The Perfect Goodbye Letter
I hope this email finds you well. I’ve been thinking a lot about our last conversations and there are a couple of things I wanted share.
Firstly, I want to thank you again for making it clear that you aren't ready and/or interested in the same level of commitment I was suggesting. At least, not with me...I deeply appreciate the honesty and the thoughtful manner you conveyed this. It’s taken me this time to process the end of our dating relationship. I want you to know that I don't regret laying all my cards out on the table. I wouldn't have said that my expectations were to be in an exclusive relationship with you, to spend more time together and keep building on what we had, if I didn't have strong feelings for you.
That said, these past couple weeks having reflected a bit more on the time we spent together, I have come to also understand as much as our dating relationship was based in part on an evolving friendship that I really enjoyed, that alone is not what my hope or expectation was for us. So, while in theory it sounds nice to transition into a friendship, I know at this present time it's taking me out of my truth. Matt, I think you know what I'm saying here. For me it's still all or nothing. Therefore, I hope you can appreciate and understand that given my strong feelings for you, a true friendship isn't possible. I wholeheartedly wish you all the best and hope you find your bliss!
