I got the most unexpected message on my Facebook page.
From an old boyfriend: It was a rather short relationship; I was 17, he was 19, he was movie-star handsome, but completely wrong for me. We did nothing but bicker. He was an extreme right-wing gun-boy and I was lodged firmly to the left. Knowing what I do now, I can see that he had a pretty severe case of ADHD, with all the benefits of short-tempered, short-sighted, non-stop ranting and interrupting every sentence that came out of my mouth. He also had his share of personal hardships, so I always look back on him as kind of a wounded person as well.
I broke it off and he was, for some reason, really pissed. He could have another girl in a heartbeat, as he had been through a few before me as well. A male ego thing, no doubt.
So he is on some kind of mission to set his misdeeds right, and I seem to be on his list of people who he has wronged. I can't tell if this is some kind of religious thing or maybe an AA thing or what.
He was kind of a dick, but just the garden-variety teenage dick, I guess I got over it and don't particularly feel scarred or in need of revenge.
I wonder if he has any daughters now ...
I suppose I should respond and tell him that I have no hard feelings: I don't feel right just ignoring him, but I have no idea of what to write to him.
