I’m not sure if I have yet discussed this on here, but about a month ago now, Rose and I broke up.
I don’t want to discuss why exactly we started talking about the possibility or why we were both okay with it… at least not yet. I may revisit this subject in the future once I’ve put a bit more chronological distance between me and the breakup. I guess I just wanted to post this to explain where I’m at now, and so that I can actually discuss the fact that I’m dating around a bit in future posts…
One thing I’ve been working on lately is looking at the positive (an old habit that I’ve lost a bit of proficiency in over the years) instead of the negative. In this case, one of the positives is the relationship itself. Being with Rose for the past ~two and a half years made me very happy, and I’m very glad that I had the experience of what was, for the most part, a very successful and supportive relationship. Another positive, though, is that I now have the opportunity to date someone who lives near me, and that geographical distance doesn’t have to be a challenge I overcome in a new relationship if I do manage to find one.
Other than that, still writing… so, as always, thanks for reading.
