Obgyn,

Thank you for sharing your sorrow with us. I am so sorry to hear that this happened to you. I am sure that it must be painful. Each day is a new beginning. It will take many of these days to sort out why this thing had to happen. Don't try to figure everything out at once. Answers do not always come quickly or when we want them. Try to plan some things to keep you busy and to look forward to.
I went through a similar experience with a gal that I was dating after my wife passed away. I know that it really hurts.

That's great news! Glad to hear you've moved past your sad feelings of loss.

Hi obgyn,

The red flag here is "ex". If she is an ex there must be a good reason for that. I would be looking forward at this stage of life after your recent heartache. Not ever good to retrace your steps and trying to recreate the past never works.

Give yourself time. It is hard for those of us that are a bit older, but it is also a good time for reflection and introspection. I suffered a cheater after 7 years in a relationship. It is especially difficult because I thought having gotten together as two 40 something consenting, intelligent adults it would be a guarantee against such behavior, alas not always the case.

Take it easy and don't fall into anything because you feel lonely. Wishing you the very, very best and hope I am all wrong and everything works out perfectly for you.

Queenie
