The girl I've dated for just over four years broke up with me. She claims she no longer felt a spark, and due to differences that had gradually arisen in our personalities, she felt that our relationship was more of a pain than a pleasure.
I was warm whereas she was more of the distant type. I loved hugs and kisses whereas she could do without them. I loved to spend as much time as possible with her, and even cost myself some friends to make sure I was always there for her.
Without giving away too much or reopening wounds that are beginning to close, the fact of the matter is that I'm still in love with her... I probably always will be. There's a chance that after some time apart we may become friends again, and we both stated that we wouldn't completely rule out a relationship in the future.
I just don't want her to become a memory. We've been through a lot and the idea of spending life without her, despite our differences, makes me physically ill. Just like I said in six words, I don't want to say bye.
