May 19, 2008
In eighth grade, our English teacher paired us up with pen pals in Georgia.

After about a month of correspondence, she wrote, I'm so sorry, but I feel like I wouldn't like you if I met you...

My pen pal broke up with me.

In my final letter, I wrote back to say that no apology was necessary. Most of the time I didn't like myself very much either, so her feelings were justifiable.

These days just the sight of a book of stamps makes me lose it.

Can I ever trust enough to have that kind of relationship again?
