Love is in air, or at least the air between my ears.

His name was (is?) Torrey. I could just go for it and embarrass myself, but the post would confuse us all.

But I will divulge that there was a man named Torrey and though I have not spoken with him in years, I loved him like I have never loved anyone else, ever.. He brought me back to myself and made me feel again. In that sense, he saved my life.

Of course, that is not the whole story.

But oh, Torrey, Oh lord. I loved Torrey. Writer, poet, lover, vagabond, boy of no fixed address. My darling.

The relationship is over. But the love, the innocent good intentioned kind, is forever. I have never stopped missing him.

What about the rest of you? Who rearranged the workings of your heart, forever? Who do you miss?

Come on, tell. I did, after all.

My first, really serious boyfriend, who had a girl's name. I still see him now and then, and might actually see him tonight.
Crap - turns out I have a lot of those loves, actually. Almost all my ex boyfriends. I loved them all... (there's a country song in here, somewhere...)

Julie. We were 5.

I think you know my answer to this, but I really don't miss him.

In fact, if he hadn't screwed me over for the FOURTH time I wouldn't be where I am now.

So I thank him from the bottom of my heart.

My ex's grandparents. I don't miss the ex, but having lost three of my grandparents by the time I was 16, I really enjoyed his. They were so incredibly welcoming and wonderful to me when we visited them. I even sent me money in a card once, maybe for Easter. I wound up writing them a thank-you and goodbye note at the same time. . . I used the money to get a manicure because he & I were going to look at engagement rings, and then he broke up with me. I am still hoping to get married someday, but I am very thankful I didn't marry him. A lot of his extended family was really, really nice, though.

I miss D. I miss him badly ... I ask myself why I had to find love after so many years only to enjoy for such a short time. I wonder if he will ever get over his depression, look for me, and resume our bliss right where we left it..Despite all love is great and would do everything I did for him again andagain. F.
