Today we’re offering up a something a little different. Today’s piece is from ‘Consumingtheart,’ a long time reader, first time contributor to the Urban Dater. Today she’s going to provide us with a very personal, heart-felt, goodbye letter. I’ve always been fascinated with the notion of a “Dear John” letter. Writing a letter provides an excellent forum for sorting through our thoughts, revisiting them, and putting them to paper… er… email; makes me want to play Lucinda Williams’s ‘Out of Touch.’ Anyway, I hope you guys enjoy and do let us know what you think in the comments below! – Alex
Hey! My guess is I’m sitting right in front of you right now, and you’re wondering why I don’t just talk to you. Well, the main reason is because I don’t want to mess this up. I’m afraid if we just talk, I’ll miss something and beat myself up on my way home for forgetting. I want to thank you for the things you’ve taught me.
