Lizz and I have come to a difficult decision after both admitting to what has been there under the surface li: we’ve been drifting apart for a while now.
We chose to give things a good last try a couple of weeks ago. We celebrated our second year of going out with each other during this time. It was nice to reach such a long time, but we both realised that it still wasn’t working.
We had a conversation about everything recently and decided that we’d both prefer to have an amicable break-up now while we’re still friends than run the risk of leaving it for too long and end up hating each other. The next few weeks are going to be stressful for both of us, but we both think it’s the right thing to do, and that’s the important thing.
It’s always sad when a relationship comes to an end, but I feel like at least with us doing things this way both of us can be satisfied by the fact that we’re not arguing, and we’re resolving our issues with consideration for each other.
So yeah, two years together and it was a hell of a lot of fun! There are lots of fond memories there for me.
Some random highlights off the top of my head
- Buying a house together
- Going on holiday to various places
- A first date at a science museum (we’re so cool)
- Lots of gigs
- Both of us getting new jobs
- Living in one room, sleeping on an inflatable mattress just to be together
- Trips to Ikea, buying so much furniture before checking it would fit in the car
- Inside jokes like “Two slices”
There are far too many other things to list in full.
