Dear Jon Letter

Dear Jon,

Hey. I’ve been thinking about us a lot recently, and... I just don’t think it’s going to work out. I know we started off so great but I think we both know it hasn’t gone real well recently. I think we’ve both tried to keep it together because we're afraid of the alternatives, but it’s just not going to work out. It's just that you're so young and I’m not in a position to make a long-term commitment right now. You need to be with someone that can be there for you all the time and we both know that’s not me. I’m messed up right now, and if we stay together I’ll just end up hurting you. I couldn’t live with myself if I did that.

Maybe in a couple of years, when I’ve had time to get my act together, we can try it again. Don’t take it personally; I know it’s a cliché, but it’s really not you, it’s me. I hope we can stay friends and I’ll be sure to check in on how you’re doing. Hey, we’ll always have that one night in London, right?

I’m Sorry,
The Kings
