Day 09 → Someone you didn’t want to let go, but just drifted.

When I read the topic for this post a name popped into my mind and I guess that’s a sign.

I think I met Paul when I was in matric. I met him while I was out one night and he was incredibly sweet to me. We had a whirlwind no-strings-attached romance as he was going overseas not long after we met. We had really good times together. I always remember Paul fondly because I only have good memories with him.

We never fought, the time we spent together was spent…well…having fun and it was wonderful. We were completely open and honest with each other. As far as I know he never lied to me, nor I to him.

Then he left for France, as I knew he would. I wasn’t heartbroken. I knew it would happen and I didn’t get attached to him emotionally. We exchanged a few phone calls while he was over there and chatted a bit. When he came back to South Africa once he called me up and wanted to get together. By that time I had already met Rudi and we were already committed and I had to decline his invitation. No good could come of it 😉

Paul and I still chat on Facebook every now and then, but not very often. He is a cool guy and I enjoy his company. He also pops up in my dreams every now and again. It’s always pleasant. I would have liked to stay in touch with him more. He is coming back to South Africa for 3 months at the end of the year and has said he’d like to meet up for a braai and meet Babyice…but oh the temptation 😛 (just kidding!)
