Brooklyn Heights | Brooklyn | New York City

I was biking around Brooklyn this one afternoon aimlessly just to enjoy my day off when I saw a guy, on a bike as well, that I had met at No Parking one night many months prior. He was with another guy so I didn’t pay them no mind and I am glad that he didn’t attempt to initiate a conversation in passing. There are some men out there that you pass in the night at a bar you just wish to forget about. He was a nice guy and all - made me breakfast the next morning, etc - just no chemistry really there to pursue anything more than what it was.
I swung around the Heights and up onto the promenade to enjoy the view. After about 20 minutes sitting there people watching, there they came again. This time with a nod and smile. I was like <in my head> ‘stop stalking me.’
I often hear from people who move to the city from smaller towns that back home everyone knew their business and it was just a nightmare for them. I believe it to be true really no matter where you live, big or small city. Even in a city such as New York, the circles can be tight. For the most part, however, you can avoid certain people or situations a bit easier. I always thought to myself with my ex, Francisco, that we never socialized in the same circles and therefore would probably not see one another unless an effort was made. Well, paths do cross whether you hope they do or don’t.
