When Your Past Becomes Your Present

(image via)
“New York is definitely haunted. Old lovers, ex-boyfriends, anyone you have unresolved issues with you are bound to run into again and again until you resolve them.”  In a city as big as New York, it’s hard to imagine that just around the next corner could be an old flame or past indiscretion.  With all of the people crammed on this island, you’re bound to run into an ex (or a one night stand) when you least expect it.  Whether you’re shopping at Whole Foods in your sweaty yoga clothes, out on a date with a new guy, or grabbing toilet paper at the corner bodega, you will inevitably bump into a man from your past.  Do you believe the chance meeting is fate?  Is there a reason for this encounter?  Or is it just a random coincidence?  Time and time again I’ve been blindsided by run-ins with ex boy-toys.  At times I’ve made small talk, catching up on each other’s jobs, roommates, and whereabouts.  Then there are the incidents when I’ve put on my Ray Bans, snuck away behind a sun tan lotion display at Duane Reade, and ran without looking back.

Has your past ever become your present? xo
