Or revisiting a place where you spent memorable times together. Engulfed in each other’s company. SO…LETS GO!

Reconnection with a lost sweetheart.

Ready to go-for-it? One major hurdle for many is: finding the time to be able to devote to locating your ex-special friend from the past.

Although one of the benefits as we grow older is being more introspective. Finding certain days which are less packed.

Thus providing an opportunity for us to embark on more frequent time-machine journeys.

Enjoying reminiscing and mentally meandering back “through the passage of time”.

To wryly smile when recalling some of the crazy, chaotic, irrational, baffling and bizarre behaviours you got up to.

Especially remembering that special person with whom you shared those times gone-by- with. Mixed with the frustration and sadness that you will probably never see them again.

1966 was the year for Michael. It was when he both found and lost his soul mate.

He recalls “At that time we had just won the World Cup. I was age 20, ‘wet behind the ears’ – naive, a know-all selfish and frequently downright bloody stupid! 

Today (now in my 7th decade) I sometimes try to visualise the face of that very special person whom I hurt and let down so badly.

The girl whom I deservedly lost all those years ago. Today trying in my mind to recall how she looked then and how she might look today- Would I recognise her? Sadly not a single photograph.

Often when I pass people in the street I see a person (who appears may be of the same age group) I find myself looking twice. Thinking (illogically) maybe it is her! Actually, without her knowing it she got her own back on me. Leaving me with a haunted memory of her.

Yep, she could be ‘that one’ amongst 60 million other people.

Find a long lost love | Questions

Questioning myself? Why did I behave as I did?

Without shifting blame in my early teens, one reason was that I suffered a distinct lack of self-confidence. Paralysed with fear, that I might never ever find a girlfriend at all.

It seemed to me that whenever I reached out to socialise with any young ladies, I usually tended to get the “brush-off”. Although it was slightly reassuring, that my accompanying mate, fared – no better either.

Hammersmith Palais the place to go.

More often than not my pal and I would set off to a dance (usually the Hammersmith Palais). Not sure why we opted for the Palais, as our track record there was a shocker. When inviting ladies there to dance we tended to suffer one knock-back after another.

In the end, we just didn’t have the confidence to try anymore. Subconsciously making us feel we were not worthy of having a girlfriend.

Instead, we tried to look macho by sitting casually on a bar stool all night.

The alcohol did provide some “dutch courage” to try again, but being drunk, didn’t add to our cause.

The upshot was we eventually gave up on going to dance halls. Instead, we began to frequent coffee bars, especially where there was a juke-box.

Great hangouts in those days, and full of young people. When we both eventually found a nice girlfriend we couldn’t quite believe it was for real. Indeed it was there where both of us eventually found a girlfriend.

However, our lack of self-confidence still haunted us.

Bizarrely, we would frequently test OUT our girlfriends as to how much they really wanted to be with us.

For example, we would often arrive late deliberately. This was just a way of obtaining a reaction.

Designed, to find out if they really liked us enough to be forgiven. It was all a childish charade on our part. Designed to reassure our fragile ego’s.

Actually It seemed to work.

The more we messed them about the more they seemed to “come back for more”. Indeed we learned this was so often the case. Treat them mean and they come back for more.

Treating her “mean” was certainly the case with this lady in question. Today he would like nothing more than to just see her again once more. Accepting the fact she may not wish to hear from him at all. He fully understands that. But he doesn’t care, is undeterred, and wants to give it his best shot. Should we help him?… we think so!

Tracing a long lost love is what we are hoping to do for this gentleman. The story, to be continued.
