Well, I have not spoken to my ex-bf for over a month. I'm sad. Sad for him and sad for me. Sad for him because I love and care about him a great deal and wanted the best for him. He has never been good with money and recently his car died on him and he's struggling financially. Sad for me because I realize our major area of incompatability is too large to overcome.
Maybe I should give a little background to help elucidate the matter. I'm 45 never married, no children. I've been struggling with depression since my 20's. Along with that I put a great focus on finding my career so didn't have much left to practice the art of dating.
