    We were in a school trip close to London, back when I was 13, and there was this Spanish girl Lourdes.
    Wish I didn't give her a fake address, she just wanted to send me post cards probably :disappointed:

    Not sure if this counts as a missed opportunity or connection.

    I met a guy in college who was in almost all of my classes, we were lab partners in the darkroom labs, there was a mutual attraction that neither one of us spoke about or acted on because we were both in relationships with what would be our future ex-spouses. We stayed in touch for about a year after graduation, and as things happen, we drifted apart.

    About 18 years (and two ex-hubands) later. I worked with his younger brother. When it came out that they were related, I asked his brother to have him get in touch with me. Found out years later that his brother never passed along the message, which was sad because we were both single at the time.

    Fast forward another 20 years, and we did reconnect through Facebook via another one of his brothers. But sadly he now has a live in girlfriend, so there has only been some harmless flirting and conversations around what "might have been" if we had acted on the attraction.

    But we do both have some wonderful kids with our respective ex spouses, so there is that. And we are still good friends.

    Boy Howdy !

    Start ? No idea.

    The End ? .... ain't too sure about that either

    But somewhere along the line, there was a girl from Encinitas, 3 bottles of tequila, a public beach and a very angry Mexican policeman.

    One time I was in Miami watching the Miami Heat kill the opposing team (When they still had Lebron) I had Amazing seats ...At one point the ball went out of bounce & landed in my lap ...So Lebron is sitting there looking at me like "Well ...Anyday now" So since I played some hoops B4 I passed him the ball like a pro ..He caught the ball & said "Damn!!!!" & just stared at me ,like who is that ...Later on a security guy came up & said "Lebron wants 2 know who u are &;do u play professionally or would u think about joining the Miami Heat & help them win a championship?" I said "Naaa ...I'm really just focusing on my karaoke career right now but tell him thanks" (This story was completely made up )

    I knew this was fake because in real life Lebron would have flopped if you would have passed the ball too hard.
