Elementary particles of truth, a follow-up

I broke up with my debate buddy. It was done gently and carefully, where I made a point to say I enjoyed getting to know him, hoped he didn’t think the exercise was a waste of time, and so forth. He responded respectfully and said I could stay with him in China someday if I chose to. It was all handled nicely.

I have learned a lot about myself through the experience. We both frustrated each other a bit, and both were looking for different things out of the exchange and the relationship. I’m glad we did it, and I’m glad we left things in a friendly place. Now I am thinking through things I learned about myself and him through the experience. I may have more to talk about later on.
