Gerald broke up with me in, quite possibly, the best way EVER. we didn't have a fight, there was no unnecessary name calling... none of that utter tripe. and he didn't want to do it either, but we talked it out and reasoned that it's for the best right now since our current circumstances seem to be plotting against us ever meeting up in person at all, much less on a frequent basis.
it hurts like hell, but we're not ruling out the possibility of getting back together in the event that our circumstances improve, so there's hope. plus, we're going to remain friends. there's just no other way we're going to have it.
