Wasn’t really expecting a reply at all, but he texted me today.
Basically it said “I read your letter, I have been thinking about everything you wrote and I am willing to talk about things further if you are.” I gave it about an hour so I could think it over and then texted him back saying that I’m willing to talk as well. He asked what I was going to be comfortable with, a phone call or a face to face meeting and I said I’d rather talk in person. He’s away at a conference until Monday so we are meeting Tuesday evening.
Yeah, I really have no idea what to expect. I spent a long time on the phone to my best friend kind of freaking out but I think I owe it to myself to hear what he has to say. If he’s a total dick or tries to keep justifying his behavior, I will get up and walk out. That’s not what I’m showing up for, I know that much. I feel like I said my piece in the letter so now it’s just about seeing if it’s worth it to reopen the lines of communication any further.
Please keep your fingers crossed for me. I’m going to do my best to not overthink it in the meantime. Also, I’m going to need more wine.
