Years ago, he was there for me when I really really needed him.
We weren't dating anymore, we had broken up a few years before.
I had a family situation. He happened to call my work office with something work related. He heard something missing in my voice and asked. I told him the situation and started crying.
He jumped in his car and drove 9 hours to where I was stationed. He got about 3 hours of rest and we got in my car and drove to my family home about 6 hours away. He was by my side during a difficult time. We drove back to where I was stationed, and then he got in his car after resting and drove the 9 hours back to where he was stationed.
I asked him why he would do that for me when we weren't together anymore.
He told me that I was the one that got away. He said that I was a good person, and if a time ever came where he could make up for letting me go he would and he would always be there for me.
I didn't try to get back together then, but years later, he looked me up and love bombed me.
Because of this particular incident, I gave him another chance.
What happened to THAT man. The one that had my back and was there for me.
Guess I'm taking trips down memory lane that I don't need to. Our D will be final in 60 days unless he contests.
Just feeling sad for the waste of it all today, I guess.
Don't think I mentioned this, but he jumped in front of me when bullets were flying. F...!!!!
