Is it disloyal to ones partner to wonder if one would have ended up with him or her had facebook and other social networking sites existed 5, 7, or 10 years ago?
The reason for such silly thoughts is the fact that I've been meeting up with old friends, principally from my Naija uni days in the last few days. I suddenly find myself meeting with old crushes and toasters.
I have a particular guy in mind in typing this. We met in 100L, and he really actively courted me. I liked him a lot, but as a good sister in the Lord, I didn't let things progress beyond one stolen kiss in the science faculty of UI. After I left Nigeria, I thought about him often. Since those were pre-GSM and pre-Émail days in Nigeria, there was no way of getting in touch. I had googled him a couple of times in the last few years, out of a curiousity to know what was up with him.
Facebook has reunited us. It turned out that he often thought of me too - at least that is what he says. We are both married with kids now, and its nice to be back in touch.
I am nursing a scientific curiousity. I still can't help but wonder, what if?
