Farewell letter to my first boyfriend!

I still remember the day when we met for the first time. In the beginning I had my doubts that I ever can have a relationship with you. Then I saw you online and decided to check you out - just for fun and  not really believing into anything.
And then we met in that dressing room in Nordstrom - and the rest was history. It was love from the first sight - or rather from the first try on. You had a soft touch, forgiving nature and made me look and feel good  - what else a girl can ask for from a boyfriend?! I was not really sure we can make it work in a long run ( can a prince charming from a fitting room turn into an ugly orphaned frog at home?) but I was willing to risk it and give it a try.

Well, you passed the real life test with flying colors. Our first outing together was a resounding success and I have never looked back. You went with me to work, on travels and to run casual errands on the weekends and were always true to your nature - soft, forgiving and flattering. 

We had so much fun together over the last 2 years but unfortunately the day came when we need to part ways with you. This is not your fault at all, you are still the same soft, forgiving and flattering boyfriend a girl can dream of  - but I have changed now. We are not a perfect match anymore and I feel that there is too much of you in all the wrong places and it makes me unhappy when we are together. I cannot do you the justice you deserve anymore because I cannot fill you up as well as I did before. It pains me to say good bye but I have no choice.

Fortunately you found a new loving home with my girlfriend now and it made the parting so much easier than if I had to abandon you to perfect strangers. I hope you will be as happy with her as you were with me and I will never forget you! These images of our happy times together will stay with me forever!

Farewell my boyfriend and please do not be angry with me: you know that I needed to lose that extra weight, which now made our relationship impossible to continue. I hope there will be another boyfriend in my future as soft, forgiving and flattering as you were but who is more suited to a new me.
I will remember you always with love!!!!

    Aw if only all breakups were handled so sensitively!

  • Caro in Oz replied 6 years ago

    It was REALLY great while it lasted :)

  • Joy replied 6 years ago

    What a touching tribute. There is sure to be a fabulous new boyfriend in your future.

    As Angie says......NEXT.  This is why we only have boyfriends, not husbands, in our closets.  That way we can dismiss them without alimony!

  • Thistle replied 6 years ago

    Truly, a very mature and thoughtful breakup.

  • Tina replied 6 years ago

    Aww. The memories will last. Such a fitting tribute:-)

  • Neel replied 6 years ago

    *wipes away tears* You two were such a nice pair.

    congratulations on losing the weight you wanted to lose ; )

  • Phatgranny replied 6 years ago

    Wow -- you can pick 'em, girl!  That was one good-lookin' boyfriend you had. It's always so sad to outgrow a relationship, but I'll bet you and your new boyfriend will be a stunning match!

  • deb replied 6 years ago

    Well, at least this boyfriend did not cling as you said goodbye.

  • Suz replied 6 years ago


    You let your boyfriend down so softly that he is probably thanking you. Even though you were the most gorgeous girlfriend he could ever have hoped for. 

    Deb, LOL!!! :)

    Ohh... such a sweet letter. Sniff. And I can see he did you proud, in the day. Glad he found a loving home!

  • Gigi replied 6 years ago

    What a fun read! Sveta, you make me want to buy a pair of BFs now, since you look so fabulous in them! I especially like them with the white tux shirt.

  • CocoLion replied 6 years ago

    You had me for a second.  LOL Sveta...

  • O replied 6 years ago

    Mature indeed, the break-up and knowing you're better off on your own than with someone who's no longer a good match.

    But, I do wonder how long had your friend has been eyeing your (then still) boyfriend ;-)

  • Aida replied 6 years ago

    What a lovely tribute ^^ I know there's another out there for the new you.

  • AviaMariah replied 6 years ago

    You rocked those BFs too.  Hoping the next one comes along soon.  :)

  • Jewell replied 6 years ago

    A bittersweet farewell...so long sweet boyfriend!

    P.S. I'm standing in front of my mirror trying on my copycat of that first outfit. Looks good- think I'll wear it tomorrow :-)

  • dustt replied 6 years ago

    that brought a tear to my - best breakup letter I've ever read. Sveta you let him down so gently.... and hooked him up with a rebound girl!!

    It might not be easy, but you now must move forward and find a new boyfriend. NEXT!

  • Sveta replied 6 years ago

    Ah, your sympathy and understanding in the heart ( and closet) matters are the best! Thank you for sharing in my romantic story. :-)

    Life is full of difficult moments Sveta - you've handled this with great maturity and grace. May the memories fade soon to ease your pain.
