i believe it does and i certainly hope it will happen with my and my crush. who knows maybe along the line we will meet each other in better circumstances that will allow us to actually date and be natural about our feelings
It simply depends on your outlook towards them before the disappearance, and how you changed or matured since then. It happens and it's normal. But simply all depends how logical it is for you to want to be with them. You can love a person and know that you can't be with them for certain reasons. It kind of happened to me, but in a negative way.
It brings the feelings back for the person you used to know, and you always imagined who they are. They grow up, they develop, they change. Dont have feelings for the person in your imagination after just seeing them. But happens.
Yeah; I was a total dumbass and contacted my abusive cheating ex to say I forgive you, and I thought there would be no emotions involved. I was like meh, I don't care anymore what's the worst he could do to me? Naturally I got what I deserved for being such a ding bat.
