Old Flame

I had this strange urge at the end of the day at work to google the girl I took to prom way back when. I was shocked to see a website that had her bio and it included a picture. So this is how she now looks more than 20 years later....
I recognized her right away. I forgot how she has such a great smile. I've always wondered if the years were kind to her. I probably never should have found this... now I have the urge to send her a message in an email. Maybe I'll do that someday but not from the place I'm at now. I know she became a mom about 6 or 8 years ago so it isn't as if I want to suddenly stalk her. I'd sooner want to build a time machine and go back to when we were both in love.

More than 10 years ago I was able to find her address and we exchanged a few letters and phone calls. It was great to talk to her but I also found that the girl I dated was now different and not at all like the one I remembered. Still... she is now very successful and I'm sure happy. She was always the smartest one I've ever met and I guess she still is.

I don't see anything wrong with sending her a message at all. IT's not stalking her and I think she will be happy to hear from even as just friends. :) She's very pretty
