Most of us who are of a certain age have that one person in our past who we reflect on from time to time (or maybe even more often than that) ,,You know, The One Who Got Away ... So, the question is: Knowing what you know now, if that long lost love could somehow magically come back to you, would you thank your lucky stars and take her/him back ...or has experience taught you that it wasn't meant to be for a good reason? ? Does the passion still burn, or has the ardor flamed out? ....

Nope. The past is the past. I'm not sure of the reason but I'm sure it was right.

No. Of course I'm looking back as a much older and more mature person.

Richard this is would have to get a 'it depends' response.
Instances of infidelity and abuse in the past would probably make it very difficult to start over.
It is possible that the initial encounter may not have been the right time for you both.You might have both matured over time.
An important part of reuniting would be forgiveness and healing on both sides.

"The one who got away" is to me the one with whom one did not get a chance but wanted to have a chance for whatever reason(s). So yes, most definitely. Anytime, anyplace.

I don't think I have the energy or time to look back .... life is precious at this moment in time and enjoying every thing Blessed Mother Mary and God has given me ... go back would change my future which I would not trade in for something old .... rose hug Praying Dove theheart rosary Dove rose rose rose

I would if he converted to the faith and became a devout Catholic. I'm very fond of him, but we aren't a good match now because our beliefs are so different.

Richard....I would agree with Jim, that the past is the past. Not saying that there was ever a person in my life that Got Away, but it was meant to be heartbeat , then it would have happened.

Since we are more mature and wiser, it would seem that our life experiences would have taught us to truly care about that person, but in our minds we may want to go back in time on how we actually knew that person.

That's my two
two cents
