My Adoration Knows No Bounds

Posted on Fri, Apr 15, 2011 at 4:00 AM

I think you're wonderful. I've had a thing for you for a little while, but after the few dates with your friend, it would be tacky to pursue anything with you. I had my chance all those moon ago and let it pass me by. Now that things are said and done and you have a girlfriend and I have gone out on a series of dates with your friend, I doubt it will ever happen for us. So I'm moving on, despite being able to see us happily married, with kids, and eventually sitting on a porch on a nice sunny day in our twilight years, watching our grandchildren play. I just want you to know, before I shut the feelings off, how wonderful you are. You are kind, decent, incredibly intelligent and someone I'll always root for. Thanks for existing. You make the world a better place just by being in it. —Goodbye Girl
