becksy Posted September 10, 2017 Share Posted September 10, 2017 I am posting to ask if others have had an experience like the one I am currently experiencing. I had a brief -- 3 month -- relationship with a man I knew 40 years ago when we were in college. We became re-acquainted on social media and quickly fell in love. We were both (seemingly) extremely happy and voiced our love for each other many times a day. I was totally blindsided when he sent me an email saying that the nature of our relationship did not work for him and that his feelings had changed. I accepted his decision with grace and thanked him for helping me get out of an emotional rut and wished him the best. He has since sent emails saying how much he misses me although he is very careful to say he is not in love with me. For example, he wrote: "If I picture your face with that whimsical smile and the light in your eyes, it is very hard for me not to smile here in _____. It's true that I'm the one who did the breaking up and prompted pain and heartache in you. It's also true that the absence of (me) and the end of something so astonishingly lovely and fun and good covers an area bigger than New England itself." this feels like pouring salt on the wound, but he is not a cruel person. I am so confused. Any thoughts? Link to comment
