I know there was love. But we have different priorities and I can now see that his telling me about how he would never give up parts of his life for me or anyone else was a huge contributer to our relationship failing.
At the beginning, it didn't matter to me that we didnt share the same views on some key issues - I hadn't planned to fall for him, so I didnt care.
Of course, I'm not AT ALL saying that this is the only reason we didnt work out (y'all know I've got some epic baggage). But as I considered my futue, I knew that a future with him - and his interests - wasn't what I wanted for myself or my family.
