How do I let go and get rid of the empty pain I feel in my heart?
Visitor's Question from a 31-40 year old Female
I met this man and we began dating. We only dated for a month but in that month we spent almost everyday and night together. Well on our 2nd date was when his divorce was finalized. His ex filed on Xmas eve and it was finalized like I said on our 2nd date. He had dated women in between this time and told me I was not a rebound. He said out of all the women he dated he really liked my the best. Well it was to good to be true because although he hates his ex he also carries a torch for her (the girl he first met). She used him and doesnt want anything to do with him now. He said that he needs time alone and shouldnt date anyone. However he has put his profile back online. He wants to be friends and still cares about me. He always says you never know what can happen. I can't seem to let go of the hope even though he has said move on, date, and be really happy. So my question is How do I let go and get rid of the empty pain I feel in my heart?
It sounds like you were a rebound after all.
Remain friends with him by calling every three weeks to ask him how he is doing and if you can do anything for him. This will keep you positively in his mind for future possibilities.
You let go the same way you have in the past. Get involved in other activities, with other men, and different thoughts. This will be more difficult if you are still remaining friends with him.
