AGM date is getting closer (still not decided but will be by end of year) and what! nobody has any points or opinions on what riders want. Plenty getting discussed by all in Belgium this weekend and at Hook woods last weekend on what the people want to be discussed and lots of very positive opinions being brought up from section marking to where the events need to be held. Its at a turn around point and few people old and new are bringing things to the table.
I got it Ross but kept my keyboard to myself, its a manners thing that some seem to be lacking in and I know some have a long trip home but 15 to 30 min extra on the day is not really a problem, to build the whole club spirit thing is it. Barbara does certificates for the primary class, but should we have to bribe riders to stay? That waiting time could be used to help dismantle the sections and help with anything else needing done. Oops seemed to have sorted that bit already.
Unfortunately it sounds as though it just isn't meant to be and the right path is now being taken before it spirals further. You've both discussed it recently and in a way it is an inevitability but the routine and habit are hiding the facts. Sit down with her, finalise the break up with definitely no option of a second chance, cry together, cuddle, hug, be adult, be friends and keep the relationship in a different guise. The fact she is offering a second chance and that you think of her so highly as a person would indicate to me that you both have feelings for each other, just not the lasting relationship ones.
The exact same happened to me just after new years 2012, after 4 years together she pointed out the brutal truth that we just weren't as compatible as we thought and hadn't been truely happy together. Cue the above, there was no acrimony, just adult conversation and get on with it; yes the hollowness was there but the good memories remained because we parted on mutual terms.
As it turned out, within 3 weeks I had shacked up with her mate (who had that week ended a 6 year relationship with the kids dad and is now my wife of two very happy years) and she shacked up with a mutual friend of both of ours (who coincidentally that week had just ended it with is girlfriend) and is getting married in december. Jacki (the ex) was Charlotte's (the wife) maid of honour and Lee (Jacki's fiance) was my best man - basically we played wifeswap four years ago and it turned out awesome for everyone! Not saying that this will happen to you but don't stay in an unhappy relationship when you can have a happy friendship.
TL : DR you got friendzoned, embrace it, it might be the best thing that happened to you
