I have been keeping a secret. A sad secret that still brings tears to my eyes when I’m alone.
But suffice to say, Anth and I have broken up.
It feels like the end of an era. Anth was the most amazing boyfriend. We had a lot of really happy times together. The memories right now make my heart ache and eyes burn.
I remember when I first started this blog and felt so optimistic about our chances. But in reality, long distance relationships are freaking hard. And the secret that I’ve been keeping from you is how hard I was struggling with the distance. How hard it was not to see my man every day, to touch him, to talk to him and look into his eyes.
Unfortunately life is tugging us in opposite directions towards conflicting dreams. I really admire Anth for shooting for the moon. He is a guy that is going places. But it is so hard being apart from him.
I am not going to go into the detail of our breakup out of respect for the amazing two-year-relationship that we shared. Anth was more than just a boyfriend to me. He was my rock, my closest friend, my trip buddy, my biggest supporter..
I will really miss the man that I have spent over 600 days of my life with.
