You came out of nowhere.

I’ve never met someone as kind-hearted, as faithful and funny and genuine and mature. You’d be just right. I wouldn’t be afraid of loving you, I think.

And for the first time, I would have said something. I would tell you, I think. As scary as it is, I would. If only, if only, if only.

But the time isn’t right, and I don’t want to hurt you.

So let’s just be friends, okay? Good, good friends.

I can't love this enough. I'm currently on the other end of this situation and I would like to think They had similar kind feelings. Good luck OP.

I can't help but wonder and hope that I know who this is. I'm just dreaming though.

I dont mean to get too personal but may I ask why the timing was so bad? I'm genuinely curious as to what sort of life circumstance can get in they way of such feelings.

Honestly, I don’t want to burden them. I’m moving far away, and although I’ll come back occasionally, a long distance relationship is too much. We’re too young. It’s too soon and I’d rather let it play out slowly than jump blindly and hurt that person. If it’s meant to be, I’m willing to wait. And if it’s meant to be, I’ll know when.
