We both are “wandering souls.” She is one of a few that I have had similar experiences with.
We would randomly pop up in each other’s lives for obscure reasons, and connect for a bit, share for a bit, be intimate for a bit, and then move back on. Learning new aspects of our lives, sharing experiences we have been through over the time that lapsed since we last connected.
Why do we do this when we have so much more to share and learn from them.
Many of us consider re-dating or reconnecting with old flames. Re-dating or reconnecting is revisiting or “dating” someone you have been in a past relationship with.
I’ve heard from many people that once a relationship is over, it is best to move forward and never look back.
However, this one in particular most recently touched my soul deeper than any human had ever touched my soul in the 34 years I have been on this earth. We traveled together, she took me out of the country for the first time to a beautiful island in Mexico, Isla Mujeres, and I got my first passport stamp!
However, who can honestly predict their own future, or situations that may present themselves to us?
Why do so many of us close the door on old flames from the past and lock the doors?

Zack chases Kelly, Zack gets Kelly, then they break up only to date again…and then inevitably beak up again. (Spoiler: they get married too.) First, let me state that I am a firm believer in re-dating/reconnecting. When you reconnect with someone from your past, you already have that basis of chemistry, which, in random encounters with new people is much more difficult to find or navigate through.
I feel by the responses of my friends and reactions from others that this is not a popular notion. You tend to open up more quickly and more deeply, and there is already some semblance of a foundation of trust. Recently, I reconnected with an old flame as she was searching on social media for people to help her move.
(Assuming the initial break up or drifting apart had nothing to do with trust issues.) There is a season and a reason for everything. I had not spoken to her in a few years, and I decided “what the hell, I’m not busy that particular day and it would be interesting to catch up with her afterwards for a bit.” This eventually lead to one of the most amazing eight months of my life.
When we first met, we were in high school, we dated off and on for about a year and after high school our paths would occasionally cross randomly for short periods of time but we never got serious.
