Yes, actually I am. They've been in contact for a few years. She tried for a year along the way to break it off with him but couldn't get him completely out of her head and her heart. As much as his hesitation has frustrated her, she loves him and longs for him even though she also loves me and is happy to be with me.
I sometimes wonder if someone that unwilling to take action on his own behalf is worthy of her. But she really thinks he is and I'll take her word for it... she's usually has a better sense of what people are all about than I do.
