I did it recently with a guy i went to school with. He moved over here from Brazil when he was about 13 and he was sooooooooo gorgeous!! He used to brag that he would be a model. I had the biggest crush on himm and I always wondered what he would look like now. I googled his name, found him emailed him - he emailed back - with a photo!! Turned out be be pretty average in the end but cured my 10 year curiosity!!

I do it regularly. I never act on what I find but Im always curious. I know Ive moved on/changed etc just wonder how much they have. An ex asked me to move to Halifax with him when ds1 was 3wks old. Now I have ds2 whos almost 3 and ds1 is 4! Its curiosity.

I do it on a regular basis. Not only exe's but people I have ever fancied. I am real little bunny-boiler!

God, no, you're not the only one. It's riveting, I find.

Ok well I just have because of this thread! Found uni ex on Google just in a company staff listing but he's put an entry on Friends Reunited where he talks for four paragraphs about his career and not one mention of the fact he's married with two kids. So maybe not the enormous loss I thought it was when I was 20 after all!

God no, you're not the only one! It's what Google was invented for, wasn't it?

Me too. He'd emailed me to say he had a crush on me at school (like I didn't know lol) so I googled and he's pretty famous and there were interviews with him too. My goodness had he changed though for the better.

You're not from the NE are you trefusis? Could be the same guy?

Louise1980 Wed 18-May-05 18:45:40

Oh no I just looked him up again and all the things fit. He has his own business in Northumberland!!!! Think I should ring?
