Now I know that I’m leaving Town Hospital, I’ve been thinking about the things that have happened to me whilst I’ve been working here. My mind keeps coming back to Gemma. Things never did work out between me and her. We went out a couple of times and I’m she was really keen. The reason it didn’t work out was 100% my doing. I had other things on my mind. The most obvious of which was that I knew that if we did get together, there was a high likelihood that I’d have to move far away from her in a matter of weeks.
Long-distance relationships haven’t worked for me in the past and I didn’t want to start something with so much uncertainty around regarding pretty major life stuff like my employment status and where in the country I’d be living.
It is a shame though, if I were to write down a list of things I’d look for in a girlfriend it’d go something like this:
Likes me too
Gemma definitely ticks all my boxes – in fact she was the first girl I’d met for ages who seemed to.
I’m going to make the effort to stay in touch with her and hopefully we’ll become good friends. Time will tell
