I have found something to be true, and I was thinking about it tonight.

When you find someone with whom there is chemistry, that chemistry doesn't easily go away. Okay, for ME, when I find someone attractive, I will usually continue to find that person attractive unless he or she shows some heinous jerk side of him or herself that really can't be overlooked.

For example, I've had an inappropriate, entirely unrequited and never going to happen crush on this one man for many years. I kind of enjoy it now. We have chemistry. We flirt. But, it's never going to happen, for whatever reason.

Still. I like that idea, that the people I found attractive twenty years ago are the people I still find attractive now.

Usually, I hear the opposite is true. You know what I mean. You go to the high school reunion, and the hot dude you liked is suddenly an old person (and you are, too!), and it's all different.

So, maybe it's just me. But, my taste in the people to whom I am attracted remains the same. It provides an odd continuity in my life.

That's weird, isn't it? But, oh well. I can live with that.

What about the rest of you? Do you find old flames still bring back all those feelings of attraction? Or, do you laugh and wonder what the hell you saw in them?
