The movie the Ghosts of Girlfriends Past got me thinking - namely, about people I or my clients have dated but, for whatever reason, things didn't work out. I'll admit I have one person I consider to have 'gotten away', but it was also poor timing for the both of us. He's now a newly married man and sent me a quick note to say as much, but up until that point I occasionally had these what-if moments, wondering about what might have been if we were both in different places in our lives.
It seems I'm in the minority according to SpeedDate.com, who polled their users in 2011 about the one who got away, and whether or not they'd want to reconnect again. Although 65% of the respondents stated they did have someone who got away, only 29% would want to make contact again to see if they could date once more. Just over 5300 people responded to the poll.
But what about you? Do you have someone that got away? What happened? Would you make contact with them again? Why or why not?
