This may sound a little strange, but I have not talked to you for the last few years even though we see each other frequently. It’s not because I hate you, I definitely don’t; nor is it because I care about what others think.
The thing is I actually admire you a lot and care about you. I think that people who get close to me somehow end up getting hurt and I don’t want you to be one of them!
Also it’s been such a long time since we’ve talked, I don’t know what to say. I’ve gotten too shy and somewhat proud in the time we didn’t see each other.
I hope to someday regain the friendship we once had… Hopefully you’ll never see this post!
Your friend (hopefully)
