    Default Single Again...

    Okay,

    Here's the deal. Racheal and I are no longer together. Long story short, she had an opportunity to live with her kids again but it required her moving out of the area and reuniting with her ex-husband who wants to make things right this time in their relationship. I have no hard feelings at all because I know how important her kids are to her and would never get in the way of her having the opportunity of being in their lives 24/7. We have had ups and downs and things have been a bit tough but she needed to go for the sole fact that her calling is to be a mom, not a girlfriend. I hope things work out for her and she will always be in my thoughts and prayers.

    I'm sure there will be times when I miss her and times I am bitter but it's all good...

    I am looking at this as an opportunity to figure out what the hell to do without thinking about anyone else. Call it selfish, whatever. It's just me again.

    So I guess with a lot more free time on my hands, you people here will be seein' more of me around these parts... (Cue the Welcome Back Kotter theme)

    To all of the TLW crew, I'm sorry for not calling or talkin' to y'all more. All of you have been in my thoughts even though I've been MIA the last couple of years...

    Well you definitely have the right idea, I've been trying to figure myself out since my ex left in June. We had a lot planned together, but I know now that I was far too concerned with her and not enough with myself, but I couldn't figure it out as quick as you seem to have.

    Tough times for sure, but I admire your honesty and your philosophical and unselfish attitude.

    Make sure you take care of yourself for a little while. I hope things work out for the best for you.

    I'll spare you the cliches about opportunites etc. Good luck my friend.

    If you were at all selfish, you'd have clung to her like lint and not allowed her to reunite with her kids. You are a better class of human for that alone.

    Take a bow, man. You've earned it.

    No kidding. You really have to care for someone to want the best for them, especially when it means turning them loose.

    that's gotta suck. hopefully things work out for her and she didn't jet on you for nothing. hopefully you'll find someone who makes you just as happy if not moreso.

    Man, my hats go off to you. I did that very same thing about 20 years ago, and it is hard to let go and the healing process is going to take time. But, Out of no where and to this day i have no clue where it came from was a poster of a setting of cabo san lucas on the pacific side of the ARCO (Ark) on the very bottom it read,"BELIEVE.......""It is said that whenever God closes a door, he opens a window"------traditional proverb-------


    Im not taking anthing away from you, but trust me it's true. some minor hic ups along the way, but in time those wounds will heal and someone will come into your life. Hell, it may be the person you would least expect, but as she has found her path, so must you. Just don't go looking so fast, cause it may backfire because it's still raw. Remember, like a plant when it's first seeded, take care of it, feed with adequete water and sunshine and it will grow. Im not talking about your next relelationship, Im talking about you.

    I hope this helps in some way, though i don't know you, but can relate in some way

    Hang in there. Been there, done that. Just ended 14 years in June. Finding that it's still a process defining what "normal" is, especially with no kids all of a sudden.

    You obviously have a great attitude about the whole thing. I know that there's times you have to repeat those things to yourself when you'd just rather punch a wall or just stay in bed all day (or both).

    Looks like you've gotten some good vibes from here already. We haven't talked in awhile, but you have come into thoughts lately as I'm in town right now. Maybe we could meet up somewhere. Anyway, sounds like you have a bit on you shoulders, keep strong my friend...Timi

    Sorry to hear Dodge.
    Although it sounds like she is trying to do right by her family.
    And it is very 'stand up' of you to be handling it the way you are.
    Give me a call if you need to talk.

    I hope everything else is getting better.

    Yep, yep. Right on, Chris.

    OK, caught up with the reading here and the PMs you sent. Finally replied to you, Brian. We'll talk more soon.

    That has to be a tough thing to do. If my current girlfriend told me that she was reuniting with her ex to spend more time with her kids, I probably wouldn't handle it as well as you seem to have handled it.

    You seem like a good guy and I wish you the best.
