Original Visitor's Question from a 51-60 year old Male
I just need some simple advice...maybe it's just a kick in the head..............I have been divorced for 7 years.

My problem:

I fell in love with a married woman and she fell in love with me. We made plans regularly (weekly) to meet and do things we both love to do. It was amazing....like we were made for each other. This lasted 6 months and we became best freinds. But as of a month ago she started feeling quilty. And now she has stated she wants to try to work on her marriage.

I know what love is. I know what right and wrong is. I feel horrible that I allowed myself to fall in love with a woman who is not available. I should have been smarter than that. But it happen and I can't say that given the chance to go back and stop it I would. I really love this woman. I am sick and my chest feels empty. My heart is broken........

What do I do to cope? We do have some communication but I think it's not helping me to heal. She has said that if her marriage doesnt work out I would be the first to know. But I know it's not smart to "wait" for her. But I can't stop thinking about her........

Just tell me some basic methods to cope with this problem. I cry several times a day. My heart is broken and I feel I lost the love of my life.
