http://lovefreenovels.com/Fiction/This_Is_Falling/page_44.html The girl wants to break up with here unconsious forever boyfriend and writes such a say-goodbye letter:

The more I think about it, the more I know we probably would have broken up by now anyway, because as good as you were, we were young, and the me I’m growing into wants to experience more in life.

I looked up "as good as" means "almost, nearly" which seems don't fit into here.

And the uncompleted "you were" means "you were young"?
