There are some of us who respect you, because, we know, that we can't co-exist by hating the opposite gender.
I hope you've kept the eccentric, crazy, silly, sassy, funny present you intact.
Whatever our reasons for drifting apart, know that I still think of our times together with fondness.
Because, I've been lucky enough to come across people who are true 'keepers'.
With every no, I moved a little more closer to perfection.
Hold on to the friends you make and the friendships you develop during this time, some of these are gonna get you through tough times in the future.
Back then it seemed unfair but now that I've matured (hopefully) I realize how right you were. Back then it hurt, now I just want to say, "Dad, you were right. About everything."
