he did this 3mos ago when he declared he had to go and stayed and stayed and just couldn't leave, he said it was too painful to go. BUT despite that, he couldn't put the effort or didn't have it in him to show me the love and reassurance needed to make this work.
I am actually looking forward to a new romance (which I will wait a while to get into, don't worry. Being separate isn't a desirable status for my prospective date (unless, of course he too is a father who is newly separated and we both need a friendly relationship to get us through things) and where I live, we can't get a divorce until a year has gone by unless the cheating spouse signs an affidavit to his actions requiring a speedy divorce.
I'm not in a rush but he may be if SHE enters into his life again. (puke, gag. hope she does and wipe that fantasy out of his head)
thanks for thinking of me.
