PS, I Loved You. A Business Love Affair.

Love at first sight. He was walking all day, looking for a job. He went from north to south not finding any. Then suddenly he bumped into this lady. They chatted, he gave her his details – phone number, address, necessary personal information. He got her address and promised to visit her soon. He couldn’t wait, he visited her the next day, armed with nothing but confidence and hope that she’ll accept her. She let her in, chatted again this time for hours. He fell in love with what she has to offer and how beautiful she really is. She offered him great vision – a meaningful career and then some. She’s the best there is at that time and it seemed like he was really reaching for the moon. The chat ended. She said she’ll just contact him later.

One day. Two days. A week. Months have passed and there was nothing. He didn’t hear anything from her anymore. He was somehow crushed. He promised to go back and visit her again when the right time comes. then suddenly, an email! She’s asking him to pay her a visit and see if they could work out something. He went to her place right away and something clicked. They became a couple, March 19, 2007 is the official date.

Year One. They saw each other almost every single day. He had to choose a split rest day from work just so they won’t be gone from each other for that long. The first year together wasn’t easy but was surely a great ride. There were problems that came along but through the help of their friends, they were able to hurdle those challenges. The people around them played a very big role in their relationship. In fact, if it wasn’t for them they’d probably have broken up immediately. He was very thankful and cherished the friendship and the bond they created. Year one was rocky yet meaningful.

Year Two. A lot of experiences, good and bad, shared together, their relationship became even stronger. He has learned the ropes and was doing well at work. He felt like they needed to take their relationship to the next level. They talked about. And then opportunity came knocking down. He was introduced to her other friends, this time from Training and Quality and that only made their love for each other grow better. He was busy at work but was loving every single bit of it. they spent more time together, more than twice the number of scheduled hours during some occasions. But they didn’t mind. This is what was promised to him anyway during the first time he visited her a year ago. It’s all good and he knew it will only get better. It did.

Year Three. She made his dream come true, with the help of her Training and Quality friends, his responsibilities were taken up a notch. Again, this is what was promised to him. During their year together, she met a new friend, more of a business partner. He didn’t mind him that much as he wasn’t really doing anything that would affect their relationship. Or so he thought.

Year Four. Changes started happening. Suddenly, this business partner of hers started making some decisions for her. She assured him that nothing silly was going on and that he should trust her more than ever. That this partnership will only make it better for them just like what it did the past two, three years. He took her word for it. However, he wondered why most of his friends from Training and Quality started leaving one by one. He wondered about what was going on. He started hearing rumors about this business partner having a hand on those movements, of people leaving for someone else. He was confused and had a lot of questions in his mind. But again, he took her word for it. He stood by what she said though he had more questions than answers more than ever. He felt like there was something going on. His instinct was right.

Year Five. Still holding on. Never mind the changes happening all around the place. Even her was kind of different from the years passed. He felt like the vision that was laid out to him some years ago was starting to change. That the direction of her life, her priorities suddenly changed. He was right all along. He felt like he should’ve listened to his friends who started jumping out of the ship a year or two ago. She is a different person now. Not necessarily bad but just totally different. Her mission has changed, the culture is now far from what it was before. He can’t blame her. This could even be better for most of us. For most of them.

The Fallout. After almost six years of being together, it has come to an end. This had to happen. When views and beliefs of two people are no longer calibrated, sometimes, most of the times, it’s best to part ways. He learned a lot from her, she gained a lot from him. It was a love story that was a love story at the onset but as we all know some good things never last. It’s time to move on. The last time I talked to him was that his birthday gift to himself is a change of scenery. He will surely miss her, the old her.

He was looking for a job, he found love. It was heaven. He decided to leave before it becomes hell.

PS, I loved you.
