Sure we had challenging times as well (like for example whenever we would be going away on trips, he’d wait until we were about to touch down to start a 4 day trip together and then express his doubts about our relationship) but you know nothing major. It didn’t matter that he was telling me that we weren’t a good fit because I was in love.
What I realized after it was all over and done was that I had been in love with the idea of being in a relationship. It’s not to say I didn’t have feelings for him of course but what I couldn’t see at the time was that he didn’t have those feelings for me. My mother actually saw it the very first time she met him.
I didn’t even understand the basics of a real relationship at the time and this is just one of many things I learned in the experience.
I also made a really good friend. FriendS actually – did I mention how awesome his parents are?
