Anyone ever have something like a break help strengthen things? Should I see this as him pulling away overwhelmed? He told me how he wants to marry me and be with me... yet his actions and anxiety about commitment speak volumes otherwise. Am very confused and lost about whether I should hold out some hope or just fully block myself off to move on

Kindly, listen to his words. He said “don’t wait for me” that means move on. I know you miss him but it will get easier, and... you want to be with someone that wants to be with you.

D-Day? Finest hour? I’m sure we’re all hearing these ridiculous references on the news to the fight on Covid and the vaccines. Sounds sacrilegious to me.

Recklessly traveled in droves over Thanksgiving. Sorry, but just an observation about the hubris that brought out the worst in too many people.
