The entire purpose of this hobby is to trade “A” for “B”. In this exchange both parties win. It would appear, that you arrangement as malformed into something less that your original agreement. As with anything, the ending is always difficult. Take your 9 years of fun and memories and part ways. NOW. If you let it drag out, then you will have regret, which will overcast the fonder memories once shared. That much I am sure of. Good Luck!
