I am totally gutted tonight and don't want to be alone but don't know where else to turn to. I am going through a divorce, but my relationship ended emotionally and sexually some years ago. We were basically house mates and we are still friends now. The separation and divorce process has been very amicable. So I met a lady online from another country. Neither of us were looking. I came to ds 3 years ago to learn about depression and celiac disease and have learnt a lot, even about sex in the healthy sex group.
Tonight I received a letter from the person I have genuinely fallen in love with saying, with no warning, that it was over. She has a very very good reason for saying so and I understand. But it hurts so much I am still stunned.
I am writing this here as a warning to everyone. Falling in love with someone overseas can be the most hurtful experience one can ever possibly imagine, especially when it ends for a good reason and there is nothing either can do about it. So please be careful and don't make my mistake. Knowing her will never be a mistake to me, falling in love with her certainly was, for both of us.
