You just described all the breakups I have experienced in my life both ways: when SHE OR MYSELF went away for holidays
I have a question for you in order to meditate and try to save our future relationships: What if previous to depart you look her with sad eyes, give her a big hug and tell her “Has been nice meeting you…I” ll never forget…you know that when won`t see each other. I wish you the very best”
Saying something like that in a meaningful way you are saying farewell to her. I think she may remain puzzled and perhaps she will try to re-engage the relationship when she`s back.
What do you think?
Thanks for a great posting Varoon
