Strawberry Letter: Man From My Past
Dear Steve and Shirley,
I just got both of your books and couldn’t put them down. At the same time I ran into an old friend of mine from 20 years ago. We had seen each other back in the day and I found out he was married and stopped seeing him. I saw him off and on for years after that and always had a soft spot in my heart for him. He is divorced now and I started talking to him the last 3 months or so.
He has stopped by my work and brought me lunch, he calls me several times a day and texts me. He has professed his love for me in words and talked about a future. He has an important job and works a lot of hours a week. He is older now (59) and is afraid that they will replace him with younger stock so he works all the time to prove himself.
The thing is everytime he said we would get together, something would happen, his dog died, he has a repair at work, I will be on my way babe and no show-no call. He would be apologetic the next day and we would set up something else but the same thing would happen. I finally got mad and he told me that since he lives so close to my work he would get me a key and when I wanted to I could go there and he would see me after work. (I live about 30 miles from him). This has gone on for 3 months now.
So finally I told him either he comes up with a key this week, or something. He promised so Saturday came and went and I got a text saying I’ll be there soon, I love you and miss you and we will spend premium time together. NO SHOW-NO CALL. Next day he told me where the key was but said he would send address and directions. That was Sunday and today is Wednesday………I haven’t heard from him like he vanished from the face of the earth.
I so want to tell him what is on my mind but my friends tell me to get on with it and get away from this and start to date again. (It has been years since I have been out in the dating world)..I guess I know what I am supposed to do, but I need a man’s advice on this Steve.
