bow wow dating - Dating an old flame again

D., but he noticed that Diane — a former beauty queen — was just "as gorgeous and classy" as she'd been 50 years earlier, when they'd dated at the University of North Dakota.

Thoughtful, too: When Marv's mother died a few months later, Diane sent her condolences.

But however long-lost loves reunite — a social site, a dating site, a phone call, a note or even a chance meeting at a reunion or a funeral — there's an allure in rekindling a simmering flame. When Debby Klein agreed to have dinner four years ago with her old buddy Jeff Stiel, she was unclear if it was a date or just two old camp-counselor friends getting together at the urging of a mutual friend.

So their 2014 wedding invitation featured a 1981 photo taken after the pair won a highly competitive mixed-doubles camp tennis tournament. Janice says her father said, "Stop seeing that boy, or I'll cut off your tuition — and you damn well better listen to me." As Janice explains, "The Willsons were East Coast people with important careers.

My father was a street-smart rough guy who didn't think intellectual knowledge was worth anything." Janice's mother's support notwithstanding, the young lovers were unable to make it work. Prentiss went on to graduate from Harvard Law School and practice in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The couple manages to get together about three times a week.
