Hardly a Honeymoon

It was a long week, but I'm glad I went. As well as seeing my parents, and relatives, it gave Nancy and I a chance to push the fast-forward button and see the future. And the future wasn't pretty.

The "math" roughly works out as "knew eachother for four weeks", then "booked the trip", then "got to know eachother for four more weeks." I told a friend afterwards that I felt stupid for rushing so quickly. They told me that at least I had tried, and that was the important part.

And I agree. I don't really feel stupid for trying. I can't regret that. And Nancy has some pretty amazing qualities. I can't deny that. But it's clear to us now that our qualities don't combine.

So I'm focusing on two apects... as least we tried, and no one got seriously injured.

I am glad you could part as friends. I am sorry you are not more. Don't either of you give up. There is someone out there for both of you, even if it's not each other.

Some people, like us, are better off as friends ;-)

Talk to you soon

Quilly, I believe that too! (But now to find who.)

Nancy, yes. It's a shame we didn't get a chance to do a post-mortum investigation. I'm not sure if the problem was we were too different or too similar. ;) But as long as we agree "friends" is best I think we'll be fine.

Very scarey the way we posted at the exact same second... but not surprising.
