Sorry M, I’m going to post this. Not because it doesn’t have meaning, but because it does. If you read this and want me to take it down, just let me know.
Yesterday I saw M walking nonchalantly in the Mission as I was driving to dinner. I didn’t think he saw me, but when I logged into chat last night, I had a message:
M: Has it been long enough? Do you really hate me that much?
I guess he did see me. I wasn’t ready to respond last night, but this morning I felt like I should. It has been long enough.
Me: I don’t hate you. I think I saw you today in the mission.
M: Ha, yes you probably did since I live here now. Ok, well I guess I was hoping you’ve moved on so we can be friends again but I realize that’s probably just selfish on my part. But I get it.
Me: I did move on. To be completely honest though, I still don’t want to be friends. I’m happy with where my life is now. And I wish you the best.
M: Yep, get it. Ditto
