It was great. It didn't last. We ended things after two weeks. We still remain friends.
People can't seem to handle this here. Relationships are supposed to be a serious deal. I was supposed to have DTR-ed three times at this point and taken a trip to the temple to talk about our future. However, just when they were getting used to the idea of me having a boyfriend we ended things. This confuses people. And thus, I have had to explain. Over and over and over again.
The telling and re-telling of the whys and hows and whens of the breakup has been more difficult and exhausting than the actual break up itself.
Perhaps, I should just take my friend's advice and when someone asks me about it, just tell them:
"We broke up. It's alright though, we still occasionally make love."
I think that will shut them up. For a while at least.
Welcome to my life.
