Oh geez. Over the last week there have been two.
The first one just apologized for things that went down between us that had caused us not to speak for several months.
And then, someone I dated for a couple months about two years ago just popped up out of the blue. When we had gotten together he had a pregnant future baby momma (from a drunken slip-up with a friend) in Florida. We were in Virginia. The whole time he assured me and was adamant that he had no desire to be with her romantically. I was cool with that and understood his responsibilities. No big deal. Then when she found out that I was around he flipped shit on him and started trashing me. Got overly dramatic and guilt tripped him. He ultimately gave in, dumped me in a really messy, and moved back to Florida. We hadn't spoken since.
Well, here it is almost two years later. I randomly got a Facebook message asking me how I've been and saying that he's spent the last couple of years trying to find me so he could apologize because he was sorry and had made a huge mistake. We did some catching up on the phone. It was obvious that we still got along like best friends.
Three days after that first message he make a 14 hour drive up here to stay for a week. Mostly to see me, but family as well. He's even planning on moving back here in a few months. There's nothing romantic in it anymore and we're much like best friends, but it's all strange.
This kind of thing happens EVERY TIME after a break up. Months go by and they pop up out of the blue to apologize and sometimes trying to get things back. I still don't understand it. I guess they just realize what they've missed out on?
