Same class. ex.
Most Helpful Guy
Been there, lived that.
We were both 14 when we met, same class in HS.
It's hard, VERY Hard. I tried once to get over her, 2 years later, didn't succeed. She was still there, in class and in my head.
I only got over her when we went to different colleges. There I finally looked at other girls. (I must say I looked at lot of girls then and they helped me to nearly forget her.)
I met her again only 5 years ago. She has one daughter a yr younger than my son , another one a year older and she has 4 grandchildren now. (We're both happily married)
I have her address, mail and phone: she lives 30 miles from here. I never went there, never contacted her. I see her once a year at a school reunion, and sometimes in the seaside town where we both own a vacation apartment. (pure hazard)
Only yesterday I did see one of her daughters on television. I knew at once who she was, despite never meeting the daughter. (verified it on Facebook)
Thus she isn't forgotten.
Luckily, I'm no longer in love, I consider her a friend now. One of those old friends you meet twice a year.
Good luck, take your distances, avoid her, but mainly: get seen with other girls!0
