My husband didn’t go to my 10-year reunion because he was out of town on business so this will be the first chance for me to introduce my husband to old friends and boys that I made out with in high school.
I say made out with because I didn’t have sex in high school. However, for the sake of this discussion I think the question should include boys you may have fooled around heavily with or had sex with in high school.
I personally think unless it was someone you really dated for a long time, you just completely ignore that you kissed or fooled around with the person and just introduce the person as a friend. (I have the same rule on Facebook. Everyone is just a friend. No past.)
Now I might would whisper to Michael before or after meeting the person, “Hey I kissed that guy.”
On a related issue, you often hear about old classmates getting together after the reunion.
We have several friends (divorced and single) that got together with people they either knew or dated in high school after their reunion. I think it’s really easy to see why. You’re on a short-hand basis with these people. They’ve known you for such a long time and used to know you really well.
Our class president and his wife were both classmates and friends of mine in school. It’s been funny working with them on the reunion because it’s just like no time passed at all. At one point during the planning the wife was yelling at her husband and then she put him on the phone for me to yell at him too. It was just like we were in high school again.
I think it’s easy to see how relationships could bloom from easy old friendships.
So what do you think: How much do you reveal to your spouse about your past relationships in high school? How do you introduce a significant other or a hook up to your spouse at a reunion?
On the corollary question: Did you get together with a former classmate at or after a reunion? (Hopefully not while you’re married per DB’s description the other day.)
