The End of a Long and Painful Saga

So I've come to all of you for advice countless times before all about the same girl... Emily. I just did something that I think might have been the hardest decision I've made thus far in my life, but one of the most important ones... and I feel great.

When we broke up in October, we promiced eachother we would still go to prom togather. Prom is now two weeks away, and there has been a lot of tension and stress and discomfort between us, and I figured out... Prom is what's doing it. I figured out that she's been long over me... we broke up once, we broke up twice... but every time I've kept hanging on. Telling myself that prom would tell me what to do next, turn some cards over, help me out, fix things... but I figured out that it won't, and with graduation comming up in six weeks... (and I'm offically going to UofA now, USC said no,) the one thing we need to make this friendship of ours work is for me to move past 'I love you.' She's been ready and waiting to turn this into us being best friends again, and I've been waiting for her to change her mind (we broke up due to religion), waiting for her to come back.

I called her tonight, and I told her that I asked her to go to prom with me when we were breaking up (literally, same conversation,) because it seemed like the right thing to do at the time... but going to this event as a couple, wouldnt benefit our friendship at all... because we havnt been a couple for so long, and acting like it won't help. I think we can both have a lot of fun there, but I think we should go there our seperate ways... and she sounded relieved, and told me she agreed, and was okay with it.

I'm proud of myself. I got past a major hurdle thats been burdening me for a long while... I just thought I'd let you guys know, because a lot of you have helped me out with it before. So thanks.

Syrgot:

Dude, you're in high school. High school relationships don't count as real relationships. You're realize that someday when you grow up.

i went through the same high school thing, and bob dole is right, in a few years after school is done and you havent seen her, you wont give a rats ass and you will think to your self "what was i thinking, thats not me"

but in a few years you will also realize it has made you smarter

Please, Syrgot, save your story for an "ABC Afterschool Special".

When you get to the prom, you'll cry when they play Bon Jovi's "I'll Be There For You". Then you and your buds will jump in some dude's ride and go around whacking mailboxes. And then you'll feel better.

The same will go for you in the rest of your life. Just substitute Bon Jovi with Modest Mouse and whacking mailboxes with having wild, unprotected sex at some strip joint.
