So, yep, that's happening. He says it's just for a few weeks to find himself. I say that if you announce to a person that having them depend on you emotionally is too much, request that they stop telling you about their day, and then hightail it to the other side of the country, you have officially ended whatever it was you had. I'm not saying he won't be back to start a new thing, but the thing I had is officially over.
Does it make me an awful person that I'm relieved to see the broken bird fly away?
