marshmallow107 Posted August 3, 2019 Share Posted August 3, 2019 So...for those of you who followed my last thread...you were right. We have had to end it. I have been seeing a wonderful man for the past 8 months who separated from his ex wife about 18 months before we first met. For the last couple of months we have been talking a lot about needing to slow things down as he deals with the pain from his ex leaving him. We really really wanted to make it work. But ultimately, he’s just not ready. He is over her, but he’s not over the pain of the break up. He wasn’t looking for a relationship when we met but we just ‘worked’ and he has always thought that I could be the perfect person for him in the long term. But not enough time has passed and he just can’t heal properly whilst I’m in his life. He can’t give me everything I deserve at this moment in time. It’s the hardest decision we have had to make, but we’ve decided to break up for now. Neither of us want this to happen, but we know that it’s what he needs at this moment in time. I am broken. I absolutely adore him. He is a wonderful man. I am still in the stage where I am hoping that we can come back together once he has worked through this. I think he wanted a break, not a break up, but he knew that wasn’t fair on me because who knows how long it will take? I know I can’t hold onto that which is why it has hit me so hard. I’ve been through my fair share of ty relationships and he was exactly what I was looking for in a man. Genuine, kind, honest. I really don’t want to let him go. Kind words would be appreciated. I’m feeling pretty vulnerable and low right now. Link to comment
