As depicted in the picture attached to this post, we had an unmatchable love story full of breathtaking, amazing memories. For more than a year, we have gotten to know and have learned to cherish one another in an incredibly special way.
Family, friends, followers, and more have viewed our relationship and have expected the absolute best. As with most relationships in the social media spotlight, only the seemingly perfect has been presented. We’ve been encouraged by so many, but only we have had a front row seat to our relationship, gosh, and what a beautiful thing it has been to experience. At the same time, of course, there has been difficulty.
Ultimately, we have the utmost care, respect, and love for each other, and will continue with such, just not as a couple. Both of us are very ambitious people, and we started to notice that our ambitions and plans started to lead us in different directions. While we are compatible in a unique and beautiful way, we were also in denial of several incompatibilities that kept coming up and causing us some undue stress and anxiety. We tried our best to work on things for a while now, but to avoid building any sort of resentment towards one another, we’ve made the mutual decision to part ways as a couple.
We pray that you’ll continue supporting us as individuals, as you always have. And as we spend some time apart, we pray that a great friendship will eventually be forged.
Just as so many of you have viewed our love as “your hope for love”, we hope you will also view our parting of ways as your inspiration to always show respect, appreciation, maturity, and grace towards the people who come into and out of your life for certain reasons, at certain seasons.
In our favorite song by @bensplatt, Grow As We Go, one of the lyrics chased tears down our cheeks as we stood side by side, hand in hand, looking at each other heartbroken, but hopeful.
“I don't know who we'll become,
I can't promise it's not written in the stars.
But I believe that when it's done,
We're gonna see that it was better
That we grew up together.”
With love and hope,
Tucker + Nico
