Dating spouse during separation
I need to let go of my fairy-tale, romantic-movie fantasies.Everything that comes with a relationship can be counted — in years, losses, gains, money, friends, family.
He didn’t try to hold my hand, hug me, or even really get close at all.
I can’t change him or this night, so I have to work on changing me.
Was it in a situation were you knew the relationship was over 100%?
Or did he/she do whatever they wanted in spite of you trying to reconcile with them? I guess I'm just a one person soul-mate for a lifetime person, but am realizing it's not realistic.
In some cases this may even be the stated purpose: partners (one or both) may openly proclaim that they want to see other people to relieve emotional or sexual frustration, and/or to reassure themselves that their partners are truly the ones they want to be with.
