“Naturally, I have been thinking about our conversation since it ended. There are, of course, no magic words to create a spark if one does not exist. But so that I can rest a little easier, I wanted to get this off my chest: saying that I have to keep all of your “instructions” straight in my head was a joke. I did not feel like you were trying to change me, and you shouldn’t either. I like being cajoled into trying new things, including cheese (as long as it’s not too mushy).
Being confident in a relationship comes with time. Some get there sooner than others. If you lived my life, you would be more cautious too. But I was getting there. I had some issues early on because I would have to call you twice before you returned a call. That stuff drives me NUTS (again due to my past), but I didn’t want to say anything because I did not want to come off too needy. It did, however, cause me to doubt. Frankly, that doubt was evaporating when you called.
Asking instead of doing is a subset (or symptom) of confidence. The only reason why I asked in the bedroom was because you said that you didn’t want to have sex, and some people (though certainly not Bill Clinton) have an expansive definition of that.
I wish we could have hung out through May. We’d still have to take a break.
Thank you for reading this. You’re worth (at the very least) this small effort. No need to respond.
I loved your smile.
All the best,”
I just didn’t have anything left to respond with.. what would be the point? to continue the dialog would be futile as I was no longer interested.. It wasn’t fair to lead him to believe otherwise.
