Would curiosity kill the cat?

My sister bumped into my ex bf the other day and he was asking lots of questions about me apparently.
A little history here. He was my first bf, we were engaged and together for 7 years some of that time living together. I got pregnant by him but didn't go through with it, please don't judge sad , in my defense I was a teenager. The relationship had great highs and great lows. We were young, hot headed and blooded. I loved him. I ended the relationship and without sounding too dramatic, it was quite a traumatic time.
Move forward 20 years!! I'm married with dc's. I don't live in the uk. He told my sister he's in a long term relationship and has a dc.
Now I'm thinking about him again and would love to know what's been happening in his life. Am I mad to be even considering trying to catch up? Apart from my sister randomly seeing him I have had absolutely no contact in all those years and honestly haven't even been thinking about him.
Why are these thoughts in my brain? confused .

Just don't go there. You don't want to know how his life's been - you want to revisit your youth, and the excitement that came with it. So work on making your current life more interesting instead - dredging up old boyfriends never ends well.
