Thanks for the comment Steven (I'm assuming that's your name). I appreciate the kind words and your offer. 

I knew deep down that the relationship was doomed from the start- it was just one of those things that wasn't ever going to work. Nonetheless, I hoped for the best the whole time. And that's what hurts when it ends; the feeling of your hope being extinguished. 

Usually I'm a pessimist in these situations but I'm taking the opposite view right now. I'm looking forward to getting into a good relationship with a woman who appreciates me as much as I appreciate her. 

Thanks again for your words. 

-DJ
