I doubt you’re getting many love letters this Valentine’s Day. Don’t get excited — this isn’t one, either. But since you paid my Valentine a visit last month, I’d like to get a few things off my chest.
Our story was tricky enough without you. We met toward the end of our senior year of high school and really hit it off, only to leave for colleges hundreds of miles apart just a few short months later. We tried the long distance thing, which I’m sure even you would say was a bad idea. It only ever got harder. We tried keeping in touch while we dated other people without much luck, and we eventually drifted into what we now fondly refer to as “radio silence” before reconnecting at a mutual friend’s wedding (cliché, I know) in 2011.
