As the title states, I’m almost 40 and have never been in a really LTR. The longest was a yr and a half and that was in my mid 20s. The relationships (or whatever you want to call them) I do get in tend to end in heartbreak. Last longish one was with someone who I believe suffered from narcissistic personality disorder and when it ended, I was physically and emotionally drained. I’m decent looking, independent, own my own home and have a pretty good sense of humor. What brings me here is I’ve done the online dating thing for about 10 yrs now. I always seem to get the first few dates but nothing after that. Because I’ve been burned, I tread lightly and don’t allow myself to get overly excited about anything when dating. The last man I dated was different. I met him online and realized I needed to give the “nice guy” a chance and I ended up really liking him. We dated for a couple of months, he suggested I meet his friends, he suggested we fly somewhere for his bday, he asked if my family/friends knew about him and he even hinted about being exclusive, just for him to break it off with me 4 days later. We were on the verge of being in a relationship just for it to be suddenly taken away. I. Was. Broken. to say the least. His excuse was he realized he wasn’t over his divorce. That was about 4 months ago. I looked him up on fb recently and saw he has a gf. As silly as it sounds, it cut pretty deep when I saw it. I just don’t get why I’m passed over. We weren’t really in a relationship but the potential was there, with him initiating it, just for him to change his mind and now he’s with someone else. Anyone else experience this? Is there something I could be doing that I’m not aware of that make men lose interest?
