Could anyone help me find someone very special to me?

When I was 17 I fell in love with a foreign exchange student from Wroclaw, Poland (this was in 1997)

It was a tragic love because we both knew she would have to leave in June but we didn't care. Nothing could separate us and we thought we would be able to maintain the relationship with an ocean between us with this hope of seeing each other again.

About a year after she left we were both deep in depression. The distance wore on us so much that she decided she couldn't say I love you anymore. Shortly after that she called me for the last time saying how she was suicidal from our separation. I haven't heard from her since. I sent letter after letter after letter and called as much as I could. I never received any reply.

When Katrina hit New Orleans, I lost everything. I lost her old letters, I lost her address, I lost her phone number. I didn't care about losing the house, I only cared about losing the only proof I had that she existed. I was crushed to have no way to contact her again.

For the past 3 years, I've searched her name in google with no results. At least once a month I would search for her without ever having any luck becoming more and more depressed about it. Today I was lucky.

I searched her name and found a WAYN profile for her. Her name, location, and age all match. There is no other information or any pictures but I know it must be her.

I signed up for the website and sent a message but a few days passed by with no reply. I know she's alive though. I know she never went through with it and I want to find her now more than ever. I've been trying to learn polish and was planning on flying to Wroclaw with the only picture i have of her to try and find her but now that I know she's there maybe I can get her phone number and contact her.

I know this is a long shot but I have to find her now more than ever. It's a sign from God that I was able to find her now. It has to be. I did some searching and tried going through a bunch of websites but they were all dead ends. I even found and searched for her first name in Wroclaw and looked through the pictures/profiles that came up and none of them were her.

She never cared for the internet much and the few times we spoke online she contacted me from internet cafes. If anyone can help please contact me. I will give you her first and last name but I will not post it publicly. I still love her too much to possibly cause any harm to her. Yes after 11 years I still love her now as much as I did then. I've been broken and empty ever since I watched her fly away. This tiny ray of hope that I might see her again has given me more happiness than I have had in the last 11 years.

Please someone help me. Even if it is just a link to a working white pages for Wroclaw. I have to talk to her again. I have to know she's okay.

sorx, I see you've already tried this. If you've got her adress you can try to look for in the phone book. I think it's possible to download the electronic version from the net.

I know her last name but do not wish to post it publicly for her safety. I actually searched her last name and Wroclaw in google shortly after posting this and came up with an ad selling a wedding dress and it appears maybe that is her and she did get married. i guess as sad as that makes me i am still happy to know she is still alive. i sent an email to the contact person for the wedding dress asking a few questions. perhaps that will be her. in a way though i am hoping it's not. i have spent 11 years in depression never able to get over her with only the hope of seeing her and holding her in my arms again to keep me going. to know she got over me so easily and married without even searching for me really makes my heart hurt. i feel like tom hanks in castaway to finally come home and find his soulmate has found another to replace him.

Is she the one who was selling the dress? If she sold her wedding dress, she probably isn't married anymore.

yes she was selling the dress but in the ad she had her name with the hyphen. wouldn't that mean she's still married?

i think she's still married...many women after the wedding sell the dress... and also, i would say that it is actually the girl you are looking for because she's got such a beautiful and rare (in Poland) name... so this name plus the last name, it'd be her...

what does her last name mean? do you know? she never spoke much of poland when we were together. she was actually so amazed at how i put her on a pedestal and paid for her meals. at first she thought i was trying to buy her but i think she realized i genuinely cared for her and those things were just showing her how much i care.

are women treated lesser in poland? i really hate to think she's stuck as some married housewife treated poorly :(
