An old “love” letter I never sent

The word love is in quotes because the letter is hardly about love. I’m referring to a letter I wrote to a woman (or rather I letter I wrote in my journal, addressed to a woman) I was dating at the time. At the time, I thought I would transcribe it to a loose sheet of paper and give it to her, but that never happened. So the thoughts and frustrations and joys I had in my life coming from my relationship with her are all contained in this 2-page journal entry.

Why am I telling you this? Well, yesterday I began the process of typing the letter into a blog post. I got about halfway through and thought, “What’s the point?” I don’t know if anyone out there needs to read this, much less wants to read it. Not only that, as I read it over, I was kind of a jerk! I’m not saying some of my frustration wasn’t valid, but it was NOT a love letter. More of a break-up letter, if anything.

To sum up our relationship, it was really good. But she didn’t want to date me. I know that happens every day but the frustrating part was that she had recently dated a guy that didn’t treat her well, and she broke up with him multiple times. I didn’t understand why he got so many chances, and she wouldn’t give me even a single chance.

Here I go getting frazzled again!! If you want to find out what was in the letter I never sent, comment below and I’ll write it out, and post it in a future blog. I am willing to put myself out there because surely I come across as a little bit of a jerk. But now you can’t say that because I already did 🙂

Do you have any letters you never sent to a former significant other? Comment below and also let me know if you want to know more about my letter.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. We tend to be harder on ourselves than our peers would perceive of the same situation. Do you feel the same way about the situation now, as you did when you wrote the letter?

    1. Really good question! I do feel the same way, in that I believe I should have been given a chance. But at the end of the day she probably knew we were not a match, because a woman’s intuition is usually correct!
