I met her approximately six years ago when one of her friends came over to babysit my little sister, and she immediately swept me off of my feet (and I mean this literally, she knocked me off my feet and onto the floor, haha. This memory still makes me smile.) It didn't take long for me to see how awesome she truly was, but when I realized I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her. I kept this a secret from her because I didn't want to risk ruining what we had at the time, which was a friendship where we were there for each other to talk.
>Part of me says give her time to see if she'll choose me as what she really wants while remaining her friend
>After severing virtually all contact
How did this come to fruition? Details
I guess the best way to explain it, because I don't really want to get into the nitty-gritty, is that we had a falling out.
I'm going on a walk around town tonight with her, her sister, and her sister's boyfriend. Hope I don't make too much an ass of myself :).
Did she tell you what it was about your relationship that made her so unhappy? Because if not, that would be a useful thing to know--if you know what mistakes you've made you can avoid repeating them.
