We were together for 8 years. We had a quarrel - he no longer wanted to see me - now 1 month later he sends the following - he is an aquarius I am a scorpion. Where do I go from here - I have always pictured myself growing old with him



Most of the anger has subsided but the hurt and frustration remains.

I too feel emotions for you but I also came to the conclusion that we would make far better friends than lovers. We each know each other probably better then we know ourselves. I knew the only way to get through to you was to take this drastic step. I know I don't want to play like that anymore. I want things to be easy and less stressful.

I truly would like to maintain a "best" friend relationship with you with the understanding that it is just best friends. I really do hate to use the words just and best friends in the same sentence but I believe it is waranted this time. Knowing the way you know me, this next sentence is probably going to rock your world, but I do not want to pursue an intimate relationship any longer. I want to be just your friend. We can meet for lunch, share stories about the kids, work, family and life. That is all I am prepared to offer. I want to see and go out with friends and colleagues. I want to date other people. I want you to see and go out with other friends and colleagues. I want you to date other people. I want to find happiness and internal peace and tranquility. I want my relationship(s) to be easy. I want you to find happiness and internal peace and tranquility. I want your relationship(s) to be easy. I want to restart liking myself and my surroundings. I want you to restart liking yourself and your surroundings.

We have eight plus years of history that encapsulated a lifetime worth of experiences. Minimally speaking I would welcome the opportunity to be friends but nothing more. I know in my heart of hearts that our life path intersected but the do not run parallel. Let me know if you're interested in maintaining the friendship that I speak of. Each knowing that potentially the other will end up with someone else. Be safe and healthy...
