If you asked me a couple months back, I'd tell you I secretly planned on moving to Kentucky sometime late spring or early summer of this year to be closer to my newly appointed boyfriend.
But all of that has changed now.
We talked on the phone for a long time last week and both decided it would be easier on him if we were "just friends".
While I understood where he was coming from, I still believe we could've made it work if we tried harder and fought for it.
We both love and care for each other but I don't know what else to do.
If he pulls back and feels we're not as compatible as we once were, what choice do I have but to honor that? After all, it takes two people for a relationship to succeed, not one.
Little indicators along the way made me question if his feelings were changing but I assumed it was part of the progression from courting--a cutesy type of affection--to a quieter and deeper love....or maybe I just didn't want to accept that things weren't going well.
When all is said and done, we didn't see it through all the way.
We gave up and ended it.
And I can't help feeling like we failed at love.
