I remember the day I met him
His face stood out amongst all others
So kind and genuine
I could tell he truly wanted to focus on me
That’s so important in any good relationship
I returned his gaze as we spoke
Eye contact had been important to both of us from the second we exchanged names
Along with our sense of humor
Others around us always enjoyed listening in to our conversations
One of my favorite memories….
When he was on the phone resolving an issue on my behalf
He was always a gentleman like that, stepping up for the damsel in distress
As he told the woman on the other end of the line that I had indeed performed the factory reset on my phone, he nodded in my direction verifying that I had.
My head bobbled in the opposite direction.
His eyes looked at mine, searching for a solution. He wasn’t the least bit mad at me, but appreciated my honesty.
I calmly looked back at his and stated “come on Patrick, you can do this.”
He went back to the phone and delivered “She tried to do the factory reset, but I’m not completely certain she knows if it went through, she’s a bit challenged when it comes to technology.”
As our eyes again met, I whispered..”great job!” and I meant every word.
It had taken us 5 months to get to this place, a place of such comfort.
Sometimes to get further in life, you must challenge the comfort zone.
This weekend, in a split second I came to the understanding that there is nothing on the screen of our future at this time.
It’s gone completely black.
Drawing off of this nothingness, there are so many emotions I am going through at the moment.
As if I have been completely removed from this world
But I understand it’s only temporary
And this afternoon when I disclose to him my true feelings, I’m certain it will not be the first time either of us has had to part ways.
I will demand things of him I have never demanded before.
And he will comply with my every expectation; I admire that so much about him.
And when at last I sever our tie, I will leave him a piece of me to remember for all of time
The very part that started our relationship
Upon my exit, I will spin on my heels never looking back
I will finally have what I came in for over 5 months ago
When my prior 2 year commitment had come to a close
Patrick was simply a 5 month distraction
An affair keeping me from my one true love
Today I strongly take a vow never to let him or any other Verizon representative interfere with my Apple relationship ever again
My affair will finally come to an end today, Monday, August 11th
