Reconnecting With An Old Flame Abroad

Not too long ago, I blogged about the downside of recycling old flames. The upside to reconnecting with one — when you can revisit old times as old friends.

The other day, I had the opportunity to do just that when I reached out to one of my favorite beaus of yesteryear, Fabian. Fabian and I had an on-again/off-again romance during my junior year in London. Months later, we shared three heavenly days together here in New York.

Over dinner at a cozy Italian bistro, Fabian apologized for his uneven behavior during our involvement. Taking my face in his hands, he said–

“I think we missed a great chance together….I think I missed a great chance.”

That was almost 15 years ago.

Since then, Fabian and I have kept in touch sporadically. I emailed him the other day to inform him I’ll be in his neck of the woods — the mystery city where I’ll wrap up my European Dating Blitz — in September. We have a date.

I’m looking forward to catching up with him. And I’m also looking forward to meeting the “eligible bachelor” he plans to set me up with!
