A peaceful breakup?

“I don’t expect you to return the favor,” the note said, “but I just wanted to let you know that I have been watching you for two years, and I think I like you.”

I didn’t really know the guy who sent me the note, but I jumped at the opportunity to go out with him, thinking that I had finally found my “prince.” I felt like he was what I’d been searching for all through high school—some guy who would be everything to me, like I’d always seen in movies. I’d dated other guys in the past, but no one had ever turned out to be that perfect person who totally understood me and who I could lean on 100 percent.

I figured I could get to know him if we went out, and everything started slowly at first. Then our relationship became public, and I even thought I loved him. But as the year went on, I didn’t love who he was becoming.
