Ok... I have quite the story to tell!
In April I started dating a man named Vince. He was wonderful and we had some great times together although we ere very opposite. I was looking for a relationship and he was not. I am a artsy and creative girl where he is a pilot and likes to be out with the guys having drinks. We did have a lot of fun though and shared a lot of laughs together! We ended up going our seperate ways after a few months of dating.
August 7th was the last time we spoke.
Four weeks ago I received a text message from an unknow number saying "Hey its Vince." My first reaction was "Why are you contacting me?" He explained to me that he was in an accident on August 13 and was getting better. Not believing him I called my father, who is a coroner in the city where Vince was in the accident. It turns out Vince was in a deadly plane crash where only him and pilot who was flying survived. My father was the coroner on his case. Vince was then in a three month coma and had just woken up from it a week prior to texting me and had full blown amnesia.... but remembered me.
Vince and I continued to text back and forth that evening and decided to meet the next day. When I went to meet him I was very scared. I didnt know what to expect. When I picked him up (as he cant drive for another while) he looked the same, but a lot thinner. We drove to a local restaurant and spent the night talking. It was amazing catching up and hearing about his recovery and what he knew about his accident. He then said to me "Remember how I didnt want a relationship before? Well I want one now." So we agreed on being a couple again. It has been four weeks since then and his recovery has been incredible!! We spend every evening together and Ive spent a few evenings in the hospital snuggling in his bed (He is now out of the hospital and living in a rehab facility and in January will be back in his own place). He has had all his surgeries and is recovery wonderfully! His memory is coming back and I am beyond excited for him!!! Its fantastic watching someone get excited when they remember their life.
So here is the kicker....
I fear he wil go back to his old life and want his old life back when he is better. He has said many times he cant wait until he is better and can have his old life back and be out drinking with his friends... but he also says he cant wait for his life back but with me in it. I am holding my feelings back as I do worry he will go back to his old ways once hes better. Am I being a total idiot? Or am I being realistic?
