 🙂 – 4/16/2014 5:55:40 PM
At the time I had no idea who she was. So I innocently replied with “Hi, how are you?”. From there we exchanged several messages. Each one getting more involved. Until we discovered that the world can sometimes be a small place. That we went to High School together and that she was one of the lovely young ladies I had a thing for. (No, that is not her in the picture. I’m not yet ready to disclose who this person is 😉 ) She wasn’t very tall, but she was incredibly attractive. Styled hair, always dressed nice and it seemed anytime I saw her she had this smile on that could melt your heart. For some reason I recall she always had an arm full of books. Which means she’s clever and I like that.
I can say we exchanged phone numbers a few days ago and have been talking to each other nonstop! It’s been really, really, really nice 🙂
Today we met for the first time. As we never actually spoke in High School as I recall. I can’t really say yet where this is all going. But if you’re reading this, it means she read it first. Which would seem that things are going well and she “approves this message” 😀
Twenty seven years ago, I would’ve never even dreamed of this!
