I’ve never been the one to end things with a person I’ve been getting close to romantically/sexually before. It was uncharted territory, telling [New Guy] that I just didn’t think things were going to work out. This is not a position I’ve had sympathy for in the past, the person who has to tell someone else that hey, you’re great and all, but I…actually no longer want to invest time or energy into you being a part of my life in any capacity. That shit is difficult.
But it is done, and I feel relieved. Things took too long to get started, I think, and we didn’t have much in common. 6 or 7 weeks of texting and we met once? And he cancelled on me twice. These are not ways to win me over.
I mostly just thought he was cute and talked a good game, but real talk, I am looking for things that are more substantive than that.
This has been a growing moment.
