    And He Doesn't Know It Yet...

    I hurt someone and I haven't told him I did it yet.  I want to tell him what I did before he finds out but I know he is going to be hurt and disappointed.  He will know soon enough I guess.  He may even know now and just hasn't said anything to me.

    I dated him for four years.
