I know that we’ve not seen much of each other recently, you’ve probably been wondering what’s going on and where you stand. It’s true, we have grown apart, but I feel you should know, it’s not you – it’s me.
When we first got together things were really great – everything was new and it was all full of excitement. We spoke every day, sometimes more than once a day, and I would tell you what I’d done with my time, show you photos and I would even share my innermost thoughts with you. So deep was our mutual appreciation others would even comment on what they saw.
But something happened. We started talking less, conversation became stilted and before I knew what was happening, I was reading other people’s blogs. Please don’t blame yourself, there was nothing you could have done differently, it’s just that I’m not ready for that kind of commitment right now. You want more from me but I’m like a bird. I need to fly. So if I visit a local beauty spot or see a great view I won’t beat myself up for forgetting my camera. If I make a great looking meal, I won’t feel guilty for scoffing it immediately before taking the time to take the perfect shot and if I spy a great bargain in a charity shop, I don’t have to tell you if I don’t want to.
Don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy spending time with you. For starters you’re a great listener, low maintenance and your memory is amazing, but I can’t guarantee that I will always use correct grammar and that my pictures will always be in focus.
Please don’t try to change me. This blog will never be A Beautiful Mess, but I promise I will try harder to make it work. For example, I saw these and thought of you.
I love you, but I’m not in love with you, so I think it’s better that we remain just friends.
I promise we’ll speak soon
