It’s so difficult
After being married for 25 years I’ve now been divorced for about 14 months. By far the most difficult thing I’ve ever been through. I am used to the structure of marriage and absolutely hate being alone, although I do understand what I had needed to end because it wasn’t a good marriage. I FINALLY met a woman who I’m very attracted to and tho it’s only been a few weeks I’m crazy about her. She’s the same age as me(54) and has never been married so she’s ok with being alone and unattached. We communicate well, which the lack of was the demise of my marriage. I know I’m impatient but I know what makes me happy and being with her is awesome, I want to be with her 24/7. I know I need to slow down and not smother her but the truth is I’m needy for her companionship and love. The last thing I want to do is push her away but it’s so hard. She has shown and told me she likes me but it’s definitely not at the level that I feel about her. In my head I’m counting the days until I ask her to move in with me and then marry me. I just want to be in love and to be happy and I’m sure I can achieve that with her. I’ll never not treat her like a queen, and I’ll always put her first before myself- that’s basically my dating philosophy, that simple. Anyone have a helpful comment?
