Dear Cake,

It’s not you it’s me. I have been feeling for some time that things aren’t right between us.

I used to look forward to seeing you and hanging out with you drinking tea. I used to hang on your every crumb but recently our flirtatious meetings leave me feeling ultimately empty – and if truth be told, a bit worse for wear.

My body aches, not for you, but because of you. I don’t want to grow old with you because you are aging me terribly.

Our relationship is no longer worth the momentary high. Don’t take this the wrong way. I find you incredibly attractive and seductive, but ultimately I know that we are not right for each other.

Admitting it hurts but I’ve been in denial for a while.

I’m looking for a relationship that will last and keep me grounded. A relationship to sustain and engage me as I grow older – because I want to grow older and still feel YOUNG in my body. I need someone I can rely on to have my best interests at heart. I know it might be hard for me to let you go, but I know that in time, it will all work out for the best.

So, I have to let you go, sugar. Thank you for the good times.

Deliciously yours,


p.s. Don’t bother to try to find me. I won’t be lonely. I have a supportive group of new friends in Nourish.
