Thank you everyone for your insights.
@IamDestr0n: Yes, without going into too much details, I told him this. We are too different as beings and what we want and strive for in a relationship is philosophically the same but differs in its execution. His needs make me unhappy. My needs make him unhappy. It just cannot be if it is not 100%.
@Homastj: I did love him and I knew he loved me. He cried when I told him these things. I am not really a crier. My heart froze a long time ago so... I don't feel as easy. It does hurt though.
@Gr8tswim: Thank you.
I feel better.
@Anocxu: Hehe, and here I thought you were ignoring me coz I may have been annoying you with my frequent posts.
Thank you for your kind words and such. I appreciate the kindness.
*Hugs* Yes I know it is out of the right intention, I just hate hurting others and making people cry. It's the one thing in life I seem to be REALLY good at.
@Jockbod84: Yes, I know. I gave him this speech. People are transient, like the leaves of a season-- here one moment, gone the next. Not everyone is a permanent feature in my life and I knew that his relationship with me would not be as such. He and I are too different to be the same. We are of similar essences but of different vibrations. He is the Light and I am the Dark, if that personifies us somewhat. He was a great person, he really was, but... we simply could not be with each other without stifling what the other was at heart. Neither one of us wants to surrender to being sublimated by face-value interactions. We want it all or not at all.
@TellMeMoar: Forsooth. Friends are difficult for me. I am not like many, or like any I seem to meet, really-- save for one. It was not that he was 'toxic' per se. It was that we were too different to be together. He would say things I did not care to hear. I was too isolating and distant for his tastes. I'm a Lone Wolf at heart. He's the Golden Retriever who will lick everyone's face. We understood each other but we can never be as such.
Thank you all once again.
