CLASSIC "DEAR JOHN" NOTE NUMBER ONE: (Woman to Man)

There is something the matter. I sense your distance. I sense that this relationship has become a burden for you. Financially, it always was, I guess. But now it is more. Each time we talk, you accuse me of having ill-treated you. I am left feeling guilty that you would come to me but for the fact that my behavior with you has been erratic, neurotic. I accept.

You may think I am stupid, but I understand these things. I have been here before, and not too long ago. I have tried to be quiet because I am swamped with work, and also I know your book is on the boil.

You have brought me untold happiness. I will always be grateful to God for sending you in my life when He did.

The only thing I understand about love is that it does not last. The words that stood a moment on your tongue, the love that stood a moment in your eyes, is one with all that in a moment dies, a little undersaid, a little oversung. I accept.

 

CLASSIC "DEAR JOHN" NOTE NUMBER TWO: (Woman to Man)

I need space. You are suffocating me. You are a good guy, but now I must. Thanks for all the good times.

 

CLASSIC "DEAR JOHN" NOTE NUMBER THREE: (Woman to Man)

Get lost, and don't bother getting in touch.

Wow these notes are really nice. There are a lot of truth in them. For example I always here "Get lost, and don't bother getting in touch." when I am trying to speak to the beautiful girl in the club. However I have never heard something like "You are a good guy, but now I must.". It would be more sophisticated way to send the guy away. "Dear John" notes rules and that's all I want to say. Thanks for publishing them here! Keep posting nice stuff in the future too.
