...set it free

The old adage "if you love something, set it free... if it comes back, it was meant to be" doesn't even hint at the torture of waiting for it to come back or leave forever.

I am the world's most patient man. If patience is a virtue, then when I die I'm going to be made Jesus. I once waited 4 hours for a girl. And I didn't get too pissed off that she stood me up! Did I mention there was NO chance of sex with this girl? Some might say that borders on insanity.

But waiting for something to come back (or leave forever) is agonising.

And how do you know it's gone forever? I suppose moving to another state or country is a good sign, but what if that person is still in the same town as you? Still friends?

How long do you wait? A few months? Years? because I could wait years...

And what are you meant to do whilst waiting? You don't want to jeopardize it by being too interested in someone else, but at the same time you don't want to hobble yourself either, miss out on opportunity.

Nor do you want to stifle them. They need space, hence the break, but how much is too much... you want to keep yourself on their radar, but not so much so that you're the only focus.

damn it, I had more to say, but I forgot it...
I should write this stuff down... or get a laptop or phone with wireless internet access...
