Dear "A Cache Nearest You"

Dear A Cache Nearest You,

Valentine’s Day, like many holidays, can be a stressful time.  So first thing’s first, relax and try to enjoy the day for what it is.

You admit from day one that your CO left you out in the cold so it appears your CO hasn’t changed at all.  Many people develop relationships in hopes of “changing” the other into their own vision.  That is a recipe for disaster.  If that is what you hoped, I suggest ending this situation immediately.

Your CO’s one-time frequent visits where you were showered with gifts really just hid a larger problem – a lack of communication.  Counseling may be what you need to get the conversation going.

If you are no longer good enough for his friends, then I say it’s time to move on.  You, Cache, are not some trophy to be put on display at his whim.  Stand up for yourself!

One year is long enough to have waited.  Waiting is a sucker’s game.  This will be hard to hear, but I suspect you are not the only geocache in his life.  Sometimes we must simply move on.

In summary, you must stop being so hard on yourself.  If you insist on giving the CO one more chance, counseling is a must.  If he refuses, there’s no future here.  Oh I know, geocachers certainly are – how to put it politely – on the “odd” side, but that is no excuse.  Adults don’t behave this way, even geocaching adults.  If your CO thinks he’s being clever, it’s time to set him straight.

Best of luck.

Yours,
Prudence

I see what you did there... pushing your "retire forgotten caches" agenda, eh?

Well, very well done. I approve.

Prudence sounds very mature and understanding, If I didn't live 5491.93 miles away I would have adopted the poor neglected cache. Shame the CO hasn't been very serious in their relationship. From a very distraught Lady-Magpie. Sob!!
