Dear Stern German Lady
A few years ago, I met a wonderful person. I spent roughly three months with him in a budding relationship. One night he said those three little words, and I panicked and disappeared from his life. I know it was a horrible and cowardly thing to do. I just didn’t know how to handle it other than ask him why and saying, “You can’t mean me, right?”
I have felt horrible that I vanished without any explanation and most likely hurt him. I really would like to apologize for my actions and immaturity. I recently found his address and wonder if it would be all right to send an apology, or if it would be best not to open potential wounds.

Dear Gone In the Night,
You are going to die alone. You had your chance. Prepare to live the life of a spinster.
Maybe I was too quick to judge. Let me go over it again: You were in a happy relationship, budding like a new flower in may; he then tried to water the plant with love, waiting for your sunshine to power the relationship; you then blocked out the sun, stomped on the flower of your love, and laid over the ground with asphalt in the middle of the night.
I do not think you should contact him. I think everyone needs to move on to a simple life of farming. I know you are going to die an old maid.
