Hello, Please any advice, sugestions would be greatly appreciated..IM 52 years old, divorced for 3 years after an almost 27 year marriage, ex was unfaithful. Anyway I married at 19 never really dated, and now I find myself trying to finagle dating, using OLD. My relationship of 9 months just ended about 6 weeks ago, I love this man, he is everything I have ever thought I wanted in a man. We hit it off well, Ibelieve we had it all, the chemistry, we got along so well, he introduced me to his family, friends, he met my friends, my daughter loves him, etc. He told me he has alot of fun with me, but feels like hes using me because he knows that I care for him a great deal nand he feels like he should care for me the way I care about him. He had been seperated for a year, when we first met, his divorce became final about 6 weeks after we started seeing each other. I held of becoming intimate with him until his divorce was final. He sobbed like a baby, because he never wanted to hurt me, and thats when I told him I loved him, he said he knew it, thats why he feels hes doing the right thing. BUt he says he wants to still date/be friends? I dont get it. Im thinking hes jus confused. I wrote him an email the next day telling him I was giving him his space/ and I wouldnt contact him. ITs been 6 weeks..I did text him 2 times, once on his birthday and another time after he had gotten out of the hospital, other than that nothing initiated by him. He told me this a few days before my birthday, then he took me out for a birthday dinner, and we were intimate. I bought him a puppy for Christmas, we were going to be co-parents, he knows my daughter and I love this dog, hes bringing her over tomorrow. I would love to discuss this further with him, but IVe decided I wont bring it up unless he does. IM going to be happy, and act like all is good when inside IM still hurting..I miss everything about "us" I believe he was so hurt from his marriage ending, apparently she tore his heart up,because he loved her so much and she didnt return it at all, he told me he doesnt want that for me. Wow thats why I love him so much, thatts why its so hard for me to let him go. His family really likes me and thinks we belong together, his mom put a picture of us on a wall in their home, one of us on a cruise..anyway..I want to be there for him, but at 52..Im not sure if I should wait...The on-line thing really isnt what I thought it was, hes the first one in the 3 years Ive been divorced that I can actually see my self with for the rest of my life. Thankyou for reading this long post, but any ideas or suggestions are welcome!
