When I logged on to my favorite social networking site, the two little red ones glaring in the top left corner of the screen alerted me that I had a new friend request and a new message in my inbox. When I clicked the friend request tab, I was totally taken aback by the face staring back at me and furthermore, by the message in my inbox.
It read: “It’s been a long time. You’re still beautiful I see. We should catch up.”
“Wow! Really? Is this a joke, God?” I thought aloud. I looked around to see if Ashton Kutcher would jump out and tell me that I was being Punk’d. But I wasn’t.
A familiar face from deep within my past had re-emerged after almost a decade. I hadn’t seen or spoken to this guy since our ugly split that left me broken and empty. Although I’ve long let go of the harsh feelings I had towards him, re-opening that door to my past was something I refused to do.
