Today I got a letter from the one and only woman I've ever fallen in love with (not to be confused with women I have dated).
She has been "anti-friendship" with me for nigh on 16 years now, due to a choice I made that was devastating for her then.
I have never given up on the POSSIBILITY of having my friend back. She was one of my best friends and I've made no secret of the fact that I miss her.
This letter is the first that addresses the possibility of rebuilding a friendship. She expresses what her "speed bumps" are and ends with specifying that she doesn't see them as road blocks per se, but that they are speed bumps to address.
