I have one old boyfriend. We dated our freshman year, he went on a mission and I gave him the option to stop my wedding, he said “go ahead, get married.” So — I did. I actually saw him at the temple the day I got my endowments out. It was VERY weird.
Anyway, I basically forgot about him, until recently.
He married a very popular LDS singer. I see her stuff everywhere (and by everywhere, I mean in the Seagull Book and Tape ad) and it’s just interesting to wonder what his life is like now (and I swear that he made fun of Janice Kapp — I do an amazing “I Walk By Faith” — right along with me back in our day).
Then is the dichotomy. I’d love to have him on my facebook — just to see what he’s doing, etc. Or even just a quick email to say that it must be exciting that they’re doing so well. But I don’t. Held back by my own constraints.
And let’s face it — that’s fairly rare.
Anyway, is your old boyfriend anything special now? (I did look him up on the BYU Alumni site — it looks like he graduated in accounting, so most likely his life is not that exciting….) Do you keep in contact with them? Are you forced to see each other frequently? I am guessing many of you have more than 1, which would complicate things further.
Honestly, though. Sometimes the thought of having to find a new spouse keeps me married. You know, every little bit helps. Random blog, I know.
