Did I do the right thing?
02 August, 2008
A while ago a wrote my story here. It was called " I want to let go but...." The long and the short of it was that I asked a girl that I grew very close to out but was turned down. She wanted to be my friend, and we grew very close, she told me things that she didn't even tell her family. I believe that I became one of her best friends. She always said I was the nicest guy she knew. There was of course a problem though. Every night after we spent time together, I would go home and would get a small hope of a relationship with her, and I knew that just wasn't going to happen. It was very painful every night to squash that hope. I honestly didn't know what to do. I couldn't keep doing things this way.
So I came to a decision. If I continued down this path I would lose my mind. So I decided I couldn't see her anymore, that I would cut contact with her. I did not want to do this but I felt I had to. I wrote her a long letter full of reasons why I was doing this. I cried my eyes out as I wrote it. I really didn't want to do this but I couldn't move on otherwise.
So last night I picked her up from work and we went out and had a great time. As I took her home I dreaded what I had to do. Before I let her out of the car, I told her, she of course looked shocked. She left, and I drove to my best friend's house and cried at his house for a while.
I let her know, that It was nothing that she did, that I was just to weak hearted. I am going to miss her. I want to know, was there another way? Did I do the right thing? I would love some advice. Please.
