You're amazing, fun and made my life richer - and that's why it pains me to break up with you, favorites.

There's certainly nothing wrong with you - we are a great match in a lot of ways - you're resourceful, helped me keep track of all the great stuff that's written here on Mefi, and allowed me to show my appreciation towards other mefites.
But I'm not feeling strongly enough about this, and I know that it's important to me to have that strong connection by now. What I'm feeling is that I don't add posts and comments as favorites because I expect to get back to them some day - like you do with browser bookmarks - but because I want to upvote them; I just want to thank the poster or acknowledge their effort, or tell the world I think that the subject matter is important. But at the same time, I have been using you as a substitute for bookmarks and it's clear to me that this doesn't work and that it has been wrong of me to use you in such a fashion.
You deserve real feeling and enthusiasm and for whatever reason I can't deliver it right now.
I don't want to be in your way and prevent you experiencing the fabulous life you will soon be living when you are with someone who is ready for you right now, and knowing that's not me I think its' best to free you up.
I really really really really struggled with this decision because I like you and don't want to hurt you. I didn't make it lightly but I feel sure it's the right thing.
Do you have any questions for me?
