Crushes: honestly too many to even think about
1st BF: Is still in my home town and is with a girl way younger. I am not sure if they have kids or not. He has a son with a girl who was one year older than me. (from a really small town). Unsure of job.. or if he even has one
2nd BF: Same, still in my hometown, married to a girl one year younger than me from same school (who ironically dated his younger brother before ending up with him!!) , they have 2 kids.

Oh my gosh. Mine is a terribly sad story. My high school boyfriend and I broke up in college after dating for almost 3 years. I started dating my hubby soon after. During this time I took a temporary internship out of state, so hubby and I were in a LDR. Ex-BF called me the week before I was due to come home and said that he was still in love with me and wanted to come and get me so we could be together. I told him no, I was in love with hubby (BF then) and that he should concentrate on the relationship he was in (he had a new GF at the time). He was crushed, but we ended the conversation on good terms.
A few days later I came home from my internship and I received a call from my ex's current GF asking if I had talked to my ex. I said no. It turns out he had taken his own life that night! I feel terrible about it and definitely feel partially responsible for his death because I know how hurt he was by me telling him that I didn't want to be with him. I know he had many other issues, but it doesn't change the fact that I feel partially responsible. Ugh.
Sorry to ruin the mood.

Mine died in an avalanche. No joke. In Alaska last fall. They found his body this spring. He was always a risk-taker so it surprised no one, but heartbreaking nonetheless!

I had a wonderful boyfriend the last couple years of high school, but we broke up when I went to college ... growing pains of a big transition. I met my husband 9 months later.
We're still friends on FB (though we rarely interact on there, minus a rare comment or like). He is married now with two kiddos. They seem happy, which makes me happy.

I always stayed in touch with my high school boyfriend. We worked together on and off over the years. He got married to a girl I don't know.
When I was pregnant, I called him to tell him, and he told me his wife was expecting too! We were due the same day! It was unreal! Then sadly, she miscarried. They had another pregnancy later that also ended up in more heartbreak. I haven't really spoken to him since. I just don't know what to say. But I should make contact.

HS boyfriend's life took a major spiral downward after we broke up due to his drinking and anger problems. That summer, he quit trade school, lost his job, and got some girl pregnant. I saw him last summer at an outdoor concert while visiting family. TBH, he was barely recognizable he had put on so much weight (he used to body build). I found out then that he was working a dead end, low-paying job. It made me sad since he had such plans when we were dating.
Edited for brevity. I also just FBed him. He and the mother of his kids got married this fall, after all these years.

HS BF- moved to LA which was only about 20 min from our hometown. I believe he is still single and works in the financial industry. He was a bit of a tool so we did not keep in touch.
College BF- married to the girl he cheated on me with. They have two young kids and he is in law enforcement. We kept in touch here and there for years after we split (it was a long serious relationship) but I changed my number when I moved and I don't think he ever got a hold of it. Plus Im not on FB so I really don't know whats going on with anyone from HS/college that I am not close with!
@schubr03: That is heartbreaking Im so sorry that you have to bear that burden.

My crush x5 years, we stayed friends through it all! We're not super close, but he came to my wedding and I attended his! He's married with a child and working as a pastor.
My only serious boyfriend besides DH I started dating my senior year of high school. We're not in touch (though I am with his family), but he's married as well with a daughter and another child on the way. He has had a rough go at it with losing his jobs a few times in the past few years. Not sure what he's up to now.
@schubr03: oh my gosh, that is devastating. I am so, so sorry.

Um, I think he lives in the same state as me (neither of us grew up here) but other than that I really don't know! Ha. We had a nasty break up then saw each other once in college and were on good terms, and after that I have no idea! Probably for the best!

High school crush: married with 3 kids and lives in same area as me but rarely run into.each other. He's a dispatcher for an airline. He was headed down a bad path in HS (drugs, theft) so I'm happy he's doing well.
BF1: No idea. He was in military intelligence and when we broke up he was headed to TX for an assignment. That was 16 years ago though, so who knows where he is now.
BF2: He is an attorney and last I checked was married and has 2 kids.
BF3: married him!
I'm always impressed when people stay friends after a relationship. I apparently manage to burn bridges really well, ha.
