I went to a screening last night. That's not unusual, but what was, was that in the audience, in this very small theatre, were three of my ex-boyfriends. Weird. Well, maybe not so weird. I've worked in the film industry for more than 20 years now, and was on the fringes for several years before I got my first paying cinema job, so I suppose it only makes sense that the people I met and went out with were also in the industry.
But you know how it is when you see someone you went out with a long time ago again, and you look at them and go 'why? What the hell did I see in him?' Yeah, I had a little of that last night.
But then there's one guy (who was there last night too) and every time I see him again (which isn't often because he doesn't live in the same city as me) I remember exactly why I went out with him, why I liked him. And it's funny, because the traits I like in him are the same traits I like in my current partner (of 15 years and 2 kids).
I guess I have a type.... Who'd have thought?
Have you ever re-met someone you went out with and remembered exactly why you loved them?
