It’s the not knowing that’s the killer…

I’ve been looking for someone. And I’ve been looking for a few years now. I’ve tried Google. I’ve tried Facebook. I’ve tried many other sites, but she seems to have disappeared from the face of the earth.

I don’t necessarily want to be back in contact though. I just want to know that she’s ok. That she’s still alive and still out there somewhere. Living. And happy / content.

We broke up 5 years ago now. At first, everything was fine and we remained friends. But I needed time apart, with no contact, because I still loved her. And it was killing me still seeing her. And seeing her with someone else. I tried to be reasonable, but I just got to a point where I couldn’t any more. And then she moved away and I never saw her again.

And I never got that ‘closure’. I never got to say the things I wanted to say. I never got to ask the questions I wanted to ask. I never got to say ‘I’m sorry’.

Every few days, I wonder where she is. What she’s doing. I found her on Friends Reunited a while back. I sent a message, but then, mysteriously, her profile disappeared. Did I upset her that much? Does she hate me that much that she’d delete her profile after receiving a message from me?

I have found her friends on Facebook, but it might seem a bit creepy me asking them how she is. They were never my friends.

But it keeps getting to me. I want to know. I don’t know what this knowledge will do for me if I *do* find out how she is and what she’s doing. Will that satisfy this curiosity? Or is there something else I want to know? I don’t even know why I want to know so much.

I suppose I shall go on wondering for a while longer…

    Sometimes its better to just let the past go. Its always hard when your a ‘carer’. Has said person tried to find out if your ok……if the answers probably not then maybe that should be yours too.

    Hugs and stuff x

  2. I totally understand where you’re coming from on this, but I wonder what you would gain from those answers – or might it just bring you more heartache?

    Pretty much anyone is possible to trace without too much difficulty, but if you did track her down, might she be a bit disconcerted by the amount of effort you went to in order to find her? What if she just out and out rejects you?

    I am not trying to tell you what to do and I would be a huge hypocrite if I told you just to walk away. I know that the unanswered questions can haunt you. But make sure that you take care of yourself in this and don’t set yourself up for unnecessary hurt.

    Yeah.. Two very good points. I’m not really sure *what* I want from her. Or why I want to know so much. Maybe I just want to take the opportunity to get angry. To say all of those things I was too scared too.

    Maybe I need to go find some cushions, pretend they are her, and shout at them instead.. (can you tell I’ve been through therapy??)
