The ex-girlfriend I referenced in the previous post that showed up in my dream very, very randomly a few weeks ago, well she called me....out of the blue.
A few days ago, I think on March 29th, I was awakened by my phone ringing. I rolled over to look at the number and upon realizing I didn't recognize the number I ignored it and went back to bed.
An hour or so later when I actually got up I saw there was a voice mail. So naturally I listened to it. Low and behold it was the ex-girlfriend from many years ago leaving me a message. A very random message at that.
This is the third or fourth time she has done this to me. Last time I actually saw her when she and her sister showed up at the bar I worked at in San Francisco. This was the one time where it was o.k because her and I had talked before hand so there had been mutual contact. It was a bit of a surprise that she showed up at my work but it was a pleasant surprise.
After that in 2010 when I was in Texas, I got a voice mail from her saying that she had a random dream about me and thought she should call. She left no return number because she thought it was better if we didn't talk (On a side note, she is married now with kids).
Then again around my birthday in December of 2011 she sent me a direct tweet wishing me a happy birthday. I did actually send her a tweet back saying thank you but she never responded again.
And now most recently this voice mail about checking to make sure everything was ok with me and that she hoped life was treating me well. It appeared something maybe happened to a close friend of hers that made her feel the need to reach out to me. I didn't and haven't talked to her since she left the message so I'm not actually sure what the situation was.
It's really all harmless, but I can't help but think it's a little selfish on her part, right? I mean what if for some reason I was still hung up on her a little or something and since she has obviously moved on it does seem a bit unfair to just keep popping up randomly every year or so and make contact but not allow contact to be made back.
Anyways, I thought it extremely odd to get a phone call from her only a few weeks after I had a really random dream about her. That's life, I suppose.
