I recently ran into an old ex that I used to be ‘head-over-heels’ in love with back in high school. He’s an older guy (by just two years) and believe it or not, our relationship was very innocent. There wasn’t any kissing, hand holding, or any other pre-marital stuff going on if you get what I mean. Mainly, we just talked and skyped each other. When he entered college, he moved several states away and ultimately long distance failed us.
Now he’s back and we’ve had chances to catch up. This leaves me thinking about the what-ifs of our new found relationship. What would life have been like if we had chosen to stay together, what if I had chosen to follow him during my college career, what if I just kissed him right now?!
We’ve all been down this path where we start thinking about the “what-ifs,” when we’re with someone we have a crush on. Do you take action for the way you’ve been thinking about this other person or do you just keep the thoughts wrapped up inside your head?
I’m usually the type of person to keep things wrapped up, but this time I decided to get up the courage to make a move! YOLO right? I went in and gave him that kiss that we had both been waiting years for. It was a mixture of emotions, nervous and thrilled all at the same time!
Well, that excitement quickly faded after the kiss... it was horrible! I felt like I was making out with a snake! You know like when snakes stick their tongues in-and-out? Well that’s his make-out style and it was gross. I was more than ready to leave after that point, but he wanted to go further. If his kissing was that bad, then I could only imagine how worse things could get from there... and I wasn't willing to find out!
I’m not saying that all situations will end up like this, but I feel better for knowing where I stand rather than ponder what the relationship would be like.
So my dating advice is be courageous and make a move, you never know how it could end up!
