Don’t ask me how I remembered our conversation but, oh did I. I know this is just text to all that is reading this and you cannot sense his tone but I need your help. I am at a stand still. I have only known this guy a month and he is asking me to wait. Really, he is asking me to wait and see if this other girl will work out or not. Should I believe him? Should I let go? Is he even telling the truth or did he just reject me? What would you do in my situation? Signed: confused-frustrated-lonely girl.
GUY: Basically the only thing that could have gotten in our way – has. This is so hard please believe that. Someone I have a lengthy past with has surfaced. I’m sorry.
ME: No worries, I am use to this.
GUY: In my dreams you’d give me time to figure this out. My heart is literally aching right now. I respect you too much to play you. No way I would do that.
ME: Well to be honest you have me in tears. I will give an easy out if you want it.
GUY: No. No. No. I’ve never felt like such shit. I am at a loss. You have to understand these are extraordinary circumstances. I go back to grade school with her. I am totally confused.
ME: Shit this is hard to say – you should see what happens with her or else you will always wonder.
GUY: Please give me some time. Please please please. Part of me did not want to tell you but my conscience knew you deserve the truth. I need a little time please.
ME: All I can think to say is – you promised.
GUY: As bad as this is, it would have been way worse stringing you along getting deeper and then dropping a bomb. Distorted as it seems I am trying to not hurt you.
ME: Look the deal is I just met you and you have known her since childhood. See where she takes you. She might be your other half. I am here for you if you need me but I cannot promise I will wait.
