Perhaps the therapy can help you both arrive at a place where you can better consider and imagine that. A future where you remain on good terms and are close family friends and can still be doing the board games and vacations. But not being romantic partners.

You both are hurting so much right now.

It doesn't have to be that way.

Thank you. Reading this made me burst into tears (itís okay, Iíve been crying on and off all weekend...) but it feels like I have some hope.

Itís hard to imagine being friends with someone I have loved so much and felt such a strong romantic and sexual connection to. It seems like it will be so painful of a transition ó how does one even handle a transition from codependency to friendship? But that is where I want us to focus our therapy.
