AN OPEN LETTER TO THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY

  1. I told a friend at dinner on Sunday about the best date and the most memorable date I had ever been on.
  2. Both included you.
  3. We haven't talked in over a year and part of that is my fault.
  4. I was stupid and selfish and didn't fight for what could have been more. I realize how foolish I was now.
  5. But I found myself getting lost in the memories of what we once were.
  6. I couldn't explain why we weren't dating anymore because it just stopped.
  7. Did we ghost each other out of fear?
  8. You were moving and I was stagnant.
  9. I went to bed, wondering how you were.
  10. I looked you up on instagram to see what your life was like now.
  11. I had the internal struggle of trying to figure out if you hated me or even remembered me and eventually clicked "follow".
  12. We spent all day texting and catching up.
  13. I felt comfortable.
  14. It felt natural.
  15. I'm glad you're doing well.
  16. I'm glad you kept the conversation going when it could have easily fizzled out.
  17. I'm glad you extended an invite to grab a drink if I'm ever in your city.
  18. Because I can't help but wonder what could have been?
  19. Either way, I'm glad to have you back in my life.
