The end of a love affair?
STFC007 joins more than several Town fans with doubts about renewing their love affair and season tickets for 2017/18…
I am so so sorry.
I cannot even begin to comprehend how you must be feeling right now.
It’s not just a single thing really and it’s not something that happened overnight either, but it’s just how I feel and have been feeling for some time now.
No, there’s not anyone else, never has been whilst I have been with you and I doubt there will ever be anyone like you.
I am really so so sorry.
I know we were meant to renew our annual vows, but I don’t feel it’s right. Not this time.
It’s not you, honestly, it’s me. It’s all down to me. Really.
What do you mean you don’t care and that someone else will replace me and take my seat in the next few months?
Arrgh! You know what? It’s not me at all!
It’s you. It’s you who changed. Not me.
Yes. There, I’ve said it.
There I was foolishly thinking how I could soften the blow trying not to hurt you too much.
What do you mean you have felt unsupported for such a long time? How can you say that?
I have followed you throughout the entire country for years and years.
Remember the time with all the flooding in Carlisle and you were there already? I drove for hours there and back just so I could see you.
Or the many times I thought I would not be able to see you because of all the traffic jams?
I didn’t care. Nothing could ever stop me from seeing you. It was always so worth it; we were so good together back then.
When we first met, I could not wait to see you again. I was longing for the weekend, counting the days just to catch a glimpse.
And when we were together, I would shout your name as loud as I could. It felt great; at least we were together, you and I.
But the last few years it seems you don’t care whether I am there or not. Recently I wrote you a letter which I personally dropped off and also emailed you, but you could not even bother to reply.
Well, in about 2 months time, I will be asked to once again renew our vows. I had my doubts last year, but then thought it was a blip, a rough patch many relationships go through, but now I know it’s more than that.
I know others are in long lasting relationships, but I can no longer pretend, hoping things may change and get better next year or the year thereafter.
I still like you, but I think I have fallen out of love with you.
Sparks should be flying when we are together, but instead I am thinking what else I could be doing instead when I am with you.
You may have noticed that recently I leave early; but it seems you don’t even care anymore whether I am there or not.
I hope we can remain friends and I may well visit you from time to time, but for now it would be best not to renew our vows.
I do wish you happiness and success; you deserve it.
