yes, you’ve been dating and you think it’s been going along quite well. you’ve met the parents. you’ve gone on vacation together (7 days alone!) there have been intimacies shared (you, at least, spilled your guts. the ocean on the other hand has remained aloof, washing garbage ashore in response to your latest revelation.)
if you weren’t so passionately in love, you’d be able to see that the relationship is going nowhere.
but yet, you continue to hope that you’ll win the ocean over. i hate to break this to you, you know i have your best interests at heart and although what i’m about to say will hurt, please know i mean no malice–we’ll always be friends–but, sweetie, the ocean doesn’t care about you; never has, never will. yes, yes, here take my handkerchief, you don’t want your mascara to run–you must put on a brave face. you’ll find someone else (and under their breath you hear, “not fucking likely.”)
