Lost Love

What I said:

"I love you.  I really do.  But, I think since we were best friends for so long, that is what it still is.  I don't want to hurt you, but we are going our separate ways anyway.  You are so wonderful and I know you will meet someone who will really be "in love" with you some day..."

What I should have said:

"I am SO IN LOVE WITH YOU, but I am so scared to be away from you!  You are my best friend and I want to come with you.  My horrible family has pledged not to pay for my education if I don't go to my college and I don't think I can handle being in it on my own.  Please never leave me - I want to be with you for the rest of my life....."

Yeah, give him a call. My wife did, thirty four years ago.

I hope you find the courage to share your true feelings. Even if you can't be at the same college, it may be worth it to have his support from a distance.
