well i guess that’s over.
him with his “i see your selfish and only care about what u want. Ur not ready for kids and i honestly don’t know if your ready 4 a relationship. don’t worry. i won’t be bothering you anymore. i wish you nothing but the best. your a great person and i have been fortunate to know you. bye” two-part text message.
me with my “wow.” reply.
and there you have it. i’ve known him since i was 16.
that’s like a decade. that’s back before i knew i was a journalist. and before i knew i was a vegetarian. before i even had a driver’s license. before i was me.
but over jumbo slices of pizza and small sodas this afternoon, we knew. both of us knew. us trying to keep at this on-again, off-again thing was not even worth the pleasantries anymore.
so we’ve moved on.
and it’s over.
i was sad for about three seconds.
but im good now.
seriously. so. good.
