After nine years together, Jeff and I have decided to part ways. This is a mutual and amicable decision, and we wanted everyone to know that we are both ok
Jeff’s post is at http://bethesignal.org/blog/2011/06/09/parting-ways/
Though we still care for each other and will remain good friends, unfortunately we have grown significantly apart and out of love.
Personally, I have learnt a lot from this relationship and from Jeff, and I look forward to seeing what he goes on to do and supporting him as a friend. Although it will be a difficult transition in some ways, we know this is the right thing to do and hope you will all support us both through this.
I will be staying in the Canberra area and Jeff is planning to move back to Sydney.
Although we both will appreciate loads of hugs in the short term, it would be great if everyone could avoid the “I’m sorry to hear that” of “what happened” sympathies. Good company, good times and good wine will be the best way you can support one or both of us.
Thank you everyone, and please if you know us both, don’t feel weird about inviting us to the same parties
