The long story short is that we wanted different things. We kind of avoided dealing with that for a while, but recently, circumstances have kind of brought things all up to the front. We both really love each other, but in our current situation, nothing was going to happen aside from lots of hurt feelings and fights.
Still, when people who care that deeply for each other can't find a way to make it work, it's always an incredibly sad thing.
Yea, it's an incredibly sad thing.
