A WebForms Breakup Letter

1022693_couple_heartbreakerDear WebForms,

I’m writing this to let you know that it’s over between us. I realize we’ve been together for some time now, but over the years things have gotten bad and it’s time to call it off. Don’t worry, it’s not you, it’s me. Well, actually that’s not true. It’s really you. You’ve really let yourself go over the years. But it’s not just about that. I’ve tried for years now, and the truth is I just don’t understand you. I feel like you’re always trying to hide what you’re really doing from me. You just keep too many secrets. How can we have a healthy relationship without total transparency? Also, you don’t seem to get along very well with some of my other close friends like JavaScript and TDD.

We have been together for quite a while so I feel like I owe you total honesty. The truth is I’ve been seeing someone else for the last few months. MVC and I have been spending more and more time together and it’s becoming obvious that we’re in love. I know you’re thinking this is about being traded in for someone younger and lighter weight, but it’s about a lot more than that. MVC just makes my life simple. It’s flexible and understanding when I need to do things in a different way it’s used to. It gets along really well with my other web dev friends. Most of all, I feel like I’m really on the same page as MVC. We think alike. MVC is up front, honest, and clear about what it’s up to. I don’t feel like it’s trying to hide things from me.

So that’s it. This is the end. Thanks for the memories. Don’t try to change my mind, I’m already gone.
