I don’t think anyone really understands how relationships work. The ups and downs, the arguments and misunderstandings, and communication.
A year or so ago, I met a wonderful man from France online. We got to be great friends and met in real life. We even had periods of infatuation for each other.
Today, I closed the lid on our friendship after a series of exchanges that made me feel that he was taking my love/kindness for granted. I feel empowered to have taken the decision myself.
So, good luck, my friend. I hope this post will be a warning and a reminder for me and my friends to not take anyone for granted.
