“Not exactly this, but I proposed, got engaged for like 2 months, then got my ring returned in a paper bag with very little explanation of what went wrong.
It was horrible right after. Like, couldn’t stop thinking about it every second. Then every minute. Then every hour. Then every day. Then week. Then month. Then year. It’s been over a decade now and it was the best thing that’s ever happened to me. We were so so wrong for each other and it was a toxic relationship. You can’t see it until you’ve had some time outside of it to reflect and to meet someone you get along with so well you wonder why the hell you didn’t meet them earlier.” –insanitylater
