Holiday break is just around the corner, and many of us will be heading out of Northern Virignia for a well-deserved vacation. It is a time to relax with family and reconnect with old friends. One LRB reader is debating whether to rekindle a romance with her former flame whom she will see but is wondering if it is the smartest move.
“In high school a girl and a guy were dating for three years straight, towards the end of her senior year he broke up with her. The main reason why they broke up was because, they both were going off to different colleges and he didn’t think the relationship would work long distance. However, they both promised that they would always love one another and have a special place in their hearts for one another. Once they went off to college they stopped communicating for like three or four months, and now he is randomly texting the girl everyday and he wants to see her now that he is back in town for Thanksgiving/Christmas break. Should the girl see him knowing she still has feelings for him? And should she get her hopes up that he is trying to get back together just because he is saying he misses her and wants to spend some alone time with her? Or is he just playing games with her? Would you happen to have any relationship advice to lend? I want your advice along with others.” – High School Love
