I believe it but my someone is now married to someone else.
Deja-vu... happened to me. Was smitten with this girl, she seemed really into me. We'd met at the end of my freshman year spring semester in college. I didn't have the guts to get her contact info to keep in touch over the break. When I came back, I'd mustered up the courage to ask her out. I'll never forget that day when I looked her up, she glowed with all of this enthusiasm in seeing me, and when I took the chance to ask her out I learned the horrible reality of doom. Over the summer she met a guy who went to our university. He got to her ahead of me.

We kept in touch via "group friendship" over the next couple of years. They stayed together and when I decided to head off for the USAF, the last I saw of them was their engagement party. Maybe the pent up anticipation I had over the summer made me desire her more than I should have, and the slam in the face of "you're too late" made it worse. I was so bitter with fate for quite a long time after that...
