Do ya'll ever think about past serious relationships? Whether you broke up on good terms or bad do you ever think about contacting them on their birthday? Or since all of ya'll are in happy marriages do you not even ever think about them?

Prepare yourselves for a downer. The only past love I dwell on is one who committed suicide. I don't think about what I miss by her being gone, but I think about what she missed by being gone. She's buried not far away, and I go see her often. Used to get very depressed around the date of her death, but time heals all wounds I suppose.

Oh wow Banana, that's tough. Sorry.

I still occasionally get angry phone messages from my ex on non-kid past issues so not if I can help it. I run with an ex-gf on occasion and we only talk about present day.

Banana I have never known anyone personally who has done that. That must be so awful.

No, and yes. There was only one before I got married to my first wife*, and I have no idea where she is or what became of her. Don't care.

* My Dad had a habit of introducing Mom as his 'first wife.' Also his only, as is mine.

Occasionally Think about, all the way back to some HS "loves".  Never tempted to contact.
In fact, my ex husband did send me an email several years ago.  He wanted to say he was sorry for being such an A hole.  He had been hit with some Karma.    I did not respond.
FWIW, I survived divorcing him by practicing the mantra,
Living a good life is the best revenge.  It has come to fruition.  Dave and I enjoy a good life with each other.  We area great pair.   I figure it took some crap to make me into who I am, so I thank those in my past now and then in my thoughts and prayers.

And Banana, Glad you can go and have a talk with your friend's memory now and then. I talk to my Mom's grave. Mostly to tell her thanks and that I understand and appreciate more every year.

So far I haven't lost my first love.

We used to keep in touch on our birthdays but no longer do. We do still reach out to inform of events we feel the other may want to know, such as the passing of my grandmother, the passing of a cat we had together, etc. We essentially grew into adulthood together over the course of a decade, more than a quarter of our lives. I still live and work in areas we once frequented so it's hard not to be reminded of those times, but we ended amicably and have nothing but good wishes for each other.
