He left me, I was heartbroken. Then we got married and we each had children on our side. We had to wait until May 12, 2016 to meet again. He was single, I was recently divorced. In the meantime, I had become the boss of my box and open to a story. He thought he was closing a chapter that he had never quite closed when he saw me again. In fact, we felt for each other the same physical attraction, the same surge of love as in our youth. The first evening of our reunion, in shock, we did nothing. A month after Tomer proposed to me. On November 25, 2017, I said yes to him and my life came together. We had missed each other. When I thought about him the whole time we were apart, I felt like I was indulging in a guilty pleasure. Today every night, when I fall asleep, I know that I am in my place. He is 47 years old, I am 48, professionally we are stronger together. In our lifetime, it felt like we had gone to a gourmet restaurant and taken the starter without ever having tasted the dishes. It’s been six years that we live a love of youth in an adult body. »
