My longest relationship just ended a week ago, it lasted for 2 months and she was the best woman I have ever been attached to. I had set my self goals during this relationship.
In that 2 months I opened every door for her.
I paid for every outing we went to.
I would pick her up from her place whenever possible.
I tried to surprise her with something nice every week.
Everything important about her I wrote down so I would not forget (what flowers she liked, food etc).
Left her alone when she needed to study.
Watched whatever movie she wanted to watch.
This was the best I had, this was me giving it my all. The best of me went into the relationship.
Yet it ended.
She was looking for someone with a different history to the one I had been given. Actions that were beyond my control, actions caused by other people in my young life, caused the end of us.
Over a decade later and the poor decisions of a selfish and sick man plague my life.
