I'm not sure what love is anymore. I thought I was in love with my ex-husband. We were married for 35 years. The marriage ended due to his mental illness that we both battled for years but just kept getting worse. I know I loved him but it was more in a maternal, caregiver way. About 2 years after the divorce I met and fell in love with a new man. I was head over heels in love.....happy every day.....missed him like crazy all the time. I thought "this is it".....until 5 months into the relationship he ended it. I was crushed!! I thought I had found true love. Now I met another man whom I have been seeing for 8 months. We decided to take things real slow which we have been doing. This man treats me like a princess. He's gentle and kind and responsible and I know he is good for me. But.....I don't feel that rush of love. I am not head over heels about him. My therapists says that love takes many forms and I may never be head over heels about someone again. My question is...do I end this relationship to hopefully find someone I can be head over heels in love with or do I persevere and hope that someday I will grow to love him. What is love anyway??? any ideas?
