  1. Well, that was quick. She called, we talked, and are going to try to work it out.
  2. Well, as the breakup was "official" as of yesterday, this is day 1. I did notice at some point today she blocked me on FB. Not that I was going to contact her, but I could see if she was online and I wondered if she was going to keep that avenue open. Guess I got my answer after I checked this morning. Out of respect for her wishes, I won't reach out, but if she does, I will be glad to talk. I will say that I feel a little better today than I did yesterday. IMO this relationship ended prematurely to a misunderstanding.
  3. Hey, now. Lol. Maybe I could have rephrased that, more along the lines of that I was kidding myself believing I was OK with it, but really wanting more time together. :shrug:
  4. I've found most of the comments here to be pretty insightful. I don't know if this is helpful/relevant to the subject (I think it could be, lol) but of those 5 months, we saw each other usually part of the weekend. Maybe a sporadic weekday dinner if her job took her near me. She has teenage sons and I was fine with the fact that she's got other responsibilities. (Or was I? Hmmmm...) Anyway, I was definitely up for spending more time together, but not pushy or angry about it.
  5. I was hoping to bring her to my daughter's college graduation.
  6. I don't think there was anything in my actions that would have made her doubt how I felt about her. In regards to sacrifice, I gave that thought too. If it wasn't career or child related, I can't think of anything I wouldn't have done for her.
  7. We did attempt discussing it. I tried to explain that I'm not sure what it means to be in love anymore. I thought I was in the past and I'm twice divorced now. And yes, exclusively.
  8. I guess it does sound like that, but when she expressed feelings for me, and while I could have easily said "I love you too", the overthinking me thought how blah, or patronizing, if that's the right word, sounded. The awkward pause hoping to think of something better to say, made it worse.
  9. I want to preface this by saying that this post may be a bit all over the place. I just got off what I believe to be the last phone call with my now ex girlfriend. I'm 55, she's 50. I don't seem to know what love really is anymore. I thought I was in love with a girl I was dating for 5 months, but I felt awkward saying it. We seemed to have great chemistry, mutually attracted to each other... We both came scarred from past marriages, so I attribute a lot of my issues to that. She definitely has self esteem issues, which I have as well, but not as much as I used to. She recently mentioned that she was in love with me, and it seemed like saying "I love you too" was just the easy thing to say back, then it turned into an awkward pause. Then I tried to explain myself and it all got effed up from there. Things went downhill from there. I really want to see a counselor, but I really don't think I can afford the additional expense right now. So here I am.
