Jealous of an ex fling and feeling awful

Hi,
I'm having a bit of a meltdown and I need some good advice.
This winter a met a very hot guy whom I thought I could fall in love with. He gave me butterflies in my stomach and that hadn't happened in years! Unfortunately he turned out to be a womaniser, he wasn't looking for a relationship and he only wanted sex. I told him no and he disappeared. My bubble burst, I was heartbroken and after a couple of month of doubts, of not seeing him,when he looked for me again,I decided to take him for what he was: a fling. If I couldn't have him as a bf at leat I could have fun with him. We had sex 3 times and in the meantime we both had sex with other people. No drama.
I haven't heard from him in the last 2 months but, recently,checking that damn Facebook I noticed a girl, a polish hostess, who posted regularly on his page so I began checking her page. They 've been dating only 1 month. Then she began posting pictures of the 2 of them togheter, all of her friends commented on how gourgeous they were, what a nice couple and so on. When I asked him about it he said that she was "a particular little friend but no engagement" (of course! After just 1 month!)..... Now she posted a pic of the 2 of them kissing and I can't take it. And this is just the beginning! She's obvioulsy in love (and I can't blame her!) but I hate that she's posting all this trophy pics, triumphantly flaunting her catch to the world. He has broken so many hearts and now he's happy, just like that! No regrets, no guilt!

It's not that I'm jealous, I'm envious! I wanted to find love, I wanted to be the one to post pics of the 2 of us togheter. I realize that love is a wonderful thing and I wish them the best but I can't help but wondering when the hell it's going to happen to me. She's 29 and has found happiness with a hot, smart guy who's obviously falling hard for her: I'm almost 38 and I'm growing old alone. I had found him but I wasn't special enough to make him fall for me and now he has found his soulmate while I'm alone and desperate. Why did she have such luck while I'm left wandering alone in the dark?


I feel so sad, I'm crying all the time and taking antidepressants. Cry I'll never find the love of my life,I'm getting old and, even if I'm always out and about, meeting people, I can't find a man to fall in love with. He was the only one who touched my heart but obvioulsy I wasn't enough for him.

I think you have to step back a bit from assuming they are in love, soulmates, etc.  They have been dating one month!  Yeah, he found a cute girl to date & she has probably fallen for him but it doesn't mean it will last, esp. if he's a womanizer, as you say.
