<Recipient Address Goes Here>
When <I/you> first went away to <location>, I thought we could keep things together. We wrote and had long phone calls and all that, and it was fun. But now I have to be honest: it's getting to be too much to take. I don't think I can do this long-distance relationship thing anymore.
I feel like my life is on hold. I can't go out with any of the <guys/girls> I meet because even if it's innocent, I feel guilty. It's really bothering me, and I think maybe it's time we talked about moving on with our lives.
I know this must be hard to read, and the last thing I want to do is hurt you. But I really think we need to talk about this. Please call me and let's figure out what we can do that will make things better for both of us. And always remember that I love you.
