“I did like you. Just not enough to do what it took to make it work.”
Wow! Now that must have hurt to hear, but that is as straight-forward and honest as it comes. No ambiguity. For my personality that would make it much easier to move on.
Our boredom and selfish need for distractions (I’m guilty of these things, too) combined with the ease and laziness of technology allows for us to “breadcrumb” someone with little to no price. (Except there is a price, of course, to the person on the other end who we are leading on.)
Thank you so much for reading and responding, Sandria!
