It tears me up a little. I had known him for several years, and we had exchanged many letters... but we had never met in person.
We attempted a long-distance relationship for about a year, but it didn't work out. But he said he would always be my friend.
So I moved on, got married, had a child, etc. And I stayed in contact with this friend.
I texted him when I could, and talked to him on the phone once in a while...
but finally, I guess he couldn't handle it anymore.
So today he said that we shouldn't be friends anymore.
Apparently, he never really got over me & it must've hurt too much to keep talking to me.
I had this happen a couple of years ago with another male friend... and eventually, he emailed me like nothing had happened!
So I guess I'm kind of hoping that will happen again with this friend... but I'm not holding my breath.
I will miss him. He will always have a special place in my heart.
