Course you should. He may be happily married with kids and is just getting in touch to say hi! Don't read too much into it at this stage.

BeauLocks · 09/06/2008 12:11

Or he may be recently divorced/separated and fancy a shag

zippitippitoes · 09/06/2008 12:11

the only thing to besr in mind is that he has waited till its free to get in touch lolol

and yes if youd like to then reply

choosyfloosy · 09/06/2008 12:14


depends on what kind of men probs. If you have a partner, i wouldn't go there at all tbh, except perhaps a 'nice of you to get in touch - here is pic of me with my family enjoying life - what a long time ago it seems I last saw you' and leave it at that.

oooh how exciting!

citylover · 11/06/2008 12:37

Yes very exciting. Go for it. (Keep us posted).

I met up with exbf last year after 16 yrs - we have been seeing each other but it is a bit on/off (hence my other thread re online dating).

I just had to meet up with him out of curiosity as much as anything. Luckily I was not disappointed.

fawkeoff · 11/06/2008 16:29

gillybean2 · 12/06/2008 10:41

Oh don't be such a baby, you know you're going to do it at some point, so stop putting it off and do it! He's probably bald with a beer belly anyhow. Enjoy it, and go meet him. What do you have to loose?!

fawkeoff · 12/06/2008 11:29

Don't worry about the weight I had put on some weight of course but so had he.

TBH I fancied him more than when we went out together. And I told him that on one occasion.

Can you ask him to send you a photo?

fawkeoff · 12/06/2008 11:40

nooooooo i dont want to see him lol...dont know nto bothered about what he looks like, more bothered about his personality iykwim????

I'm scared that we a re too differant to get along

he is a dental technician , with 2 cars, lives in a lovely area....and i am a single mum to 2 kids and a student lol...
I just dont know hoq to feel, was really excited about it but last night i just changed my mind, i dont know what to do...i dont want to not meet him and then regrettiing it or vice versa

This happened to me. I met my ex after 23 years. I was also worried about weight. He'd put on loads of weight, more than me even. It still only took us a matter of hours before we were in bed. It didn't work, but it was really good fun.Be prepared for anything and everything.

gillybean2 · 18/06/2008 21:46

When you say it didn't work did you mean long term or just being in bed? Just wondering if viagra would have helped! ;)

confusedmamma · 19/06/2008 11:01

It absolutely worked in bed. Fantastic. After years of chasing my libido and wondering why it kept running away from me, it all changed overnight!! It didn't work for other reasons, some connected to why it didn't work the first time round and we both have a lot of baggage, emotional I mean, not holiday stuff. As an ego boost, a reminder of how you once were and could be again, it was the best thing I could have done. It hurt when it ended but it was worth it.

fawkeoff · 19/06/2008 12:02

he texted me last night after days of ive decided that i need to be fine on my own....not embark on some sex with some guy i USED to know...we arent the same people....nothing will come out of it apart from a shag...and i just dont want to go down that road............deleted his number

OP posts:
gillybean2 · 19/06/2008 12:14

Did he say he wanted a shag? I thought he'd just asked you out for a drink and a chat!
